Resolution At Vote

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION AT VOTE

Repeal "Cultural Heritage Protection"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
 

Category: Repeal
Resolution: GA#72
Proposed by: The Dourian Embassy

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #72: Cultural Heritage Protection (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Cultural Heritage) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
Argument: The World Assembly,

Understanding that culturally significant sites are important cornerstones to many societies,

Regretting, however, that Cultural Heritage Protection(GA#72) fails to perform its function without placing an undue burden on WA nations,

Knowing that GA#72 "DEFINES a cultural heritage site as a [sic] area of interest, archeological, historical, or cultural to any member nation within its own jurdisticion [sic]" regardless of that site's current use,

Lamenting that any site, even those of incredibly minor "archeological, historical, or cultural" importance, may be designated as protected at the whim of the nation housing such a site,

Accepting that, regardless of its cultural importance, a site used to house military weapons, soldiers, prisoners of war, or used as a base for espionage should be a valid target for military attack or liberation,

Bemoaning that, while cultural sites are often housed in or near population centers, GA#72 may encourage the use of cultural sites to house military assets because of the protections it provides,

Believing that GA#72 was never intended to provide protection for military assets,

Regretting that this error has been left uncorrected despite open acknowledgement by nations involved in writing the resolution,

Hereby repeals Cultural Heritage Protection(GA#72).

 

Voting Ends: in 2 days 23 hours

As author, I will spare you a long drawn out speech about how awesome my repeal is. There are two important points. The issues raised in the repeal are legitimate. A nation may designate any site as culturally significant, other nations may not attack those sites, and there are no limitations on the use of those sites as military bases or staging points.

 

The second point is that there is a replacement in the works by one of my colleagues.

 

The replacement is here, if you'd like to contribute to that draft.

 

Officially, I am of the opinion that The West Pacific should vote for this repeal.
