Mankind has advanced through centuries from barbarism to civilisation. There has always been struggle in this advancement – bitter struggle between the classes. The struggles have been lasting for centuries. Against slavery, against feudalism, against capitalism and so on. In these crucial fights there have been crusaders, who led these movements for the advancement of the society and to defend the underdogs.
Spartacus, Jesus Christ, Basavanna, Rani Lakshmi Bai, Rana Pratap, Tippu Sultan, Bhagat Singh, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Chandrasekhar Azad, thousands of Communists killed by the British and the Congress Government are all part of these huge army of martyrs.
And Che Guevara, the eternal revolutionary, who sacrificed himself at the altar of freedom of the Latin American countries is one of these great change makers of history.
Che Guevara was murdered by the mercenaries of the Bolivian Dictatorship during the guerrilla warfare on 9th October 1967. He was part of the Cuban Revolution and was a minister in the Cuban Government led by Fidel Castro and his comrade in arms. But he left everything and continued his journey for the freedom of the entire Latin American countries.
Che Guevara, the eternal revolutionary, is once again remembered on his 51st martyrdom day, 9th October 2018.
Red Salute to Che!
