Thus far this year, in addition, several activists have gone on hunger strikes to protest measures taken by the regime:
- In Holguín, the three Miranda Leyva brothers began a hunger strike on January 26. They are protesting because the regime is "threatening to take away their custody" of two minors in the family.
- In Santiago de Cuba UNPACU activist Tomás Núñez Madariaga, 66, went on a hunger strike, and stopped after 23 days. He had begun the protest to demand the return of the property that the authorities seized from him when he was arrested on January 2017: two cell phones, two flash drives, his passport, and some 600 Cuban pesos (about $25) "earned through as a self-employed worker"
- In Santa Clara activist Arianna López Roque and her husband, the imprisoned dissident Mitzael Díaz Paseiro, went on hunger strikes in January (she, at the door of her house, and he, in prison) to demand an end to the "mistreatment" suffered by Díaz Paseiro in jail. They suspended their protest when their demands were met.
