I knew first-hand his virtues, he was a leader with a lot of charisma who demanded more from himself than from his comrades, a true enemy of privileges, stressed the then technical communications technician of the guerrilla in the activity, organized around the 90th anniversary of the birthday of the revolutionary, which is commemorated tomorrow.
According to Escandon, faced with a very complex scenario, Che established that one could not be late for the guard, and whoever did it, did not have lunch the next day.
‘We were surrounded and under enemy pressure that forced us to reinforce our vigilance, the guerrilla leader himself arrived late at the post, and although his reasons were justified, the next day he didn’t eat lunch,’ Escandon added.
On Wednesday, the capital’s Hotel Nacional hosted the presentation of a book with around a hundred little-known images of Che Guevara, also part of the activities for the 90th anniversary of his birth.
