But, I don’t even want to defend myself, that doesn’t interest me anymore, it’s not a question of recognizing, I don’t even have the strength anymore. I don’t want to defend myself. In any case, the words of the people questioned today are, in fact, distorted and suspect. “

“What good is it? How much weight is my word going to have in today’s context? And how do you want me to remember? I remember mostly what I’ve never done. I’ve never in my life forced into it. anything, whoever. Never, neither close nor by force. like this since the dawn of time “ adds the distraught ecologist.

The journalist then explains to him that some alleged victims speak of trauma and Nicolas Hulot then answers: “I’m not going to tell you, I’m not going to counterattack that they’re all liars, stuff like that. I don’t know. What I know is that I haven’t. never done. But when you’re innocent like I am, innocent in a way you can’t even imagine. You’re trapped anyway, no matter what you say, speech is suspect. . There you are. We cannot defend ourselves. We cannot defend ourselves. Because in this legitimate, necessary struggle of women, the word of women is sacred, and there you have it “.
