The Protester is Person of the Year for 2011, according to TIME. I agree with the choice. My other consideration is The Disaster Survivor but The Protestor had so much going in terms of bringing significant change in power and institutional regimes that over the years subjugated and neglected the people. Both – Disaster Survivor and Protester – were victims but in different ways. The latter is the victim that like the Phoenix found new force and purpose in its rising. Ablaze with white hot purpose The Protester cannot be simply dismissed. If 2011 ends with The Protester does it mean 2012 will see the fruition of his/ her labor? I do hope so.
