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 # 136
A resolution to restrict civil freedoms in the interest of moral decency.
DEFINING wartime as a period of conflict between two armed entities,
DEFINING desecration as the act of defiling, profaning, or otherwise mutilating and causing undue trauma,
DEFINING the field of battle as the location at which an armed conflict resulting in casulties has occurred or is occurring,
NOTING that in wartime situations there are casualties and deaths,
FURTHER NOTING that emotions may run high in wartime situations, resulting in unbecoming behavior,
CONCERNED that the bodies of deceased combatants and civilians may be desecrated in acts of rage, violence, or malice,
AWARE that the bodies of the deceased should be treated with respect,
COGNIZANT of the impact that the desecration of a body can have on the family, friends, and relations of the deceased,
The World Assembly hereby
DEMANDS that states take appropriate measures to prevent the desecration of deceased civilians, military personnel, and any others who may fall on the field of battle,
CONDEMNS those who partake in such acts, as well as those governments that support said activity,
STRONGLY SUGGESTS that nations make provisions for the proper burial or other post-death rituals, depending on the culture of the nation or of the deceased in question, whenever possible,
RECOMMENDS that appropriate measures be taken to ensure the repatriation of the deceased to their nation of origin, whenever possible,
PROHIBITS the needless dismembering of deceased combatants on the field of battle
General Assembly Resolution # 137
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #135 “Universal Standard Time Act” (Category: Free Trade; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
NOTING that nations have been able to measure time independently of one another,
NOTING that the World Assembly has functioned sufficiently well in the absence of a "universal" system of time,
FURTHER NOTING that international commerce is not directly enhanced by an externally imposed clock,
CONCERNED that the physical nature of the universe precludes a single, externally imposed system of measuring the passage of time,
FINDING that many nations have means of timekeeping that are more precise than those described therein,
DETERMINED that an externally imposed "universal" system of time does nothing to benefit international trade or diplomacy,
DECLARES that "Universal Standard Time Act" be stricken from international law.
General Assembly Resolution # 138
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #115 “Space Research Station Program” (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Educational) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The General Assembly,
RE-ACKNOWLEDGING that many nations are not able to reach outer space, either due to financial or technological restraints,
BELIEVING that all nations who desire to reach outer space should be able to do so,
NOTING the wide margin with which "Space Research Station Program" passed,
BUT FINDING several flaws with said resolution, including that:
1. It only creates one space station to fit the needs of over 12,000 World Assembly member-states spread over several star systems,
2. It requires that the WASRS rely solely on the donations of nations, corporations, and individuals, but does not require said nations, corporations, and individuals to donate anything at all, calling into question the ability of the space station to fund itself,
3. The WASRS, due to both the rules of the World Assembly and the wording of the resolution that created it, cannot defend itself from attack, in a current situation where some space-faring WA members have openly declared their hostility to the WASRS, or from space objects which pose a threat to the WASRS,
4. There is no specified purpose for the space station, meaning that the only actual effect of it at this point is the creation of purposeless bureaucracy,
5. Nations have no obligation to participate, and those that do choose to participate have no obligation to participate in a responsible manner, leaving the way open for more subtle opponents of the WASRS to sabotage or damage the station from the inside, needlessly endangering the lives of some of the WA's best scientists,
6. There is no provision or set-aside funding for either replacing, repairing, or even maintaing the WASRS in the case of attack, internal sabotage, and normal space wear,
BELIEVING that the problems with the resolution far outweigh its potential benefits,
NOTING that many nations have managed to reach outer space without the WA's help, and that several others have no desire to reach outer space at the present time,
The General Assembly hereby repeals Resolution #115, "Space Research Station Program".
General Assembly Resolution # 139
A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.
The World Assembly,
ACKNOWLEDGING that a predominant role of this body is to promote and protect the general welfare of the citizens of its member nations;
REALIZING that in many instances citizens of WA member nations are sustaining injury, illness, or even death directly related to unsafe consumer products;
RECOGNIZING the need for a regulatory body charged with maintaining international safety standards of said consumer products;
DEFINES a consumer product as any article, or component thereof, produced or distributed for a consumer to purchase, i.e. toys, automobiles, household chemicals, electronics etc.; however, exempts any article not customarily intended for use, enjoyment, or consumption by a consumer.
DEFINES an unsafe consumer product as any consumer product that can pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure a consumer while used properly and according to age / training / safety requirements;
PROHIBITS the import to and export from WA member nations of consumer products that qualify as unsafe consumer products according to the terms of this legislation;
STRONGLY URGES member nations to prohibit manufacturers and distributors from producing and/or distributing unsafe consumer products;
STRONGLY URGES member nations to impose financial penalties on manufacturers and/or distributors guilty of producing and/or distributing unsafe consumer products;
ESTABLISHES a Consumer Product Safety Council, hereafter CPSC, to maintain international consumer product safety standards;
CHARGES the CPSC with the investigation of consumer products on an international scale in order to identify unsafe consumer products and prevent their import to and export from WA member nations;
FURTHER CHARGES the CPSC with assisting citizens of WA member nations seeking financial compensation, legal recourse, or product recall associated with unsafe consumer products;
URGES individual WA member nations to provide funds, where applicable, to facilitate CPSC organizational efforts;
CONCLUDES that a CPSC will promote a higher level of consumer safety on an international level, leading to a decline in injuries and deaths associated with consumer products.
General Assembly Resolution # 140
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
The General Assembly,
1. All persons with a mental illness or who are being treated as such persons have the right to:
Voluntary residency in a mental health facility in addition to psychiatric treatment, counselling and rehabilitation by mental heath professionals that are held to the same high standards as all other fields of practiced medicine;
Not be subject to exploitation for economic, sexual or other gains (e.g., human exhibitions, prostitution);
Not be subject to degrading treatment and physical, mental or any other form of abuse;
At-least robust allowances for visitation with their offspring unless said persons' present behavior suggests that their presence is a danger to their children as determined by domestic courts;
Be employable -- dependent upon their ability to perform said work without their mental illness establishing a new threat to the safety and wellbeing of themselves or others as determined by domestic courts;
Freedom of communication, which includes freedom to send and receive uncensored private communications with anyone outside or inside in a mental health facility with respect to domestic court restraining orders (i.e., "no contact" provisions), and inalienable access to communicational services (postal and telephone) and newspapers, radio, television and other forms of media;
2. No patient shall be subject to medication or punishment that is not in their best medical interests or lacks a therapeutic or diagnostic purpose (e.g., as a method of punishment, for the convenience of staff, misuses of seclusion or electroconvulsive therapy, lobotomization, embarrassment via group therapy);
3. Robust periods for visitation between friends, family and other persons and the patients of a mental health facility should be available unless (1) the patient requests without coercion that they not receive visits from any given person, (2) restraining orders have been established by domestic courts against visitation between the patient and certain prospective visitors, upon said situations, mental health facilities should provide the necessary security to fulfill these request/orders;
4. Mental health facilities shall offer a pleasant environment and living conditions for at least its residents in addition to making a wealth of recreational, educational and leisure activities and an efficient complaint system available to residents;
5. No perceived threat to the social, political or cultural values of the majority (e.g., sexual orientation, unconventional gender roles or political ideology), or the suppression of dissent shall ever be the justification for a patients admittance to a mental health facility;
6. That nothing of this resolution shall be misconstrued as prohibiting the practice of involuntary admission to a mental health facility;
7. Member-nations (1) shall not relocate patients or mental health facilities elsewhere to circumvent this resolution, (2) shall consider further legislation on the details of admission to mental health facilities, and (3) are urged to consider any grievous deviation from this resolution by any nation as reasonable grounds for diplomatic intervention or condemnation-- not because said nation has simply 'failed to comply' with this resolution, but because of the mass social grievances that result from such deviation.
