“Growing inequality undermines the international community’s progress in lifting millions out of poverty and building a more just world. The fault lines are visible in falling wages for women and young people, and limited access to education, health services and decent jobs. We must strengthen and build institutions and develop policies that promote inclusive development.
As we seek to build the world we want, let us intensify our efforts to achieve a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable development path built on dialogue, transparency and social justice.”
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

All across the globe people are fighting for freedom from tyranny, the creation of just policies ensuring basic human rights and social welfare, respectful adherence to civil liberties, and fairness and equality for all.
Unfortunately not all countries and governments believe in transparency, accountability and democracy. As globalization and technology rapidly continue to contract the world and the global economy, it is all to often up to the people to make a stand, voice their concerns and demand that leaders allow access to justice, prosperity, peace and security.
We should all have an active passion for social justice. Be part of the resistance, rather than just a passive observer.
