    14ymedio, Havana, 7 October 2015 – The mother of Danilo Maldonado, El
    Sexto, has talked by phone with the artist, who reaffirmed his decision
    to resume his hunger strike if he is not released before 15 October.
    Captive in Valle Grande prison, the graffiti artist says he is willing
    to return to fasting, even in the midst of his recovery from 24 days
    without food that ended earlier this month.

    Maria Victoria Machado told 14ymedio that she was able to speak for
    three minutes on Wednesday with graffiti artist and this he told her his
    decision to stop eating again starting next Thursday if they do not
    proceed with his release.

    Maldonado also said he had been “well treated” by doctors in the prison
    and that he was “much better.” His mother, meanwhile, told him that the
    file of his case “is still with the prosecution,” without any new
    response from the legal authorities.

    Machado also said that on Tuesday night she received a call from Amnesty
    International asking for authorization to demand the release of her son
    at the United Nations. The human rights organization considers El Sexto
    a “prisoner of conscience.”
