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.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION # 71

Repeal "Protection of monuments"

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal

Resolution: GA#69

Proposed by: Grays Harbor

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #69: Protection of monuments (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Cultural Heritage) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: APPLAUDING the ideals expressed in Protection of monuments.

UNDERSTANDING that not all nations treat historical sites with the respect they deserve.

NOTING the spelling errors, which may cause unintended confusion with implementation.

NOTING also, the numerous loopholes which allow for a nation to essentially ignore whole sections of the statue, or to abuse the protections provided by it.
REGRETTING the exclusion of personal property as a protected monument class in that the resolution does not allow for private and/or not-for-profit ownership of structures and property designated as monuments.

FURTHER REGRETTING that only a single solution is offered, that being nationalization of historical sites, museums and monuments.

APPALLED that one such consequence would be to deprive people of their homes if they fall under the historical site category.

BELIEVING that the monuments in the world deserve better protection that those afforded by this act.

DISAPPOINTED that while this resoution stands more specific and better thought out resolutions protecting a member nations monuments can not be passed.

The Protection of Monuments is hereby repealed

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 9

* REPEALED *

Liberate The Security Council

A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.
 

Category: Liberation

Nominee (region): The Security Council

Proposed by: Unibotian wasc mission

Description: We the Peoples of the Security Council,

Perceiving the short history of the Security Council so far, as an unsteady beginning -- one full of uncertainty and hesitancy;

Recalling the World Assembly, and at least one historical institution before that, whose beginnings were equally as unsteady;

Aware of the difference between the Security Council and these successful establishments lies not in their ideals, but their organization;

Determining that a higher degree of self-determination, and freedom is thus necessary for a successful establishment;

Whereas the World Assembly Security Council is disregarded as an international malingerer, a distraction from the imperative directives of the General Assembly;

Distressed to hear of potential authors of Security Council Resolutions who have decided not to pursue issues of international security out of fear, and intimidation from naysayers who have been attached to the Security Council not out of preference, but because of its association with the General Assembly -- which is not unlike the relationship of a child to its older brother;

Concerned that such a fraternal shadow may cast darkness over some pressing issues in our world;

Hereby, in the name of dedication to the dissemination of inter-regional peace and goodwill, liberates the Security Council.

ENCOURAGES member states to:
a) Make historical artifacts accessible to the public where possible

c) Pass on knowledge of the history and the functions of historical artifacts to all interested parties.

SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION # 11

Liberate Democratia

A resolution to strike down Delegate-imposed barriers to free entry in a region.
 

Category: Liberation

Nominee (region): Democratia

Proposed by: Jedi-gangsters

Description: The region of Democratia was a sovereign region home to a vibrant community. On September 1, 2009, The Axis of Evil successfully invaded Democratia. The invader Delegate, Smetistan, proceeded to password-protect Democratia, and rid the region of the remaining native population. The destruction of a region like Democratia is a travesty and we must do whatever we can to right this wrong.

With a secret password in place, it is impossible for the natives of Democratia to reclaim their region, dooming the region to a slow death. While there might be hesitation to interfere in the internal affairs of a region, World Assembly intervention is the only course of action left that will allow the rightful inhabitants of Democratia to reclaim their home.

Therefore, the World Assembly hereby lifts the password on the region of Democratia, and forbids said region from being password-protected.
