Detail of the monument to the Victims of 10 March, in Recimil (2003)

In 1989, a censure motion brought the left wing back into power, led by a socialist mayor. The new city council decided to develop a clearer policy of memory, and to dedicate a 'Monument to the Victims of 10 March' to the workers from BazŠn who were shot dead by police during the demonstrations of 1972. The group of strongly expressive sculptures were designed by XoŠn Braxe, who once worked in the shipyards.
