Voices are rising in the fight against inequalities
The fight against extreme inequalities is a major battle around the globe. Although world leaders have committed to reducing inequalities both within and among countries, unjust global economic systems – combined with the impacts of crises like the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change and conflict – are driving the world towards greater imbalance.
People on the frontline of these battles against inequalities are feeling the consequences most deeply. Now they are raising their voices against these injustices. It’s time to listen to their concerns and tackle some of the root causes of inequalities – from global tax systems to deep-rooted localised systems of discrimination.
A more just and balanced world is possible. The time to stand up against these injustices is now.
