Thousands of Greeks celebrate referendum result

Athens, July 6, (RHC), – Thousands of joyful Greeks poured into the capital’s central square as the scale of the rejection to a bailout deal which would have imposed more austerity measures became evident.

One of those who have voted “No” claimed European leaders now know the Greek people are not afraid of anything. “ We just want a democratic Europe where social justice will prevail. This is the vision Tsipras has for Greece and we all share,” he told Euronews.

The Greek people's overwhelming support will be a strong tool in the hands of the Tsipras administration in the negotiations with creditors. The Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has met the country’s president and called for more negotiations.

“We gave an example of democracy,” he said. “What is needed now is the forging of our national unity, to unanimously shape a strong national front, to restore normalcy in the economy. We also need to immediately find a solution to the problems in the negotiations with our partners.”
