“A government must know who it is with, without duplicity”

Ana Cristina López, who lost her husband in one of the trains that exploded on the morning of that tragic Thursday in 2004 on the Cercanías C-2 line that covered the route between Alcalá de Henares and Atocha, spoke on behalf of the victims of 11-M on the 20th anniversary of the Madrid attacks.

Visibly moved by the sad memories, López regretted that this past midnight the statute of limitations on the crimes had forever expired, vanishing her hope that an attack of that caliber would be considered a crime against humanity. “Paying tribute to each of the victims is an act of recognition of the sacrifice, but in addition, it should be accompanied by clear rejection behaviors from each citizen,” said López. “And if at that moment that citizen represents a State, being a government, he should know who he is with, without duplicity or lukewarmness and without excuses” (...) “Being by our side is not an easy task,” she added. “But it is the side of the brave, and being brave is hard,” she added.
