Thor Halvorssen Comes From A Long Line Of Troublemakers… The Good Kind December 7, 2016

According to Crunchbase, Thor Halvorssen is the founder of the Human Rights Foundation. The man is famous for targeting unilateral dictators around the world with his activism. The 39-year-old is quickly emerging as the world’s leading advocate for human rights. He knows how to make human rights attractive to a large audience through the use of social media and pop culture.

You may know him from his open letter to Nikki Minaj. The open letter attempted to dissuade the popstar from performing a private concert for the dictator of Angola. As it turns out, the dictator of Angola is guilty of human rights abuses and of stealing from his own country.

The human rights activist hasn’t always been on the world stage. He was born in Venezuela but speaks perfect accent-less English. His father was a diplomat from Norway helping the Venezuelan government investigate and prosecute the Medellin cartel. His father was arrested during the investigation while Thor was a freshman at the University of Pennsylvania.

His father was held captive for 74 days in a Caracas prison. He was beaten and tortured during his captivity under the socialist dictator of Venezuela. It was a traumatic time for Thor Halvorssen, but he didn’t despair. Rather, he sprung into action in order to free his father with the help of international human rights organizations, such as Amnesty International. With their help, Thor was able to successfully free his father.

Thor’s mother, a British national from Venezuela, was also a political troublemaker. Her passion about Venezuela and politics drove her to a protest in New York City. The protest concerned the 2004 Venezuelan recall referendum. Venezuelan security forces opened fire on the crowd. Thor’s mother was among the 12 wounded by the barrage of bullets. One woman was left dead.

Thor Halvorssen wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal about the protest and his own mother. Making the shooting public was essential in the capture of the Venezuelan security forces responsible for the shooting. Unfortunately, the forces were only sentenced to three years in prison.

Thor’s own parents were political disruptors and suffered for what they believed in. It is clear that Thor is prepared to do the same. And this should come as scary news to any unilateral dictator around the world. You can knock the Halvorssen family down, but you can’t knock them out. It shows in the human rights activist’s tenacious actions.
