Rafael Alejandro Hernández Real, who says he was an agent of State
Security in Cuba — infiltrated into the Eastern Democratic Alliance — in
September 2014 chained himself in the Plaza Bolivar of Bogota, Colombia,
and now is on a hunger strike, demanding that he be allowed to go to the
United States, according to a report from Universo Increible.

“Ten young Cuban emigrants have declared a hunger and drink strike in
the immigration station at Acayucán, in the state of Veracruz, in order
to avoid being deported to Cuba. Right now there are seven men and three
women. The group of strikers has been increasing before the official
denials and threats of being returned to the island,” reports the news
source.

Hernández Real made himself known in 2008 when, together with Eliecer
Ávila and other students at the University of Information Sciences in
Havana, they questioned the then-president of the Peoples’ Power
National Assembly. Ricardo Alarcón. On that occasion Ávila and Hernández
Real called for the freedom to leave the country, to visit historic
sites of the world like “Che Guevara’s tomb in Bolivia,” and they
questioned the supposed unanimity of the general voting that takes place
in Cuba.
