From the 1950s to the 1990s, the U.S. subjected Latin America to 18 military dictatorships and neoliberalism. The dictatorships killed about one million people and neoliberalism impoverished many countries. The Latin American Revolution is the people’s answer to these U.S. imperial strategies. This remarkable process is the culmination of decades of struggle by political parties and social and guerrilla movements inspired by both Latin America's liberator Simon Bolivar and its best-known revolutionary, Che Guevara.
