The Campaign Against Censorship grew out of the Defence of Literature and the Arts Society, which is why its domain name is DLAS
rather than CAC - as it is known. It used to have an overlapping membership with NCROPA, which had been dormant for many years. With the death of NCROPA
founder David Webb
, its Legal Consultant Edward A.C. Goodman took over as Acting Director. It is hoped that NCROPA will be incorporated into the CAC next year.
The latest CAC newsletter contains a belated obituary for David Webb and one for Basil Stein
, who had been a Committee Member of CAC.
The CAC is far from the only anti-censorship organisation in the UK; a number of others can be found on its website's links page
, including Feminists Against Censorship
, which is concerned primarily with sexual censorship.
Back issues of CAC's admittedly infrequent newsletter and a number of other documents can be found on a dedicated downloads page
. It has been proposed that next year an archive of selected correspondence from its inception will be added to the website.
