The National Liberation Army monument and the pre-war victims of fascism are located in the village of Marezge in the heart of Kopra. The monument was erected in memory of the villagers who lost their lives while fighting the occupiers. On May 15, 1921, a fascist rebellion broke out in Mariez, threatening voters with not casting a vote for the Italian Nationalist Party. While they were still singing fascist songs, they threatened with bombs and self-immolation. Dropping bombs and shooting at the crowd is reminiscent of the terrorist attacks of Italian fascists. A primary school in Marezga was also named Today after the victory of the crowd was taken over by local Ivan Babic-Jagger. This prompted the villagers to fight with the tools and means they had, so the locals swept them away from the fascists with shovels and gallows and stoned them to death. The rebellion lasted for several days, while the fascists slaughtered civilians and angered the surrounding villages.
