Photo Competition Climate Crisis Submission - trees

I took this photo during intense protests against destroying Puszcza Białowieska in Poland. Government of Poland was logging old trees for income. It sparked a resistance from eco activist and citizens. Amazing people and activists had build a camp near Puszcza, community led, to stop harvesters and government. What is interesting, is the language used against eco activist – they were called eco terrorists, non-believers. In the same time camp for Puszcza was a safe space, welcoming to everyone – of every gender, sexual orientation, wealth, nationality.
