Ladies in White

Twitter has been ablaze with outraged tweets about the continuous arrests of the Ladies in White, a Catholic dissident group protesting for the release of political prisoners. The women are requesting an audience with the Pope during his visit but have not been obliged. The Ladies in White argue that Catholic doctrine supports their cause, and therefore, it is the Pope's responsibility to give them his attention. 

With almost 2,000 tweets over the past five days, Twitter users have shown heavy support for the Ladies and their cause:
