Chilean Magazine Dedicates Issue to Che

Santiago, Chile, Sep 29 (Prensa Latina) In a time of values, Che”s most important legacy is his legacy, Manuel Cabieses, director of the Chilean magazine Punto Final, wrote as a tribute to Ernesto Che Guevara.

On occasion of the 50th anniversary of Che’s assassination in Bolivia, on October 9, 1967, the publication also dedicated its cover to him with the title ‘Che Hoy y Mañana’ (Che Today and Tomorrow).

‘When Che was killed at La Higuera school, he was 39 years old. A brief and intense life. The depth of his ideas and the edge of his action place him among the great revolutionaries of last century,’ Cabieses wrote.

The prestigious Chilean writer and journalist stated that the heroic guerrilla fighter is destined to continue to inspire the new generations of fighters for social justice and brotherhood among human beings.

‘The most important thing of his message is that a leader cannot call to fight if he is not willing to run the same risks as his comrades,’ he emphasized.

Cabieses noted in another part of his article that Che was an example of modesty and honesty as a minister of Industries and president of the Central Bank of Cuba before returning to the guerrilla struggle.

He concluded his extensive analysis by saying that today’s socialism is inspired by Che and grows within the social movements.
