Bolivia Remembers Che Guevara on His 51st Anniversary

La Paz, Oct 7 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Argentinean guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara was remembered just a few days prior to the 51st anniversary of his assassination in La Higuera, in the southern province of Vallegrande, Bolivia.

The Semilla Juvenil Cafe in La Paz hosted diplomats, intellectuals and artists who paid tribute to the Argentine doctor who became a guerrilla and defender of the noblest causes of humanity.

The political advisor of the Cuban diplomatic mission in Bolivia, Eric Valdes, recalled episodes of Che’s revolutionary life, as he was known, since his meeting with Fidel Castro in Mexico in July 1955.

For her part, Isabel Vizcarra, a member of Fidel’s 90-year committee, considered the Heroic Guerrilla as ‘a man who loved life and whose thought and action must always be remembered’.

During the tribute, a documentary was screened depicting facets of Che’s life, from his birth on June 14, 1948 in Rosario, Argentina, until his death in 1967.
