Where is the outrage?
(Via) Yesterday, the Castro dictatorship arrested Reina Luisa Tamayo Danger, an activist grandmother who is also the mother of deceased Cuban hunger strike political prisoner, Orlando Zapata Tamayo.
She was arrested along with 39 other dissidents who were accompanying her in a march to Orlando's grave site. Orlando Zapata Tamayo was a bricklayer who died after 85 days in a hunger strike in protest over lack of basic human rights in Cuba.
Take note -- 39 dissidents arrested in one afternoon. They all remain unaccounted for. According to Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez, Sra. Tamayo (that's her being arrested in the photo) has been hurt in the arrest.

Where's the outrage?
It is courageous people like this elderly lady, who will finally bring change to Cuba and eliminate the brutal nightmare that has ruled with an iron fist over that poor island since 1959.
Update: If you can understand Spanish, click here to hear Sra. Zapata Danger calling Radio Marti to report that they were being attacked. Her cell phone has been subsequently confiscated by the Cuban police.
Update: Babalu reports that "Reina's mouth has been busted, her knees are scraped, and her ribs have been injured from the beating she received yesterday."
“It was terrible. I could hear Reina from the dungeons cells. She said ‘Down with Fidel, Down with Raúl, Zapata lives!’.
