From the University Hill, after a brief act, the San Lázaro protesters will depart down towards the esplanade of La Punta, where on a day like today, but in 1871, eight medical students were shot, victims of hatred, impotence and the fear of Spanish colonialism, which then ruled the island's destinies.

Guards of honor follow each other early on at the monument erected right in the place where 150 years ago that monstrous crime was carried out, which took the lives of Carlos Verdugo, Alonso Álvarez, Carlos de la Torre, Ángel Laborde, Anacleto Bermúdez, José de Marcos Medina, Pascual Rodríguez and Eladio González.
