The creation 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.

"The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing."

Martin Luther King (1929-1968)
