Artwork of Che on Trabajadores Sociales building, Vinales, Cuba
Trabajadores Sociales is the international federation of social workers.
“Hasta la victoria siempre” was the signoff used by Ernesto “Ché” Guevara in the last letter he wrote to Fidel Castro.
It translates as “Forever, Until Victory” or in other words, “Keep fighting until victory”. This was a reference to Cuba’s continued resistance to America as well as Che Guevara’s battle for liberation in Bolivia.
Shortly after writing the letter, Guevara was captured and executed by CIA Agent Félix Rodriguez. Rodriguez cut off one of Ché’s hands as a souvenir, removed another finger which he promptly sent to Fidel Castro, and took Ché’s watch which Rodriguez was still wearing and showing off decades later.
Thanks to everyone who visits & comments on my work
Due to time constraints I’ve decided that I’ll not spend time just saying individual thanks when someone comments on my work. Far better I feel to spend time looking at their portfolio & enjoying & commenting on their work, by way of thanks for visting & commenting on my work.
Of course I’ll say thank you to our hardworking hosts when featured, and sometimes you just have to answer a question, but apart from that I’m in silent mode.
