  4. Condemn Ralkovia

    Security Council issues are a bit boring, I agree. But as I said before, it's interesting that we are perceived as an interested region.
  5. Condemn Ralkovia

    I generally agree, I just want to make sure we participate as much as possible in those sections of the game. It doesn't hurt to always have our nations voting and active in the WA.
  6. Condemn Ralkovia

    Condemn Ralkovia A resolution to express shock and dismay at a nation or region. Category: Condemnation Nominee: Ralkovia Proposed by: Of the Quendi The Security Council, ACKNOWLEDGING Ralkovia as a nation that continuously throughout its history has conducted itself in a manner contradictory to the principles of interregional peace and goodwill between nations, upon which the World Assembly was founded, as well as acting in a fashion detrimental to the advancement of civic and democratic liberties for all Nations and Peoples. RECOGNIZING Ralkovia as a country that operates a system of extermination camps which conducts genocide on undesirable groups in Ralkovia through the following, and many other, measures, with the intent of creating a uniform homogenous society mindlessly devoted to the monstrous policies of Ralkovia: The systematic roundup of and deportation of all political dissidents, ethnic, religious, sexual minorities, physically or mentally disabled people and all other groups considered offensive by the Ralkovian government, hereafter collectively referred to as undesirables, to extermination camps. The elimination of all undesirables deemed unfit to work, thereby meaning children below twelve years of age, the elderly, the disabled, pregnant women and the sick, for immediate extermination upon arrival. The enslavement of all undesirables deemed fit to work, and subsequent overworking the undesirables to an early death while subjecting them to deliberate maltreatment, in the form of torture and withholding basic necessities such as food, medicine, water and so forth. The prioritized pursuit of escapees, including adopted children, conducted by Ralkovian Death Guards to prevent any return of undesirables to Ralkovian society. OBSERVING that Ralkovia has no respect for the sovereignty of foreign states, and regularly launches unjust military action against foreign states over petty issues. ABHORING the routine utilization of forced mass conscription of Ralkovian civilians by the Ralkovian Armed Force for use as cannon fodder in the numerous wars of aggression unjustly waged by Ralkovia DISGUSTED by the policies of indoctrination on the Ralkovian people to be desensitized to the cruelty of the Ralkovian government and accept the crimes of their state. NOTING that Ralkovia is an active slaver state, having enslaved 800 million people while regularly engaging in the international slave trade and subjecting its enslaved populace to inhumane sufferings and humiliations at the hand of the Ralkovian elite. FURTHER declaring Joshua Raskov II, Emperor of Ralkovia, a vile dictator suffering an antisocial personality disorder inspiring him to mindless cruelty and brutality, whose governance has as its sole purpose his own gratification through the suffering of others, since he usurped the throne from his sister, before having her raped and eventually murdered. INSISTING that such abominable acts as those committed by Ralkovia call for a strongly worded condemnation by the Security Council; Hereby Condemns The Grand Empire of Ralkovia. Authored by The Arda i Eruhini of Of the Quendi with the assistance of The Free Republic of Lamoni. Voting Ends: in 1 day Thoughts?
  7. Animal Protection Act

    Animal Protection Act A resolution to restrict civil freedoms in the interest of moral decency. Category: Moral Decency Strength: Significant Proposed by: Ilstoria URGING the WA to recognize that animals kept as property by people must be provided with protections as a moral responsibility; REALIZING the importance of animals as food, clothing and medical resources that are imported and exported internationally and would thus require an international effort to prevent cruelty; UNDERSTANDING that populations of animals sometimes require the intervention of people to prevent population growth or harm that is detrimental to the animal, environment and people, and allowing for such actions if all reasonable actions are taken to prevent unnecessary pain and suffering. LIMITS animals in this resolution to beings that possess the scientifically demonstrated ability to feel and experience pain. Animals unable to feel pain as a result of their physiology are exempt. LIMITS restrictions on interactions between people and animals in this resolution to include only all forms of domesticity, including farming and animal testing industries. Wild animals are exempt from this resolution as they are not a legal responsibility of owners. DEFINES unnecessary as able to be reasonably avoided; While some industry, such as the meat industry, or fur industry, require that an animal be killed in order to create a product, which will necessitate brief pain, it is considered unavoidable. Similarly, prolonging the death of an animal because it is more cost effective is avoidable, so long as an alternative is economically feasible for that nation. DEFINES pain and suffering as the unpleasant sensory experience associated with actual tissue damage and lasting unpleasant sensory experience as a result of prior tissue damage. Tissue damage inflicted under the supervision of a qualified veterinarian and with the use of anesthetics to reduce or eliminate pain is reasonable. DEFINES owners as any person who has purchased an animal or its descendants and/or has provided food or shelter or medical care to an animal on that person’s property for more than 31 days. PROVIDES animals with the right to safety, reasonable quality of life and freedom from torture through holding owners legally responsible by: PROHIBITING the infliction of unnecessary pain and suffering on any animal by any person either directly or remotely. ENCOURAGING that domestic animals kept outside of an individual’s living space be provided with an environment that as closely resembles its natural habitat as is possible; one example would be “free range.” REQUIRING that individuals or a group that possess legal rights under its nation’s law to an animal provide reasonable protection from harm by other animals and persons. FORBIDDING forms of entertainment that require or involve the infliction of pain or suffering on animals, ESTABLISHES the Protection of Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) that will meet annually at the WAHQ or another suitably neutral site to create and edit a list of feeling species protected under this legislation and determines whether an action is necessary or reasonable if national governments are unable to reach a decision. Voting ends in 3 days. Thoughts?

  12. The WA issues
