Ladies in White receive Sakharov Peace Prize seals

HAVANA, February 22 (Shelyn Rojas / www.cubanet.org) – Members of the
Ladies in White, who protest the imprisonment of husbands and
other relatives, received Sakharov peace prize seals last weekend.

The Ladies in White were co-winners of the 2005 peace prize awarded by
the European parliament, but were unable to attend as the Cuban
government refused to give them exit visas.

After attending mass on Saturday at the Cathedral, the ladies went to
the home of Laura Pollán, wife of imprisoned Héctor Maseda
Gutiérrez, where the seals were distributed.

There was also a literary tea in honor of a book written by
Cuban-American singer Gloria Estefan, which was dedicated to the ladies.
