Welcome to the Campaign Against Censorship website
The CAC is the successor to the Defence of Literature and the Arts Society - hence our web address - that 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.
