On them. The worst part is that all of them are being tortured,” says Cuban-Spanish Javier Larondo.

Constant sonic attacks. They have progressively tried to poison him with water. He is cruel neurological is in a state of psychomotor degradation. They are slowly killing him and yet, when he manages to speak with his wife, which happens once in a very long time, she does so with the rest of the Cuban population. And generally launches some words of encouragement, encouragement to the world which are impressive. He doesn’t hate his jailers, he wants to free them. They are priceless words which only a great man like him can utter The energy he exudes exudes good feelings, he is experiencing all the fall and is impressive despite all the pain and all the martyrdom that his jailers assign him, who do it viciously.
