PORT OF SPAIN (Reuters) - Trinidadian hunger striker Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh, in his 65th day of consuming no food or water, says he is prepared to continue his fast, even if it means giving up his life to stop construction of a controversial highway.

“Of course, I’m prepared to die for this cause,” Kublalsingh, 55, told Reuters in a raspy whisper during a visit on Thursday to his home in D'Abadie, 20 miles east of the capital, Port of Spain.
