From The Socialist newspaper, 29 November 2007

Che Guevara meetings

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the death of Che Guevara, the Brighton branch of the Socialist Party held a public meeting.

Katt Jayawant

Despite attempts by the council to stop the meeting from being advertised, 25 people attended including eight people who were at their first Socialist Party meeting.

The discussion focused on what we can learn from looking critically at Che Guevara's ideas and methods, as well as the parallels between Latin America then and now. This included the governments of Guatemala and Venezuela today, which have introduced reforms to benefit working-class and poor people, but are yet to break with capitalism.

The role of the working class in a socialist revolution was also discussed, as was the relative failure of guerrilla methods outside Cuba.

There was enthusiastic participation at the meeting with a diverse range of opinions expressed.


There was another successful Socialist Party meeting about Che Guevara held in Leicester, with 20 people attending. Seven people went to the meeting thanks to posters put up to advertise the meeting to university students.

Phone 020 8988 8777 to order Che posters for your Socialist Party branch or Socialist Students society.
