    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.

    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.

    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...

    Severely affected by the Covid epidemic, Belgium is burying its dead. In Brussels, Evere's only multi-faith cemetery is overwhelmed by the influx of Muslim dead.

    Due to a health ban, the body of the deceased cannot be repatriated by the families to their country of origin, as tradition requires. In order to ensure the daily burials may proceed efficiently, the cemetery's three gravediggers are assisted by a dozen Muslim volunteers.
    Adolescents, adults and retirees all lend a hand by digging graves and accompanying the families in their mourning. This solidarity, while respecting funeral rites, is a sign of trust for families of Muslim faith.

    The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: one war, two peoples caught between a rock and a hard place and a same pain. This conflict is often seen from an Armenian point of view, yet the decades of suffering it has generated have also deeply scarred Azeri history.

    During the first war, the bitter defeat and occupation of Azerbaijan's territory was accompanied by massacres of Azeri civilians and the deportation of 800,000 of them. The Azeri’s humiliation has been used by the ultra-nationalist regime in Baku to fan the flames of anger against Armenia for 30 years. This memory fueled the motivation for the conflict that just ended.
     
    Under the control of the Azerbaijani authorities, Yaël Goujon met with families who were victims of this war. He also accompanied the photo-reporter Reza Deghati near the frontlines.

    Samvel and Avo, two Armenian children born in Nagorno-Karabakh, are only ten. Yet they are already caught up in the sufferings of the war between their small, unrecognized republic and Azerbaijan.

    Shot between January and November 2020, the report follows the lives of these two little boys from Talish, a mountain village that was trying to come back to life, in the shadow of a forgotten conflict. After having already been bombed in 2016 and forced into four years of exile, the children and their families had just resettled in their home village, in new houses. But Talish is only a few kilometers from the border with Azerbaijan. War broke out at the end of September, the village was bombed and conquered by Azerbaijani forces.
     
    The two classmates and their parents’ lives dramatically illustrate the locals’ destinies – whose fate turned upside down in the space of a few months. Women and children flee to Yerevan where they find refuge with other tens of thousands of exiles. The men, for their part, leave for the front. Samvel and Avo start their young lives with the weight of this heritage and crushed hopes.

    The Romanian healthcare system cannot keep up with 10,000 new cases of covid19 per day; the mortality rate has soared between 70 and 90 per cent – the highest in the EU. Its economy was already in poor shape, now the crisis deepens.

    Outdated medical equipment, few drugs, few specialists: fraud, bribes and poor hospital management have wreaked havoc on the country’s medical facilities, whose doctors leave to practice elsewhere in Europe. A lack of investment and widespread corruption are plaguing the Romanian healthcare system, which has been overwhelmed by the outbreak of the virus.
    Romanians are dismayed and certainly do not trust in their government to get things back on an even keel. 30% of Romanians doubt the coronavirus even exists and seek comfort from the Orthodox Church, which is draining hundreds of faithful in defiance of the pandemic.

    FRANCE: WHEN THE TREES ARE THIRSTY, THE FOREST BURNS DOWN - 28-11-2020

    Three years of drought caused the Vosges forest to wither away, increasing the risk of fire.

    Since 2018, the Vosges forest has been a victim of drought and heat waves. The trees are literally drying out in the ground. A consequence of global warming that worries the fire department because it increases the risk of fire. Faced with this situation, all those who have stakes in the forest are preparing: whatever the scenario, global warming will force them to adapt.
     
    In 2020, the French National Forests Office (NFO) has identified 218,305 hectares of public forest affected by tree dieback. The lack of rain for several years has greatly weakened the trees. And this fragility is favoring the spread of insect pests. The spruce forests of many European countries are affected by an epidemic of bark beetles: France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Poland...
     
    Beyond the scale of the decline, it is the sheer number of species affected that is worrying : beech, fir, but also oak and pine. According to the NFO, this is the first time a phenomenon of such magnitude has been observed.
    To cope with the consequences of global warming, foresters are trying to find solutions designed to protect the forest by enabling it to adapt.

    The Nasa indigenous people, victims of racism and regularly attacked by paramilitary groups, are fighting for the recognition of their rights by protesting the Colombian government's disastrous management of the epidemic.

    The pandemic has further exacerbated the discrimination suffered by this tribe. This population of 185,000 indigenous people, whose very existence has been punished by the government, has taken the situation head on: they established roadblocks around their lands, a strict control of traffic, and disinfection of places of passage. And the strategy has paid off. While Covid-19 wreaked havoc in Colombia – 1.2 million people were infected, 32,000 died – only 976 Natives contracted the coronavirus and three of them died.
     
    In order to raise awareness of their cause, 8,000 indigenous people took the Panamerica towards Cali and then towards Bogotá, the country's capital. Along the way, their ranks swelled: a million people joined them as far as the Plaza de Bolívar, to protest the government and its disastrous handling of the epidemic in a country on the verge of bankruptcy.
