Dozens gathered in front of the newly recognized Cuban Embassy in Washington on Monday, either to witness the historic flag-raising or to protest against the new rapprochement. The embassy was reopened after the US and Cuba officially resumed diplomatic relations. These were halted in 1961, when the US started imposing a comprehensive economic, commercial and financial embargo against Cuba in response to the country's nationalization of supposed US corporate property.
