Deniz Gumusel, senior consultant on environmental policy and management, chats with Aytac Yakar, a 53-year-old villager from abandoned Isikdere neighbourhood of Ikizkoy village, near southwestern town of Milas in Mugla province, Turkey, February 25, 2021. Gumusel said three coal power plants in the region caused the death of 45,000 people in the more than 40 years since the first plant came online, mostly due to cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. "This is like war, against people and against forests and ecosystems," she said. But the determination of villagers and some women means there is still room for optimism, she insisted. "Women are carrying out an incredible fight against this unjust coal business. They were very successful in stopping or slowing down the progression of the mines."

Tayyibe Demirel, 64, who is refusing to sell her olive grove to coal mining companies, chats with a mining company official in her olive grove in Turgut village near southwestern town of Yatagan in Mugla province, Turkey, February 24, 2021. Demirel won a new court case against the expansion of an open-pit coal mine towards her village. She's a part of "No Coal Mugla", a local movement to stop coal expansion and battle pollution. Looking over the vast lands of open coal mines, dry and grey lands neighbouring her olive grove, what she calls a "pit of hell," Demirel says: "I am in love with the trees, the green. I am in love with the singing of the birds and nature. Three or four years ago, this demolished land was full of tulips, poppies and daisies. Which one is better, a hell pit or nature?"

Smoke rises from Yatagan thermal power plant near southwestern town of Yatagan in Mugla province, Turkey, February 24, 2021. Five villages have already disappeared as mines serving the Yatagan power station have expanded, and the village of Turgut is now threatened. Across the province of Mugla 5,000 hectares, the equivalent of nearly 8,000 football fields, has been lost to mining in the last four decades, campaigners say. Asked about its plans to expand the mine, Yatagan Power Plant told Reuters it has planted more than 1.5 million trees in the region and its operations respect the environment and are carried out under supervision of relevant Turkish ministries.
