The imprint of the Argentine Cuban guerrilla joins the will to fight for justice for millions of people in all latitudes.
Che, along with the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, is one of the greatest revolutionary references from the second half of the 20th century to the present day
56 years this October 8 since the capture and serial killing of the Argentine Cuban guerrilla, Ernesto Che Guevara, his impression has been accompanied by the will to fight for justice for millions of people of all latitudes.
On October 8, 1956, he was wounded near the town of La Higuera when he participated in the Bolivian struggle for liberation, and because of the disability of his weapon, he fell into the hands of the enemy; hours later, he was shot in cold blood by order of the Central Intelligence Agency and the United States Government.
With the secret burial of his remains, his executioners tried to silence the example of a character marked by great human sensitivity, extensive knowledge of Latin American reality, and, as he revealed in a letter to his parents, a testament polished with the joy of an artist.
However, Ernesto Guevara, or simply Che as he was nicknamed by his fellow guerrillas in Cuba, along with the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, is one of the greatest revolutionary references from the second half of the 20th century to the present day.
“If a paradigm is needed, if a model is needed, if an example is needed to emulate to achieve such lofty goals, men like Che are essential, as are men and women who imitate him, being like him, and thinking like him, “said Fidel Castro when highlighting the qualities of the hero.
Che’s mortal remains were found and returned to Cuba in mid-1997. He rested with his fellow Bolivian guerrillas in a memorial in Santa Clara, a city in the center of this Antillean country that he helped to liberate.
Today’s anniversary marks in the Caribbean country the beginning of the day of Camilo-Che, which lasts until October 28, the date of the physical loss in a plane accident in 1959 of Camilo Cienfuegos, his guerrilla partner and beloved friend
The two revolutionary commanders were appointed by Fidel Castro to repeat what other Cuban independentists of the 19th century, such as Máximo Gómez and Antonio Maceo, had done in carrying the fight across the country by invading from east to west.
