Person Of The Year of the Day: TIME picks "The Protester" as 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.
