General Assembly Resolution At Vote
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #30 “Freedom of Expression” (Category: Furtherment of Democracy; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Resolving that it is profoundly immoral to permit corporations and legal persons to lie to consumers,
Believing that society as a whole can have justifiable reasons to restrict expression for public safety and to prevent the consumption or publication of materials that would damage public health, social order, or needless antagonisation,
Seeing that society should have the ability to regulate adverts and their means of distribution, eg prohibiting tobacco advertisements from being shown on childrens' television channels or placing limits on where or what can be depicted in such advertising, and
Confident that there will be a scrambling of legislative efforts to replace this resolution with more appropriate legislation that permits society to protect itself, hereby:
Repeals GA c 30 "Freedom of Expression".
Debate this resolution in the General Assembly forum.
The General Assembly resolution Preventing Desertification was passed 11,231 votes to 6,925, and implemented in all WA member nations.
Proposals are suggestions for resolutions. Any WA member nation with at least two endorsements may make a proposal, which, if it gains the necessary support, will become a resolution.
