ILO launches campaign

‘Voices on Social Justice’ :

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has launched a new global campaign Voices on Social Justice, to provide a global platform for perspectives on social justice today and how it might be achieved particularly through the world of work.

The campaign is part of global events marking the second World Day for Social Justice on February 20, and will bring together in one place diverse voices and views from around the world on the meaning of social justice, especially in times of global economic crisis.

“The current economic and jobs crisis has made our continuing struggle for social justice harder and even more urgent,” said ILO Director-General Juan Somavia. “It is vital that we raise our voices to promote a fairer society. This forum provides an opportunity to do exactly that,” he said.

On February 19 an initial series of video interviews on social justice will be available featuring Somavia, International Trade Union Confederation, (ITUC), General Secretary Guy Ryder, International Organization of Employers (IOE), Secretary General Antonio Pe¤alosa, Permanent Representative of Brazil to the United Nations Office and other International Organizations in Geneva, Ambassador Maria Nazareth Farani Azevedo, World Trade Organization, Director-General Pascal Lamy and Professor Alain Supiot.

“One of the best ways to get to social justice is decent work: the dignity of work, the dignity of the human being, the stability of the family, peace in the community - that is what decent work is about” Somavia said.
