Thor Halvorssen, Modern Day “Liberator”

Thor Halvorssen is a highly involved human rights activist and President of Human Rights Foundation (HRF). HRF is a non-profit organization founded by Mr Thor for the purpose of literally fighting tyranny and injustice throughout the globe.

Thor’s grandfather, serving as the Norwegian Consul in Venezuela, is responsible for saving Norway’s merchant fleet from Nazis during World War II. His mother descends from Latin American freedom fighters and heroes including Simon Bolivar and Cristóbal Mendoza.

Thor’s fight against oppression is a personal one. His father suffered in a Caracas prison after exposing government corruption, and his mother was shot while opposing Hugo Chavez at a demonstration. HRF Chairman Garry Kasparov received a beating from Russian police for protesting Pussy Riot’s guilty verdict, and Thor himself was subjected to violence for his candid interview with Thich Quang Do, a Buddhist political prisoner in Vietnam.

Even though Thor considers himself a classical liberal, according to WeeklyStandard.com, he refuses to discriminate based on politics. His mission, “to rid the world of tyranny,” is more important, and he will except contributions from anyone who chooses to champion human rights. He and his HRF associates are not concerned about problems in a democracy where human rights are recognized. Instead, they are freeing political prisoners and standing up to authoritarianism.

Thor’s Oslo Freedom Forum is a network of global conferences committed to the promotion of human rights across the globe, according to its website OsloFreedomForum.com. The forum began in 2009, and each year continues to bring together leading activists, journalists, authors, professors, politicians and governors committed to human rights. Click here to know more.
