When it comes to human rights, the desire is for everyone to have the same amount of human rights. However, this is not likely to happen with all of the different types of rulers and different types of countries. For one thing, there are a lot of tyrants on power trips that are looking to run their country in the way they want. In many cases, there is no reasoning with them. Instead, there are other forms of actions that need to be taken in order to bring human rights to the people that are being denied those rights.
Fortunately, there are people that are willing to study the problem and find out what is needed in order to bring an effective solution to the citizens of tyrannical countries. Among these people is Thor Halvorssen, a prominent figure in the fight for human rights. He is in fact very passionate about fighting for the rights of others that he is willing to do more than talk. He is willing to get in on the action himself so that he can figure out a good solution to the issue. Thor passion for human rights keeps him up for long hours. He is not some average good boy. He is someone who has a heart for the suffering and a will to make things right. Therefore, he is willing to work long hours without tiring.
Thor does not coddle the enemies. For instance, when it comes to the supposed North Korea hack on the United States, Thor Halvorssen has made a statement saying to hack them back. Thor is not one person that will turn the other cheek out of being passive. He is more about observing the offender and finding a way to attack so that they can eradicate the offender and solve the problem once and for all.
Thor Halvorssen has gained esteem and admiration around the world due to his human rights activists for several years after he began his career at the time when he was a student, he perplexed the already established activists with his knowledge as well as his passion. Halvorssen began his career as an activist while he was still a student of the University of Pennsylvania when he began his work his aim was to assist his father to free the political detention that was against the law in his home country of Venezuela. He has also witnessed his members of his family being targeted as a result of the political decision and denied their human right and freedom on several different ways.
One of his life changing events is when he witnessed the 74 days when his father was a political prisoner and the shooting of his own mother while she was taking part in a political demonstration that was against the rule of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. Due to his efforts, he has gone to start his own activist’s group that is known as Human Right Foundation that id under the leadership of Gary Kasparov a Russian activist. The Human Right Foundation does not focus on working in the democratic countries but rather focus their efforts and their works in countries where the oppressive regime has denied it, citizen, their human rights and universal freedoms.
During his involvement in work of the activists, Thor Halvorssen has made a choice to be an ally with a group that is fighting the evils tyrants in the world, such group includes “Pussy Riot” of Russia. Though it is not common this to witness human right activists bring their health on the line when they are making all the efforts that they can to make their efforts known to the world, Halvorssen has ability to take great risk as witnessed in a trip that he took to Vietnam to interview a political prisoner of more than two decade. The reasons for a visit to Vietnam were discovered by the authorities and he and his camera operator were viciously attacked by the authorities in an efforts to take the tape of the interview. Thor commitments to human right activism can be seen through his work.
The human rights activist Thor Halvorssen is best known as the founder and public face of the Human Rights Foundation and Oslo Freedom Forum. The development of both the Human Rights Foundation and Oslo Freedom Forum reflect the ways in which Thor Halvorssen is willing to work in many different areas of technology and provide a successful basis for his work to shine a light on the different aspects of success achieved in fighting the problems of lost human rights. Alongside his work as an activist, Thor has also been developing a successful career as a film producer working in both the documentary and fiction areas with great success for the career he has already built.
Thor believes it is his duty to seek out new ways of bringing awareness to the issues of human rights being taken away from individuals, but has little time for focusing his work on the traditionally democratic regions of the world and instead seeks to assist those living under the harshest conditions within closed societies. In a bid to make sure those living within closed societies have their stories told to the wider public Thor Halvorssen established the Moving Picture Institute that works to fund movies explaining the issues of human rights to a major audience.
For Thor Halvorssen the movies and films he produces have the chance to inform as well as educate through the use of documentary style films that have already given the Venezuelan-born New York-based producer a good reputation within the movie industry. Halvorssen has produced many award-winning and commercially successful documentaries he believes provide information on major human rights abuses and the will of communities to stand up to their oppressors. The work of Halvorssen is not limited to documentary productions, but has recently moved into areas of fiction that he feels can also express the issues facing people around the world and raise awareness of human rights abuses taking place around the world.
