Havana, October 8 (RHC)-- More than 84,000 new elementary school students of the Jose Marti Pioneer Children Organization are paying Homage to Argentinean-Cuban guerrilla fighter Ernesto Che Guevara on the 46th anniversary of his death in Bolivia.
Ceremonies take place at schools, parks, squares and historic places, where the students receive a blue bandanna from their parents and teachers. This identifies them as organization members and they will wear it as part of their white and red school uniforms.
The Ernesto Che Guevara Memorial in the central city of Santa Clara is the main venue for the ceremonies. The sculptural complex treasures the mortal remains of Che, who is also known in Cuba as the Heroic Guerrilla, as well as those of his compatriots killed in Bolivia.
Songs and poems are part of the ceremony, affirming the commitment of the young generations of Cubans to the socialist revolution, their present and future, all expressed in the historic phrase “We will be like Che.”
