Biography

Ernesto "Che" Guevara (born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina) commonly known as "el Che" or simply "Che" was a Marxist revolutionary and Cuban guerrilla leader, later a member of the top echelon of the Cuban Communist regime.

In studies, he was little politically active, but still took part in student demonstrations against President Juan Perón. In 1951, while he was still studying medicine, traveled the 23-year-old Guevara and his 29-year-old friend, Alberto Granado, through parts of South America, a journey that took several months and shaped his political views. It brought middle-class boy Guevara in close contact with poverty, exploitation and oppression that the vast majority of the population - farm workers, indigenous people, workers and poor farmers - was subjected, and which still characterizes many countries in Latin America.

The experiences of the trip convinced him that only a revolutionary upheaval could remove the economic disparities and create social justice. With this conviction, he began to read Marxist literature and engage in the Guatemalan revolution under President Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán.

Later he became a member of Fidel Castro's 26th July-motion. He was appointed by Castro to the commander, the one next to the Castro to have this position. In this capacity he showed great brutality and shot and killed several times, even members of his own motion for failure to "discipline". After Castro came to power in Cuba in 1959, Guevara was responsible for the executions of opponents of the regime, and was later appointed minister of industry and head of the National Bank. Guevara was the architect of the Cuban Communist regime's close relationship with the Soviet Union, and it was Guevara who had Soviet nuclear weapons stationed in Cuba and aimed at the United States, which led to the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. In 1965 he left Cuba, to participate in revolutions in other parts of the world. We drove first to the Congo-Kinshasa (later the Democratic Republic of Congo) and then to Bolivia where he was captured in a CIA-led operation in conjunction with the Bolivian army.

While Che Guevara was in captivity in the village of La Higuera, Bolivia, he was 9 October 1967 executed by Mario Teran, a Bolivian officer.
