The participants, carrying portraits of their national heroes, marched from Victims of Fascism Square through the city center to the Republic of Croatia Square, where they displayed a banner calling for this square to be given back its former name – Marshal Tito Square.

The first such march was held on 8 May 2018, and then on 8 May 2019, to celebrate the victory of the anti-fascist coalition in the Second World War. The event is called the Immortal Partisan Detachment, after a similar event, called the Immortal Regiment, launched in the Russian city of Tomsk in 2012 to honor Russian military and civilian casualties in the Second World War as part of Victory Day celebrations.

The Alliance of Antifascist Fighters and Antifascists of Croatia (SABA) said that this year’s march was dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the uprising and the formation of the First Partisan Detachment in Croatia.
