Born Into Desperation
Thor Halvorssen has a unique perspective informed by his birth in Venezuela. He naturally understands what it means to live under a government that oppresses you and he acts accordingly. So many people are unable to understand exactly why we need to fight against dictatorships across the world and the consequences if we don’t. With the imprisonments of his family members and other issues at hand, he knows the dangers better than anyone else.
Fighting The Good Fight
The activism of Thor Halvorssen is tackling issues that many people simply do not understand or care to know about. Despite the lack of concern he wants to make sure people understand what’s happening in countries where people don’t have basic rights such as free speech or the right to protest. In these countries we can clearly see the abuse of power and other ways that people are deprived of important needs they have. His work isn’t always safe and sometimes he finds himself in danger of being arrested or facing other serious issues.
