TIME Person of the Year: The Protester
TIME has declared "The Protester" its 'Person of the Year' for 2011:
"No one could have known that when a Tunisian fruit vendor set himself on fire in a public square, it would incite protests that would topple dictators and start a global wave of dissent. In 2011, protesters didn’t just voice their complaints; they changed the world."
