40 year anniversary of Che's Death:
Che's legacy and the struggle for socialism in Latin America Today
Thursday Nov 15th, 7pm, Tufts University, Braker Hall room 113.
Free and Open Discussion hosted by Socialist Alternative
This October marked the 40th anniversary of the CIA backed execution in
Bolivia of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentinian born revolutionary who
played a heroic role in the Cuban revolution and dedicated his life to
spreading the socialist revolution to the rest of Latin America. Far from
eradicating Che and his ideas, his execution made him a legend, while his
image has become one of modern times; still representing for many the
struggle that Che embodied. But why was the Cuban revolution unsuccessful
in spreading to the rest of the continent? What does that mean for today in
the context of the resurgence of socialist ideas in Venezuela, Bolivia and
Brazil (etc.)? How do we continue the struggle wherre Che left off? Come
join the discussion as Socialist Alternative marks this important
anniversary in the history of the socialist movement.
