Remembering Col. Cornelio Rojas Fernandez

Tonight on Cubanarama Blog Talk Radio, Barbara Rangel and Silvio Gonzalez, grandchildren of Col Rojas, along with guests, will discuss the life of Col. Cornelio Rojas Fernandez. Born in Cuba in the early 1900’s, following family tradition, he spent his life in the service of his country. He was Chief of Police in the Leoncio Vidal Regiment in Santa Clara when his detention was ordered by Che Guevara. His family was told that no harm would come to him, but as was typical of the regime’s tactics to terrorize the population, just days later, his family watched in horror when regular television programming was interrupted to broadcast his execution.

Guests include:

Agustin Blazquez – Cuban Filmmaker of Documentary “COVERING CUBA 7: Che Guevara. The other side of an Icon”
Steve Pichan – Songwriter / recording artist of “You don’t know Che”
Humberto Fontova – Author of book “Exposing the Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him”
Brian Llyod French – Author of book “Mojito!”
