Antonio Maceo (1845-1896)

In this regard, Cuban intellectuals are promoting a campaign to spread
the anti-imperialist and independence ideals of Antonio Maceo, one of the
most important military and political leaders of Cuba’s independence
struggles against Spain in the late 19th century.

Prensa Latina news agency reports that the campaign is organized by
the Association of Cuban Writers and Artists and it will run through
December 7, coinciding with the 114th anniversary of Maceo’s death in combat.

Meanwhile, the 82nd birthday of Che Guevara will also be celebrated in
Venezuela and Bolivia.

Ernesto Guevara (1928-1967)

In Caracas, Cuban and Venezuelan poets and writers will host a rally
at La Candelaria square while a documentary on the life of the
Cuban-Argentinean guerrilla will be screened at the Jose Marti Our
Americas House and at the National Library.

In Bolivia, Cuban internationalists will participate in a tribute in
La Higuera village, where the guerrilla commander was killed in 1967.

As part of this tribute, Cuban health professionals and education
specialists working in Bolivia visited historic sites linked to the life
of Che Guevara in the region of Vallegrande, where his remains were found
in 1997.
