La Paz, Jun 14 (Prensa Latina) Bolivian President Luis Arce on Monday evoked Argentine-Cuban guerrilla fighter Ernesto Che Guevara's legacy, on his 93rd birthday.
 
On his Twitter account, the president described Guevara as a historic leader and recalled his militancy and action against injustices and the dignity of the peoples.

'(...) he inspires us to work relentlessly for the poorest. Until victory always!', Arce wrote on Twitter.

Guevara, known worldwide as Che, is one of the symbols of the guerrilla fight for the emancipation of the peoples in the mid-20th century.

Trained as a doctor, he was one of the main military leaders in the fight against the Fulgencio Batista's dictatorship in Cuba (1956-1958), and in the subsequent construction of the socialist state.

His liberating vocation took him to Africa, where independence movements for national liberation were beginning to take shape, and then to South America, where he led the guerrilla movement in Bolivia, where he was assassinated on October 9, 1967.
