Greeks must vote no

Greece's opposition leader and former prime minister Antonis Samaras has described Sunday's referendum as a vote on whether or not to remain in the EU - and not on the creditors' austerity demands. But only by voting no can the Greeks stay in the European Union, blogger Pitsirikos writes: "If all the Greeks were to vote no, Greece's position in the European Union would be secure. Saying yes to the requirements would sooner or later lead to Greece exiting the EU. Only a no would be taken seriously by the EU leaders. In addition, other European countries that are keeping a close eye on the situation will follow our lead. A yes would mean prolonging the policy of sky-rocketing state debt, impoverishment, emigration and all the other ills that austerity has brought with it. A yes would mean subordination. And that would be the end."
