Denmark - Euro

NPR's Guy Raz reports from Copenhagen, where voters are preparing to take part in tomorrow's referendum on Danish membership in the European Monetary Union. A "yes" vote would mean adopting the Euro. The Danish Prime Minister handed out roses in the streets today, hoping to persuade Danes to vote for membership. The Euro's tumbling value in recent weeks could dampen support for joining the single currency. But "no" vote activists say their main objection to the Euro is that abandoning their national currency amounts to a loss of national sovereignty. Polls indicate the vote is too close to call.
