The social justice is a fundamental principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence, within and between nations.

In 2007 the United Nations Organization (UNO) proclaimed on February 20 of each year as the World Day of Social Justice.

In this regard, the UN refers to the International Labor Organization (ILO), a specialized agency that integrates the United Nations system, and especially the document Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization.

This year, the activities to be carried out at the time of the event should be aimed at "eradicating poverty and promoting full employment and decent work, gender equality and access to social welfare and social justice for all."

Other issues that really matter in this regard include social equality, equal opportunities, the welfare state, the issue of poverty, income distribution, labor and trade union rights.

We defend the principles of social justice when we promote gender equality or the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants.

We promote social justice when we remove barriers faced by people on the basis of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.

Today, when the world celebrates this day, Cuba shows great achievements in social justice, access to education, health services, culture and sport, are some of the features that show it.

The concept was masterfully defined by the Italian Jesuit priest Luigi Taparelli, when he ruled that social justice must in fact equate all men with respect to the rights of humanity.
