Campaign News | Sunday, 23 November 2008
Aleida Guevara, the daughter of Cuban-Argentinean guerrilla fighter Ernesto Che Guevara, said in Egypt that every honest person raising her or his voice against injustice becomes another CheGuevara.
"There are many honourable people in the world like Che," underscored the Cuban doctor, who called on the youths around the world to interpreting, rather than imitating, Che's example.
In a meeting with dozens of people at the building hosting the Egyptian Press Union, Doctor Guevara highlighted the importance of the role played by the youth in the revolutionary processes, reported Prensa Latina news agency.
Aleida Guevara answered questions from reporters and other Egyptians present at the meeting on her personal life, her condition of being a woman and her political activities; she received a commemorative plaque on behalf of the journalist gild.
She also criticized the tendency followed by some artists who depict her father's aureole as a fighter, when the most important aspect of Che was not to shoot, but to create the new man, added Aleida.
The Egypt-Cuba Friendship Association, along the Egypt-African Asian Peoples Solidarity Organization, invited Doctor Guevara to Cairo, where she had the opportunity to meet with several oustanding leaders of the African country.
