After sunrise at the largest open-pit mine in Europe, which destroyed 90% of an old growth forest 12,000 years old. Activists laid down a banner that was actually made for the 2015 Paris climate summit. "It's up to us to keep it in the ground." Second photo -- one of the activists tethers to the internet to send out press releases the moment the banner is laid out. Third photo -- the company has established a commercial viewing area for the mine, with beach chairs, two playgrounds, a restaurant, bike racks, etc. Cutting down 90% of an old growth forest & contaminating the earth with chemicals so it can never be used again, and you can enjoy it all from a beach chair.
