Dec 10, 2011

2011 was a year of global tumult, marked by widespread social and political uprisings, economic crises, and a great deal more. We witnessed the fall of multiple dictators, welcomed a new country (South Sudan), saw our planet's population grow to 7 billion, and watched in horror as Japan was struck by a devastating earthquake, a tsunami, and a nuclear disaster. From the Arab Spring to Los Indignados to Occupy Wall Street, citizens around the world took to the streets in massive numbers, protesting against governments and financial institutions, risking arrest, injury, and in some cases their lives.  Pictures
