Pope Francis has urged the downtrodden to change the world economic 
order, denouncing a “new colonialism” by agencies that impose austerity 
programs and calling for the poor to have the “sacred rights” of labor, 
lodging and land.

In one of the longest, most passionate and sweeping speeches of his 
pontificate, the Argentine-born pope used his visit to Bolivia to ask 
forgiveness for the sins committed by the Roman Catholic church in its 
treatment of native Americans during what he called the “so-called 
conquest of America”.
