Cuban Collaborators in Bolivia Pay Tribute to Che

Cuban Collaborators in Bolivia Pay Tribute to Che        Vallegrande, Bolivia, Jun. 14. -Cubans working in cooperation programs in Bolivia will pay tribute to Argentine/Cuban guerrilla leader Ernesto Che Guevara to mark his 82nd birthday.

Luis Oliveros, the general coordinator of Cuban medical workers here, told Prensa Latina that on Monday, a historical site and a plaque would be unveiled in La Higuera, the small town where Che was killed in 1967.

Also, two Cuban doctors who have provided their services for two years in that Bolivian town will be replaced, and a tree will be planted symbolically.

The most prominent participants of Cuba's medical mission in the last few months will take part in the tribute, as well as a similar group from the post-literacy brigade, which includes Venezuelans.

Cuban doctors who are teaching here and some of the best Bolivian students from all over the country will attend the ceremony as well.

Ernesto Guevara was born in Altagracia, Argentina, on June 14, 1928, and was one of the main guerrilla leaders who commanded the victorious Revolution in Cuba on January 1, 1959.

His internationalist calling led him to carry out military missions in other nations, and he was murdered in Bolivia on October 9, 1967, while attempting to create a revolutionary movement in the Southern Cone. (Prensa Latina)
