The tiny Greek island sinking under Europe’s migrant crisis ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpxz8Pf2VNE

Leros is a tiny Greek island seven miles from the Turkish coast where 2,500 migrants have arrived illegally by boat in the last three weeks. Without support from Athens or Europe, overstretched local authorities rely on a committed team of local volunteers to prevent chaos and humanitarian crisis. But as increasing numbers of migrants arrive at Leros, the island is at breaking point, as Phoebe Greenwood reports

How migrants were trafficked to work on Britain’s free-range farms | Guardian Features ► http://bit.ly/BadEggsFilm

Laurynas was just 19 when he was trafficked into the UK to work with 30 other Lithuanians, catching chickens. They worked in a supply chain producing premium free-range eggs for McDonald’s, Tesco, Asda, M&S and Sainsbury’s. He says he was driven around the UK to undertake back-to-back eight-hour shifts for days at a time, worked in dangerous conditions, and was denied sleep and toilet breaks. He alleges pay was repeatedly withheld and that a supervisor assaulted workers, intimidated them with fighting dogs and threatened them with eviction if they complained.

I went to meet Caroline Lucas, the Green Party's only MP and former leader, to talk about what it means to be a Green, whether or not she's a socialist and to find out what hope she holds for the future.

We also chatted about why the Labour Party and Ed Miliband failed so badly at the last election, the need for a progressive coalition and what she thinks of the image of the Greens as a party for middle-class, sandal-wearing hippies.

The Yes Men's solution to California's drought: if you eat beef, don't wash | Guardian Docs ► http://bit.ly/TheYesMenDoc

Would you stop showering if it meant that was the only way you could keep eating beef?
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
California's ongoing drought needs radical action. But in a state dependent on water-hungry meat production, it would be politically dangerous to suggest eating less beef. Activists the Yes Men collaborated with comedy video website Funny or Die to produce a spoof campaign encouraging California's hipsters to skip showers for beef. Did it fool anyone?

Can Arctic oil drilling help save the climate? | Keep it in the ground  ► http://bit.ly/ArcticOilKiitg

Shell has spent over $6bn on Arctic drilling without so far producing a drop of oil.
Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian
It is on the verge of another attempt to extract some of the estimated 400bn barrels equivalent of oil and gas at the top of the world. But drilling in the Arctic is expensive and dangerous. And oil prices have fallen dramatically. Will this and government action thwart Shell's ambitions?

But unlike most other Britons, he decided to leave his job and fly to Syria to join the fight on the ground. He argues that the British government has let down the people of Syria and Iraq, and calls for them to increase bombing raids and further arm the resistance.
