General Assembly Resolution # 343
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #303 “Debris Prevention” (Category: Environmental; Industry Affected: Manufacturing) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Acknowledging the aim of Resolution #303 to seek to reduce the amount of debris in orbit;
Concerned and distressed that Resolution #303 has the following stand-alone, flagrant flaws:
I. The lack of a definition for 'debris' despite debris being the chief subject, a fundamental flaw which delinquent nations could and very likely have been exploiting in order to circumvent this resolution.
II. The clause "CLARIFIES that this resolution will not impede or restrict the rights of nations to do battle in space..." is problematic in that space battles naturally result in a massive amount of debris being released into orbit, yet this resolution is silent on how to prevent, reduce, or even minimize this cause of debris.
III. This resolution has done nothing to provide for the cleaning up or reduction of debris existing in orbit either both before or after its implementation.
IV. A small minority of this assembly are space-faring nations, and therefore legislation on this matter would be better instituted by nations that share the same technological capabilities.
Asserting that Resolution #303 is ineffective, insufficient, and inadequate, and that these flaws have undermined the effectiveness of this probably well-intentioned resolution;
Hereby repeals "General Assembly Resolution #303, Debris Prevention"
