A gathering in Miami of exiled Cuban democracy and human rights activists
Tracey Eaton from Along the Malecon has photographs of a gathering last week in Miami of exiled Cuban democracy and human rights activists, many of them former prisoners of conscience.
Exiled dissidents discuss joining forces
Exiled Cuban dissidents gathered Sunday in Miami to talk about ways to unite opposition to Cuba's socialist government. The event was called "Primer Encuentro Fraternal de Opositores Cubanos." I am writing a story about the meeting for Cuba News.
Participants included Darsi Ferret, Francisco Chaviano, Pedro Pablo Álvarez, a dozen members of Las Damas de Blanco, including Josefa López and Matilde Jerez, and brothers Miguel, Ariel and Guido Sigler.
