5 years ago11 views

The writer Stéphane Hessel, whose works inspired a global wave of social protests, has died in Paris. He was 95.

Three years ago, he wrote a pamphlet entitled Time for Outrage that many believe was the spur for the so-called Occupy movement in Wall Street and around the world and the Indignados in Spain.
