Liberation, one of the oldest UK 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 1970 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.
