Example text

Era un caballero en ese sentido, porque tenía experiencia, había observado y analizado los acontecimientos. No era que inven­ tara de pronto ese modo de proceder, sino que fue resultado de la reflexión acerca de lo vivido. Y, además, mucho de aque­ llo lo aprendí gradualmente. ¿Quién me enseñó cuando llegué a la Universidad? El tipo de política, cómo hacer, cómo ganar el apoyo de la gente, la voluntad de la gente; es una mezcla de factores políticos, psicológicos. A la gente le gusta que cuen­ ten con ella, a la gente le agrada que le pidan apoyo.

Mi carro estaba sin pagar todavía, la casa siempre endeu­ dada; le debía al dueño del inmueble, al de la carnicería, al de la bodega, al de la gasolinera, pero todo el mundo confiaba más o menos en que tendría posibilidad de pagar, y al mismo tiempo me veían luchando y con problemas y dificultades. También mis gastos aumentaron con motivo de la hora de radio que debía pagar mensualmente. No duró mucho tiempo, pero eran como 200 pesos mensuales. Cuando empecé había que pagar aquellos 15 minutos.

Estaban todos los periódicos, todas las estaciones de radio. Cubrían la noticia las 24 horas. ¿Qué ocurrió cuando las estaciones estaban en el aire todo aquel tiempo? Las grandes cadenas de radio buscaban gente para que hablaran, entonces, no había quién lo hiciera, y creo que ha­ blé 12 o 15 veces por las cadenas nacionales. Me di cuenta de la im­ portancia que tenían CMQ, CMKC y las demás estaciones de radio. No existían las de televisión. Pronuncié discursos diferentes, breves; arengas contra el go­ bierno, culpándolo de la muerte de Chibás, de la corrupción.
