Time Magazine has started its poll for the Top 100 Most influential Person in 2011 and Mohammad Al Bouazizi has made the list, which is fantastic news.
I now need all our followers to click on this link and vote 'YES' for Bouazizi
Mohammad is currently running in 12th place on the list. The list is used to influence the panel, not just to make the decision for Time Magazine, so the higher we can get on the list and more Yes votes that we gather the better.
Please do vote for Mohammad Al Bouazizi now.
Thank you for all your support.

Muhammad Al Bouazizi continues to be remembered in press commentary around the world. In the last 24 hours stories have appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, not once but twice, the New York Times, and on Bradenton.com. Please do read the stories but most of all write to Time here and ask them to Make Muhammad Al Bouazizi their Person of the Year 2011,and sign our petition.

Many thanks to everyone who has been writing to Time magazine, visiting the blog, signing the petition and visiting our Facebook page.
I will update details occasinally of how we are doing, traffic wise, so we can measure how the camapign is working.
We had our most visited 'day' of the camapign on 28 Feb when we measured 148 page impressions.
Visitors are coming from all round the world including UK, US, Canada, France, Germany, India and of course - Tunisia. In fact there are now too many countries to mention. Welcome all.
The petition now has 149 names and 177 'likes'. Please keep signing!
And our Facebook page is experiencing huge traffic with 4 figure page impressions and over 250 'likes' on the site.
Keep doing all this good stuff and passing the word along, and most importantly - please write to Time and ask them to make Muhammad Al Bouazizi their 'Person of the Year 2011'

According to a report in The National, a film is to be made marking the effects of Muhammad Al Bouazizi's act of protest and its after effects.
The film is to be produced by Tunisian born (now Paris based) film producer Tarak ben Ammar, who's credits include work on films such as Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Life of Brian (all of which had parts shot in Tunisia).
I will also be writing to Mr Ammar asking him to support the campaign - but if anyone happens to know him, perhaps they could point him in the direction of this blog?
