To Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, Charles Michel, President of the European Council and EU heads of state
We, the undersigned people of Europe, call upon EU leaders and heads of state to refuse to recognise any victor of the US Presidential Election until all votes have been counted.
Why is this important?
The result is contested, and votes are still being counted in the election that will decide the next American President. There's so much at stake.
From addressing climate change to peace and stability in the world to the fight for racial justice, the United States has a key role to play in the global community. And the next four years will be vital on all these fronts. If American democracy is threatened now, global progress on all of these issues that we've spent years fighting for could be rolled back.
Anti-democratic forces in the EU are already making moves. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša both endorsed Trump well before the election, signaling their willingness to interfere.  What we really need now is for our leaders to help stop this crisis - by refusing to recognise any winner until all the votes are counted.
If Europeans stand up now, we can get our leaders to publicly state that they won’t recognise any candidate until all the votes are counted. By standing up now, we also show far-right politicians here at home that we Europe and Europeans will stand up for democracy, wherever it’s threatened.
People around the world are rising up to stand in solidarity with American voters. Together, we can be part of a global movement to remind all leaders, wherever they are, that people’s votes and voices are their power.
