World Assembly Resolutions
Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.
Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.
General Assembly Resolution # 541
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #530 “Fairness in Collective Bargaining” (Category: Regulation; Area of Effect: Labour Rights) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Affirming that the protection of workers rights to unionise and collectively bargain is an admirable goal,
Understanding that some member nations may wish to balance unions rights with those of employers,
Concerned by the definition of interference in clause 1, as it only prevents employers from attempting to gain control of labour unions and fails to provide any meaningful protections for the creation or operation of unions,
Noting that the term 'labour union' is not used consistently throughout the target, and that GAR#530 instead utilises various surrogate terms that unscrupulous employers and governments could effectively argue are different types of organisations, and that the protections over one type of organisation do not apply when their own organisation is considered to be another,
Disappointed by GAR#530's use of easily-exploitable language, which creates loopholes in the following sections:
4c, which prohibits labour unions from requiring excessive dues without defining what excessive would mean in this context, allowing anti-union governments to define any monetary amount or percentage of income as 'excessive',
4d, which prohibits labour unions from influencing employers to pay for unneeded workers, stifling the efficacy of labour unions to intervene when employers seek to underpay or cut workers' hours, at will, any time an employer states the worker was 'unneeded',
Believing that GAR#530 does more through its language choices to harm the rights of workers than protect them,
Optimistic that a replacement proposal better suited to protecting labour unions and providing for fair negotiations will soon be passed,
Hereby repeals GAR#530, Fairness in Collective Bargaining.

Security Council Resolution # 346
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Security Council Resolution #344 “Liberate The Embassy” shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The Security Council,
Understanding that The Embassy has been secured from hostile forces,
Believing that this Council should allow the nation in the region the ability to establish barriers of entry to prevent future invasions,
Acknowledging that The Embassy must reimpose said barriers so as to remain protected,
Hereby Repeals SCR# 344 "Liberate The Embassy".

General Assembly Resolution # 542
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.
Category: Civil Rights
Proposed by: Crowheim
Commending previous efforts passed in these hallowed halls which advanced the civil rights of those who do not identify as heterosexual or cisgender,
Recognizing that there is still much work to be done in the securing of equality and justice for members of the LGBTQ+ community, as the previously passed resolutions could only cover so much ground,
Noting one of the most egregious offenses against these rights which is still in existence: the Gay Panic Defense, often used by aggressors of assault and murder to justify their actions due to their perception of one's sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity, an argument which would have the finder of fact in the relevant courtroom believe that one's sex, sexual orientation or gender identity makes it acceptable to commit a violent crime against them,
Realizing that this justification rarely if ever is actually accurate to the circumstances of an assault or murder, and that when it is, the argument is rooted in bigotry, homophobia and transphobia which should not be logic accepted or utilized by a jury or judge in any court of law,
This legislature enacts the following:
The perception, whether true or not, of a person's sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity may not be used as a defence to a criminal offence, excuse or justification of criminal conduct, or evidence for mitigating a criminal offence's severity in sentencing.
The use of force against another individual is not justified by the mere discovery, knowledge, or disclosure of that individual's sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

Security Council Resolution # 347
A resolution to recognize outstanding contribution by a nation or region.
The Security Council,
Recognising the selflessness of Roavin as a resolute protector and public servant to regions across the NationStates community,
Celebrating Roavins contributions to the just and noble cause of defending during their service as First Warden of the defender region The Order of the Grey Wardens, where over the course of a year they:
Tripled membership of the Wardens, ensuring more regions were able to be protected,
Led the creation of the Guardian program, empowering less active defending nations to contribute to operations through focusing on detag and piling, providing a basis for future success,
Created an advanced registry of nations in regions which could be mobilized in the event a defence was required,
Applauding Roavins work as a mentor for well known and respected defenders including the current WA Secretary-General and commended nation Kuriko, as well as Nakari, Merlin, Aumeltopia, Phoenix, Omega, and Pyrohy,
Astounded by Roavins sheer determination to protect innocent regions completing well over 1600 defenses and liberations, most notably:
Leading a liberating force of 49 nations against an occupation of Japan in 2017,
Liberating the Philippines just in time to save the Christmas holidays,
Besting an active raiding force of 25 nations to help defend Portugal,
Acknowledging Roavins strategic and technological abilities, which have enabled thousands of defensive victories in raided regions, including but not limited to:
Developing a technique in 2017 that allowed greater accuracy whilst defending regions, in spite of usual limitations such as size or proximity to large regions that would otherwise make some regions hard to defend,
Establishing strategies to ensure that the endorsements of a large liberating force are placed in an accurate and timely manner,
Training organisations in the attrition run technique to dislodge raiders with large influence levels,
The creation of the Hunter Prime Operations Technology in 2016; increasing organisation and operational security for defender communication channels,
Impressed by Roavins significant contributions to The South Pacific (TSP) over several years in a variety of areas which have made TSP more secure; including:
Serving as the Prime Minister of the region for five terms, where they emphasized Cabinet forum discussions over instant communication media, improving record keeping and quality of discussion, introduced initiatives aimed at increasing transparency and addressed communication issues between the Ministry of Regional Affairs and the Assembly,
Serving as interim Minister of Foreign Affairs for TSP during an attempted coup of The East Pacific, coordinating TSPs response which included mobilizing TSPs military and their citizens militia as well as disseminating progress updates to TSP citizens,
Authoring Commend Tsunamy, a Security Council Resolution that recognised a nation for their contributions to the stability of TSP,
Being notably involved in improvements to TSPs legislation through collaboration in creating premises, writing legislation, or lobbying for the passage of legislation such as:
Comprehensive judicial reform to simplify the judicial system, eliminate loopholes, and transform the court into a non-adversarial system,
Rewriting the transparency laws to ensure it applies to the Court as well as the Executive, requiring thorough documentation, and permitting auditing,
Empowering the Council of Regional Security to utilize border control,
Creating the Legislator Committee which streamlined the bureaucratic system in which new representatives are acclimated to the legislature.
Noting that the Curious Observations made by Roavin on the state of Lazarus in July 2017 were right, and that they exposed corruption and subterfuge within the region,
Extolling the dedicated service of Roavin in the noble struggle to prevent the advance of the Nazi/Fascist menace, as evidenced by them:
Uniting multiple major regions with varying ideologies to fight Nazis/Fascists through founding the organization Ruining Nazi Sandcastles,
Supporting liberating the regions The Red States and The Empire of Lights from Nazi/Fascist control through serving as a border control officer and planning the operations,
Providing logistics support in the Union Of The Fascist Nations operation, a region just short of 700 Fascist nations at its peak,
Coordinating, planning, strategising the raids against Nazi Imperialist Japan and Elite Region Of Global Command, and securing the demise of these hateful regions,
Believing Roavins contributions have made an immense positive impact on the international community, hereby,
