    Is this sentence phrased properly?

    Is this sentence phrased properly? I wasn't sure about "repair".


    'Granting the citizens their just rights is a repair of a long-lasting historical evil'

    I would remove the word just and rephrase it a little, so it would look like this:

    Granting the citizens their rights will repair the long-lasting historical evil.

    Not a teacher.

    "Redress" in a better word than "repair."
