O Natural: Opinion, by Sieglinde Ivo

To celebrate  the World Naturist Week, our affiliate Club "CNC - Clube Naturista do Centro", issued a special edition of  their magazine "O Natural".

For this edition they sent an invitation to the President of INF via Portuguese Federation office. 

This article contain a great opinion to all of us, and we will seed this magazine edition to all federations as suggested by Sieglinde.

We challenge all Portuguese affiliate Associations and Clubs  to follow this idea and work together with the Portuguese Federation and International Federation to seed all information and explanation about our life style and philosophy. 

Opinion, by Sieglinde Ivo

"O Natural" will be released as a special edition and furthermore I am pleased to congratulate youfor this step. 
Especially naturists, as we are, cannot do enough advertising for our movement through printing magazines or via Internet. Although there circulate many publications, we have to explain our way of life in order to border ourselves from negative statements. 
We live in harmony with nature, protect it and just feel free, easy and good without any clothes. Of course we accept other people´s opinion, but we would like to emphasise, that we also wish to get accepted without any prejudice.

Portugal is a beautiful country and has got many opportunities with its long magical beaches to use it for naturists. Compared to other European countries Portugal has much more days of sun and therefore it is beneficial to develop and support naturism in this region.
Through a publication it is a further step in this direction in order to use and keep the freedom for naturists unconditionally.

As a symbol I hand over this bunch of flowers and I wish you all the best for your campaign and I surely forward your magazine to all federations.

With best regards
Sieglinde Ivo
INF-FNI President
