Yesterday, we received a communique from the Revolutionary Communist Party of Bolivia (PCR) that Comrade Walter Zuleta died of COVID-19 February 18th.
Comrade Walter was a life-long communist whose revolutionary activity spanned decades. All his life Walter fought for the revolution and socialism. Comrade Walter gave his all for the liberation of the working and oppressed peoples of Bolivia, of Latin America, and of the entire world. Comrade Walter is survived by his partner Inés, his children Soledad, Christian, Wara, Camilo and Valentina, and his grandchildren.
We had come to know Comrade through his work in the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations (ICMLPO) and his and participation in the annual Seminar on the Problems of the Revolution in Latin America. We are deeply shocked and profoundly saddened at his sudden passing.
The American Party of Labor, it’s leadership and cadre, offer our most heartfelt condolences to Comrade Walter’s family, to his comrades of the PCR, and to the workers and toilers of Bolivia.
Sleep well, Chicho. You have earned your rest. Your cause is immortal. As are you.
Camarada Walter Zuleta – ¡Presente!
