In Germany, polls show climate change has overtaken immigration as the issue voters in the EU’s most populous nation are most concerned about.
In Germany, Angela Merkel’s hard-won Grand Coalition could be in for a new blow, as polls predict low support in the regional election in the state of Hesse on Sunday. Among the main contenders are the Green party allied with other left-wing forces, though national-conservative Alternative for Germany is projected to strengthen its position too.

Fields Of Green for All, a Johannesburg legalisation non profit, took a road trip down into Lesotho for Cannabis News Network for the real story behind ‘Africa’s First Country to Grant Medical Marijuana Licenses’.
Lesotho has the record of being the only country in the world with an average height over 1000 meters and is a slow drive through the mountains.
It’s a geographically challenging and economically impoverished place to live. The WHO estimates life expectancy at just over 50 years.

In late June, Berlin’s central Kreuzberg district became the scene of a tense standoff between a group of refugees squatting in an abandoned school and the district authorities. The refugees had moved into the school after authorities destroyed refugee camps just a few months earlier. As more and more squatters moved in, the governing Green party faced pressure to resolve a situation where hygiene was deteriorating and crime was becoming an issue.
On June 24, authorities attempted to evict refugees from the school. With the refugees refusing to leave, the school and surrounding neighborhood block was besieged for eight days by riot police, protesters and press.
VICE News was on the scene from day one and documented the events that would ultimately mark the climax of Germany’s refugee protest. We gained access inside the school to document the situation and were also on the scene as negotiations between authorities and refugees were taking place to resolve the standoff.
