In this sentence, it's not the actual motion of standing up, but the figurative meaning, as in: "The principal accused us of breaking the rules at school, but the teacher stood up for us." A mi országunk kiáll az emberi jogok mellett - "Our country stands up for human rights." In English, you stand up for something; in Hungarian, you stand out beside something (or someone).
