GENERAL ASSEMBLY PROPOSAL
ID: alchemic_queendom_1398077385

Banned Books Week

A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
 

Category: Education and Creativity

Area of Effect: Free Press

Proposed by: Alchemic Queendom

Description: The World Assembly,

Reaffirming its extant commitments to freedom of expression, freedom of the press, and freedom of reading and learning,

Believing that censorship constitutes not only a violation of the rights of the author, but also acts to deprive the world of its common intellectual bounty,

Wishing to promote civil defiance of censorship so as to stimulate intellectual progress and call into question repressive policies,

Hoping that the resources available to the World Assembly can be used to further this goal,

Has determined:

  1. For the purpose of interpreting their obligations under this resolution, nations shall extend the common definition of “books” to include all written media, and may at their discretion further include visual arts or other media, and shall consider “banned books” to be those that have been partially or wholly censored, not for plagiarism or academic fraud, nor for the depiction without educational, scientific or artistic merit of child sexual abuse, nor for infringement of intellectual property law, nor for violation of individual privacy rights, nor for revelation of officially classified material, but for political, cultural or moral dissent, while accepting that individual nations may at their discretion adopt a more expansive interpretation.

  2. The World Assembly and its constituent member nations will celebrate an annual Banned Books Week. While nations are encouraged to hold their own events concurrent with the World Assembly event, they may at their discretion move the timing of their own week to avoid conflict with other national holidays or celebrations.

  3. During the course of the Banned Book Week, the reading and discussion of banned books will be especially encouraged. The World Assembly will convene discussion panels on censorship, invite authors of banned books to present their work, and distribute available public domain versions of banned books. Individual nations must at minimum permit organization of such otherwise legal activities, and are also encouraged to engage in exchanges with other nations.

  4. The Universal Library will host an online archive of all available banned books in the public domain, and may further host with the copyright holder's permission banned books not in the public domain, except where the author of that work has expressly requested that the work not be hosted, or where the ULC Executive Committee has determined that hosting the work would pose a risk of persecution to the author. Individual nations are further required to permit access to the Universal Library Banned Books Archive, and are encouraged to establish their own similar exhibitions and archives.

A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region.
 

Category: Condemnation

Nominee: Sauvania

Proposed by: Malhakhistan

Description: Description: The Security Council,

DETESTING the military tactics carried out by Sauvania, which rank as some the most uniquely caustic in modern military campaigns, including the prolific and notorious use of ALPHA nerve agent, a chemical designed specifically by the nations of Sauvania to kill indiscriminately,

NOTING that Sauvania has declared at least nine wars in the last six months alone on regions and nations further destabilizing a world already in turmoil,

FURTHER NOTING that Sauvania has become a region rooted in the conquest of others as evidenced by their repeated attempts to conquer United Nations in Solidarity, a region founded from Sauvanian refugees,

DISMAYED at the proliferation of torture, pillaging, conflagration, use of chemical weapons on civilian populations and indiscriminate malice,

CONDEMNING the numerous amounts of holocaustic, militaristic, operations undertaken and led by Sauvania, estimates of which climb conservatively into the hundreds,

APPALLED by Sauvania's involvement in the genocide of all foreign nationals within their borders when in times of war, strife or discord,

OPPOSED to the destructive virulence that Sauvania practices, and the acts of human right violations in which Sauvania routinely engages in the name of victory,

WORRIED AND CERTAIN that Sauvania is a legitimate threat to world wide peace and stability,

HEREBY CONDEMNS Sauvania
