For your freedom. And ours.
CAAN is a growing grass-roots network of individuals and organisations fighting for the freedom of adults to view, or engage in consensual activities in private. We want to reclaim our human rights to privacy and self expression and to be allowed a lifestyle, or sexuality of our own choosing. We want you to join in and do things, because that’s what a network is. We need to put our energies and skills together to turn the tide of puritanical laws which create harmless criminals and victimless crimes.
Campaigning against extreme and unjust laws
Under the present government, a growing number of laws have been passed that criminalise ordinary people for their sexual choices. The best known example of this is the extreme porn ban which since 26th January 2009 affects England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
But the Government has also been instrumental in:
- criminalising the possession of images depicting perfectly legal sexual activity;
- putting in place a “Committee of Public Safety” whose job it will be to vet nearly half the workforce – and remove them from their jobs if they possess any porn that is “sexual and violent in nature”
- proposing to make it a criminal offence for an adult to pay for sex.
More new laws are being created! Please see our campaigns page for more information.
CAAN needs YOU!
We’re creating many ways to join in so that everyone who wants to get involved can do so, either behind the scenes, or out and in public. All consenting adults are welcome in CAAN, we aim to include people of all orientations, social or cultural groupings and genders, and we can also provide our information in alternative formats on request.
