Evoking my first steps in Popular Power (+ Audio)

Florida, Oct 23.- I still remember that morning; and I say the morning and not the day because my childlike protagonism in the day of which I will speak concludes with the Sun in its midst walking through the sky of that time, clear as the destinies of the Homeland.

I remember that my rural school, the one with wooden walls and floors and a guano roof, with its extensive garden and the bust of the Apostle at the entrance itself, seemed different to us on that date. The fence that surrounded it dawned covered with little Cuban flags and numerous stalks of palm guano and coconut trees, fresh and green as hope itself, intertwined from post to post, forming welcome arches for those summoned to the occasion.

With these images begins the chronicle with which the journalist Pedro Pablo Sáez Herrera recalls his participation in the custody of the polls 45 years ago, when the first elections of the Delegates of People’s Power were held.
