July 13, 2021, Al Jazeera In Depth report from 3 diverse sources (Havana, Miami, Ottawa): https://youtu.be/J0zoP7Zm440
Unlike most US media, NPR included, this report from Al Jazeera gives significant focus to the need for Biden and the US to at least start to lift the US economic blockade/embargo. This also exposes the Miami-based organization (Cuba Decide) which appears to be significantly involved in at least packaging if not leading the recent manifestations in Cuba – replete with wild exaggerations in terms of the numbers, violence, and repeatedly refusing to address the US embargo, as sponsors evidently must want this stranglehold over Cuba to continue.
