A day of reckoning Sunday, when Greece holds a referendum on it's future in Europe's single currency. Tens of thousands of people are out on the streets calling for Greeks to just say no. (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) SUPPORTER OF THE 'NO' VOTE, FROSO MORFI, SAYING: "We are hoping for something better. I hope the 'No' of the people is so powerful that we can see better days, because if people say yes, they will be condemned." But it is not just the "no" supporters out on the streets. Thousands are making the case for yes. (SOUNDBITE) (Greek) PRO-EUROPE SUPPORTER, GEORGE BENOS, SAYING: "We will vote yes, only yes, because this is the hope for Greece. We have seen what the government has done to us. In these five months, they have taken us back ten years at least." With Greeks asked to decide whether to accept or reject the tough terms of the bailout, three opinion polls had the 'Yes' vote narrowly ahead; with a fourth giving the 'No' camp the edge. All polls are well within the margin of error.
