Arrested again

Remember this Cuban grandmother who was arrested, beaten up and jailed for the simple act of trying to visit her son's grave?

She was arrested again yesterday for once again attempting to visit her son's burial site.

Amnesty International had already called for urgent action in this case. It has been ignored.

Where's the outrage?
