World Assembly Resolutions

Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.

Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 42

* REPEALED *

Condemn Kalasparata

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

Category: Condemnation

Nominee: Kalasparata

Proposed by: The cyrupean wa office

Description: The Security Council,

RECOGNIZING Kalasparata as a threat to the safety and stability of the world,

NOTING that Kalasparata routinely subjects its population to needless cruelties to even minor infractions of the law and its routine abuse of the citizens of fellow nations,

HORRIFIED of the few punishments that Kalasparata has revealed to the international public which include but is not limited to

• Punishing citizens for crimes such as driving while under the influence by wounding the offender with a firearm, performing surgery on the criminal without the usage of anesthetics, offering them little time to heal with no pain relievers and little to no antibiotics before putting them in the equivalent of a work camp. Criminals that do not perform duties to the expectation of camp wardens have their necessary limbs amputated and are forced to continue aforementioned duties

• Paying motorists to drive their vehicles over criminals the Kalasparatan government deems unfit to continue living

• Forcing prisoners to consume feces and drink urine or leave prisoners in conditions that otherwise force them to commit such acts out of survival

• Sending prisoners to a so-called 'Danger Island' which contains numerous biological and natural hazards, leaving the prisoners for upwards of three days

• Stapling mouths of prisoners shut so that they are effectively silenced, repeated acid and or fire burns and branding prisoners with molten magnesium, often resulting in the loss of aforementioned prisoner's arms or legs

• 'On the spot' penalties such as removing a criminal's hands and forcing them to buy the victim a new car for spilling paint. Criminals that cannot pay are forced to work in a factory for just meager wages

APPALLED by the nation of Kalasparata's blatant abuse of children by torturing children for often mild infractions of school policy, especially in cases of fighting where weaponry is used. Such torture in Kalasparata results in the death of the subject in adult cases, much less in child cases,

ACKNOWLEDGING the nation of Kalasparata as a threat to both its people and the international community around it because

• Repeated and unnecessary abuse of tourists and travelers by forcing their vehicles to stop well outside of their territorial waters and force passengers to wait unreasonable times for clearance, even if they were never intending to stop in Kalasparata

• Abducting citizens of nations who happened to be involved with one of Kalasparata's numerous forced vehicle checks if they are part of a blacklist

• Taking vehicles deemed to be unsafe by the Kalasparatan Transport Authority forcefully, ejecting the passengers of aforementioned vehicles and then taking the passengers and crew to an unspecified area

• Repeated usage of antimatter in portions upwards of 500 kilograms against the vehicles that violate their travel restrictions, endangering not only themselves but large portions of the world on a near daily basis

• Numerous documented cases of the nation of Kalasparata selling off humans, perhaps those taken by the black list authority for both food and medical testing

CONCLUDING that Kalasparata is a threat deemed necessary of a condemnation because of its reckless disregard of human life, unnecessary usage of weapons of mass destruction and clearly needless hostility towards its international neighbors,

Hereby Condemns Kalasparata.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 128

On Abortion

A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
 

Category: Human Rights

Strength: Mild

Proposed by: Charlotte Ryberg

Description: The World Assembly,

ASSERTING that it is the duty to protect the health of living persons;

ACCEPTING the controversy surrounding the legality of abortion;

NEVERTHELESS CONVINCED that it is inappropriate for member states to deny abortion to any pregnant female who are at risk of death if their pregnancy is not terminated;

Therefore:

1. REQUIRES member countries to legalise abortion for cases where:
a) The pregnancy resulted from involuntary sexual activity and/or sexual activity in which at least one of the parties could not legally give consent;
b) Severe foetal abnormality would result in a child being born with an incurable condition which is fatal and/or painful;
c) There is a risk of a life-threatening physical or mental condition which would result in the death or life-long severe disability of the pregnant woman if the pregnancy continued;

2. FURTHER REQUIRES member countries to ensure that abortion facilities are easily available to patients seeking abortion in circumstances under Section 1;

3. MANDATES that such abortions may only be carried out with the informed consent of the patient without coercion: if the patient is incapacitated and unable to make their wishes known, the patient's legal next-of-kin may make the decision on their behalf;

4. FURTHER MANDATES that physicians who carry out abortions must be trained to the same accepted medical standards that all surgeons are held to, and that abortions are carried out in a way that is as painless as possible while preserving the mother's physical health;

5. DECLARES that no physician may be compelled to perform abortion against their moral stance;

6. DECLARES that it is neither a criminal offence nor a cause for civil suit to have obtained abortion for reasons under Section 1 and no inhabitant of a member country shall be subject to prosecution for having done so, nor otherwise subjected to harassment or persecution in law or at the instigation of the state in consequence;

7. INSISTS that all member nations retain the ability to legalize abortion for purposes not covered under the preceding clauses either unilaterally within their own jurisdiction or collectively through World Assembly resolution.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 129

Repeal "Conscientious Objector Act"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#127

Proposed by: Diogenes epicurius

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #127: Conscientious Objector Act (Category: Human Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: RECOGNIZING that there are many religious, philosophical and ethical systems that forbid violence.

UNDERSTANDING that many individuals who object to violence are at risk for punishment from their government and fellow citizens for failing to perform in military duties.

RECOGNIZING that the rights of these individuals should be protected.

PRAISING the attention that GA Resolution #127 has brought to this issue.

CONCERNED that under the current language of the "Conscientious Objector Act," active military personnel may falsely develop "objections" when faced with performing as prescribed in a legal contract which includes combat duties.

CONCERNED that such an act creates a dangerous precedent in countries in adherence to international law of soldiers signing up for combat positions and then being able to break their contract when called upon to do their duty.

CONCERNED that such efforts could cripple nations of the World Assembly if they engage in combat with a state not in adherence to international law.

CONCERNED that such precedent threatens all contracts made with a government by proxy.

RESOLVES that General Assembly Resolution #127, "Conscientious Objector Act" should be repealed immediately.

REQUESTS that should the "Conscientious Objector Act" be repealed all member nations should do their utmost to abide by the rest of the motion until a better worded act may be presented to this Assembly.

The World Assembly hereby enacts the following:

Sec. 2. The OEA shall assist creating electoral systems in transitioning nations when called upon by those nations for that purpose.

Sec. 3. As an advisory body, the OEA shall not have any binding authority on creating electoral systems, but shall strive to promote democratic principles, including universal suffrage and voting accessibility.
