* Russia believes that “Greece has taken a step towards the exit from the euro zone.”
* The Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos (coalition ally of the government of Alexis Tsipras), believes that “the Greek people has proven that it is not subjected to blackmail” on his twitter account.
* “A victory of the no vote would force the country to rapidly introduce a new currency,” warned Sunday the President of the so-called “European” Parliament Martin Schulz.
The “no” to the proposals of Greece’s creditors remained at 60% Sunday night, after counting 40% of ballots. The trend was quickly emerged: after counting 15% of votes, the “no” already recorded 60.29%, against 39.71% for the “yes.” The proportions were about the same after 30% of ballots were counted. The “no” is ever before, with 60.69%, against 39.31% for the “yes.” The participation rate is rather high: 58.44%. The government of Alexis Tsipras called to vote “no” in the referendum he has organized in barely a week. The Prime Minister had however stated that in case of victory of “yes”, he would abide by the will of the Greek people and accept the proposals of Greece’s creditors (IMF, ECB, EU). This is an earthquake for pro-American politicians in Brussels, for the EU and the eurozone.
THE ESPONSE OF BRUSSELS:
A “VERSAILLES TREATY OF THE EUROZONE”?
For once lucid, The French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron anticipated the victory of the no vote and concidered Sunday that “whatever” the result of the referendum in Greece, the Europeans should “resume political discussions” with the country . “If the no wins, it would be a historic mistake to crush the Greek people,” he said, calling for “not doing the Versailles Treaty of the euro zone.”
And this explains why Brussels did not want this referendum. And also why this comprador oligarchy fears all referenda!
* Read the analysis of EODE THINK TANK:
The European Union does not like referenda: after Crimea here is Greece!
The victory of the No vote is “a leap into the unknown”, according to many observers. Athens counts on a resumption of negotiations with its creditors to achieve a new agreement. Not sure, however, that Greece’s partners agree. In case of complete rupture of the dialogue, the Greek banks, which the ECB will not more feed with fresh money, could go bankrupt. The government could create cash with IOUs. Provisional titles that could quickly lose their value. With it, a runaway inflation would threaten the country. And anyway the Eurozone emerges in a long and serious crisis.
