‘I’ll Wear No Prison Uniform Nor Meekly Serve My Time’
Deaglán de Bréadún
For whatever reason, this story is generating no interest. I have hardly heard it mentioned on radio news and even then it was well down the list of headlines.
A man has died on hunger-strike after refusing to wear a prison uniform. If it happened in Northern Ireland there would be world headlines and mass protests.
It happened in Cuba. The man’s name is Orlando Zapata Tamayo. He was an Amnesty prisoner of conscience. A plumber by trade.
