Championing the Rights of Others; Thor Havlorssen
There is a statement that says that when you keep quiet as the other minorities and people who are disadvantaged are being oppressed, soon the oppressor will come for you, and you will have no one to speak on your behalf. Well, Thor Havlorssen is not the man to keep quiet and watch as things go wrong with humanity. He has been an activist for as long as he can remember, and his achievements, especially judging from his age, speak volumes about his commitment to the cause of making the world a better place for all humans.
Perhaps it is in his genes to be the advocate that he has been for his rights. Perhaps it is the experiences that he went through as a child that molded him into the vocal person that he is. well, judging from the fact that when he was a freshman in college, his father had been arrested, detained and was being tortured by corrupt government regimes, and he was the one leading the match to free him, we can say that it is a mixture of both. His mother also got shot while participating in a peaceful demonstration and both his parents came from generations of strong community leaders.
Thor is of Venezuelan and Norwegian descent. He has already established an organization that matches for the rights of the oppressed. The Human Rights Movement, which has its headquarters in New York, has been holding several events every year to create awareness about their goals and mission. The event has been dubbed as the Davos Conference of human rights and related issues.
Thor has also been involved in a number of cases himself. For instance, there was a time he and his crew f camera and newsmen narrowly escaped from a Vietnamese hostage situation. He however states that being hurt does not deter him or break his spirit. He reiterates that he does not care where a person comes from or what they do and that as long as a person cares deeply for the rights of others, they are speaking the same language and they can work together for the greater good.
