“We call on EU leaders to assume political responsibility for the future of the EU and to convene an extraordinary summit within the next few hours.

“If EU leaders are serious about democracy and solidarity, they must extend the deadline ending tomorrow so that the Greek people can vote freely and autonomously on the last official proposal by the creditors dated 25 June 2015.

“On the one hand, the creditors have been trying for months to impose unacceptable conditions on the Greek government. On the other hand, now that the talks have stopped, they say they were willing to make further concessions. That is hypocritical and will further damage public confidence in the EU and its institutions.”
