SHAME: Giant portrait of the mass murderer Che Guevara now on display at the United Nations in Geneva, home of its ironically-named Human Rights Council. pic.twitter.com/M01fCPMpRs— Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) February 28, 2019
Consider that Guevara's claim to fame was the role he played along with Fidel and Raul Castro in installing a totalitarian communist regime in Cuba and attempting to spread this model using violent means in Africa and Latin America. Guevara was executed summarily on October 9, 1967 in La Higuera, Bolivia after he and his band of guerrillas were captured trying to overthrow the government there and install a Castro style regime. His is a legacy of blood and terror that should be lamented not celebrated.
Despite this record, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) decided on June 18, 2013 to add “The Life and Works of Che Guevara” to the World Registrar. UNESCO is providing funds to preserve Che Guevara’s papers.
There are consequences to having Guevara as an exemplar. The UN Human Rights Council's longest-serving official Jean Ziegler is a Che Guevara admirer. Ziegler was appointed to the UNHRC in 2000 at the request of the Castro regime. He also created and won the "Qaddafi Human Rights Prize."

UN experts continue to whitewash and cover up the humanitarian disaster unfolding in Venezuela. On February 28, 2019 UN Watch's Hillel Neuer exposed the right to food expert's cover up of the famine in Venezuela.
In the 1930s in Ukraine "journalist" Walter Duranty helped to cover up the deaths of millions in a famine manufactured by Josef Stalin's regime. Today so-called UN Human Rights experts are helping to cover up a famine in Venezuela.VIDEO: Today when I asked @UN_HRC "right to food" expert @HilalElver (chosen by the Castro regime) why she ignores the plight of millions of hungry #Venezuela families, she said "there are two sides of this conflict..."@KenRoth, will you condemn this ex-@HRW board member?— Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) February 28, 2019
Note to UNESCO and to the UN Human Rights Council: Che Guevara is still dead. The sooner his ideas join him on the ash heap of history the better for humanity. Perhaps the United Nations should honor and celebrate the life and writings of Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas instead.
This would be one step in the direction of the moral regeneration of this international organization.
