Naturists Campaigning for Naturism

Notices

Meet Up With NAG

John Paine and Harvey Allen, two members of NAG’s Management Team will be at Spielplatz, near St Albans, Herts on Saturday, 23 May 2015 from noon. They will be able to give you an update on all of our projects but specifically the Hampstead Heath Naturism Project.

If you haven’t been to Spielplatz before, you can learn more about the club by visiting their website or calling 01923 672126. The normal day visitor fee is £15, but if you are a member of Shabden Leisure Circle then there is 33% discount, you can’t be fairer than that? Other local groups will also be in attendance, in addition to Spielplatz’s own members, so you might see something you’d like to join.

You can read more information about the event in our leaflet, which includes directions for getting to Spielplatz.

Housekeeping

I have carried out a little bit of housekeeping and for anyone wishing to look again at the results of John and Pete’s Fact Finding Mission to Munich will now be able to find it under its own page under the Downloads tab. If you come across a legal case involving a naturist, you can still send a report in to us about that, by downloading MS Word template under Leaflets and Templates, and of course our public policies are also available from the appropriate page. That leaves everything in its proper place and the original Downloads page empty.

You and the Law Leaflet

It has been brought to our attention that following changes to statute law, our You and the Law leaflet needed updating. We are currently working on a new version and will let everyone know when it is available. In the meantime, the previous version has now been taken down as users can no longer rely on the information it contained. If you have a ‘stock’ of these, please destroy and recycle.

Photo Comp 2015

It’s here. The Competition you’ve been waiting for. Like our first competition in 2013, the theme of the second is Living Naturism, expressed however the photographer wishes as long as it complies with the common understanding of the definition of naturism. Entry costs just £6 (Sterling) for three pictures. But if you’d like to add extra pictures that can be done for £2.50 per picture.  Full details are available on the page: Photo Comp 2015.

All monies raised will be used for the advancement of naturism in the United Kingdom. Please share with all your naturist contacts.

Good luck everyone.

A message from George Davis and Gypsy Taub

We have been asked to share the latest information from the campaign led by Gypsy Taub and George Davis to obtain a fairer deal for naturists in San Francisco.

Dear body freedom supporters,

One top First Amendment lawyers in the country Larry Walters has just joined our Federal case against the City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Police Department. We are very excited and very proud to have him on our team.

We Desperately Need Your Donations For Our Legal Fund. I had to pay $230 out of my pocket for the month of August and now we need to come up with $500 for September. We owe at least $13,000 but our generous lawyers are letting us pay $500 per month.

PLEASE PAYPAL DONATIONS to gypsytaub@gmail.com or email for more info if you want to donate but don’t use PayPal.

George and I were just asked to resubmit our disclosures for our case. We need names of people who attended our protests and other nude actions as well as names of people who interviewed us and documented our body freedom activism. If you are one of those people (especially if you witnessed us getting arrested or cited) please email me back with your full legal name, phone number, address and email contact. We need as many people as we can get to make our case stronger. We also need names of people who were at the Naked Sword filming, World Naked Bike Ride and other events where nude people were present but not cited.

We are going to be holding the Malaysia Nude Beach Games on Baker Beach, San Francisco. Noon, Saturday, October 4, 2014. We will have athletic contests like running races, javelin throw, wrestling (Sumo and Greco-Roman), volleyball, human wheelbarrow race, and other contests. We will have a body-decorating contest with body paint, dollar store accessories, and beach extras like kelp and seaweed. In the Malaysian games they had swimming contests (not practical at Baker Beach – cold water, currents, and sometimes waves) and something called “crabwalk races”. If we can figure what a “crabwalk race” is, we’ll include it. We are still open for other events to include.

In May 2014, about 18 people held a Nude Sports Games privately on a beach in a National Park in Malaysia. Most of the participants were from Malaysia with a couple from the Philippines and Albert Lam from Singapore. All the participants were Asian. Albert Lam posted a video of the games on the Internet. During the month of August 2014, the Malaysian police sought the arrest of all the participants and offered rewards for the identities of the participants. Several were arrested and held for a few days. (“Perp” photos made for shame.) The event attendees were threatened with 5-year prison sentences. As of August 29, 2014, five were sentenced for 30 days and a fine. The videographer got six months for “distribution and possession of pornographic material”. This story was reported widely in the Asian regional press and Internet search engines, hence, the idea to call the games in San Francisco, the Malaysian Nude Beach Games. We will keep the name until such time as the Games can be held again in Malaysia without police harassment. Let’s have some fun and make an international statement against the police state harassment of nudists. As long as we exercise it, we have this freedom.

Gypsy, Rich Pasco, Rusty Mills and Nomad are helping with the spreading the word. Even if you cannot attend, please distribute this information to your social network.
