CAP Liberté de Conscience was created 20 years ago to defend religious and spiritual minorities against the French government which has set up a system, unique in Europe, of surveillance and repression against minorities:
- Creation of an interministerial mission, now part of the Ministry of the Interior,
- funding of associations whose function is to stigmatize minorities through stereotypes and the spread of rumors,
- training of magistrates in the fight against sects provided by the interministerial mission and certain members of anti-sect associations,
- the establishment of a section of the Gendarmerie, the CAIMADES (Cult Police) dedicated to the surveillance of minorities.
The law on freedom of access to administrative documents has enabled us to collect unique documentation on "anti-sect" associations such as UNADFI and its branches, the CCMM and its branches, FECRIS, CAFFES, official bodies such as MIVILUDES or the National School of Magistracy.
Today, this documentation is accessible to as many people as possible through this site, which will be regularly updated.
You will also find a section of interventions by NGOs denouncing France's policy towards minorities with European and international bodies.
What is « Coordination des Associations et des Particuliers pour la Liberté de Conscience » (CAP Freedom of Conscience)?
