Luis Enrique Ferrer García
Luis Enrique Ferrer García is a Cuban dissident. He is married and has a daughter and a son.
To protest his unjust imprisonment, especially severe prison conditions and mistreatment by prison authorities, Ferrer García has engaged in numerous hunger strikes throughout his detention, often leaving him very ill and weak. He was the victim of numerous physical assaults by security guards and violent prisoners. According to Human Rights First, attacks are believed to be encouraged by prison authorities to harass and intimidate him.
Ferrer Garcia was freed in November 2010 and exiled with his family.
Garcia is the official representative of the Cuban Patriotic Union UNPACU outside of Cuba, the same organization that Wilmar Villar Mendoza belonged to. His brother, Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia is the founder and official representative of UNPACU inside the island.
