General Assembly Resolution # 166
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #162 “On Humanitarian Aid” (Category: Civil Rights; Strength: Significant) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
ACKNOWLEDGING that humanitarian aid is an important international issue and that the World Assembly strives to promote and protect humanitarian aid missions,
RECOGNIZING the importance of providing protection to humanitarian aid workers within conflict areas,
DISMAYED that "On Humanitarian Aid" does not reflect the realities of humanitarian aid missions and the volatile conflicts in which they are undertaken,
DISAPPOINTED that "On Humanitarian Aid" revokes legal protection from any humanitarian aid worker who engages in self-defense against militants, which is a policy that will fundamentally harm the viability of humanitarian aid missions in the future,
WORRIED that "On Humanitarian Aid" does not sufficiently address the concept of "neutral zones" and that the arbitrary declaration of neutral zones may destabilize a conflict or risk the lives humanitarian aid workers,
DETERMINED to prevent the harm of humanitarian aid workers and promote the success of humanitarian aid missions through a more effective and appropriate resolution,
The World Assembly hereby repeals "On Humanitarian Aid."
