After a lengthy hunger strike, on December 30, 2015, Vladimir Morera Bacallao was in a state of semi-consciousness, when state doctors, controlled by police officials, injected into his vein an unknown substance that rapidly affected his central nervous system, specifically his brain. From that moment on, Bacallao began to act incoherently, stating that he felt weight in his brain and that his eyesight was blurred. Once he realized that he was losing control over his will, Bacallao pulled out the tubes however, as of January 5, 2016 he continues in a similar state of confusion.
According to dissident Librado Linares, these acts were the result of the successful hunger strike and the concomitant international campaign which pressured the regime to attempt to attain via unknown substances what they could not achieve by using threats against Bacallao and his family.

Librado Linares García, general secretary of the Cuban Reflection Movement (Movimiento Cubano Reflexión) issues an international call for solidarity with political prisoner Vladimir Morera Bacallao unjustly held at Guamajal prison who has been on hunger strike since October 9, 2015 and has lost 40 kilograms in weight.
On April 19, 2015 the eve of the misnamed People's Power elections, Vladimir writes on the door of his house a message that read: "I vote for my freedom and not in an election where I cannot choose my president." That sparked the Rapid Response Brigade to carry out an act of repudiation (assault on the home).
He was sentenced for the supposed crime of damages, in the case 404/2015 and sentenced to 4 years imprisonment.
