El Cubano Libre(English: The Free Cuban) was the paper that was established by Che Guevara during the midst of the Cuban Revolution. It was used as counter-propaganda to the Batista dictatorship and to inform the Cuban people about the mission of the July 26 Movement.
Origins [ edit ]
"As for the dissemination of our ideas, first we started a small newspaper, El Cubano Libre, in memory of those heroes of the jungle. Three or four issues came out under my directorship; it was later edited by Luis Orlando Rodriguez, and subsequently by Carlos Franqui, who gave it new impetus. We had a mimeograph machine brought up to us from the cities, on which the paper was printed."
El Cubano Libre was established by Guevara in November 1957 in the Sierra Maestra. Guevara took the name from a paper published by Cuban patriots during the independence wars against Spanish colonialism in the 19th century.
