The Wider Image: Turkish olive farmer battles to save her land from coal mine
Tayyibe Demirel, 64, who is refusing to sell her olive grove to coal mining companies, is seen in her olive grove in Turgut village near southwestern town of Yatagan in Mugla province, Turkey, March 2, 2021. Picture taken with a drone. Behind Demirel's olive groves lies a vast, grey expanse, stripped bare by a coal mine eating into the rolling hillside. On the horizon, heavy smoke billows from three giant chimneys of the power plant by the town of Yatagan. "All the land around will be dug and plundered, and the olive grove will be stuck in the middle," Demirel said. "I object. I will continue my struggle, and seek my rights. How am I supposed to come to my field? Land here from the sky with a helicopter?" REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "UMIT COAL" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
