WFTU Statement on the 90 years since the birth of Che

“People may die but never do their ideas”

Today, June 14, 2018, is the 90th anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest revolutionaries of the twentieth century, Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, known throughout the Latin American continent as “Che”.
