20th of February - World Day of Social Justice

According to the United Nations, social justice refers to equality for all and the capacity for each human being to have benefit of social and economic progress without discrimination.

Promoting social justice is not only a question of creating more jobs and raising incomes. It is also a question of rights, dignity, freedom of expression for workers, as well as economic, social and political independence.
