In recent news, Thor Halvorssen and his foundation known as the Human Rights Foundation, have spoken out against human rights violations caused by pop-star Nicki Minaj. This particular issue originated when Nicki Minaj agreed to perform at a concert in Angola. The issue that is being protested by several human rights organizations is the fact that the concert is being funded by Unitel which is a communications company that is linked to the oppressive regime in Angola.
This violation against human rights has not only been violated by Nicki Minaj, but has also been violated by international pop-star, Mariah Carey. Ms. Carey has performed for several oppressive regimes in Africa in exchange for a few million dollars. Human Rights Organizations have not only protested against the fact that she received a heavy sum for the performance, but have also protested the fact that she has committed this crime more than once.

Though the foundation is only 10 years old, Mr. Halvorssen has several decades of experience in fighting for universal human rights.

His enthusiasm and his passion for what he is fighting for has been noticed worldwide and has successfully changed thousands of opinions that were once against human rights.
