A police helicopter is seen in the sky as Greenpeace activists protesting against coal-fired generation fix a banner at the desacralized St Lambertus church in Erkelenz-Immerath, western Germany, on January 8, 2018, prior to the planned demolition of the church in order to make possible brown coal surface mining. Residents from the village of Immerath were relocated previously, as the area is to be exploited by German energy supplier RWE Power in an extension of their Tagebau Garzweiler open pit lignite mine. / AFP PHOTO / dpa / Henning Kaiser / Germany OUT
