Crisis in Greece: Referendum rallies taking place

Yiorgos GR /

IN Greece, rival rallies are taking place ahead of this Sunday’s referendum vote, which could see Greece leaving the Eurozone.
The referendum, which will decide whether Greece accepts the terms of an international bailout, will be crucial for the country’s future. Supporters of the ‘no’ vote are against the terms, and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is expected to attend this rally.
Meanwhile, the country´s economy continues to spiral out of control since being denied access to extra funds, with limits on cash withdrawals and banks closing.
Opinion polls currently show the country almost evenly divided between the ‘yes’ and ‘no’ sides, with the yes vote at 44.8 per cent and the no vote at 43.4 per cent.
Nevertheless, the majority of Greek citizens seem to be in favour of the euro, as the same poll shows 74 per cent wishing to keep it and only 15 per cent hoping for a return to the national currency.
