With capital controls set to be implemented as soon as this weekend, and with EU officials planning to convene an emergency meeting on either Saturday or Sunday, Greeks are understandably restless at the prospect of being 'Cyprus'd' while they wait to hear if they will be subject to further austerity or worse, a redenomination-fueled economic collapse.
On the eve of a critical Eurogroup meeting in Luxembourg where FinMin Yanis Varoufakis says no new proposal will be tabled, Greeks are taking to the streets ahead of an anti-austerity protest planned for Wednesday evening.
Here are the visuals:
