Dozens of protesters rallied outside of the European Union offices in Athens on Sunday to demand that no austerity deal be made between Greece and its creditors. Calling for a ‘no’ vote in next Sunday’s referendum, protesters chanted anti-EU slogans and held banners reading “No deal” and “Overthrow EU and IMF.” Some also sprayed graffiti on the ground railing against the deal. The protests were organized by ANTARSYA, a coalition of radical political organizations that consider themselves a front for anti-capitalist, revolutionary, communist left ideology, and radical ecology.
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has called a referendum to allow the Greek people to vote on whether to accept or reject the demands of Greece’s international creditors. It will take place on July 5.
