Photocall: EUROPE RESISTS. 9.45 PM outside EU parliament (Brussels)

"EUROPE RESISTS" in massive illuminated letters will be the message of a citizens` celebration on the steps of the EU Parliament

Europeans holding candles and celebrating with EU-flags as well as face painted citizens in blue and golden stars will surround the illuminated letters

Citizens across Europe have turned out in record numbers to vote in European elections that many feared would show a Europe breaking apart, according to early results. A voter turnout surge has happened instead of a surge of the far-right

Where: Steps of the European Parliament 

When: 9.45 CET

Press Contact: Daniel Boese: +491778405700

Avaaz Campaign Director, Christoph Schott, says: "Tonight we see the Birth of a New Europe, a People's Europe. The overwhelming majority reject far right and nationalists, populists are not that popular. This is the beginning of something big: The EU is no longer just a project of elites, it is a dream of the people."
