Don't Erect a Monument to Che

Dear editors, As a victim of Che Guevara’s atrocities, as a historian, and as a Cuban of Irish descent, I am deeply disturbed by the fact that the city of Galway is planning to erect a monument to Ernesto "Che" Guevara. I don’t mind one bit if those behind this monstrous project want to believe lies — that’s their right in a truly free society — but it would be wrong to allow their abysmal ignorance or willful blindness to stand unchallenged.

Those who think highly of Che may be surprised to hear it, but they have way too much...


  1. Why on EARTH would Ireland want to build a monument to him? What made them decide to do this?!!! Are they just stupid?

  2. Thank God the idea has been shelved.
