Onwards Forever, Commander! Che Guevara 40 years Later
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the execution of Ernesto "Che" Guevara in the jungles of Bolivia. In this interview, Greg Grandin explains why Che remains an important figure in Latin American protest movements, especially those against neoliberal globalization. This photo display provides a portrait of the figure and his legacy in Cuba (at least in terms of great monuments).
Finally, doctors in Venezuela should be celebrating today as well--a 60% raise in honor of Che, who was a trained physician.
