Wilman Villar (1980-2012)

 Cuban dissident Wilman Villar died on Jan. 19 after a hunger strike that lasted more than 50 days. Villar was protesting a four-year sentence he received for his anti-government activities and launched the hunger strike from his jail cell. See video of the street protest that landed him in prison.
Villar was born in Palma Soriano in eastern Cuba on May 30, 1980.
