Che Guevara

     Che Guevara - Havanna

Che Guevara, real name Ernesto Guevara (1928-1967), Latin American guerrilla leader and revolutionary theorist, who became a hero to the New Left radicals of the 1960s. Born into a middle-class family in Rosario, Argentina, Guevara received a medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires in 1953. Convinced that revolution was the only remedy for Latin America’s social inequities, in 1954 he went to Mexico, where he joined exiled Cuban revolutionaries under Fidel Castro. In the late 1950s, he played an important role in Castro’s guerrilla war against Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, and when Castro came to power, he served as Cuba’s minister of industry (1961-1965). A strong opponent of U.S. influence in the Third World, he helped guide the Castro regime on its leftward and pro-Communist path. The author of two books on guerrilla warfare, Guevara advocated peasant-based revolutionary movements in the developing countries. He disappeared from Cuba in 1965, reappearing the following year as an insurgent leader in Bolivia. He was captured by the Bolivian army and executed near Vallegrande on October 8, 1967. Born in Argentina and trained as a physician, Che Guevara became a military commander for Fidel Castro from 1956 to 1959, during the Cuban revolution. Guevara opposed United States intervention in Latin American affairs and believed that only violent revolution could remedy the poverty of the masses. Guevara wrote two books about guerrilla warfare and led guerrilla forces in South American countries. He was captured and killed by Bolivian troops while leading a guerrilla band trying to overthrow the Bolivian government. Aprendimos a quererte desde la histórica altura donde el sol de tu bravura le puso un cerco a la muerte. Aquí se queda la clara, la entrañable transparencia, de tu querida presencia Comandante Che Guevara. Tu mano gloriosa y fuerte sobre la historia dispara cuando todo Santa Clara se despierta para verte. Aquí se queda la clara, la entrañable transparencia, de tu querida presencia Comandante Che Guevara. Vienes quemando la brisa con soles de primavera para plantar la bandera con la luz de tu sonrisa. Aquí se queda la clara, la entrañable transparencia, de tu querida presencia Comandante Che Guevara. Tu amor revolucionario te conduce a nueva empresa donde esperan la firmeza de tu brazo libertario. Aquí se queda la clara, la entrañable transparencia, de tu querida presencia Comandante Che Guevara. Seguiremos adelante como junto a ti seguimos y con Fidel te decimos: hasta siempre Comandante. Aquí se queda la clara, la entrañable transparencia, de tu querida presencia Comandante Che Guevara. (Carlos Puebla, 1965)
