ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: While Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said a 'Yes' vote would be a better option for Greece, hundreds of protesters marched through central Madrid in support of Greeks asking for the "No" vote. As Greeks vote in a referendum that may determine their future in Europe's common currency, hundreds of Spaniards took to the streets waving Greek flags and chanting in support of the 'No' vote. Demonstrators marched down Gran Via street to Cibeles square in front of Madrid´s city hall. Spain´s new left-wing political party Podemos has been close to Greece´s Szyriza and on Sunday, Podemos supporters rallied with their traditional purple banner. If Greeks vote 'Yes' to the bailout, the government has indicated it will resign, triggering a new chapter of uncertainty as political parties try to cobble together a national unity government to keep talks with lenders going until elections are held.
