What happens to one can happen to another. Mazo’s been threatened by different groups for different reasons, but it always comes down to nudity. Bad behavior is occasionally a problem and provides ammunition to those that would shoo us away, but is not the core issue. Nudity is, and those that can’t abide it will accept nothing short of the total elimination of our lifestyle.

So when push comes to shove, they have the numbers and we get shoved. But sometimes we hold firm and resist and that’s what Friends of Mazo Beach is all about. Standing up for us, protecting our rights as a minority, attending boring meetings and trying to connect with sympathetic public officials that they can work with. Together with TNS they’ve been successful in keeping the Beach open for everyone.
And they don’t get paid for it, so feel free to contribute to the cause to help cover expenses.
