EuroMemo Group supports a NO vote in the Greek referendum
The decision of the Greek government to call for a referendum after the collapse of the negotiations with the European and international institutions gives the Greek people the opportunity to reject the blackmail they are facing. Voting for NO is a vote against austerity and fear, a vote for democracy, dignity and sovereignty in Europe. At the same time, it is a vote defending the rights of the European people and the future of Europe.
