Today marks the 82nd birth anniversary of an extraordinary human being, one whose name will live through centuries and generations. He is none other than Ernesto Che Guevara, the legendary guerilla, statesman, thinker and revolutionary
In the words of his close comrade-in-arms Fidel Castro he was “ a person of total integrity, a person with a supreme sense of honour and absolute sincerity, a person of stoic and Spartan living habits, a person in whose conduct not one stain can be found.”
He was not only a man of action but also a visionary and a person of broad culture, a profound thinker. His great contribution was the building of a new man who would with selfless devotion contribute to the building of a new society in revolutionary Cuba.
