Leader of Cuban opposition group Ladies in White to meet with exiles in Miami

One of the founders of a Cuban opposition group awarded Europe's top human rights prize is meeting with exiles in Miami.

Berta Soler will visit the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies at the University of Miami on Saturday.

Soler is a co-founder of the Ladies in White, a group of wives and mothers formed in 2003 after the arrests of 75 government opponents.

The Cuban government has detained the women from time to time and sent pro-government crowds to shout at them. But their demonstrations proved successful. All of the political prisoners arrested in the crackdown a decade ago have since been released.

Soler and other members accepted the European Union's Sakharov Prize on Tuesday, eight years after receiving the award.
