Motion Commomerating 50 Years of Che Guevara's Death

The African National Congress moves without notice: That the House

1) notes that the 9th October 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the CIA-ordered assassination of Che Guevara an "artist of revolutionary warfare";
2) recalls that half-century ago CIA-trained troops sent shock waves around the world when they executed the Cold War revolutionary icon in 1967;
3) acknowledges that by executing Che, his adversaries were trying to silence him and stall the struggles of the oppressed masses and the working class;
4) futher acknowledges that the opposite happened as Che became the symbol of resistance to oppression;
5) believes that his influence will still continue to inspire political activists decades after his death;
6) finds befitting the ceremonies held in Cuba and in Bolivia this month to honour and remember the contribution made by Ernesto Che Guevara in the struggle against imperialism and colonialism; and
7) calls upon South Africans to join Cuba, Bolivia and people of the world in remembering Che.
