feliciano hernandez, 60, one of the most outspoken among the hunger strikers, had a stroke this evening. he is now at the hospital, alert and in stable condition. he was present at the rally that ended up in front of the ashe building this afternoon. on coming round, his first words to an SEIU organizer were: "go back, they need you more there."
our hearts go out to feliciano and his family, and to the remaining 7 hunger strikers.
