WA Office | Repeal "Wartime Journalism Protection Act"


The repeal currently at vote aims to remove the resolution Wartime Journalism Protection Act. Although the target does have a beneficial effect by ensuring that journalists are allowed to report on events in wartime, thus upholding the right to freedom of information, there are flaws in the resolution text that render it unable to fully achieve these aims.

The repeal correctly identifies these flaws. For example, the target resolution rendered it impossible for news-reporters to carry weapons for self-defence, posing a significant safety hazard. The clauses of the repeal that highlight the situations in which a member state may unjustly stop journalists from reporting on an event shows how the target resolution does not protect freedom of information to the extent that it ought to do so.

A repeal is justified if the rights first advanced in the target resolution are to be upheld in a more consistent and firm manner. The continuing presence of the original resolution would block future legislation, not affected by these flaws, that would more effectively promote freedom of the press. Because of this, we feel that a vote for the target repeal is justified.

Why was I tagged?!

Current policy emerged from the poll conducted here, which showed a majority supporting telegrams disseminating these messages to all residents. Internally, however, the Office compromised between telegrams which many in the region might find spammy, due to the default limitations of telegram mailboxes and oft-ignored RMB messages.

The above tags were generated automatically by InfoEurope.

You can opt out of tagging by sending a telegram to the Office's WA Secretary or the Undersecretary for Communications. Current staffing information is located in the "STAFF" tab at the top of this page.
