Summary

“A revolutionary government is one that carries out an agrarian reform that transforms the system of property relations on the land – not just giving the peasants land that was not in use, but primarily giving the peasants land that 'was' in use, land that moreover had been stolen from the peasants in past epochs.” An international symbol of resistance to oppression, Che Guevara’s influence continues decades after his death. His life and his thoughts inspire activists world wide, including South Africa. The Cuban revolution directly influenced anti-apartheid struggles and was pivotal to South Africa’s democratic transition. In the current era, Guevara’s thoughts are as pertinent as ever to South Africa. 'Che Guevara Talks to Young People' brings together insights, analyses and examples from Guevara’s experience in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Addressing disaffected youth and students, this collection could not be more timely. “Che is an example and a model of what a revolutionary is. Che was a teacher and forger of human beings like himself. Consistent in his actions, he always practised what he preached, and he always demanded more of himself than of others.” – FIDEL CASTRO
