WORLD SOCIAL JUSTICE DAY

In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed February 20 as World Social Justice Day. They based this decision on the assertion that global justice is a fundamental principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence, and that it constitutes the core of their own mission to promote development and human dignity.



We head the celebration of this day with this contextualization that we have already used before, and we continue with a sufficiently understandable synthesis of what this value represents in two words.

Social Justice is a value that promotes equal respect for the rights and obligations of each human being in their society. Social Justice focuses on the fair and equitable distribution of the basic goods and services necessary for the development and belonging of a person to society, such as socio-emotional well-being, education, health and human rights.



And we find among many words the word belonging. At this point we can ask ourselves as many questions as come to mind, and probably some will not have an answer that is kind to us. Do I belong to the society I want, to which I choose, to which I desire? Do I have the right to belong to a wanted society? Am I part of a welcoming society? Am I recognised as belonging to a society? Many of us who live in the wealthy north have not had much need to ask ourselves questions of this kind, perhaps because we have assumed the position that we have (as sponsored by a fairy) for being born in a certain place , perhaps because we have a look trapped in our closest environment, perhaps because we think that there is only one way of life that fits what we have always done and is doing us well enough, perhaps because the belly has never asked us to soothe an extended and prolonged pain... namely. And if my membership is assumed and recognized, or I don't even consider it because it is not a discomfort for me, can I say that everyone belongs somewhere? To any community? To any group? To all the people, laws, norms, customs, objects, goods, services and rights that make up what we call society? If there are people who cannot live this belonging that would place them on a plane of equity and justice with their peers, often denied by the same society that promulgates reception and solidarity, then we have a lot of work to do both personally and collectively to lead us on this path that leads to Social Justice.

From the Kassumay Foundation we continue to share the values that underpin and promote this concept that today we have focused only on one word, but which is of extraordinary magnitude and that we believe is essential to bring about some kind of change in this world that we sense hurt by ignorance, abuses of power, unequal and abusive exploitation of resources, for the lack of respect for the rights of people and for the lack of respect for the land that welcomes us. Social Justice is the first step towards achieving Global Justice.
