During the tyranny of Gerardo Machado, González Ordaz stood out in the fight against the regime. He soon became a representative of communist principles in workers' unions in the Ariguanabo.
His friendship with the priest Arrechea, parish priest of the Church, was significant. Due to this friendship, the soldiers searched the Priest's temple, with the risk of finding weapons and a mimeograph, where the Party printed all the local propaganda that Armando had hidden in the temple.

The Party called Armando to move to the capital, where he carried out a great activity. Subsequently, due to his courage, he was transferred to Güines in order to organize the sugar workers in the region. During this work he was surprised and arrested. In the barracks of the Rural Guard, he is brutally beaten and tortured.

The two revolutionaries responded with their guns, being seriously injured. Thus, Armando González Ordaz, a true communist, entered the History of Cuba and that of the Ariguanabo.
