Given human nature, there is a need for human rights activists. Fortunately, there are quite a few human rights activists that are fighting for the rights of other human beings in different countries. Activists are doing everything they can to not only speak on the issues of human rights, but to also participate in the fight in order to make sure that liberty and justice is experienced by people in some of the more tyrannically ruled countries. While there are activists that have only a theoretical knowledge, there are some that have experienced some of the injustices of the world and are looking to get rid of it because of their experiences.
Among the human rights activists that have experienced injustices is Thor Halvorssen. He is one of the people that have not only experienced injustice, but has also come from parents that have experienced injustice partially because of what they know and stand for.

Therefore, he is very passionate about bringing forth justice in an unjust world. Click here to watch video.
