Morera, an independent trade unionist, in November was sentenced to 8 years in prison on trumped-up charges after he was arrested during a Castro mob's "act of repudiation" outside the home of another activist, Jorge Ramirez Calderon, who was sentenced to 4 years in prison.
In early January, Morera started a hunger strike to demand his freedom, vowing to continue his protest until "liberty or death."
