Bolivia, Oct 11 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Intellectual and Culture Minister, Abel Prieto, convened to stop the fascist onslaught in Our America and the world promoting among young people the ideas of Marti, Che Guevara and the great liberators.

Speaking to Prensa Latina during the tributes to Che in this Bolivian city and La Higuera, where he was assassinated 49 years ago on instructions from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, Prieto reflected on the current world situation.

Now, there is an attack against all progressive processes, and I think we need of paradigms, models that young people know of the history of our region, as Marti, Che, Bolivar and many others, who left a seed for future generations, he said.

Because we all know that the great project of the imperialism is that the contemporary youth keep busy on other more trivial things, and it is essential that those ideas remain in force, he said.

It is also essential that young cadres be trained as Bolivian Culture Minister, Marco Machicao, committed to the historical project of the great heroes of Our America, Prieto said.

He highlighted the recently concluded meeting of Culture Ministers from the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz and some of them were in Vallegrande to pay tribute to Ernesto Che Guevara.

The Cuban writer and leader stressed that the CELAC bill has much to do with Marti and Che. They were convinced that Our America and the Southern nations had to rise, creating two, three, many Vietnams.

Che was confident that, at short or long term, people would reach victory over imperialism, and that faith in victory, that tenacity and revolutionary stubbornness that is in Fidel and Raul Castro, Evo Morales and Hugo Chavez, have led our region to win an exceptional place in the world, he stressed. Prieto praised the role the Cuban Medical Brigade has played in many countries, those health collaborators have been here for 10 years with new waves of professionals and the same Guevara, revolutionary, Latin Americanist spirit, and they continue working to preserve these historic sites and defending Che's ideas.
