Greece Faces Pivotal Choice In Sunday Referendum

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is calling on voters to reject a proposed bailout when they head to the polls on Sunday. In a televised address today, he also told Greeks that Sunday’s referendum is not a vote on whether Greece will stay in the eurozone.
