About Us


Liberation, one of the oldest human rights organisations,
was founded in 1954 as the Movement for Colonial Freedom.
For more than half a century it has campaigned, along side other anti-imperialist forces, to rid the world of colonialism.
In 1958 its name was changed to Liberation, an organisation that today opposes neo-colonialism, economic exploitation and racism.

At Liberation we undertake research and action centred on the prevention and curtailment of human rights violations,
across a broad spectrum of countries.

As an international and inter-connecting organisation, Liberation engages in advocacy work, supporting and standing in solidarity with other like-minded organisations. Liberation provides a space and framework to highlight
and discuss issues of concern with the United Nations, the British Parliament, the International Labour Organisation and Trade Unions.
