The Protester: A Portfolio by Peter Hapak - LightBox

But he kept protesting.

Ahmad is one of more than a hundred protestors around the world photographed by TIME contract photographer Peter Hapak. From Oakland to New York, and across Europe and through the Middle East, Hapak and I traveled nearly 25,000 miles and photographed protesters and activists from eight countries.

We photographed protesters representing Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Oakland, Occupy the Hood, the Indignados of Spain, protesters in Greece, revolutionaries in Tunisia and Egypt, activists from Syria fleeing persecution, a crusader fighting corruption in India, Tea Party activists from New York, a renowned poet-turned-protestor from Mexico, and a protestor from Wisconsin who carries a shovel, topped by a flag.
