“Suele ser tan ingenuo el incrédulo absoluto como el que todo lo cree; pertenecen en el fondo a una misma categoría psicológica.”
Rodolfo Walsh, Operación Masacre

“Reproduzca esta información, hágala circular por los medios a su alcance: a mano, a máquina, a mimeógrafo, oralmente. Mande copias a sus amigos: nueve de cada diez las estarán esperando. Millones quieren ser informados. El terror se basa en la incomunicación. Rompa el aislamiento. Vuelva a sentir la satisfacción moral de un acto de libertad. Derrote el terror. Haga circular esta información.”
Rodolfo Walsh

“El campo intelectual es por definición la conciencia. Un intelectual que no comprenda lo que pasa en su tiempo y en su país es una contradicción andante.”
Rodolfo Walsh
