The action failed and several students were murdered by the Batista police in the area around Havana University.
Today's homage will start with a traditional rally in the Matanzas municipality of Cardenas, from the Echeverria birthplace to the cemetery where his remains lie.
FEU national president Adalberto Hernandez stated that higher education students will lay a wreath where the Matanza youth and some of his comrades-in-arms were killed.
Although the March 13 events did not reach their aims, they shook the tyranny and increased people's efforts toward the revolutionary triumph on January 1, 1959.
