WITH STORY GREECE VOICES BY NIKOS PAPHITIS : Dimitris Dedoussis, 20, stands at the counter of his corner shop near Syntagma Square in central Athens, on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012. As Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras sets off around Europe to plead for more time to achieve the country’s tough reform targets, austerity-weary Greeks are bracing for new pain but mostly expect to stay in the 17-nation eurozone, come what may. Dedoussis said planned new cutbacks would have severe consequences on Greece’s battered middle class, adding that he expects protests sooner or later because people won’t be able to cope. He said he does not expect the debt-crippled country’s partners will be able to kick Greece out of the currency union, and will instead “seek ways of taking the last euro left in our pockets.”(AP Photo/Petros Giannakouris) less
