(AP) — President Joe Biden on Monday called protests in Cuba “remarkable” and a “clarion call for freedom,” as he praised thousands of Cubans who took the streets on the island to protest food shortages and high prices amid the coronavirus crisis.

The demonstrations marked one of biggest Cuban antigovernment displays in recent memory. Biden comments were a notable change in tone from his old boss, former President Barack Obama, who sought to ease decades of tensions between Washington and Havana while loosening U.S. imposed sanctions. Obama’s effort was ultimately reversed by Republican President Donald Trump.
