Finance bill: One Voice is stepping up to the plate to defend their right to inform on cruelty to animals

Mis à jour le 22 December 2022

One Voice has noted three amendments that have been passed (n°I-CF16, n°I-CF98, and n°I-CF607, photo below) today by the Finance Committee on the Finance Bill, and which aim to remove fiscal advantages agreed with associations whose activists were guilty of intruding on agricultural and industrial sites.

Amendment by MP Marc Le Fur adopted by the Finance Committee on October 5, 2022

The association, who is a whistle-blower or relays information from whistle-blowers on numerous subjects linked to irregularities and omissions, mistreatment or acts of cruelty to animals by breeders, circus artists, etc., can only condemn this attempt to put the associations in a difficult position, when they actually defend compliance with the laws in place against cover-ups. We will not allow the law to be so skewed in favour of these anti-animal and anti-nature lobbies due to pressure groups in favour of private interests being listened to by the Ministry for Agriculture.

One Voice is a revolutionary and non-violent association. Its methods, particularly investigations, allow them to show what is hidden by people who are breaking the law. And the images that they legally produce have allowed numerous victories in favour of animals.

For example, the investigation on the ten tigers kept by a circus trainer having led to their rescue in December 2020, or those in mink farms, for which the images allowed parliamentarians to decide to ban fur farms in France at the end of November 2021. But also our investigations within animal breeding farms (birds, deer, wild boars) serving as game for hunters.

One Voice is therefore calling on all MPs and especially those who want to defend animals, the right to inform, and the right for civil disobedience, to reject these amendments during the plenary session.

Que chacun prenne sa responsabilité face à son choix politique : tous ces acteurs et complices du malheur animal (et humain) sont les représentants de votre opinion et que fait-on pour s’opposer à leurs dérives et/ou intérêts ? Une collaboration tacite qui nous condamne directement et qui nous voit de plus en plus manipulés, rendus sourds, aveugles et muets.

Lamentable, scandaleux, comme ceux qui votent ce type d’arrangement, en clair ceux qui tiennent les rênes de notre « foutu » pays !
