Danish Picture of the Year 2023 by Christian Falck Wolff.
Since 2020, a group of climate activists have occupied the village Lützerath in the western part of Germany. The activists are fighting against the expansion of a coal mine outside the village. Due to the expansion, the citizens of Lützerath have been moved and the village will be demolished. In the beginning of 2023, the authorities started to remove the people from the area and begin the expansion of the mine. Thousands of people from all over the World travelled to Lützerath to protect the village. This lead to clashes between the police and the activists. In the picture, the uniformed police have lined up to make sure, that nobody gets to the mine. Photo: Christian Falck Wolff
