  [AT VOTE] Repeal "Commend Imperium Anglorum"
Posted by: TempestShadow - 6 hours ago - Forum: Security Council Proposals - Replies (4)

Acknowledging that Imperium Anglorum (herein “I.A.”) has well contributed to the world, as outlined by SCR#223, specifically heading Europe’s World Assembly (herein “WA”) Delegacy and the authorship of near thirty WA resolutions;

Calling into question, in fact, the very sincerity of I.A.’s WA operations, which, though lauded by SCR#223, have of late caused mass controversy and disharmony among member nations of this WA;

Disappointed that I.A. outwardly uses its reputation and power amongst the international community to further its own interests;

Noting that, for example, I.A., along with a collective of other WA Delegates, consciously instigates and perpetuates the lemming effect during WA votes; that is, dishonourably dumping a large number of votes at the onset of the ballot, creating a majority for member nations to align with;

Appalled that I.A. would seek to undermine both the democratic process and fellow authors in such a deceptive fashion;

Convinced I.A. adopts an air of superiority when dealing with nations it does not consider to be worth its time;

Frustrated that some of I.A.’s more recent General Assembly resolutions are, put simply, seemingly incomprehensible to the vast majority of member nations;

Furthermore, alarmed that SCR#223 would falsify the import of the legislation I.A. repealed to mislead this WA:

•    GAR#329 did not “[permit] national sub-groups to disregard and neglect nationwide laws”;
•    GAR#350 did not “[stop] the World Assembly from passing any laws;” and
•    GAR#396 did not “[slow] down the Internet;”

Hereby repeals SCR#223 “Commend Imperium Anglorum.”

  [PASSED] Preventing Groundwater Contamination
Posted by: TempestShadow - 01-15-2019, 05:50 PM - Forum: General Assembly Proposals - No Replies

Category: Environmental
Industry Affected: All Businesses - Mild
Proposed by: [Image: wallenburg__5000t2.png]Wallenburg
Celebrating past efforts to raise awareness of the importance of water resource conservation and protection, and to implement policies to reduce overuse and contamination of naturally occurring water resources,
Concerned that few of these efforts have addressed groundwater sources in any manner, even though underground aquifers provide the majority of water used and consumed in member states,
Noting that transboundary aquifers are very common, and the management and protection of their resources inherently represents an international issue,
Recognizing that nearly all member nations depend on aquifers for the purposes of agriculture, industry, and domestic consumption, and that a risk to the potability or usability of these essential water resources presents a risk to the prosperity and survival of countless inhabitants of member states,
Understanding that while many aquifers may be less prone to contamination than surface water sources, few technologies exist to resolve groundwater contamination after its effects become deleterious, and many shallow, consolidated, unconfined, or overexerted aquifers do not sufficiently benefit from the filtration effects of surrounding soils to prevent contamination,
Resolving to reduce contamination of vulnerable aquifers by saltwater and artificial pollutants, including pathogens, nitrates, phosphates, toxic and nuclear wastes, and artificial herbicides and pesticides,
The World Assembly hereby:
 

  1. Tasks the International Bureau of Water Safety with researching and consolidating information on the size, distribution, and characteristics of groundwater resources, and issuing recommendations for the protection and conservation of these resources for reliable, long-term use,
     
  2. Requires member states to plan future land use so that agricultural, industrial, and transportation pollutants will not present any measurable threat to the utility and potability of aquifers,
     
  3. Mandates the implementation of regulations to protect groundwater resources near or interacting with sinkholes and cenotes on agricultural developments, including but not limited to:
     
    [list=lower-latin]
  4. The growth or construction of a physical barrier around the mouth of the sinkhole or cenote, at a distance from the edge appropriate for the conditions of the sinkhole site, in order to minimize the accumulation of pollutants within the sinkhole or cenote,
     
  5. Diversion of all surface runoff around or away from the sinkhole or cenote,
     
  6. Cessation of application of fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides in the vicinity of the sinkhole or cenote,
     
  7. Restriction of all activity within the enclosed area of the sinkhole or cenote to scientific and recreational activities individually reviewed by a jurisdictional authority, determined to present no measurable threat to any groundwater system, and carried out by individuals possessing permits to perform those activities,
 
[*]Mandates protection of wildlife within all naturally occurring underground drainage systems, and recommends communication with the WA Endangered Species Committee for specific means by which to preserve the ecosystems contained within,
 
[*]Recommends that development of urban or industrial infrastructure upon evaporite formations, especially carbonates, in cases where acidic dissolution has resulted in extensive underground drainage systems, be limited as much as possible, and requires member states to institute additional limitations on industrial and agricultural activity to further prevent contamination of these particularly vulnerable aquifers,
 
[*]Requires all wells constructed over unconfined aquifers to undergo regular inspections for contamination of the groundwater below, and prohibits the use or disposal of potential contaminants in or nearby the opening of any such well,
 
[*]Requires member states to limit extraction from each aquifer to a maximum of the rate at which each aquifer is projected to saturate, and urges member states to further limit extraction from aquifers bordering saltwater fronts, so that the pressure of the fresh

  [PASSED] Commend Paffnia
Posted by: TempestShadow - 01-15-2019, 05:48 PM - Forum: Security Council Proposals - No Replies

Author: Kuriko

The Security Council,

Observing that commendations are Security Council resolutions authored to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of nations that contribute in many ways to their home regions and the international community;

Recognizing the fact that the nation of Paffnia, having been formed 8 years ago, has contributed in immense ways to 10000 Islands (XKI) through many government positions as well as the international community as a member of the Ten Thousand Islands Treaty Organization (TITO);

Listing the contributions of the nation Paffnia to the inter-regional community as follows:

• Being a member of the defender military TITO, where they have served with distinction for over seven years and completed almost 350 missions. In this capacity they have risen to the rank of TITO Knight Legion Commander and been decorated with many medals, including the 10000 Islands Distinguished Service Medal for distinguished leadership to TITO and the Islands, the Order of the Islands Medal for excellent service or actions to the region and its community, the Commendation Medal which is awarded for exemplary services that have raised the quality of life within XKI as a whole, and the Meritorious Service Medal for individual excellence in an operation and ongoing good conduct abroad.

• Taking part in many high-stakes deployments to Feeders and Sinkers to combat coups against lawful regional governments, for which they were awarded medals to commemorate their participation. These medals include the Osiris Defense Medal for deployment to the newly created Sinker in 2011 which allowed a native regional government to arise, the The South Pacific Liberation Medal for deployment to the Feeder region during the Milograd coup of 2013 where over 3,000 native nations were purged from the region, and the Lazarus Liberation Medal for deployment to the Sinker region during the New Lazarene Order coup of 2015.

• Taking part in 11 refound operations to make founderless regions safe once more without the threat of being raided, some of which are well-known operations. These operations include the refounding of The Skeleton Army, Deutschland, Australia, Hogwarts, and Greece.

• The upkeeping of a record of featured regions of NationStates since 2011 within The Great Library of the 10000 Islands. The scholars of Paffnia strive to keep this list as up-to-date as possible as well as keeping track of other notable accomplishments of 10000 Islands and its inhabitants internationally.

• The authoring of SC Resolution #93: Commend The Featured Region Followers, thanking the region for steadfast commitment to preserving and honoring featured regions World Factbook Entries.

Further Listing the contributions of the nation Paffnia to the region of XKI as follows:

• An 8 month term elected as Senator for Lyonnesse East between 2011 and 2012, where Paffnia sat on the Council of 9 (Co9) and was in charge of guiding the national royal families from each nation. In this capacity they spearheaded the establishment of the House Cup and Shield Competitions as well as founded and still maintains the XKI Family Tree.

• A 4 month term elected as Senator for New Republica South during 2014, where Paffnia was in charge of keeping the international political parties of the region on track and functioning. In this capacity they began political party games and competitions to keep the political parties active.

• Two terms as Senior Senator, where Paffnia was in charge of writing and publishing the Council Report to the community on discussions within the regional government and votes that took place.

• An 8 month term appointed as Minister of Labor during 2015, a permanent seat upon the Co9, where Paffnia was in charge of hiring government officials and keeping various regional government ministries functioning by regularly posting regional government openings. Paffnia also currently occupies the same position since February 2017, where they have argued for government transparency and written a bill compromised upon by separate factions to make that transparency come to happen.

• A 6 month term elected as World Assembly Delegate and head of Foreign Affairs for XKI between 2015 and 2016, where Paffnia started the trend of using region-wide dispatches to gain the opinion of World Assembly members which every delegate afterwards has followed.

• Holding the position of Registrar General from March 2018 to the present, where they have nobly performed their duty to record and release the votes and laws passed by the Co9 within the regional Law Archives.

Believing that with all of the accomplishments of the nation Paffnia both at home in XKI and abroad, they are deserving of recognition by the Security Council of the World Assembly;

Hereby Commends Paffnia.

  Resolution to Empower the Regional Guard against NPO Affiliates (January 2019)
Posted by: McChimp - 01-11-2019, 03:34 PM - Forum: Active Laws - No Replies

Quote:
Resolution to Empower the Regional Guard against NPO Affiliates (January 2019)

Proposed by: Cormac

Whereas the Assembly of Lazarus, at the Delegate's request and pursuant to Article I, Section 5 of the Twelfth Mandate of Lazarus, declared war upon the New Pacific Order (NPO) on December 16, 2018;

Whereas Section 2(4) of the Charter of the Lazarene Regional Guard (December 2018) authorizes the Assembly to "enact a resolution empowering the Regional Guard to invade a region that is the ally or protectorate of a region upon which Lazarus has declared war" by two-thirds vote;

Whereas the region St Abbaddon is a formal protectorate of the NPO, established as such by a treaty signed by former Emperor Aleisyr of the NPO, former Consul Pergamon of the NPO, and Delegate Kitsco of St Abbaddon on May 31, 2017, which remains in effect;

Whereas the region Communist Americas is a protectorate of the NPO, established as such by military force against fascist occupying forces, which has been used by the NPO to spread their insidious Francoist propaganda rather than promotion of an appropriate anti-fascist message;

Whereas the region Azhukali was founded by Milozoldyck, also known as Milograd, a former Senator of the NPO who has maintained loyalty to the NPO for years, and who resigned citizenship in Lazarus at the onset of recent hostilities between Lazarus and the NPO in favor of participation in the NPO;

Whereas Milozoldyck/Milograd has a history of subversive activity in Lazarus on behalf or in what he perceived to be the interests of the NPO, including participation as a Senator in the 2015 New Lazarene Order (NLO) coup of Lazarus;

Whereas, at the time of this resolution's writing, the Delegacy of Azhukali was held by Feux, former Regent of the NPO, who as Delegate of Lazarus engaged in improper purges of Lazarene citizens in 2013 and who as Regent of the NPO established the NPO's support for the NLO in 2015;

Whereas Feux infiltrated Lazarus from 2016-2018 under the pseudonym Adytus, continuing to engage in subversive activity, eventually with the full knowledge of former Emperor Aleisyr and former Consul Pergamon, without disclosure of this identity to Lazarene officials;

Whereas evidence has emerged that Milozoldyck/Milograd, Feux, and some of their associates intended to use Azhukali as a front to continue the same kind of subversive activities against Feeders and Sinkers, potentially including Lazarus, that they engaged in while in the NPO; and

Whereas Milozoldyck/Milograd has once again been declared delete-on-sight, leaving Azhukali founderless and vulnerable to invasion; therefore, let it be

Resolved that the Assembly of Lazarus acknowledges St Abbaddon as a de jure protectorate of the NPO;

Resolved that the Assembly of Lazarus acknowledges Communist Americas as a de facto protectorate of the NPO;

Resolved that the Assembly of Lazarus acknowledges Azhukali as a de facto ally of the NPO;

Resolved that the Assembly of Lazarus hereby empowers the Lazarene Regional Guard to invade St Abbaddon, Communist Americas, and Azhukali, or to participate in another region's or organization's invasions of said regions;

Resolved that it is the non-binding sense of the Assembly of Lazarus that responsible native governance, free of the NPO's imperialist influence, should be restored to St Abbaddon as soon as practical following invasion;

Resolved that it is the non-binding sense of the Assembly of Lazarus that St Abbaddon, one of the few remaining historical founderless regions, should under no circumstances be refounded by the Regional Guard or invading forces supported by the Regional Guard;

Resolved that it is the non-binding sense of the Assembly of Lazarus that an appropriate anti-fascist message should replace the NPO's Francoist propaganda on the World Factbook Entry of Communist Americas as soon as practical following invasion; and further

Resolved that it is the non-binding sense of the Assembly of Lazarus that the historical roleplaying significance of Azhukali should be respected, and that native participation in the region, without the corrupting influence of Feux and his associates, should be permitted as soon as practical following invasion.
