Declan Ganley and Ernesto "Che" Guevara and General Liam Mellows
The far right US military provider, Declan Ganley, is objecting to a statue of a decendant of Galway, Ireland aka Ernesto "Che" Guevara being erected in the home of his ancestors, Galway, Ireland. Ganley claims Che was a mass murderer. He provides no evidence of this claim. There is no evidence that Che was either a murderer or a mass murderer.
In the same square that Che's stature will be erected is a statue of Liam Mellows the Irish republican guerrilla fighter
Liam Mellow was an Irish hero and his struggle inspired Che and others including Ghandi and Nelson Mandela.
Declan Ganley set up a military supply company called Rivada. In the last years he has managed to recruit people like General Richard Myers who became George W Bush's Chairman of the Joint Chiefs and led the War on Terror leading the USA'a attacks on Afganistan and Iraq until 2005 to his board of directors. The wars Meyers ran have lead to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians, the illegal rendition and torture of thousands, and indeed the murders of an unknown number of people.
Declan Ganley also tried to profit from the war in Iraq see Tigris staffing http://www.scribd.com/doc/50901195/Iraq-Telecoms-Liscence-Corruption-2004

Given that Ganley took people involved in mass murder and rendition onto his company's board and indeed sought to profit form a war that has led to hundreds of thousands of illegal deaths, why is he labeling Che a mass murderer?
He has many who could be considered the ring masters of mass murderer in his circle.
Declan Ganley, Che Guevara and Liam Mellows were freedom fighters. Liam Mellows was an actual Irish man not a English born Watford shoneen.
It must also be remembered that Ganley recruited anti Semites and neo Nazis to contest the 2009 European election for his Libertas party. He should be run out of public life. Declan Ganley is more closely associated with mass murder than Che.
Viva Che Viva Liam
