The following are proposals for WA resolutions. Any WA member nation with at least two endorsements can make a proposal, but it will only become a resolution (to be voted on by the entire WA) if it is approved by at least 6% of WA Regional Delegates.

As the WA currently has 1,166 Regional Delegates, a proposal needs 70 approvals to achieve quorum.

Repeal "On Genetically Modified Foods"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#158

Proposed by: Schutzenphalia and West Ruhntuhnkuhnland

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #158: On Genetically Modified Foods (Category: Free Trade; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The World Assembly,

Deeply concerned that the definition of “genetically modified foods” used in Resolution #158 on the subject is technically flawed,

Sagely recognising that limiting definition of genetically modified foods to those involving the “introduction of foreign DNA or synthetic genes” does not take account of:

  • The transplantation of material from same or similar species (cisgenesis);

  • Genetic modification without the introduction of new material, rather through the manipulation of the existing material, such as gene knockout;

  • The use of recombinant RNA instead of DNA as a vector;

Strongly believing that any legislation intended to require labelling of all genetically modified foods should employ due scientific rigour in its definitions,

Further considering the scope of the requirements to label any food crossing international borders to be excessive, given that it would necessitate the labelling of food waste not intended for consumption, food products posing no risk of transgenic contamination, and small quantities intended for personal consumption rather than resale;

Severely doubting that given these flaws these requirements are useful, justified, or in the best interests of member nations,

Remaining fully confident in the ongoing enforcement of Resolutions #64, which requires labelling of food products to meet safety and quality standards, and #249, which prohibits harmful genetic modification technologies,

World Assembly Resolution #158, “On Genetically Modified Foods”, is hereby repealed.
