General Assembly Resolution # 214
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #207 “Intangible Cultural Heritage” (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Cultural Heritage) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The General Assembly,
ACKNOWLEDGES the importance of protecting and preserving cultural customs and practices;
BELIEVES that specific forms of intangible cultural heritage, while not strictly harmful to national populations, should be reasonably restricted in the interests of public morality, the rights of others, economics and development, national security, or other compelling reasons;
HIGHLIGHTS that the resolution in questions prevents member nations from compelling their citizens to obey pre-existing laws if such laws contradict any form of culture, regardless of the more important concerns outlined above, so long as such "culture" doesn't cause damage to society as a whole;
OUTRAGED that such a resolution may prevent further international legislation on topics such as animal cruelty and abuse, or others practices that may be considered barbaric, but are included in the definition of "intangible culture;"
CONCLUDES that such a resolution, while meritorious in its intent, causes much more harm than good;
REPEALS General Assembly Resolution #207 "Intangible Cultural Heritage.
