Air traffic controllers speak out

March 30, 2007 | By More

Just as well I wrote that final sentence on my previous post. Today, a group of Brazilian air traffic controllers have made public a manifest – by necessity, anonymous, as their military status doesn’t allow them to participate in industrial disputes – announcing a hunger strike and demanding immediate action from the goverment to put an end to the crisis. The solution unavoidably involves a transfer to civilian control of air traffic control operations in Brazil (a movement Lula is reluctanct to make, unlike his Argentinian counterpart). The manifest includes two worrying sentences, in capital letters:

“WE DO NOT TRUST OUR EQUIPMENTS. WE DO NOT TRUST OUR SUPERIORS”
