Cuban president extols Ernesto Che Guevara’s example

Havana, Oct 8 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Saturday extolled the validity of the example of the Cuban-Argentinian guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara 55 years after his assassination in La Higuera, Bolivia.

Diaz-Canel presided over the main event to pay tribute to Che and his fellow guerrillas in the mausoleum that keeps their remains in the city of Santa Clara.

Earlier, on his Twitter account, the head of State wrote, “Today we wake up together with Cuban youths, in Santa Clara, the Cuban city where Che lives. There he is, with his vanguard detachment, to encourage us in the unstoppable march to victory.”

In another tweet, Diaz-Canel quoted the historic leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, who defined Che as “a model of a man who belongs to the future” and we have seen him reappear in every young person who faces daily difficulties as combat, “until Victory forever.”

The Cuban president recalled that “55 years ago, under orders from the empire, he was assassinated in a little school in La Higuera. A useless attempt at quelling the rebellion. His assassins only succeeded in infinitely multiplying his mobilizing example.”

The mausoleum that houses the remains of the group of combatants has become a place of worship for admirers of the figure of the legendary guerrilla and has been visited by more than five million people from all over the world.
