What if social justice was a pill that was patented and could save the lives of millions of people, but it never reached those people because they are poor?
What if social justice was a song with a copyright, but the people who created the song couldn't sing it without paying someone else?
What if social justice was a trademark, but it was used on products to pollute urban communities and oppress the poor?

This is the work of IIPSJ.
