The Protester is Time Magazine's 2011 Person of the Year. It always feels like a bit of a cop-out when Time doesn't choose a particular person and goes with a concept or a generalization. But in this case, Time might have a point. The Protester, whomever we choose to believe him or her to be, had a big year. There were protests in Africa and the Middle East as well as plenty of protests across the United States as "Occupy" became as much a noun as a verb.
