Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is taking it to the people.

In a speech late Friday evening, Tsipras said he’s going hold a referendum on a bailout deal July 5. 

It’s not quite clear which bailout package will be up for a vote, or whether the meetings scheduled for this weekend in Brussels are still going to happen.
