Pondblog links to an Aljazeera news piece [1] reporting that Cuba's most prominent female dissident, 60 year-old Marta Beatríz Roque, was beaten at her home by a pro-government mob this past Tuesday. The article states that Roque, who leads the Assembly for Promoting Civil Society, was about to leave her home to visit the home of a top US diplomat in Havana.
