Che Guevara to Get a Monument in Ireland
By Humberto Fontova

The city of Galway in Ireland plans a monument to Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna y Lynch. That last word in his full nomenclature accounts for the honor. Che’s maternal grandmother, Ana Isabel Lynch, was descended from Patrick Lynch of Galway, who emigrated to Argentina as a young lad in the mid-1800s. The City Council in heavily unionized Galway, where the Labour Party holds a majority, approved the plans for the monument unanimously. But the monument to union-buster Che Guevara was proposed and championed by city Councillor Billy Cameron, who boasts of his credentials as a “trade union activist.”…….

“Certainly we execute!” boasted Che Guevara while addressing the hallowed halls of the U.N. General Assembly Dec. 9, 1964. “And we will continue executing as long as it is necessary!” According to the “Black Book of Communism,” those firing-squad executions (murders,actually; execution implies a judicial process) had reached 16,000 by the end of the ’60s, the equivalent, given the relative populations, of almost a million executions in the U.S. “I don’t need proof to execute a man,” snapped Che to a judicial toady in 1959. “I only need proof that it’s necessary to execute him.”
