Che Guevara

Ernesto "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 (1961-65).

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 world. He disappeared from Cuba in 1965, reappearing the following year as an insurgent leader in Bolivia. He was captured by the Bolivian army and shot near Vallegrande on Oct. 9, 1967.


Hasta Siempre

Aprendimos a quererte
Desde la historica 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
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
Como revolucionario
Que conducía nueva empresa
Donde espera la firmesa
De tu brazo libertario
Aquí se queda la clara
La entrañable transparencia
De tu querida presencia
Comandante Che Guevara
(hablado)
Seguiremos adelante
Como junto a tí seguimos
Y con Fidel te decimos
Hasta siempre Comandante
Aquí se queda la clara
La entrañable transparencia
De tu querida presencia
Comandante Che Guevara

Che: " Esa hora irá creciendo cada día que pase,
esa hora ya no prará más".
