Does this phrase "No Justice, No Peace" sound revolutionary to you? Do you take it as a ‘threat’? If you do you are totally right, as consequently you are, perhaps unknowingly, acknowledging the pressure of the enormous global injustices prevailing in today’s world. However, it may not be so much a threat as much as it is a cry of the heart. It is not simply a call to protest, but also a naming of the powers and what those powers have done and are still doing.
As Jimmy Cliff sang:
How is there going to be peace?
Furthermore, this slogan can be equally applied to the rising voice as well as to the listener, to whom it could well be a warning.
When there is no justice, oh no, oh
Someone is taking my share
And they just don't give a damn, no they don't care
Notwithstanding, the greatest injustice, presently prevailing in most European countries and strongly promoted by the European Union, is the privatisation of most public and government services. When services are privatised, injustice flows freely. Private corporations frame services in business terms, placing economic outcomes over social objectives, preventing prioritisation of the poor and vulnerable.
