Che had dedicated his life to revolution and justice, and his fight against tyranny and injustice transcended geographical boundaries
I have an old Che Guevara poster commemorating October 8 as the ‘Day of the guerrilla’ with the slogan: “This great humanity has said: ‘Enough’!” Different people look at history and events in conflicting ways; Cuba celebrates October 8 as the day of the guerrilla. The colonisers in the rest of the Americas commemorate it as ‘Columbus Day’, while those who suffered deprivation of their land and rights observe it as the ‘Indigenous People’s Day’. Incidentally, there were some 565 known tribes in the Americas that were dispossessed and disenfranchised in the name of progress and development.
