Who made your week by speaking truth to power, blowing the whistle or standing up to injustice?

Truthdigger of the Week is a feature in which we recognize a person or group that made a difference.

See past winners here. Nominate this week’s winner here.

Last week, we recognized British journalist Laurie Penny, the 25-year-old self-described “journalist, author, feminist, socialist, utopian, general reprobate and troublemaker” who squared off against a former Goldman Sachs partner on BBC Newsnight after Occupy Wall Street’s Nov. 17 rallies. Here’s that clip again, which has all the makings of an iconic moment for a generation struggling for its future against a class of elites that simply won’t listen.
