Stéphane Hessel rages from the sky

The writer, diplomat and long-time campaigner Stéphane Hessel died overnight February 26 into 27, aged 95.

His short essay Indignez-vous (Time for Outrage!), first published in 2010, has been translated into 10 languages, and became a call for social and political engagement, which inspired many movements, especially the Indignados in Spain and the Occupy Wall Street protestors in the United States.
