The expert was speaking to Angop, ahead of celebration of World Social Justice Day, on the 20th, having highlighted the importance of the event in the life of people.

The initiative represents a mechanism created by the United Nations to awaken governments on combat and eradication of poverty, gender inequalities, prejudice based on race, colour, religion or culture, he said.

Martins said that analysing the Social Justice implies to realise that differences and social inequalities continue to increase in the country, coupled with the wealth concentration.

He emphasised, however, that the social justice issue necessarily entails equitable distribution of wealth and greater economic and social opportunities.

These factors contribute to longer life expectancy.
