On August 14, 2015, a group of World War Two survivors in Hong Kong, including Lam, took their 70-year-old fight and demanded Tokyo to convert millions of Japanese military yen issued during the war into usable money. Japan occupied Hong Kong for three years and eight months, during which people were forced to exchange their legal tender into military yen.

Every year, an average of seven people die from such attacks in the area, according to the government's forest department. Elephants come close to the villages because of lack of food in the forests where they usually live due to deforestation, villagers say. Picture taken February 6, 2013.

Some of the eldest members of the community, the ones that had been living at Puerta de Hierro longest, like Antonio and Milagros, have been entitled to relocation in social rent flats in the city, but often their children and grand-children have been denied the same right, leaving them homeless. The relatives whose houses are still standing take them in while the debris keeps piling up around them as more demolitions take place. Antonio and Milagros had to take in all their children, their spouses and grand-children when their homes got demolished in 2011.

Some of the eldest members of the community, the ones that had been living at Puerta de Hierro longest, like Antonio and Milagros, have been entitled to relocation in social rent flats in the city, but often their children and grand-children have been denied the same right, leaving them homeless. The relatives whose houses are still standing take them in while the debris keeps piling up around them as more demolitions take place. Antonio and Milagros had to take in all their children, their spouses and grand-children when their homes got demolished in 2011. When their's met the same in July 17, 2012 they had to resort to sleeping in their vans next to the remains of their former home.

A miner looks on inside the ancient Roman gold mine Catalina Monulesti in Rosia Montana village, 428 km (266 miles) northwest of Bucharest, October 6, 2011. Catalina Monulesti is currently under restoration as a future part of a mining museum. Rosia Montana town, made up of 16 villages that dot the slopes along the river Rosia, has hundred-year-old churches and houses, cemeteries and ancient Roman mine galleries. It also has gold. But for those who live here, that is more of a bane than anything else. Canada's Gabriel Resources wants to build Europe's largest open cast gold mine in Rosia Montana, a 15-year quest that has put the area at the centre of a national debate between heritage and development.
