Update: Artiles Montiel ceases Hunger Strike , while Guillermo Farinas Declares Himself in One

Just a few minutes ago, Guillermo Farinas declared though his Twitter account that the dissident Jorge Luis Artiles Montiel decided to cease his Hunger and Thirst Strike.

@chirusa32 Guillermo Farinas:

Jorge Luis Artiles Montiel determino Gracias a Dios cesar Huelga de Hambre y Sed. Comenzara a tomar agua a partir de las 12 m. Coco Farinas

Minutes after, Marti News reported that Farinas declared himself on hunger strike once again.  As we know, the dissident carried out an extensive hunger strike last year which took a heavy toll on his health.  Farinas was demanding that the government release the political prisoner of conscience from the group of the 75, especially those who were most sick.  This time, he is turning to his 24th hunger strike to demand that there be an independent investigation into the death of Juan Wilfredo Soto Garcia who was beat merciless by agents of the political police.
