    SOCIALISM was still possible in Latin America, the daughter of Cuba's revolutionary hero Che Guevara has said.

    Aleida Guevara March, daughter of Argentine-born Ernesto "Che" Guevara, said leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez inspired hope. In an interview 38 years after the death of her father, she said it was still possible to remove the right-wing from the region, specifically in Bolivia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru.

    "All that is needed is a good scalpel," Guevara March, 44, said. Like her father, she studied medicine.

    Her father joined the Cuban revolution, led by Cuba's president, Fidel Castro, helping to topple the Havana government in 1959. Guevara died trying to export socialist revolution to Bolivia.

    His daughter said the US "has unleashed so much propaganda against Cuba and against socialism that many people are afraid of it".

    Mr Chavez, then, meant "hope, because Latin America is very afraid of socialism".

    "Hugo Chavez today could be an alternative, a possibility, but if one looks at the evolution of his Bolivarian Revolution, one sees that circumstances have forced him to be more and more radical because of US pressure," she said.

    Mr Chavez' political program was based on the writings of South America's "Liberator" from Spain, Simon Bolivar, who urged Latin American unity
