Fundraising News: Anti-racism group in call for funds as it faces cash crisis

An anti-racist campaigning organisation set up half a century ago to support the independence of British colonies is seeking support from trusts and individuals as it tries to overcome a financial crisis.

Liberation general secretary, Maggie Bowden, said: "We are updating our constitution and developing a fundraising strategy, but with an ageing membership we need financial support to help us to get through our difficulties."

Liberation helped to found the Anti-Apartheid Movement and Chile Solidarity Campaign. The organisation now works through the United Nations and Parliament to support the human rights of oppressed minorities and those affected by conflict in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

"We recently organised meetings in Parliament for the Congolese community, who have suffered from war and persecution as asylum seekers, and we set up a cross-party group on the Sudan conflict," said Bowden.
