Sample text

En Ceilán se estableció el patrullaje nocturno, la población en arranques de pelea y ¿qué hacemos sin armas, si la dirección liberal nos consiguiera armas? Era el temor generalizado, cada quien cargando con su angustia, cada quien comiendo de su plato silencio y miedo. Que en la oficina del liberalismo solamente hay una encargada de la oficina, medio muda que no da razón de nada. ” Ceilán, para ellos estaba a soplo de mano, a una hora y media de distancia. Despreocupados, lo sabían metidos en sus carpas.

Los presentimientos se acumularon y como expresión de candidez, todos absolutamente en el pueblo siguieron pensando en que no pasaría nada, aunque los indicios eran más que claros. La incredulidad atrapada en sentimientos de buena fe. “Un día entraron unos cuatrocientos hombres a La Primavera, a puro fuego haciendo sonar sus ametralladoras y sus fusilería y carabinas, entraron empujando su humanidad bien cargada y bien armada. En últimas nos fuimos huyendo por los potreros, por las fincas, por las sementeras.

Siendo de anotar que ensillaron las bestias y se dedicaron a perseguir en ellas a los ciudadanos liberales que dejaban sus hogares para internarse en los montes, huyendo de la cruel persecución. Luego cogieron presos a todos los liberales que pudieron, de los que no tuvieron tiempo de huir y procedieron a quitarles la cédula de ciudadanía. También les hicieron firmar hojas de papel en que afirmaban que desde ese momento dejaban de ser liberales para seguir profesando las ideas del partido conservador en las próximas elecciones presidenciales”.
