From Rio to Ayotzinapa, from Hong Kong to Ferguson, the past year has
confirmed that protests and revolts will remain an integral aspect of
the global political landscape for quite some time to come. If 2014 was
anything to go by, the decade of the protester may yet be ahead of us.
And who knows what possibilities may still lie beyond?
In 2011, TIME Magazine selected “the protester” as its person of the year. Perhaps “person of the decade” would have been a more accurate depiction.
