CAAN’s Main focus at the moment is on generating awareness of the ludicrous nature of the extreme porn law, taking action about the creation of the porn ban in Scotland, and where possible raising awareness of the appalling effect on individual livelihoods that the Vetting Law could have, if enacted literally. We are also getting ready to show conspicuous support for anyone who is arrested for possessing pornographic images of consenting adults. Join our mailing list to keep up to date with CAAN actions and ways you can get involved, by signing our statement or getting in contact .
If you are arrested simply for possession of extreme pornography featuring consenting adults, we want to hear from you and see how we can support you. For legal support, please contact Backlash.
If you are in Scotland, please be aware that the law is different from England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We are currently seeking lawyers who are interested in advising and assisting in extreme pornography cases. We suggest that you follow Backlash’s legal advice as much as possible and seek assistance as soon as you are able.
For advice about extreme porn, see here.

We are currently contacting Unions representing workers who might be affected to see whether they are aware of this – and providing advice to individuals who fall foul of this new law. If you are involved in a Union and willing to get involved with this project, please contact us.

We will also be supporting the campaigns and actions of:
International Union of Sex Workers (IUSW) who campaign for the human, civil and labour rights of those who work in the sex industry.
Backlash have been fighting the plans to criminalise ownership of material the Home Office finds abhorrent, at this stage are preparing to support people who are arrested for owning extreme pornography.
Spanner Trust, which exists to defend the rights of sadomasochists of all sexual orientations and specifically to reverse the UK court ruling which made certain SM activities illegal even though all parties consent.
Sexual Freedom Coalition brings together all the groups campaigning for sexual freedom, to form a united force. We also campaign ourselves when we feel this is necessary, and speak out for sexual freedom at every opportunity.
