The Common Dispatch of Natural Rights
See Dispatch:
The Common Dispatch of Natural Rights (CDNR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Dispatch was proclaimed by the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in Pine Tree City on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages.

United Nations (UN) Animal Fur Protection Act of 2072
Proposer: Zambet Fata
Co-Proposers: Lapod

See Dispatch:

United Nations (UN) Animal Fur Protection Act
A resolution regarding the use and production of animal furs.

Co-signed by Lapod

This act:

  1. Defines "animal furs" as a type of hair which covers some part, if not all, of an animal's skin.

  2. Defines "fur farming" as the practice of breeding or raising certain types of animals for the production and/or sale of their fur.

  3. Notes that a difference exists between fur farming and shear farming, as fur farming requires the complete animal pelt to be removed, whereas shear farming simply requires existing hair to be shaved off.

  4. Notes that in order to collect animal pelt, the animal must be killed first.

  5. Is Concerned that the vast majority of fur farms do not provide adequate shelter, food, heating, etc. for their livestock.

  6. Notes that animals deemed "unuseful" are often killed rather than be taken care of or handed over to shelters.

  7. Is Concerned that fur farms often do not cater to their animals inherent natural instincts; see Ex. 1.

  8. Acknowledges that although fur farming makes up a large portion of the economy in some locations, these locations often have lax laws, leading to all the aforementioned issues becoming much worse.

Ex. 1 most fur farms have foxes packed together in barns, with some having upwards of 50 foxes per barn. Foxes, however, are mostly solitary/small pack animals, so being crammed in with over 10 more animals within an enclosed area can cause the fox great distress.
AS SUCH:

  1. Declares that fur farms can be rendered redundant by the use and production of synthetic fur.

  2. Declares that the primary animals used in fur farms; foxes, minks, chinchillas, rabbits, and in some cases, cats and dogs, are not being cared for by the same standard as other livestock.

  3. Declares that since most of the animals used in fur farming are not domesticated, is it inherently unethical and unreasonable to assume they can be used as livestock.

  4. Acknowledges that although these animals are not domesticated, they cannot be returned to the wild for two reasons:

    1. Since these animals have been held in captivity for long periods of time, they lack sufficient knowledge to survive in the wild.

    2. The release of so many animals into the wild would greatly upset local and regional ecosystems.

HERBY:

  1. Outlaws the act of fur farming worldwide.

  2. Establishes the United Nations (UN) Commission on Fur, whose goals will be;

    1. To ensure the dismantling of fur farms worldwide by any means necessary, including and up to authorizing the use of peacekeeping forces.

    2. To aid nations/groups/people in the dismantling of fur farms.

    3. To ensure the safe transfer of captive fur farm livestock to appropriate shelters and rescue organizations.

    4. To promote the use, production, and sale of synthetic furs.

  3. Sets aside $1 billion, with future funds possible, in order to create and build up adequate shelters for rescued fur farm livestock, and to train personnel in the care of such animals.

  4. Sets aside $750 million, with future funds possible, in order to provide adequate medical care for rescued fur farm livestock.

  5. Promotes and encourages people to study wild animal care, specifically with regards to the mink, fox, and chinchilla.
