We are a campaign group set up last year to challenge government plans to make it a criminal offence to view, buy or own images that it believes are "abhorrent". The government says the penalty may be a three year sentence and you will be added to the Sexual Offenders Register for looking at pictures even the government admits don't turn people to crime.

It will be a criminal offence to own (on your hard drive) images whether real or realistic depictions of necrophilia, rape, bestiality or a loosely defined "sexual violence". This could cover horror films, S&M pictures or even stills from music videos and you may find it is illegal to own a film, even though it is legal to sell it.

To find out more and to learn how you can help challenge these proposals, check out our site: Backlash UK.
