Aleida Guevara and Mandela’s grandson call to end genocide in Gaza

Santiago, Chile, Mar 5 (Prensa Latina) Aleida Guevara, Che's daughter, and Nkosi Zwelivelile Mandela, Mandela's grandson, called on the international community to take actions to stop the massacre Israel is currently committing in the Gaza Strip, where more than 30,000 Palestinians have already died.

The daughter of the Argentine-Cuban revolutionary fighter, after attending the cultural meeting of world leaders for peace in Chile, told Prensa Latina that, “the blockade against Gaza must be broken, food and medicine must be allowed in, it is essential to learn that the Palestinian people should not continue to suffer from hunger and disease.”

Meanwhile, Zwelivelile Mandela warned that the role of the Global South should be to continue to support the struggle of the Palestinian people and demand an immediate end to the Israeli attacks that began not now but 75 years ago.

Both speakers at the forum, organized by the Academy of Christian Humanism University, are ambassadors of the Global Campaign to Return to Palestine.

Guevara, who is also a Cuban pediatrician, also deems it an honor to be the only female ambassador of this organization that supports the Palestinian cause, which is why, she said, she decided to represent the voice of children and women.

She explained that when her father, Ernesto Che Guevara, first visited Gaza in 1959, the ethnic war had already begun, and more than 270 villages had been displaced. Meanwhile, the grandson of former South African President Nelson Mandela reminded that the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and other countries continue to supply weapons and money to Tel Aviv and are also guilty of crimes against humanity.

Hundreds of people, including students, academicians, members of social organizations, and diplomats from countries such as Palestine, South Africa, Iran, Syria, Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, and Nicaragua, attended the meeting.
