Che Guevara anniversary tour: Che's daughter, Aleida Guevara, 4-11 November 2017

Saturday, 4 November 2017, 10:00am

Monday 9 October 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the death of revolutionary leader and hero of the Cuban Revolution, Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara.

Che was executed by Bolivan army officer, Mario Terán, following orders from the CIA in Bolivia in 1967. Almost 40 years later Terán went to have cataract treatment to restore his sight by Cuban doctors operating in the country as part of the Operation Miracle programme.

To mark the anniversary of Che’s death, and to revisit his enduring legacy, and that of Fidel and the Cuban Revolution, CSC is hosting a tour with Che’s daughter, Aleida Guevara in November.

Aleida Guevara March is the eldest daughter of four children born to Ernesto "Che" Guevara and his second wife, Aleida March. She is a paediatrician, working at Havana’s William Solar Children’s Hospital and has also worked on medical brigades in Angola, Ecuador and Nicaragua.

Aleida will speak at a series of meetings and events including London, Belfast, Denbigh (North Wales), Sheffield, Manchester and Glasgow.
