1/12/10 – Heritage – Paris, Serres d’Auteil – A significant voice has been added to the list of those opposed to the Roland-Garros extension at the Serres d’Auteil. Nicolas Hulot has written a letter to Bertrand Delanoë expressing his concern for the project. This will no doubt arouse greater awareness for the cause among the general public.
The tone of the letter is courteous but firm. He is surprised, he concludes, by the fact that Parisian elected officials who had signed a chart in November 2003 concerning the Bois de Vincennes and the Bois de Boulogne in which they promised not to cut into these properties, now seem to be breaking their word. He reminds the mayor that the Serres d’Auteil are part of the Bois de Boulogne. We are anxious to hear what the mayor’s response will be as he will no doubt try to “reassure” Nicolas Hulot, just as he did in the case of Françoise Hardy (see article).

Addendum of 2 december 2010 : As predicted, Bertran Delanoë answered Nicolas Hulot’s letter, definitely proving he considers people little more than fools. With one or two changes, his statement repeats the same arguments and sentences he wrote to Françoise Hardy a few days earlier. We therefore refer our readers to our analysis of the letter in the article mentioned above, in order to rebut the mayor’s allegations once again.
