“Defending fundamental human rights demands courage and determination,” Francis declares in the video, speaking in his native Spanish. “I’m referring to actively combatting poverty, inequality, the lack of work, land, and housing, and the denial of social and labor rights.”
“Often, in practice, fundamental human rights are not equal for all,” he states. “There are first-, second-, and third-class people, and those who are disposable. No. They must be equal for all.”
“In some places, defending people’s dignity can mean going to prison, even without a trial,” he adds. “Or it might mean slander.”
“Every human being has the right to develop fully, and this fundamental right cannot be denied by any country,” he concludes.

For quite a while, Francis has been currying favor with Beijing with an end goal to build up conciliatory relations with the authoritatively nonbeliever country and appears to be reluctant to effectively vexed Chinese administration.
On Easter, the pope caused to notice key territories all throughout the planet enduring struggles and foul play, referencing individuals of Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, the Sahel, Nigeria, Tigray and the Cabo Delgado district, eastern Ukraine and Nagorno-Karabakh, just as Jerusalem and the contention among Israelis and Palestinians and the favorable to vote based system dissidents in Myanmar.
As he has done on past events, Francis selected to stay quiet in regards to China and its inhumane imprisonments where over 1,000,000 Uighurs are as of now confined, a significant number of whom are tormented, assaulted, and coercively cleaned.
