Cuban human rights activist Dr. Darsi Ferrer arrived in Miami on Thursday, another freedom fighter sent into forced exile by the Castro regime.
Here is TV Marti's report on his arrival, which includes Dr. Ferrer's first media interview on free soil.
Ferrer, who in 2010 was declared by Amnesty of International to be a prisoner of conscience, said he is saddened by his exile, but he also made clear he has not given up a struggle that up to now, has cost him time with his family and so much more.
"I say to the Cuban people, take to the streets and reclaim freedom and demand your rights," Ferrer said.
As part of a settlement program for political refugees, Ferrer will be reunited with his wife and son in Chattanooga, Tenn., where they have been living since April.
