GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION AT VOTE
Repeal "Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Proposed by: Imperium Anglorum
Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #380: Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: The General Assembly,
Confident that humanitarian aid has already been expanded by passing such resolutions as 340 GA "Access to Humanitarian Aid" and 51 GA "Humanitarian Aid Coordination";
Concerned about a number of issues with the resolution that cause unintended consequences, most of which were not picked up due to the premature submission and passage of the target resolution;
Conceding that repeal is the only option, as it is impossible to amend legislation and patch these issues;
Worried about the incredible costs associated with:
Troubled by the possibility of using this resolution to bypass quarantine regulations, since the resolution fails to provide any clauses allowing nations to prevent aid workers from entering quarantine areas; and
Flabbergasted with the requirement in 380 GA § 6(b) of rewarding nations which are unwilling to help their own citizens by wasting World Assembly funds in paying private organisations to provide 'aid' without any necessary oversight to ensure that World Assembly contributions are not wasted, squandered, or used to commit crimes against the people which this resolution would ostensibly help; hereby
Repeals 380 GA "Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act".
