At lunchtime on July 8, we, the prisoners of Sections 3, 4 and 5 reported to the dining room of the prison where we were met by Unit Chief Orlando Major Fernández Fernández and Michael Vesalles, Kitchen Chief, here at Canaleta in Ciego de Ávila, where they admit that the meal they were to serve us today had actually gone rotten. Several other prisoners confirmed to me that, fearing reprisal for letting this happen, Fernández Fernández ordered that the rotten fish be replaced by ham hash. The inmates where able to eat soon after. Of the 350 prisoners that live in the three sections combined, quite a few confirmed this isn’t the first time this situation had occurred.

To conclude, the reasons behind this situation are still unknown.

  1. I do not know if you will be able to read this, I am a new reader from England and I have no words to express how I feel after reading your posts. I am not sure of a god but I believe that there is something of a higher power out there and I only hope that one day you will live in a better place on this earth.
