TIME "Person of the Year" is from Occupy L.A.


Yesterday TIME revealed their "Person of the Year", as I posted here. What I didn't realize is that the person in the image is an Occupy Los Angeles protester who was "a little embarrassed to see her picture on the cover of Time."

The woman pictured is Sarah Mason, a Highland Park resident and an active member of Occupy L.A.

Street artist Shepard Fairey designed the cover. Fairey, who created the Barack Obama "Hope" posters before the 2008 presidential election, based his image on a photograph taken by Los Angeles photographer Ted Soqui, who says he took Mason's picture during a Nov. 17 financial district protest outside of the Bank of America tower.


Please read the rest of her story at the L.A. Times site.

"Contagion of protest..." Well said.  I hope it continues to be catching.

In my mind, there isn't even a question. The Occupy Movement has been America's biggest influence, and hope, of 2011. Vote for the 99% for Person of the Year here.

At the time of this writing, they're in the number one spot.
