Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia is one of the Group of 75 prisoners of conscience arrested during the "black spring" of 2003, and one of the final ones to be released in 2011 because of his refusal he to accept forced exile as a condition of his parole.
Since then, he has shown himself to be a man of conscience.
That again was on display this week when Ferrer, an independent journalist and leader of the opposition Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPAC), was violently arrested and held for three days, before his release Friday.
Not only did Ferrer protest his unjust arrest by starting a hunger strike, but he is continuing with his protest until after remaining UNPAC activists in jail are released and items seized from them are returned.
Ferrer told Radio Marti that his interrogators threatened him with house arrest or a return to prison if he and other activists did not moderate their activity.
