    Juventud avileña rememora fusilamiento de estudiantes

    When the first rays of sunlight began to shine on the last Saturday of this November, a hundred members of the University Student Federation (FEU) and the Federation of High School Students (FEEM) were enlisting near Martí Park, from the city of Ciego de Ávila. Their goal was to carry out a march in commemoration of the unjust execution of eight medical students at the hands of the Spanish colonial government, in Havana, on a day like today in 1871.

    They came to the outskirts of the Roberto Rivas Fraga Provincial Library, also accompanied by a representation of the political and governmental authorities of the territory, a scene that was filled with declamations and slogans with the feelings of the new generations present there.

    Zara Rodríguez García, president of the FEU at the Dr. José Assef Yara University of Medical Sciences, expressed the commitment of the Ciego de Ávila student body to the nation's revolutionary process. She praised the importance of their colleagues in confronting the pandemic caused by COVID -19 and said that "Cuban youth is characterized by not forgetting the history of their country", that is why an event as cruel as the one that is being remembered today will always be remembered.

    In addition, the card that accredits as FEU students was delivered to a group of first-year university students who are studying Medicine, Stomatology, and a short-cycle nursing technician.

    During this November 27, social networks on the Internet will show virtual initiatives as a worthy tribute to these eight medical students and voices will be raised in a unison rejection of injustice and media manipulation.
