International Human Solidarity Day.

The General Assembly, on 22 December 2005, by resolution 60/209 identified solidarity as one of the fundamental and universal values that should underlie relations between peoples in the Twenty-first century, and in that regard decided to proclaim 20 December of each year International Human Solidarity Day.

Its objective is to eradicate poverty and promote human and social development, in particular among the poorest segments of their populations.

Socialists have been advocating solidarity for decades upon decades but also promoting the solution to poverty rather than parroting pious phrases.
