Ariel Ruiz Urquiola enters his eighth day of hunger and thirst strike

This Monday, July 11, Cuban doctor Ariel Ruiz Urquiola is completing an eight-day thirst and hunger strike in front of the Palais Wilson in Geneva (Switzerland), where the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is based, and although he can no longer speak Many in front of the cameras remain firm in their position, said Evelyn Calderón, an activist and one of the people closest to the Cuban dissident.

“He is a very strong person, and his great conviction and sense of justice give him that,” Calderón assured in a video of just over four minutes in which he explains the situation of the former political prisoner on his eighth day of strike hunger, thirst and drug withdrawal.

“He does not give up and always has the courage to greet and thank all the people who have cared about him and have been interested in his case,” said Calderón, who also invited all good Cubans to continue demanding that the international community takes an interest in Ariel’s case.

In the video, the activist criticized the position of the High Commissioner for Human Rights of the United Nations Organization (UN), who has not spoken out about Ruiz Urquiola’s cause or about his health. “Today is a holiday, but not even on business days have they approached, we have not received any statement,” she said.

Since last week, the Cuban scientist has demanded the intervention of the UN for the recent prohibition of entry into the national territory applied to his sister, the academic Omara Ruiz Urquiola.

Likewise, on Monday, July 4, the biologist delivered a 57-page letter to the UN, which includes several complaints related to his state of health – the scientist accuses the island’s regime of having inoculated him with HIV – and the repression against his sister.

This Sunday the activist assured that “I am not in full physical condition, but what I can assure you is that, in my mind, I continue to be a person not only strong, but also focused on my convictions, on my ideas of struggle, and I will be here until my body resists in this fight between the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and the strength that an individual can show.
