"Language is a unique human trait and a means to communicate, share knowledge, memory and history. Human diversity and the beauty of the world’s linguistic tapestry must be protected and promoted" – UN expert @fernanddev on #MotherLanguageDay. Read: http://ow.ly/l3M230nLQTG
Languages are of vital importance to linguistic minorities seeking to maintain their identity, sometimes in the face of discrimination. Let's protect humanity's linguistic diversity - the hallmark of an inclusive society & key to counter intolerance/racism. #MotherLanguageDay
What’s key to peace & security worldwide? 🗝️#SocialJustice Societies which exclude ppl from essential social services give rise to grievances & conflict. States must protect everyone’s fundamental economic, social & cultural rights in order to develop to their full potential.
Short-sighted #austerity measures are eroding social protection systems. Short-term cost-saving measures ignore human rights obligations & state commitments to realize sustainable development goals. #SocialJusticeDay
Only 27% of persons with severe #disabilities worldwide receive a disability benefit. States should adopt social protection schemes that promote the autonomy and full participation in society of persons with disabilities. #SocialJusticeDay

We must make the human right to social protection a reality everywhere. “Billions of people long to enjoy their basic rights to social security, food, health, education, equality. Let’s meet these basic needs, and then let’s exceed them.” – @mbachelet #SocialJusticeDay
🍲 Food 🏥 Health 📚 Education 🏠 Housing #SocialJusticeDay: We need universal social protection systems in line with universal human rights. Budgets should be ring-fenced to ensure that essential goods & services are universally accessible, sustaining human dignity.
