Bolivia: Che Guevara Increasingly Present

La Higuera, Bolivia, Oct 8. -After 54 years of his murder in this humble town, iconic revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara is today ever more present in the work of internationalist physicians, teachers and diplomats.Hundreds of people will remember Che Guevara in this eastern Bolivian region for the relevance of his life, action and work. They traveled here to visit historical sites such as the replica of the school where he was killed on October 9, 1967.

Members of the diplomatic, medical, education missions and social workers from Cuba and Venezuela, who are providing services to the democratic and cultural Revolution President Evo Morales is leading since 2006, are attending the ceremony.

Participants in the activity will pay tribute to Che’s memory and legacy, and join their voices for Commander Che Guevara’s relevance and struggles for social justice and equality in Latin America and the world.

They also visited the grave where Tamara Bunke, known as Tania la Guerrillera, was initially buried. She was the only woman who participated in Che’s revolutionary action in Bolivia.

The activity became support to the release of five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in the United States for over 13 years, for preventing terrorist actions against the island by anti-Cuban groups settled in that northern country. (Prensa Latina)
