The fight over limestone mining in the ancient Ojnare forest of Gotland, the largest island in Sweden, has become a highly charged, local manifestation of a conflict you find all over the world, a conflict pinning industry and jobs against the environment. In “The Limestone Conflict,” we meet three representatives from different sides of the issue that has divided the island. An activist, a miner, and a local land owner tell their stories, and give us a glimpse into why this has become such a divisive conflict.
