The triumph of the Cuban Revoultion in 1959 was part of a rising wave of anti-imperialist struggle throughout Latin America. Proving "that revoultion is possible," the Cuban people and their leadership set an example that accelerated already unfolding battles for land, labour and national sovereignty across the continent. Rodolfo Saldana was one of the Bolivians who joined ranks in 1966-67 with Ernesto Che Guevara to forge a revolutionary movement of workers, peasants, and young people to overturn the military dictatorship in Bolivia and open the road to socialist revolution in South America. Here, Saldana talks about the unresolved battles of the tin miners, peasants ands indigenous peoples of his country that created "fertile ground" for Guevara's revolutionary course and mark out the future of Bolivia and the Americas.
