Bolivian President Evo Morales has paid tribute to the Argentine revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara on the 50th anniversary of the death.

“Today, as we commemorate half a century of Commandante Che Guevara’s passing to eternity, we are united in a single anti-imperialist, anti-colonial and anti-capitalist battle cry,” Morales said.

The Bolivian president then added that Che struggled for a world without “rich people” and “social classes.”

The indigenous president, the first in Bolivia, vowed to continue the “anti-imperialist fight” while emphasizing the need for new international humanitarianism.

Meanwhile, thousands of people went to the site of his murder by US-backed forces to commemorate his sacrifice.
