VIDEO: Thousands attend pro-government rally

Thousands of anti-austerity demonstrators gathered outside the parliament building in Athens to show their support to the Greek government in their negotiations with international creditors.

Most of the demonstrators were convinced the majority of Greeks will vote in favour of Greece staying in the eurozone in Sunday's referendum, which would then give the country more negotiating power in its talks with lenders.

Athens residents did not seem concerned the country's bailout expires at the end of the month, prior to referendum.

New Democracy lawmakers were not worried about Greece's fiscal future either.
