" On Monday, on the web site of the Head office of the civil aviation ( DGAC),French people will have the list of the companies forbidden in France, the list of the authorized companies " declared the Minister. Never too late. To meditate: the bodies of the victims of Flash Airlines (accident of January 3rd, 2004) are always in Egypt. In August, 26th, 2005 Here is the example of the consequences of the crash of Flash Airlines (Egypt. 03.01.2004). – bodies are always in Egypt – families are not indemnified – The lawsuit gets stuck – The American justice (the association of families had attacked BOEING) doesn't want of the file ! In front of the unacceptable, revolt is healthy. In August, 25th, 2005 It is with consternation that I heard comments resigned about the crash of August 16, 2005 of West Caribbean flight 708. " It is fate ". Naturally, after the severe pain of the loss, it's normal to feel exceeded, crushed, numbed. We still don't want to believe. They were so cheerful, so alive ? But they will not return and the feeling which stays doesn't have to be resignation – Why? Because it is necessary to ask for justice to be made. Your parents would have been with you, today , to tell you their journey in Panama. You would have squeeze them in your arms. You can not. You lost them. And it's unacceptable. The responsibles have to pay. Your mother, your father, your uncle, your aunt or your dead child have a value for you. The value of the affection, of the last moments, the value of love. This value which you grant to them is inestimable. Even though money will not make them come back to life. It is not a question of second chance, it is not about consolation. It is all about justice. There are responsibles. There were heavy carelessness. West Caribbean had – before the crash of august 16th – be responsible for the death of 8 persons in March. The Colombian government is responsible for its carelessness to respect the legislation of international civil aviation. The plane MD 82 had already had a lot of incidents in flight. But nobody did forbid this airline to fly, even though in dreadful conditions. Be carefull not to be manipulate. Take a good lawyer and fight. The more you will charge to the responsibles, the more you will contribute to the respect of the value of your dead parents. It is not a question of "taking advantage". If this money bothers you, you can always give it to some respectable organisation ? The main thing is that this money is necessary to recognize damage. The West Caribbean has to pay and all the responsibles too. Just to respect Human life. The value of life, which some airlines do not seem to respect, when they carry people as cattle. It's healthy not to accept what is unacceptable. It's healthy not to accept injustice. The process of mourning, it is to realize the death of your relative. It is not to tolerate that this person is murdered. In the conditions in which your relatives died, it is murder. The process of mourning does not exclude to ask for justice. In memory, by respect for them, it is necessary to react. Your children, your relatives, your close relations, your friends died while they would have been able to be with you. Keep it in mind. The unacceptable. The responsibles must be worried. What would be abnormal, it is that airline can kill with impunity. All events pull a consequence. But the nature of the consequence will depend on your action or on your inactivity. It depends also on us, tv, " public opinion ", which have much more weight than you imagine. This consequence depends as well on the support of each of us, individually or collectively will be able to bring you. We are with you, and we'll follow you, not only today but throughout the years, if lawsuit lasts.
