SOT I'm here to show solidarity to the Greek people for having the courage that we still did not have.SOTI am here today in solidarity with the fight of the Greek people and to show my solidarity with the ones who tomorrow will vote 'NO' to austerity measures.Like Greece, Portugal needed financial assistance four years ago.The government at the time agreed to the bailout conditions set out by the Troika.And with legislative elections just a few months away in Portugal, many people here are watching Greece very closely.Sot Patrick ArtusThe Greek economy represents 0.4 percent of the eurozone, so if there is a Grexit it doesn't really matter, that is not the key point. The problem is the message that it would send about the solidity of the institutions. A Grexit would undoubtably shake Europe. It would demonstrate that membership of the eurozone is not permanent and might effect the borrowing costs for some countries for example.But it would not inevitably lead to political rebellion elsewhere.In Portugal all three main parties agreed to follow the austerity plan which concluded in May last year and there is no party which is a real equivalent to Syriza.National leaders in Spain and Italy, which also have stuggling economies, have also publically called on Athens to follow the rules.
