European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso gestures during a news conference in Brussels June 1, 2005, after the 'No' in the referendum in The Netherlands on the European Union's first constitution. Dutch voters soundly rejected the European Union constitution in a referendum on June 1, early results showed, deepening a crisis in the 25-nation bloc and possibly dooming the treaty after France rejected it too.
