Bolivia Appreciation Day

So dubbed by Babalu blog, this being the anniversary of when angry Bolivian peasants plugged Che Guevara. If you hit the link, just keep scrolling. Lots of raging cryptofascist Cuban goodness in there.

Here's just a taste of how Cubans react to Che:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - (KRT) - Plans to show a critically acclaimed movie about Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara's youth as part of Hispanic Heritage Month have placed Broward County's library system under siege, facing charges of both insensitivity and censorship.

"The Motorcycle Diaries" was supposed to air Monday evening as part of the heritage festival's lineup that also includes a puppet show of Don Quixote, flamenco dancing and the movie "Mask of Zorro." After a first attack by Hispanic activists who say Guevara killed and tortured their friends and family, the library is now under fire from civil libertarians for deciding to yank the film.


Who would you rather have mad at you: a bunch of hippy lawyers, or the entire Cuban community? The library made the right call.

Unfortunately, not all of the Latin world is as educated about Che as actual Cubans are:

The 38th anniversary of the falling in combat of guerrilla fighter Ernesto Che Guevara was commemorated with a ceremony at Santo Domingo Autonomous University (UASD).


The event, organized by the Campaign of Solidarity with Cuba in the Dominican Republic, marked the beginning of activities taking part in several cities.


What can you say to that?
The only response to it is this.

I'm not talking about Bolivia,
And I don't want to change your life
But there's a warm wind blowin' the stars around
And I'd really love to see you tonight

I've always loved that song, even though it doesn't make any damn sense.
