"I think people are too afraid. This situation will only last a few days, but then everything will be fine. There is no reason for the lines at gas stations and supermarkets. We were at the grocery store and people are buying as if there was war, "said another woman.

According to Reuters, a source linked to the Government said that Greece will not pay the IMF the "tranche" of 1.6 billion euros, you win this Tuesday.

"Many things depend on the ability of companies to pay the wages of workers. We hope that there is agreement because things are pretty bad, "said an inhabitant of Athens.

"The truth is that lenders want to strangle us. And press. The question is how long we can hold out, "said a retired.
