Che Guevara

I mean I know he was a revolutionary, but what exactly was his purpose, what was he fighting for? Or against. Basically… Che Guevara was originally going to be a doctor in Argentina, but before he finished his degree Che and his friend took a motorcycle trip through South America. On this trip Che witnessed thousands of people who would work in factories all day, just to make a few dollars. When he saw this kind of poverty, he questioned why should only one man (or a small group of men) make all the profits ,when they are doing absolutly no work. Che came from a somewhat wealthy family which lost much of its money to careless workers. Ernesto "Che" Guevara became a communist to spread many communist ideologies including: Equal pay for equal work and everyone is treated the same. He eventually made his way north promoting many of his idea's of freedom. During this time Castro's rebellion in Cuba was slowing down. By now Che was gaining popularity. He decided to go to Mexico and sign up for Castro's cause. Whne he reached Cuba, Castro greated him and introduced him to many other communist genereals. This was the begging of Che's super star/ idol image. Cuba soon after became "liberated" (some would say) by the communists. All of a sudden communist revolutiopns began sparking up all over South America and even Africa. Che would go to the UN to talk infront of the world. After this he travelled to the Belgian Congo to help with the revolution there, and eventually Bolivia. In Bolivia, he was eventually captured by the Bolivian army. Its believed with proof that the CIA assisted in the capture and execicution of Che. People even say Cstro, one of Che's (closiest ally and friend) gave information to the CIA, but this theory kinda sounds ridiculous. Before Che was killed he was asked if he was thinking about his life, and he responded with "No, I am thinking about the revolution that will follow my death" (or something to these lines). He was then shot to death while tied down to a table. Che Guevara only wanted to improve the world through equality for all, even though his thoughts may have seem quite radical. He was most definetly a communist leader, but I think for the better, unlike most communist thinkers.

This is an edited speech cut up in three pieces from Ernesto Che Guevara's address to the General Assembly of the United Nations on December 11, 1964. You ca. . .
