We give an L2-well posedness result concerning an initial boundary value problem for the system of linear elasticity either in the half-plane or in a two dimensional bounded domain. Under the necessary uniform Kreiss Lopatinskii condition we construct here a dissipative Kreiss symmetrizer of our problem; actually, due to the characteristic boundary and the lack of a technical assumption given by T. Ohkubo, the main difficulty consists of building the dissipative symmetrizer near some special "boundary points".
