social justice essay

Extracts from this document...


Social Justice Assignment Social justice is when something is unreasonable within society or around the world. There are many different unjust things that happen in our local towns, countries or even other countries all around the world. The government treat a lot of people unfairly today and I am going to discuss one of these groups which I believe are being treated wrongly is people who are living in government housing that is being vandalised or in threat or vandalism.

This problem also needs to be made more aware to the people of Australia, so they can know what could be going on in neighbouring areas and so they can do something about it. If we want this problem solved all of Australia should be informed as well as the government and we should be able to come to a decision that will benefit these people. ...read more.
