How George Soros has fought for human rights

Introduction

In many countries, the plans to shield the human rights have always failed since people thrive when the human rights are violated.

Thor Halvorssen’s Gritty Strain of Political Activism

Thor Halvorssen Mendoza might only be 39 years old but he’s done more in those three decades than most people do with fifty. For those who are not aware, Thor Halvorssen Mendoza is the founder of the well known activist organization and think tank, The HUman Rights Foundation as well as a vociferous opponent of tyranny the world over. Halvorssen is perhaps most well known for his various media appearances on such widely televised programs as FOX, CNN as well as RT tv where he’s typically called on as a expert in regards to the pitfalls of socialism and it’s relation to tyranny and dictatorial power structures.

Thor Halvorssen’s knowledge of socialism and it’s potentially destructive impact on society is so highly regarded because it’s not purely theoretical. Indeed, Mr. Halvorssen, as well as many members of his immediate family have had their lives turned upside down by the dire machinations of socialist regimes. For instance, Halvorssen’s great grandfather, Oystein, a former consulate to Venezuala during the stressful period of World War 2 often engaged Nazis in furious argumentation that frequently escalated into vicious fist fights.

Similarly, Halvorssen’s father, the well known businessman and CEO of CANTV, Thor Halvorssen Hellum, was arrested during a investigation into a corrupt Venezuelan banking company, and subsequently imprisoned for 74 days on charges of terrorism. Halvorssen himself was furiously beaten during a semi-covert trip to interview Thich Quang Do, the leader of the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam who had been placed under house arrest after having his church and organization banned by the authorities of Ho Chi Minh City. Halvorssen was able to sneak into Quang Do’s house and record a lengthy and informative interview but was discovered and arrested as he left the house. Huffington Post says that, whilst in prison, Halvorssen was beaten black and blue but was able to get the last laugh by sneaking the video card containing his interview with Thich Quang Do out via a confederate who hid the video card in his rectum.

Needless to say, Thor Halvorssen, unlike many other prominent activists, is more than just talk. He’s the kind of guy who is completely willing to role up his sleeves and get down in the dirt and the mud to make a positive difference.

Lovaganza Foundation – How it Aims to Achieve Universal Equality for Every Child by 2035?

Lovaganza from J-Scott on Vimeo.

The Lovaganza Foundation is on a mission to achieve a universal quality of life for every child by the year 2035. It has been only six years since its founders J.F. Gagnon and Genevieve Gagnon are traveling around the world to conduct research, create documentaries and speak to influential decision-makers regarding the future plans of the organization. These initial six years are a launching pad for the long-term goals of the Lovaganza Foundation, which is yet to initiate actions plans. However, the Foundation will soon launch worldwide campaign to convince other like-mind organizations to embrace the idea of achieving universal quality of life for every child in the world, between 0 and 14 years, by 2035.

Why Lovaganza is Different?

Perhaps, the Lovaganza Foundation realized that certain individuals and non-profits have made similar efforts in the past, but they could not achieve their goals. Therefore, the management and founders of Lovaganza have come out with a long-term step-by-step plan of achieving their goals. In addition, the mission is also different in the sense that it seeks to make countries responsible for taking actions. As such, its goal includes a plan to devise an official worldwide treaty on Facebook that can build on the mission of the Foundation.

Goals

Accordingly, the initial proposed goals for achieving the 2035 milestone include access to clean drinking water, sufficient food, permanent shelter, clothing, healthcare facilities and basic education. In addition, Lovaganza wants to take children out of the war equation, which also includes eradicating domestic violence including underage marriages and child labor.

Step-By-Step Plan

As the first step to achieving the goal, the Foundation has already started its research in various countries around the world. In the coming two years, results of the research will be exhibited through documentaries and related information materials. Before the second step is implemented in 2018, the Foundation will start establishing coordination centers, also known as Lovaganza Centers, to manage activities in individual regions.

By 2018, the Foundation will seek active partnership with at least 10 of the world’s leading organizations that will be willing to adapt and implement objectives of Lovaganza. In the third step, by 2020, the Foundation will began soliciting nations to work on its objectives immediately. By 2022, Lovaganza Centers in each of the eight major regions of the world will actively support and monitor each nation that commits to the task. By 2025, in the final step, the Foundation believes that it will have the support of almost every nation in the world enabling it to establish a worldwide treaty.

Nicki Defies Human Rights Activists Letter While Gilbert Roberts Continues Mission Offensive on WNBA Players

Nicki Minaj is all after the dollar and not even cries from the most influential human rights movement in the UK could make her cancel her Angolan Scheduled end-year performance. In an open letter to Nicki, the Human Rights Foundation movement founded by a celebrated filmmaker, Thor Halvorssen, warned Nicki against receiving any proceeds from the Unitel Communications sponsored concert.

In the series, her childhood role will be starred by Ariana Neal with model SelitaEbanks acting as Grace, Nicki’s Mom.
Nicki’s defiance of human rights foundation warnings and her upcoming series aren’t the only news causing a storm over the internet. Former WNBA player Gilbert Arenas is at it again, lashing out at the WNBA players with his Instagram sexist videos and comments. His commentaries and arrogance have attracted a lot of criticism and bashing from both the WNBA players and their spokesman.
