    Kiruna is a town on the edge of Lapland. It is on the verge of collapsing on itself because of intensive drilling into the world's largest iron ore deposit. Therefore, the entire town must be relocated by 2040. That includes all houses, schools, streets and railways.

    Operated for more than 120 years, the Kiruna mine is the largest underground iron ore mine in the world – with corridors plunging down to a depth of 1775 meters. It accounts for 90% of Europe's iron ore reserves. However, miners have been drilling ever further underneath people's homes; entire districts are now in jeopardy.
    The city is 23,000 inhabitants large – 18,000 of whom live in the city center. To avoid its impending doom, it has to be moved 5 km further: a genuine urban planning revolution that includes moving railways, motorways, churches, schools, houses...

    Every year, hundreds of thousands of people from South America attempt to illegally cross the border between the United States and Mexico – trying to escape the violence in their homeland. Donald Trump's policies have made them unwelcome in a country where anything is possible.

    They are Salvadorians, Hondurans or Mexicans. Last year, more than a million of them were arrested within the United States after illegally entering the country. The Trump administration has been treating them like common criminals: sent to prison for months, forced to wear electronic bracelets, or deported before they could even apply for asylum.
     
    José is a 25-year-old Salvadoran; he risks being killed by gangs in his country. He is now seeking asylum and protection in the United States.

    On Cape Verde Island, uncontrolled sand mining has been officially illegal since 2010. But for many women, it remains the only way to feed their children or allow them to study. They sell their meager loot for a miserable sum to unscrupulous manufacturers who use it to make cinder blocks.

    Isolated, 700 kilometres off the Senegalese coast, Cape Verde Island has no natural resources. One in four people live on less than two euros a day.
    The same actions are repeated from generation to generation by the women of Cape Verde. Every day, they rake the beaches. Bucket and shovel in hand they scrape, gather and filter the sand: this volcanic archipelago's black gold.
    Now, some beaches have been completely destroyed. The black gold has run out. Only pebbles remain. The environmental consequences are disastrous: accelerated coastal erosion, depletion of fish stocks and salt pollution of groundwater and the surrounding fields.

    Jair Bolsonaro, the newly elected Brazilian president is worrisome. He longs for the worst days of the military dictatorship and has a habit of making racist, misogynistic and homophobic provocations. Nevertheless, his electoral base is young and very vocal online.

    Bolsonaro intends to shape this youth in his own image – starting from childhood. He promised to create new military colleges run by the army, where patriotism and nationalism will be the pillars of education.
    The new Brazilian president's first battle is ideological: to win it, he surrounded himself with particularly violent and unapologetic lobbyists – like the supporters of the "Nonpartisan School" movement. The latter considers public school teachers as "Marxist ideologues" who must be "eradicated".
    Supported by young pro-Bolsonaro representatives, this movement does not hesitate to post pictures of teachers judged too left-wing on social networks. Even if it means ruining their lives...

    In northern Mali, a region plagued by Islamic terrorism, G5 Sahel patrols are fighting back against jihadis. Since 2012, Islamic extremists linked to al-Qaeda have taken control of northern Mali by exploiting a Tuareg separatist uprising.

    Their control of the region – combined with the weakness of Bamako's power and the fragility of the Sahel region – is a cause for concern. Despite French intervention and the deployment of joint forces from five Sahelian countries, terrorist groups still control a large part of the region and are increasingly influential in Burkina Faso and Niger.
    How do African states fight terrorism over such a vast territory? How are the actions on the ground implemented? The task is daunting and uncertain in this high-tension area.

    These journalists are aged from 10 to 17 and produce a newspaper that is unique in the world, made by and for street children. Jyoti is their editor-in-chief. She never sat on school benches and successively begged, stole and collected garbage... before working for Balaknama, "The Children's Voice".

    They now print 8,000 copies in Hindi and English; the newspaper is entirely managed by children and highlights positive initiatives. Yet it does not hesitate to address police brutality, drug problems and forced labor, to the point of moving local authorities on some of the subjects denounced in its pages. A great achievement for a publication whose journalists’ average age is 14...
    Balaknama has changed the fate of the 400 children who have had a hand in its success since its launch in 2003. Jyoti got over her drug addiction and would like to continue to help other kids in trouble. Deepak, 16, has resumed his studies; after years of working at the factory, he would like to like to become a TV presenter someday.
    Every single one of them is proud to take up this daunting task with renewed pride: to carry the voice of the 100,000 street children of Delhi.

    Venezuela is in trouble. The supporters of a revolution that is already twenty years old face off against the proponents of liberalism. On one side, President Maduro, Chavez's heir – supported by Iran, Cuba, Russia or Turkey. On the other hand, a young self-proclaimed president, Juan Guaidó – supported by Donald Trump and a majority of EU countries.

    This new would-be president has the support of millions of Venezuelans who chose to leave the country – a support justified by his fierce criticism of the current regime's alleged incompetence in dealing with the country's corruption and economic troubles. In a country that is already weakened economically, not a week goes by without a violent protest – the confrontations have already taken 200 lives in four years. The two sides are not anywhere near ready to bury the hatchet. Director Gonzalo Arijon has been following the Chavist revolution since its beginnings. Over the span of ten days, he has directed this bittersweet chronicle through a torn up country...

    The Islamic State has reached the end of its territorial existence. The last days of the self-proclaimed caliphate are played out in eastern Syria; a third of the country is controlled by the Kurdish administration, which is not recognized by anyone.

    We met men and women who testify to the wounds left by 5 years of jihadist rule:
     
    Samira and Hafida, two Belgian and Dutch jihadists who live in Roj camp, waiting for their countries to decide their fate.
    Bahoz and Simco, commanders of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish and Arab alliance, who have been in all the battles against the Islamic State organization. They have led the final battle against the last jihadist pockets of resistance on the Baghouz front – at the confines of Syria and Iraq – alongside the coalition forces that would soon leave.
    Mahmoud Kero, a Kurdish civil servant with an impossible task: to manage the camps where tens of thousands of jihadists, wounded civilians and exhausted children have been arriving for weeks.

    In Abidjan, as in the rest of the country, the racketeering practiced by the police is marring the people's lives. The country is trying to get rid of the everyday corruption that plagues Ivorian society.

    The roadblocks that dot the country are a legacy of the conflicts of the past 20 years. In each, police officers are taking money from goods trucks, buses, and individuals. Since all commercial traffic is carried out by road, the racketeering generates colossal sums of money, a parallel economy that does not contribute a dime to state coffers.
    These corrupt civil servants are known as the “1000-eaters” because of the 1000 CFA franc bills – that amount to 1.50€ – that they take from Ivorians. In the best of cases, they only take small sums. But sometimes, the racket turns into a mugging that may end in death.
    In the Military Tribunal of Abidjan, magistrates try, with very limited means, to fight against impunity. The cases are piling up: 80 cents extorted to avoid a fine, 4500 euros against the assurance of avoiding prison time, the murder of a young student who refused to pay 3 euros to bribe a soldier... Delve at the heart of a corrupt system that causes much turmoil to tentative democracies.

    To convert or to continue to live one's faith in fear: Father Parvez wants to help the people trapped in this dilemma. Parvez is the parish priest of a district of Faisalabad, the country's third largest city. He fights to improve the daily lives of Pakistani Christians threatened by Islamic fundamentalism.

    Intolerance towards Christians is on the rise in the country. Regularly accused of blasphemy towards Islam without tangible proof – as the Asia Bibi case reminded us –, deprived of access to certain professions without any law stipulating it, these descendants of Hindus converted in the 18th century have a hard time living in a country where 97% of the population claims to be Muslim.
    But, armed with an unshakable faith, this man of the cloth not only tries to consolidate the links with those he calls his Muslim brothers, but also tries to help his own.
    Organizer and commentator of a soccer tournament where players of different faiths experience religious tolerance, this longtime Manchester United supporter also buys up the debts of Christian families exploited in Punjab brickyards – with inhumane working conditions – before relocating them to a village built especially for them.
    Meet this churchman convinced that religious harmony will eventually prevail in his country.

    This protest movement has all the makings of a “revolution”. And by chanting slogans hostile to the king and the monarchy, the demonstrators, who have been occupying the streets and universities of Bangkok since this summer, have crossed a line.

    For the first time in the country's history, the monarchy is being publicly criticized and disavowed. And, through it, the critics are aimed at King Rama X. Angry and cruel, the sovereign is now being blamed for most of the evils that brought the country to its knees. Since the Covid crisis, tourism and the economy have grinded to a halt.
    Like thousands of other high school and university students, Fleur joined the protests very early on to end the military dictatorship and reform the monarchy. This student of literature and political science became one of the leaders of a movement without hierarchy, inspired by the anti-CCP revolt born in Hong Kong.
