General Assembly Resolution # 71
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
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.
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The Protection of Monuments is hereby repealed
