Mario Monje Molina was the Secretary-General of the PCB, the Communist Party of Bolivia (Partido Comunista Boliviano).[1] When the party split into a pro-Soviet and a pro-Beijing wing, he became the leader of the pro-Soviet wing. He agreed to help Ernesto 'Che' Guevara incite a revolution in Bolivia in 1966, yet decided otherwise later. Aleida March (Che's widow) blames Monje for the death of her husband.[2]

He was portrayed by actor Lou Diamond Phillips in Che: Part Two.
