This image released by Time Magazine shows the Person of the Year issue featuring "The Protester." The magazine on Wednesday cited dissent across the Middle East that has spread to Europe and the United States, and says these protesters are reshaping global politics.

“The Protester” has been named Time’s “Person of the Year” for 2011.

The selection was announced Wednesday on NBC’s The Today Show.

The magazine cited dissent across the Middle East that has spread to Europe and the United States and said these protesters are reshaping global politics.

Last year, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg got the honour, which goes to the person the magazine believes most influenced events of the past year.

Other previous winners have included heads of state and rock stars.
