Welcome to the website of the Campaign Against Censorship

The CAC opposes censorship and promotes freedom of expression in the United Kingdom.


The Defence of Literature and the Arts Society was founded in 1968 to assist writers, artists, and others threatened by censorship, and to campaign for reform of censorship laws.


In 1983 the DLAS was re-launched as the CAC with the object of promoting freedom of expression in all its forms and combating restrictions on that freedom and its exercise.


We believe that the repressive dangers of censorship for adults outweigh any possible benefits, and that what is acceptable for adults to read, see, or hear should be decided by personal judgement and taste, not by the law.
