Che Guevara’s Granddaughter Goes Nude For PETA Campaign

Che Guevara was a Marxist leader who started a revolution in Cuba. Now his granddaughter is following in his footsteps, starting her own revolution … for vegetarians.

According to the Associated Press, Lydia Guevara posed semi-nude recently in a PETA campaign that tells viewers to “join the vegetarian revolution,” said PETA spokesman Michael McGraw.

The 24-year-old will appear in a print campaign expected to debut in October in magazines and posters, launching first in Argentina — where Che Guevara was born — followed by campaigns across the globe.

She was approached by PETA in recent months after the organization found out she was a vegetarian.

In the ad, Lydia Guevara wears camouflage pants, a red beret, and bandoliers of baby carrots, reminiscent of her Che’s stylized image that has become a global symbol of counterculture.

“It very much evokes the tag line of the ad, which is ‘Join the vegetarian revolution,'” PETA spokesman Michael McGraw told the AP. “It’s an homage of sorts to her late grandfather.”

Lydia Guevara is the granddaughter of Argentine revolutionary Che Guevara, who helped Fidel Castro’s 26th of July Movement overthrow U.S.-backed Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista in the 1950s. He was executed in Bolivia in 1967.

  1. Guevera was a murdering thug. I’m surprised she hasn’t changed her name.

  2. So, let me get this straight………I should eat more carrots because the grand-daughter of a terrorist eats carrots?? The girl is almost as big a loser as her grandfather.

  3. I was gonna say something, but the two people above me got it right. Che Guevara led millions of people to be slaughtered in the name of the failed theory known as Marxism.

  4. Fuck Vegetarianism and Veganism! These guys walking around like they gonna live 300 years and shit. They probably end up only as bland tasting maggot food. Where my fried chicken at?

  5. How was he a terrorist? Do you just use that term for everybody who you don’t like?

  6. Hahahahahahahahahahahaha The old F@$*%$ is finally dead. Killed by silliness in the end. What a fitting end.

  7. Guevara was a cold blooded murderer he led firing squads & personally delivered the coup de grace against Cubans who stood up against the regime of the Castro’s. He was also dedicated to changing Latin America into a Marxist state by terror and the murder of peasants for his purpose.

    This is a great symbol for a group that insists on ethical treatment of animals but apparently not humans.

  8. Guys,… I think all who hate “Che” must watch the movie “Motorcycle diaries”, u ll get to know his true identity. And fyi, the movie is scripted and directed by your own American Brothers who sought truth in Che Guvara’s ideologies….

  9. If you read and learn carefully, you will find Fidel Castro and Che Guevara actually kept the United States from taking over all of South America. They kept Cuba from being turned into another Puerto Rico, so what is wrong with fighting to keep their country independent. Marxism is separate, and Cuban people sure showed Kennedy what they could do…

  10. Ganesh, how can you be so naive to believe everything that you see in a movie. You watch “Motorcycle diaries” and that is all you base your knowledge on?

    One must read the real history of this man who turned out to be a tyrant and a murderer.

    And what a silly granddaughter he has. Would this make him proud??? I just have to laugh!!!!!

  11. “Che Guevara led millions of people to be slaughtered in the name of the failed theory known as Marxism”

    you gotta be kidding me with that right there…
    whats the difference between him and what the US has done since y’all arrived to this continent? first yall killed native americans..then brought slaves to this continent…. US is the only country who has ever used an atomic bomb against civilians…and recently the war on iraq…
