"Levy says the folks at Coca-Cola thought about converting the vending machines to take a dime. But doubling the price was too much. They wanted something in between.

UPDATE Now it gets confusing. claims two managers from Uber and not drivers were arrested. http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jun/29/uber-managers-detained-france

Did you guys read what was refused by the EU? And the IMF? Things like increasing taxes on banks and other companies, luxury, spending less on defense.
Things like these were rejected (not welcomed with a "nice, but not enough", rejected...).
Then they imposed raises in purchase tax (which usually companies escape legally and easily but which the consumer has no choice but paying), cuts in the lowest pensions.
I agree that a referendum should be done a month sooner, but so should the ultimatum, two played that game, not just Greece, but only one of those two was duly elected, the other is... well, not acting very democratically.
Meanwhile, the IMF made billions in profit with the Greek loans.
