Internet freedom and a hunger strike

Today I'm hosting a blogburst to honor Cuban dissident Guillermo Fariñas, who's on hunger strike to protest being denied internet access.

As Chez Diva says on her post,
He is trading his precious life via a hunger strike for the cause he believes in, bringing freedom of information to Cubans. He is simply asking for Internet Access for his country men and women. Fidel Castro’s government refuses to allow this to occur. What does Castro and the Communist government have to fear? Do they fear that the internet access will allow their citizens to seek information that will contradict the communist indoctrination they receive from the minute they are old enough to speak?
Tell your friends about this man, whose only right is to die for what he believes.
