General Assembly Resolutions
Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.
Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.
General Assembly Resolution # 380
A resolution to modify universal standards of healthcare.
Area of Effect: International Aid
Proposed by: Ichu
Concerned by the disturbing rise and phenomenon of natural disasters in many areas and the lives lost as a result; yet,
Aware that natural disasters will always occur, with or without government intervention; however,
Hopeful that at the very least, more lives can be saved with increased humanitarian aid to the rising number of afflicted areas near or around natural disasters;
The World Assembly hereby:
Defines natural disaster as a serious disruption of the functioning of a community or a society, caused by naturally occurring phenomenon and involving widespread population, material, economic or environmental losses and impacts, which exceeds the ability of the affected community or society to cope using its own resources.
Further Defines "security check" as any measure(s) a host nation chooses to take to verify the identity, authenticity, and/or lack of a security threat of personnel and aid that are requested to enter the borders of the host nation in order to fulfill their duties as mandated by the International Humanitarian Aid Coordination Committee.
Highly recommends that the host nation attempt to provide efficient distribution of and easy access to any available domestic or foreign humanitarian aid with assistance from nearby member nations if the host nation is unable to support itself. All humanitarian aid originating from outside the borders of the host nation are subject to any extensive security checks imposed by the host nation in order for it to be sent to the afflicted areas.
Mandates that host nations allow any personnel working with humanitarian organizations that are involved with the relief effort to enter afflicted areas, with all personnel being subject to any extensive security checks imposed by the host nation. If the personnel pass the security checks, the host nation must provide transportation so the personnel can reach the afflicted areas, if deemed necessary.
Requires the maintaining or rebuilding, if necessary, of essential infrastructure in threatened areas, such as hospitals and distribution centers, which is necessary to provide effective disaster relief in times of crisis.
The International Humanitarian Aid Coordination Committee shall be expanded to:
Be granted authority to send out unbiased inspectors, who are appointed by the powers within the WA, to conduct inspections of the essential infrastructure and supplies stockpiles, without interference from the host nation, within threatened areas inside host nations, especially during times when a natural disaster is believed to be imminent.
Grant funds to international humanitarian organizations based in member nations which are involved in active disaster relief operations in order to ensure that the necessary resources are present.
General Assembly Resolution # 381
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #380 “Humanitarian Aid Expansion Act” (Category: Health; Area of Effect: International Aid) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
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:
forcing governments to expand their public sectors and subsidise rebuilding efforts when a nation may simply choose to move people out of harm's way via evacuation and
transportation to and fro for foreigners at the national expense;
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".
General Assembly Resolution # 382
A resolution to slash worldwide military spending.
Category: Global Disarmament
Proposed by: West Angola
The World Assembly,
DISMAYED at the damage caused to ecosystems by the introduction of invasive species,
RECOGNIZING the suffering of nations whose ecosystems are affected by these species,
FURTHER RECOGNIZING the major national security threat such species could represent,
1. DEFINES, for purposes of this resolution:
"Invasive Species" as a non-native, non-sapient species whose behavior results in extreme harm to ecosystems into which it is introduced,
"Environmental Warfare" as the intentional introduction of an invasive species into a foreign ecosystem for purposes of damaging it,
2. PROHIBITS member nations from carrying out acts of environmental warfare against other nations,
3. MANDATES member nations take reasonable action to prevent those in their nation from carrying out acts of environmental warfare abroad, and to guard against such acts within their own borders,
4. EMPOWERS the World Assembly Commission on Biological Agents to:
Ensure nations remain up-to-date on the latest information regarding identification and prevention of invasive species, and
Aid civilian populations who have been subjected to a environmental warfare attack in mitigating and reversing the effects of such.
General Assembly Resolution # 383
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Bananaistan
The General Assembly,
Recognising the right of individuals to privacy in their sexual relationships,
Resolving to uphold and protect this right from undue interference, while
Affirming that society in general has a legitimate public interest in
- preventing procreation in incestuous unions,
- restricting the exploitation of vulnerable or underage individuals, and
- enforcing fair sexual ethics in professions,
1) Defines individual sexual activity, for the purposes of this resolution, as acts undertaken individually without any external stimulus for the purposes of achieving sexual arousal of the individual,
2) Defines collective sexual activity, for the purposes of this resolution, as acts undertaken with at least one other participating individual for the purposes of achieving sexual arousal of one or more of the participants, where such acts cause no permanent physical harm to any of the participants,
3) Defines age of consent, for the purposes of this resolution, as the age at which an individual is considered to be legally responsible for actively consenting to engage in collective sexual activity,
4) Mandates that member states shall not restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise any individual sexual activity where such individual sexual activity is practised in private and away from public exposure, where it does not directly cause physical harm to any other individual,
5) Mandates that, subject to the exceptions listed in clause 6 of this resolution, member states shall not restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise any collective sexual activity between consenting individuals who have reached the age of consent where such collective sexual activity is practised in private and away from public exposure, where it does not directly cause physical harm to any non-participant,
6) a) Member states are permitted to establish in law prohibited degrees of consanguinity and may restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise sexual activity between individuals falling within a prohibited degree of consanguinity but only to the extent that such sexual activity could result in procreation,
b) Member states are permitted to restrict, regulate, proscribe or criminalise collective sexual activity where one participant has responsibility for or authority over another participant,
c) Member states are permitted to allow the exercise of disciplinary power by organisations on members and employees who engage in sexual activity with individuals for whom they are directly professionally responsible or otherwise directly exercise authority over,
7) Mandates that, for the purposes of clause 5, member states set a biologically appropriate age of consent which gives due regard to the typical age at which the physical and emotional development of individuals in their society provides them with the capabilities of granting genuine, informed consent to participation in sexual activities, and further mandates that there shall be no reference to the gender status or the sexual orientation of the participating individuals nor shall collective sexual activities be subcategorised in age of consent laws,
8) Clarifies that this resolution does not require the legalisation of any materials or artefacts which may be used for the purposes of individual or collective sexual activities, however urges member states to legalise such materials or artefacts where it would not cause harm to non-participating individuals and is otherwise permitted by international law.
General Assembly Resolution # 384
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #347 “Foreign Patent Recognition” (Category: Free Trade; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Recognizing the utility of patents to many member states;
Encouraging well-reasoned legislation on the issue of patent rights and intellectual property;
Noting that GA #347 provides insufficient framework to prevent private entities and states from filing patents to block technological and scientific development in other nations, even if they have no interest in the technologies they patent;
Regretting that the target resolution allows patent holders to severely restrict use and availability of vital pharmaceutical products, thereby extending the suffering of citizens in many member nations who cannot afford to purchase exclusively patented medicines;
Noticing that GA #347 leaves many less advanced member states and their inhabitants to suffer the loss of their intellectual rights to more advanced member states and their inhabitants;
Concerned that, in order to enforce their patents abroad, patent holders must divulge the specifications of their technology, even if said technology's secrecy is a matter of crucial security;
Unconvinced that the ten-year minimum for foreign patent recognition set in clause four (4) is anything but an arbitrarily set number, with no absolutely consideration for the varying value of time on different member nations;
Aware that the concept of a patent is foreign to many member states' economic philosophies or ideologies, and may run entirely contrary to those of several member states;
Worried that GA #347 effectively forces nations without a patent system to adopt one, without recognizing the effects patents may have on their economic model or their ideological rights;
Disappointed that this resolution seeks to impose national law beyond its jurisdiction into other nations, compelling nations to recognize the legal power of patent agreements made in foreign nations;
Ultimately convinced that GAR #347 needlessly reduces economic freedoms and limits property rights;
The World Assembly hereby repeals General Assembly Resolution #347, "Foreign Patent Recognition".
