Che: 50 Years After His Death

Ernesto Guevara, more commonly known as "Che," was Argentine by birth but was a committed internationalist. 

After helping successfully lead the 1959 Cuban Revolution and participating in African liberation struggles, he created a guerrilla army in Bolivia where he attempted to implement the foco theory of guerrilla struggle. 

Although he was captured and executed by U.S.-backed Bolivian soldiers in 1967, Che remains a symbol of resistance, determination and hope for a better world.

teleSUR takes a look at the 50th anniversary of his assasination and events commemorating his legacy.
