New Greek Currency?

Local communities in Greece are setting up their own currencies, with the most notable being the Tem. You can read the full story here (hat tip - Chris Colvin). Why are they doing this? Is it anti-Euro sentiment? Is Greece about to exit the Euro and go back to the drachma (see below)? Is it just Greeks asserting and projecting their local identity? My guess is that it has to do with tax evasion.
