Description

Tens of thousands of people are due to rally at the Panathenaic Stadium in Athens on July 3, under the slogan ‘Yes to the euro – we live in Europe’ to encourage people to vote ‘yes’ in the upcoming referendum on Sunday, which gives the Greek people the right to choose whether to accept to bailout conditions of the institutions. A rally against further austerity measures and for the 'no‘ vote will take place on Syntagma Square at the same time. The government's current bailout expired on Tuesday when the country was due to pay the IMF €1.6bn (£1.1bn), a payment they failed to meet. A 'no' vote by the Greek people would reject new austerity measures that are demanded by Greece's creditors – the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Commission (EC) - while a 'yes' would accept the institutions' course for a new Greek bailout package. The Greek government closed the country's banks and imposed capital controls on withdrawals until July 6, the day after Greeks are due to vote in the referendum.
