Political Leanings Mean Little To Activist Thor Halvorssen

The human rights activist Thor Halvorssen is a man who has decided achieving his aims within the activism community means he must go his own way in life. The Venezuelan born activist has recently been working from the New York base of his Human Rights Foundation, but still finds the time to make sure his feelings about dictators around the world are well known. Unlike his contemporaries Thor Halvorssen has been outspoken in his criticism of socialist governments in Cuba and his native Venezuela, regarding any government robbing its citizens of human rights as a target for his ire.

During the 2016 U.S. Presidential cycle Thor Halvorssen decided he had to speak up in a bid to bring the truth about the human rights records of the main candidates for the leading parties to the attention of a public who were largely unaware of them. Halvorssen not only declared his own inability to back either Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton because of their association with human rights abusing governments, but also drew attention to the humanitarian crisis growing over the summer of 2016 in his home country of Venezuela.

Halvorssen has looked for many different ways of making sure the public had information about public figures who have close ties to tyrannical figureheads. Trips taken by celebrities, including Hilary Swank, Lionel Messi, and Nicki Minaj taken to perform for or appear with dictators have been the subject of open letters Halvorssen published with leading news outlets.

The approach taken by Thor Halvorssen does not always follow that of his more traditional contemporaries in the human rights activism field, but the results he achieves show how successful he has been. The film producer does not believe governments should be allowed to get away with robbing individuals of their human rights because they have a socialist political leaning. Instead, Thor Halvorssen believes any dictator or tyrant should be brought to account for the crimes they have committed.
