PARIS, May 12 (AFP) - An opponent of the EU's new constitution dropped his trousers in the French parliament Thursday to reveal the word "non" written over his buttocks.  

The man jumped down from the public gallery in the National Assembly during a session of questions to ministers, and succeeded in briefly exposing himself before being overcome by staff.  

He left behind a note condemning the "excesses of the referendum campaign" and apologising for "this brutal interruption into your parliamentary work." He signed himself Olivier Kimmel.  

France votes on May 29 in a referendum on the EU constitution, with polls showing the two sides evenly divided.
