Orlando Zapata's Mother Arrested, Again

Sunday, November 7, 2010
This morning, Reina Luisa Tamayo, the mother of deceased Cuban political prisoner, Orlando Zapata Tamayo, was once again arrested as she attempted to visit her son's grave in the eastern town of Banes.

According to blogger Yoani Sanchez, the Cuban military has the town under lockdown, and they've threatened to charge her with the infamous Law 88 (attempting against the "integrity" of the Castro brothers).

Note the contrast -- the Castro regime has undertaken a military display of force against the non-violent, moral power of this elderly woman, whose son died in a hunger strike protesting the tortures he was subjected to.

How feeble (and evil) must this regime be?

Will foreign news bureaus in Havana dignify their professions by reporting on this tragedy, or is it somehow fine for a mother to be harassed, beaten and arrested every week for trying to visit her son's grave?

Where is the outrage?
