No more persecuting animals during lockdown!


Mis à jour le 12 February 2021

Just after we went back into lockdown numerous prefectoral decrees began to be published. One Voice is making urgent applications to get around twenty of them suspended in the departments concerned in order to save as many animals as possible.

The day after the second lockdown began the Ministry of Ecology authorised many prefectures to grant the wish of organised groups of hunters to continue their massacres in forests, whilst those same forests are out of bounds to those who wish to exercise in the fresh air and amongst nature, to families and even to individuals picking mushrooms. Apparently the health regulations don't bother them. Nor does the fate of their neighbours and friends.

But the "regulated hunting" mentioned, in contrast to "leisure hunting", has no meaning in French law: only the latter exists. It is only thanks to the ceaseless work of animal activists and to public support that it can be stopped.

In fact the decrees we are challenging are problematic because as usual the arguments put forward by the hunters and reiterated by the prefectures, in particular the "damage" said to be caused by animals, are fallacious and totally questionable.

We are applying for the decrees to be set aside and for hunting to be suspended in the following departments. The hearing dates will be added as soon as we hear from the various administrative courts (AC).

La chasse est une tuerie. Il faut arrêter de tuer tous les animaux des bois. C'est une hécatombe. Ça suffit !

Je vous soutiens profondément One Voice et serais avec vous en pensées profondes ces jours cités afin de dénoncer de telles dérogations honteuses en faveur des chasseurs dans le seul et unique but de pouvoir assouvir à leurs guises leur soif avide de tuer. C'est scandaleux durant un confinement où il est demandé à tous les français de sortir et se déplacer le moins possible, de pouvoir marcher qu'une heure alors que les chasseurs qui ne sont que des monstres ont le droit de se promener en toute tranquillité autant qu'ils le veulent pour tuer ! C'est ahurissant ! Les combats contre la chasse doivent continuer confinement ou pas, je suis très triste pour tous mes frères les animaux des forêts, des montagnes et fière de ne jamais les avoir mangé, vu mon statut de végétarienne de naissance et végane depuis. J'espère de tout mon coeur que vous gagnerez tous ces procès pour que justice soit faite pour les animaux et que de telles dérogations ne soient plus jamais admises pour des tortionnaires.
