Che Guevara Cultural Memorial Santa Clara played an important part in Che’s fight for the Revolution. On December 28, 1958 Che’s army attacked the town and interrupted a train that was carrying weapons and supplies to Batista’s troops in the east. A two-day battle ensued, and Che’s army eventually captured the city. At the time, Santa Clara was known as el último reducto de la tiranía batistiana (the last fortress of Batista’s tyranny). Within a day of this victory, Batista fled Cuba. The Che Guevara Cultural Memorial is a larger-than-life memorial to Che. The Monumento de Che looms over the Plaza de la Revolución in Santa Clara. It includes a 22-foot-tall (7-m) bronze statue of Che wearing military fatigues and holding a rifle. Che’s farewell letter to Fidel (written in 1965) is inscribed on a large concrete block, and there’s a large bas-relief depiction of significant Revolutionary moments nearby. Beneath the Monumento de Che is the Museo de Che. You enter the museum on the north side of the complex, and may have to wait in line for a few minutes, as only a limited number of visitors are allowed inside the museum at one time. This museum is professional and well presented. Che’s history is on display all the way from childhood to death. Among other things, you’ll see the guns he used and the medical equipment he practiced with. There are numerous photos from his time in the Sierra Maestra, as well as an account of his capture of Santa Clara from Batista’s forces in 1958. Buenos Dias.

It is unfortunate that so few of today's committed fighters for black people refuse to read critical works that have proven invaluable to anti-colonial struggles around the world. We can't imagine a single giant of revolutionary struggle from either Afrika, Latin America, Asia who didn't study Marx and Lenin. To read and evaluate what they say don't make you a Marxist; hell, you ain't even gotta like the messenger to check out the message. Imagine if Ho Chi Minh or Marx or Cabral or Fanon or Nkrumah or Carlos Fonseca didn't read Marx because he was a white man, or because he may have said something that has racist overtones. Even if it is determined to be inadequate to our struggle, it should at least be read (and understood) before being rejected. Can't offer real criticism of something you don't know about,born as Mao Tse-tung might put it, "No investigation, no right to speak." #kwamenkrumah #amilcarcabral #frantzfanon #fidelcastro #cheguevara #malcolmx #hueypnewton #maotsetung #hochiminh #carlosfonseca #walterrodney #YakiYakubu #atibashanna #mwalimu #juliusnyerere #mwalimunyerere #communism #communist #socialism #socialism #communalism #collectivism #ujamaa #togetherwewillwin #freetheland
