Indigenous Equality Act

A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.

Category: Social Justice

Strength: Mild

Proposed by: Jean Pierre Trudeau

Description: The World Assembly,

Acknowledging the rights of indigenous peoples within member nations and the existence of undiscovered or indigenous peoples whom contact has yet to have been made,

Recognizing indigenous peoples as communities, peoples, and nations, having a historical continuity with pre-colonial societies that developed on their territories, whom consider themselves distinct from other sectors of the societies now prevailing in those territories,

Wishing to maintain the cultural rights of indigenous peoples, as well as grant them the same basic rights and freedoms as all other citizens in the nation which they reside,

Thus resolving to enact a sensible policy that mitigates the legal differentiation between indigenous peoples and communities from those of the civilization which inhabits their native lands,

The General Assembly,

  1. Urges member nations to allow indigenous peoples to maintain their unique cultural heritage, and allow indigenous peoples to spread and share that cultural heritage with all citizens of the member nation of the nation in which those indigenous peoples inhabit,

  2. Implores member nations to cooperate with indigenous peoples in a peaceful and respectful manner, under the guidelines of the current laws of the land of the nation in which those indigenous peoples inhabit,

  3. Requires member states to provide access to representation, education, healthcare, and employment to indigenous peoples at the same level as all citizens within the member state and territories legally claimed by that member state.

  4. Permits member nations to pass laws and regulations against certain cultural practices within the bounds of current and future World Assembly statutes, on the condition those laws and regulations are applied equally to all inhabitants and cultures of the member state.

Repeal "WA General Fund"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#17

Proposed by: GraVandius

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #17: WA General Fund (Category: Furtherment of Democracy; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: Argument:This Assembly,

HAS THE OBLIGATION to fund all of it's programs created under approved resolutions.

IS CONCERNED that GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 17 would generate insufficient funds to support all the programs of the World Assembly.

THE SYSTEM of relying on the good will of member nations and private organizations to fund programs that are necessary to provide rights and justice to those who have been victims of tyranny is irresponsible.

HEREBY REPEALS Resolution #17 "WA General Fund"

Prohibiting Animal Abuse

A resolution to restrict civil freedoms in the interest of moral decency.

Category: Moral Decency

Strength: Significant

Proposed by: Losthaven

Description: The Member Nations of the World Assembly:

Recognizing that animals are sentient beings capable of experiencing stress, fear, and pain;

Convinced that there are no legitimate reasons to intentionally abuse an animal, and that animals should be cared for in ways that minimize and avoid suffering;

Resolved that animal abuse is ethically impermissible, morally unjustifiable, and rationally indefensible, and thus should be universally condemned;

Now, therefore, the General Assembly hereby enacts the following provisions, subject to the rules and laws set by earlier WA resolutions that are still in force:

1. Defines an "animal" for the purposes of this resolution as any non-sapient mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian, or fish.

2. Prohibits the intentional abuse of animals, including:

  • causing an animal serious and protracted bodily disfigurement;

  • inflicting physical trauma or intense pain on an animal;

  • recklessly abandoning an animal or otherwise placing the animal at grave risk of death, injury, or disfigurement;

  • torturing an animal;

  • sexually assaulting an animal; and

  • maliciously or cruelly killing an animal;

3. Clarifies that the following acts do not constitute abuse and therefore are not prohibited by Clause 2 of this resolution:

  • acts of good animal husbandry - including the dehorning of cattle, the docking of horses, the castration, neutering, or spaying of non-breeding animal stock, and any other act based on the science of animal breeding and care;

  • animal research that is conducted pursuant to a proper research proposal and methodology, so long as it does not needlessly inflict pain or suffering;

  • butchering or slaughtering an animal for food or other consumption, so long as the animal is killed instantly, or rendered insensible to pain until death occurs;

  • acts of veterinary medicine - including the acts of a licensed veterinarian taken in the course of caring for an animal, emergency aid provided to an animal in distress, and any other acts based on sound veterinary science;

  • hunting, fishing, or any other taking of quarry animals, so long as the methods used do not needlessly inflict pain and suffering;

  • acts of pest control, including any reasonable method of deterring, discouraging, or destroying organisms which compete directly with people, are detrimental to society, or spread malignant disease;

4. Requires that any person who keeps an animal commercially, as a pet, or for any other purpose must, to the best of their ability, provide that animal with reasonable and appropriate care, including:

  • adequate shelter sufficient to protect the animal from weather and injury;

  • food of sufficient quantity and quality to allow for normal growth and body weight;

  • access to a sufficient quantity of clean water to satisfy the animals needs;

  • veterinary care deemed necessary to relieve the animal from distress, injury, neglect or disease;

  • access to an area with adequate space for exercise necessary for the health of the animal;

  • regular maintenance of the animal's space to keep it reasonably free of debris, waste, and disease;

5. Outlaws the use of animals in fighting sports, or any other exhibition where the purpose, theme, or substance of the exhibition endangers the long term health and safety of the animal, except that animals may be utilized in potentially dangerous situations or occupations - such as law enforcement animals, guard dogs, war horses, and other services animals - so long as the animal has been properly trained and handled for use in such situations;
