    On Cape Verde Island, uncontrolled sand mining has been officially illegal since 2010. But for many women, it remains the only way to feed their children or allow them to study. They sell their meager loot for a miserable sum to unscrupulous manufacturers who use it to make cinder blocks.

    Isolated, 700 kilometres off the Senegalese coast, Cape Verde Island has no natural resources. One in four people live on less than two euros a day.
    The same actions are repeated from generation to generation by the women of Cape Verde. Every day, they rake the beaches. Bucket and shovel in hand they scrape, gather and filter the sand: this volcanic archipelago's black gold.
    Now, some beaches have been completely destroyed. The black gold has run out. Only pebbles remain. The environmental consequences are disastrous: accelerated coastal erosion, depletion of fish stocks and salt pollution of groundwater and the surrounding fields.

    These journalists are aged from 10 to 17 and produce a newspaper that is unique in the world, made by and for street children. Jyoti is their editor-in-chief. She never sat on school benches and successively begged, stole and collected garbage... before working for Balaknama, "The Children's Voice".

    They now print 8,000 copies in Hindi and English; the newspaper is entirely managed by children and highlights positive initiatives. Yet it does not hesitate to address police brutality, drug problems and forced labor, to the point of moving local authorities on some of the subjects denounced in its pages. A great achievement for a publication whose journalists’ average age is 14...
    Balaknama has changed the fate of the 400 children who have had a hand in its success since its launch in 2003. Jyoti got over her drug addiction and would like to continue to help other kids in trouble. Deepak, 16, has resumed his studies; after years of working at the factory, he would like to like to become a TV presenter someday.
    Every single one of them is proud to take up this daunting task with renewed pride: to carry the voice of the 100,000 street children of Delhi.

    In northern Mali, a region plagued by Islamic terrorism, G5 Sahel patrols are fighting back against jihadis. Since 2012, Islamic extremists linked to al-Qaeda have taken control of northern Mali by exploiting a Tuareg separatist uprising.

    Their control of the region – combined with the weakness of Bamako's power and the fragility of the Sahel region – is a cause for concern. Despite French intervention and the deployment of joint forces from five Sahelian countries, terrorist groups still control a large part of the region and are increasingly influential in Burkina Faso and Niger.
    How do African states fight terrorism over such a vast territory? How are the actions on the ground implemented? The task is daunting and uncertain in this high-tension area.

    Jair Bolsonaro, the newly elected Brazilian president is worrisome. He longs for the worst days of the military dictatorship and has a habit of making racist, misogynistic and homophobic provocations. Nevertheless, his electoral base is young and very vocal online.

    Bolsonaro intends to shape this youth in his own image – starting from childhood. He promised to create new military colleges run by the army, where patriotism and nationalism will be the pillars of education.
    The new Brazilian president's first battle is ideological: to win it, he surrounded himself with particularly violent and unapologetic lobbyists – like the supporters of the "Nonpartisan School" movement. The latter considers public school teachers as "Marxist ideologues" who must be "eradicated".
    Supported by young pro-Bolsonaro representatives, this movement does not hesitate to post pictures of teachers judged too left-wing on social networks. Even if it means ruining their lives...

    The Islamic State has reached the end of its territorial existence. The last days of the self-proclaimed caliphate are played out in eastern Syria; a third of the country is controlled by the Kurdish administration, which is not recognized by anyone.

    We met men and women who testify to the wounds left by 5 years of jihadist rule:
     
    Samira and Hafida, two Belgian and Dutch jihadists who live in Roj camp, waiting for their countries to decide their fate.
    Bahoz and Simco, commanders of the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish and Arab alliance, who have been in all the battles against the Islamic State organization. They have led the final battle against the last jihadist pockets of resistance on the Baghouz front – at the confines of Syria and Iraq – alongside the coalition forces that would soon leave.
    Mahmoud Kero, a Kurdish civil servant with an impossible task: to manage the camps where tens of thousands of jihadists, wounded civilians and exhausted children have been arriving for weeks.

    Venezuela is in trouble. The supporters of a revolution that is already twenty years old face off against the proponents of liberalism. On one side, President Maduro, Chavez's heir – supported by Iran, Cuba, Russia or Turkey. On the other hand, a young self-proclaimed president, Juan Guaidó – supported by Donald Trump and a majority of EU countries.

    This new would-be president has the support of millions of Venezuelans who chose to leave the country – a support justified by his fierce criticism of the current regime's alleged incompetence in dealing with the country's corruption and economic troubles. In a country that is already weakened economically, not a week goes by without a violent protest – the confrontations have already taken 200 lives in four years. The two sides are not anywhere near ready to bury the hatchet. Director Gonzalo Arijon has been following the Chavist revolution since its beginnings. Over the span of ten days, he has directed this bittersweet chronicle through a torn up country...

    After incarceration, resilience: faced with years of torture during their imprisonment, Syrian women now tell their history on a theater stage... French-Syrian producer Ramzi Choukair asked them to write their own story and playing themselves on stage.

    Mariam, Hind, Ayat and Roweida are Syrian. They share a common history of being incarcerated in the infamous Adra prison in Damas – whether under Hafez al-Assad or his son Bashar’s regime. They have paid a hefty price for their political commitment. After their liberation they have all fled Syria and now live in Europe. They now testify for the others – all the ones who still languish in the Syrian regime's prisons.

    Since the official end of the war against the Islamic State last Fall, Iraq has imprisoned thousands of terrorists hailing from the world over – they had come to support the Islamic extremist organization.
    Human Rights activists are worried about this secretive, unpredictable and overworked Justice system – a regular target for the Islamic State.

    Iraqis however are increasingly frustrated by the constant questioning about their institutions. They are reaffirming their legitimacy to judge European terrorists who committed some of the worst crimes against populations.
     
    Among the prisoners there are some surviving fighters but more importantly there are thousands of women and children – most of them were captured in Mosul. The adults risk the death penalty (by hanging), following their trial by a criminal court.

    Germany hosts the largest Turkish diaspora in the world – with about 1,4 million voters registered. They will be able to vote from June 7 to 19 for the Turkish presidential and legislative elections.  But this diaspora is deeply divided.

    Tensions are rising between the Turks who have been living in Germany for decades, the ones who were born there and the ones who immigrated in recent years as political refugees. The anti-Erdogans are sure of their success while the pro-Erdogans are a little less certain than during the previous ballots.

    Turkey enjoys a strong economic growth. And yet the Turkish people's anger is brewing in the streets of Istanbul and beyond. More and more people find themselves struggling financially. This unease could very well make votes swing in the coming election on June 24.

    The country is experiencing a severe monetary crisis. Faced with a double-digit inflation, some dare openly express their ire for the first time. They publicly accuse the regime of mishandling the crisis. Up until now, Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamic conservative party could always rely on the state of the economy to enjoy strong popular support.

    To weather the anticipated elections of June 24, the Turkish opposition parties have formed an alliance that is equal parts unique and eclectic. Their leitmotiv is to oppose President Erdogan's hyper-presidency project.

    Two candidates stand out against him: Muharrem Ince and the nationalist Meral Aksener. They now both have enough support to give the population a glimpse of an alternative to the current regime. But since the failed coup of July 2016, the country was declared in a state of emergency. The campaign unfolds under intense scrutiny.

    Between the armed groups, the kidnappings and the bombs, biodiversity has become a collateral victim of the Syrian conflict. Syrian agronomists have saved more than 140.000 types of seeds that they forwarded to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the North Pole.

    Nowadays, Syrian scientists in exile make the trip up to the North Pole to recover their collection in this storehouse – the only one of its kind: a vault in ice that preserves a security copy of all the plants that are essential to humankind. They intend to regrow them on Lebanese and Moroccan soils.
