Oslo Freedom Forum brings together the global human rights movement (Wired UK)


I'm fortunate to get to attend a good number of first-rate conferences -- but I've never spent time among such an inspiring community as I did last week for three days in Oslo.
The Oslo Freedom Forum, set up three years ago by the Venezuelan-born activist Thor Halvorssen, is a gathering of 250 human-rights campaigners, supporters, commentators and policymakers where speakers include Nobel Peace Prize-winners and former child slaves. Over intensely moving sessions at Oslo's Christiania Theatre and the nearby Grand Hotel, and afterwards over dinner, drinks and late-night conversation, stories are shared, campaigns sharpened and new alliances forged. If the global human-rights movement were to create its own unified representative body, it would look something like this.

1: If you plan to escape a West Papuan prison, as Benny Wenda successfully did, then wait until your jailers are distracted and then squeeze yourself into a narrow ventilation system. You'll be sweating so profusely in fear of your life that the sweat will help you slide through the tubing.
