article imageWhat is the Campaign Against Censorship?

By Alexander Baron     Nov 27, 2013 in Politics
The Campaign Against Censorship is a small but dedicated opponent of all forms of censorship in the UK. Its latest newsletter is out now.
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.
