    El Sexto Resumed Hunger Strike Two Days Ago, According To His Mother

    14ymedio, 17 October 2015 — The artist Danilo Maldonado, “El Sexto,”
    resumed his hunger strike two days ago, his mother, Maria Victoria
    Machado, said on Saturday. By telephone from Valle Grande prison, the
    graffiti artist said he would maintain the strike until he is released.

    Last week El Sexto declared he would resume the hunger strike if he
    wasn’t freed within the first 15 days of October. He fasted for 24 days,
    stopping earlier this month when a lieutenant colonel, who identified
    himself as a “mediator,” assured him that he would be released in “less
    than 15 days”.

    In a statement on Friday, Amnesty International denounced that the Cuban
    authorities of failed “miserably” by not fulfilling the promise of
    freedom for Danilo Maldonado. The London-based organization believes
    that the artist is a prisoner of conscience and maintains that the
    attitude of Havana is “a painful illustration of the indifference of the
    Cuban government for freedom of expression.”

    El Sexto was arrested last December for organizing a performance with
    two pigs, painted with the names of Raul and Fidel.
