Αθήνα: Πλήθος κόσμου στην εκδήλωση για τα 55 χρόνια από την δολοφονία του Τσε Γκεβάρα

Ελληνικό Αρχείο Τσε Γκεβάρα © Guevaristas

Με τη συμμετοχή πλήθους κόσμου πραγματοποιήθηκε το Σάββατο στο «Studio» η κεντρική εκδήλωση που ξεκίνησε με ένα βίντεο, με τον Μάνο Λοΐζο να τραγουδάει τον «Τσε». Αμέσως μετά, τον λόγο πήρε ο πρέσβης της Κούβας στην Ελλάδα, Αραμίς Φουέντε Ερνάντες, ευχαριστώντας για τη διοργάνωση των εκδηλώσεων και καλωσορίζοντας την Αλέιδα. Μιλώντας για τον Τσε, σημείωσε μεταξύ άλλων ότι «βλέπουμε πιο καθαρά από ποτέ στις σημερινές συνθήκες ότι η γιγάντια φιγούρα του μας καλεί στην πάλη» και πρόσθεσε: «Ο Τσε ανύψωσε τις ιδέες του μαρξισμού – λενινισμού και γι’ αυτό το διεθνιστικό του πνεύμα είναι βαθιά ριζωμένο στον αγώνα των λαών μας ενάντια στις αδικίες που δημιουργεί η ιμπεριαλιστική καταπίεση». Τόνισε δε ότι συγκέντρωνε τις εξαιρετικές ιδιότητες του ανθρώπου της δράσης καθώς κι αυτές ενός στοχαστή, παλεύοντας για τους πιο ταπεινούς, τους πιο υποβαθμισμένους, συνέδεσε την τύχη του με τους φτωχούς και υπερασπιζόμενος αυτές τις ιδέες προσέφερε τη ζωή του στη…

    1. Athens: Numerous people at the 55th anniversary of the assassination of Che Guevara
      With the participation of a crowd of people, the main event that started with a video took place on Saturday at “Studio”, with Manos Loizos singing “Tse”. Immediately afterwards, the Ambassador of Cuba to Greece, Aramis Fuente Hernandez, took the floor, thanking him for organizing the events and welcoming Aleida. Speaking of Che, he noted, among other things, that “we see more clearly than ever in today’s circumstances that his giant figure calls us to struggle” and added: “Che elevated the ideas of Marxism – Leninism and that is why his internationalist spirit is deeply rooted in the struggle of our peoples against the injustices created by imperialist oppression.” He stressed that he was concentrating the exceptional qualities of the man of action as well as those of a thinker, fighting for the most humble, the most underprivileged, connected his fate with the poor and defending these ideas offered his life to Bolivia.
      In her turn, Alais Guevara, conveying her father’s words, spoke about his experiences from his travels to Latin America, his acquaintance with the pain and suffering of the oppressed and humble. He noted that “young Ernesto, feeling this, joins Fidel and Raoul in Mexico and becomes a revolutionary fighting for his beliefs. He manages to make many walk beside him, loved by an entire people. He is concerned about the formation of new generations and often talks to young people, stressing: “To be essentially human, to approach the best of the human, to develop sensitivity to the maximum, is to feel anxiety when a person is murdered in any corner of the world and to be happy when a flag of freedom is raised in any corner of the world. Nothing falls from the sky, we must forge the future, but we must be ready to fight forit. All our action is a war cry against imperialism. Let us join forces, let us promote solidarity, let us always fight for victory. ”
      Inspiration

      Doctor Elias Sioras conveyed words of Che chosen by the Federation of Hospital Doctors as a front page on its website, saying that “we Greek doctors are inspired by the revolutionary doctor Tse, as well as by figures such as Petros Kokkalis, Grigoris Lambrakis and others who put us before the ego”. He also spoke about Cuba’s tremendous work of solidarity in the field of Medicine around the world. He referred to Che’s tour of Latin America, his attempt to reach the leper ghetto. He transferred excerpts from his speech to Cuban medical students, inviting them to become revolutionary doctors. In 2005, internationalist medical brigades were founded to contribute to the treatment of diseases in every corner of the world, while their action stood out recently in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, while they were also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
      Babis Zafeiratos talked about another lesser known side of Che, his poetics. Even in its simplest poems the meadow emerges across an entire continent, he said. Traveling does not suffer so much from his asthma as from the crimes of imperialism and human suffering, he added, bringing to the public extracts from Che’s poems, but also from other Latin American poets’ lyrics about the Comandante. B.Safeiratos repeated excerpts from Che’s poems written between 1954 – ’56 and concluded with two of his own poems about Che.
      In the service of the struggle of the working class

      Nikos Karandreas, Professor Emeritus of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and President of the Hellenic Cuban Association of Friendship and Solidarity, referred to the critical thinking of Tse, in the face of economic and social problems, which naturally appeared after the victory of the Cuban Revolution, within the framework of the hard class struggle and the effort to repel imperialist aggression. He noted: “Che was a non-aligned spirit. His only commitment was to revolution, to contribute in every way to the development of revolutionary consciousness, of the revolutionary process. This commitment, starting from a teenage romanticism, developed through his participation in the Cuban Revolution, in the organized struggle led by Fidel Castro, in the rapid transformation of the revolution from anti-imperialist to socialist”.
      George Mavrikos, honorary president of the World Trade Union Federation, stressed that the myth of Che inspires the struggles of the working class even today. He recalled his lively conversations with the masses and the workers, which are a legacy today for the world we want to build. He was a realist revolutionary in the service of the working class, for socialism against his caricatures. There was no distance between his words and his actions. He dedicated all his strength to the class struggle for the liberation of peoples.
      Despina Markou, president of the Greek Committee for International Democratic Solidarity, stressed among other things: “The Cuban people, whom Tse loved so much, are going through a particularly difficult time today. The efforts of US imperialism to overthrow the Revolution have intensified even more, taking various forms, as we saw on 11 July 2021. It is not content with the economic, commercial and financial blockade that has lasted for more than 60 years. Today, Cuba needs our solidarity more than ever. ”
      Nikos Motas, on behalf of the Greek-Cuban League of Thessaloniki, stressed that today we are here to remember, inspire and draw strength from the values and ideals for which this communist revolutionary of practice and conscience sacrificed himself.
      At the closing of the event, Velissarios Kosyvakis talked about how the cinema saw Che, with the first documentary films filmed immediately after his death and many others filmed until today. The collection of “New Star” reaches 55 films, which are screened in the context of its events for the 55th anniversary of the death of the Comandante.
      Moved by what was said, Alayda Guevara wanted to say a few more words and noted, among other things: “I grew up in Cuba, in a socialist revolutionary country and it is relatively easy to be a revolutionary when you are born in such a place. But in this part of the world, where society takes you in the opposite direction, keeping revolutionary ideals is something more difficult. Thank you for the evening you gave me, because although 55 years have passed since his natural death, Che feels multiplied by the men and women of this country. ” Greeting the participants with enthusiasm, he sang a Cuban song, stirring up a very warm applause.
      The event was attended by George Marinos, member of the Communist Party of the Communist Party of Greece and MP of the Party, and Kostas Papadakis, member of the Communist Party of the Communist Party of the Communist Party of Greece and MEP. Former MEP Konstantina Kuneva also attended.

      Zoe Tiganouria and Nikos Theodorakis “dressed” the event in a short break between the speeches, singing the song “Comandante Che Guevara”, in Greek and Spanish.

      This is my own translation to English, one hour of work, a small gift from me to you, my dearest friend Ellen, wholeheartedly with all my wishes to you for health, peace, prosperity and an enldess love in your life!
      Anastasia
