In this photo taken Monday, June 17, 2013, lawyer Nguyen Thi Duong Ha stands in the courtyard of her home in downtown Hanoi, Vietnam. Her husband Cu Huy Ha Vu is entering the fourth week of a prison hunger strike to protest alleged poor treatment. The statues seen in her background are of Vu's father, the poet Cu Huy Can, left, and his uncle Xuan Dieu, also a famous poet (right). Vu was jailed after suing the prime minister and calling for multiparty democracy. His strike comes amid an intensifying crackdown on dissident, and illustrates how the government's most outspoken critics speak out despite threats to their health and safety.
