    For a brighter future we must have social justice

    International Workers’ Day may trace its origin to the late nineteenth century but the values and ideals that underpin it are as relevant in 2013 as they have ever been. While the day originated to mark the labour traditions of Western Europe and North America, the sense of injustice and opportunity that inspired it are just as present in Southeast Asia today. These issues are at the very core of the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) mandate and are central to its work in this region.
