If natural rights are universal then any attack on them must be defended everywhere they occur.
I know that the implications of this are perpetual liberation struggles but that doesn’t mean the logic is wrong. Murray Rothbard said:
“Rights may be universal, but their enforcement must be local”
But this hinges on the definition of local which is arbitrary is it not? If so then one can expand the scope of local to whatever lengths one wishes so as to become global.
