The Pope spoke also about the term "solidarity," a word that is not always well accepted:
Solidarity means thinking and acting in terms of community, of prioritizing the life of all over and above the appropriation of goods by the few. It also means fighting the structural causes of poverty, inequality, unemployment, lack of land and housing, and the denial of social and labor rights.
The Pope concluded by highlighting the importance of walking together, remarking that:
..popular movements express the urgent need to revitalize our democracies, that are so often hijacked by many factors. It is impossible to imagine a future for society without the active participation of the majority.
