Brandenburg, Germany. This church, in the tiny village of Kerkwitz, will be bulldozed if the mining plans in the area go ahead. Swedish mining company Vattenfall has been buying up large areas of land for coal mining purposes in eastern Germany. Often, villages located on purchased land are forced to relocate, or significantly alter their ways of life when mining companies move in.
