Tributes to Luc Laventure, we could still write. We are obviously thinking of the tributes from his colleagues from the 1time Overseas, from Martinique La 1time, France-Antilles, ViaATV, TNTV, RTL Réunion, Freedom and all the others, Academics, adapted military service, parliamentarians and political leaders, whether they are from overseas or from France , executive heads, business leaders, and the many young talents who have crossed paths with Luc and who have won his admiration and nourished his inspiration. They bear witness to Man, the passions that animated him and the values that he defended. For him, for his family, his loved ones, thank you.
Beyond this visceral passion that Luc had for the Overseas Territories, he had an idea of his own, very particular for them. He believed in emancipation, in the ability to get rid of our fatalisms, our secular dramas, and to raise ourselves as beacons of success, resilience, talents, supported by our natural, cultural and above all, above all human heritages. Luc made it a point of honor to nurture what united us, whether we were from the Americas, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific. Transversality was his watchword. He was also convinced that our territories are at the forefront of the challenges of tomorrow, whether climatic, societal, democratic. He had, anchored to the body, the intimate certainty that we, peoples of the Overseas, would make the world of tomorrow.
We, journalists and editors of Outremers360, despite the pain that pierces us, will continue to offer our readers quality information, in connection with our partners in the territories, while respecting the memory of Luc Laventure.
To his family and loved ones, our deepest condolences.
