Hunger Strike Portraits


Jose Ruis :”I am on hunger strike on behalf of my wife Juana Ortencia Rodriguez who needs a kidney transplant. I want the hospitals to stop turning patients away. People work and work, sometimes under false security numbers, and we pay taxes, but when it comes to help, to benefits, we are excluded. I want people to take the children into consideration, because this does not only affect the patients, it devastates entire families. I also wish my wife’s parents can come to the US to visit and to provide some comfort in this terrible time.”
