Etienne Chouard est un homme doux, parfaitement en colère. Poil à gratter de la pensée unique, il agace, perturbe, fait réfléchir. Et en attendant, il bosse. C'est le marathon man des salles des fêtes, l'égérie des résistants, le citoyen d'or d'Agoravox. Calomnié, encensé, il ne laisse pas indifférent. C'est probablement qu'il a quelque chose à dire.

Enseignant l'économie et le droit, à l'occasion du Référendum de 2005, Etienne se plonge dans les textes du projet de Constitution Européenne. Ce qu'il découvre le change à jamais. Depuis, loin des organisations partisanes, il dénonce notre apathie et veut redonner au mot démocratie sa véritable signification. Son credo : une constitution écrite par les citoyens et des représentants tirés au sort.

In 2005, before the European referundum, while teaching economics and law, Etienne Chouard looked closely to the draft version of the European Constitution. What he discovered changed him forever. He woke up, policatilly. Since then, and independently from any political organizations, he warns us against our apathy, denounces our responsibility and wants to restore the true meaning of democracy. His motto : a Constitution written by citizens and representatives selected by sortition.
