Ernesto "Che" Guevara, was a man of conscience, a crusader against injustice, oppression and misery. Ernesto was a man concerned for the poor, not a demagogue. He was a symbol of rebellion against hypocrisy, injustice, human suffering and a society without soul. My family who can you tell write about from our own struggle who had the total liberation of our people and poor people everywhere in mind...Talk to me!! The final epitaph In October 8, 1967, in his struggle against injustice he was captured near Vallegrande, Bolivia, by a unit of the Bolivian Army, under the direction of the American CIA. Next day, while he laid wounded and deprived of medical treatment, he was killed in cold blood by the cowards who have captured him. The order came from Lyndon B. Johnson, president of the United States of America.
