    El Sexto’s Mother Fears for His Health in Prison, Where an Outbreak of Dengue Fever Has Occurred

    El Sexto’s Mother Fears for His Health in Prison, Where an Outbreak of
    Dengue Fever Has Occurred / Diario de Cuba, Maria Matienzo Puerto
    Posted on September 6, 2015

    Diario de Cuba, María Matienzo Puerto, Havana, 5 September 2015 — The
    mother of graffiti artist El Sexto (Danilo Maldonado), María Victoria
    Machado, following her visit to her son on Friday at Valle Grande
    prison, reports that her son’s case file is “lost.”

    In statements to Diario de Cuba, Machado expressed her anguish over this
    development, as well as for the health of her son, and the sanitary
    conditions in the prison. Because of health reasons, the artist ceased
    the hunger strike he had recently announced.

    “I was quite worried about the cold he had,” Machado said after having
    visited him in prison. “Although he had ceased the hunger strike, he
    barely touched any food. I could see he had no appetite.”

    Likewise, his mother said that her primary concern is the disappearance
    of his case file. “What they want to do is to prolong his imprisonment
    with no charges filed, nor justice served. They have kicked us around.
    And nobody can explain the file’s disappearance.”

    El Sexto told his mother how the inmates had gone for three days without
    drinking water, while an outbreak of dengue had led to daily fumigations
    at the prison.

    Another reprisal inflicted on the artist is to cross off his list of
    approved visitors any friends deemed objectionable by State Security.
