of One Voice
Placed under the patronage
of Professor Théodore Monod, a member of the Institute
and vegetarian for 65 years, One Voice is a French animal rights
organisation that was founded in 1998 (under the name Talis) through
the fusion of existing animal welfare structures. One Voice campaigns
so that the rights of animals to respect, freedom and life will
be understood and recognised by all.
The leading French organisation defending the rights of animals
used for fur or in laboratory tests, One Voice also campaigns
to protect circus animals, farm animals and pets. By winning media
coverage, it teaches the public that the future of animals is
intimately linked to that of Nature and humankind. We must learn
to respect one and all.
One Voice is an independent organisation with no political or
religious affiliations. It has over 20,000 members, and publishes
a quarterly magazine, Animaction. One Voice specialises in targeted
long-term campaigns, informing the public of the suffering that
millions of animals must endure each day and that those who profit
from such suffering would rather keep secret. One Voice educates
children and puts pressure on decision-makers, in particular government
authorities, to introduce legislation to protect animals.
One Voice is at your service. Each day we answer dozens of questions
on animal rights, guide voluntary groups and local authorities
in their actions and inform consumers so they can be sure they
are buying cruelty-free products.

people to do nothing."
