The Ladies in White are a group of Cuban mothers and wives of 75
dissidents arrested in a 2003 government crackdown there. Last
week, as they marched through Havana to mark the anniversary of the
arrests, pro-government groups surrounded them and state security
agents put several in choke holds.
At Thursday's Miami demonstration, many brought children and
Estefan held up a photo of the Ladies in White and two gladiola
stems, the same flowers the Cuban dissidents carry when marching.
Beside her were other singers, including Pit Bull, Willy Chirino
and Luis Fonsi.
