Looking at the original proposal, it looks as though it defines what a forced disappearance is; Defines a Forced Disappearance as a political tactic, where a government or government sponsored entity conceals the fate, or existence of an individual or a group of individuals who were required by said...

I am sorry to say that this will be a hard no from the Federation. I also concur that firearms are a domestic issue best left to individual nations.

Opposed. I don't smoke myself .... Upon hearing those words, Groot raises an eyetwig inquisitively. He breaks off a branch from the top of his head, then rolls it awhile, forming somewhat of a cigar shape. "I am Groot," he says to Leo, motioning towards the nickel-plated lighter, hoping t...

Opposed. I don't smoke myself, and the Federation is not too keen on it to the point where we roll out ad campaigns against the act, but this is something best left to member states.

The fact GA regulars constantly use such a tone when dealing with anyone they deem unworthy of their time (and with other GA regulars they happen to disagree with) and for some reason have an absolutely amazing retention rate of new players shows otherwise as to it being needlessly aggressive.

I must admit that at first glance with the title I was leery about the contents of the proposal. Instead, I can happily say that the Federation is in support of the proposal as it provides a reasonable means of prevention without completely barring the procedure.

As it stands, the Federation is opposed. This is not to say that we consider abortion to be a trivial matter, but we recognize that in some cases it is a decision that must be made for medical, and on rare occasion moral, reasons. Attempts to limit access have the potential to harm those who may be ...

It should be clarified that this only happens with resolutions passed after one joins the WA, not the summation of all past legislation. In addition to legislation-passing, joining the WA allows participation in R&D, or raiding and defending, which is inter-region military gameplay. I agree tha...

I just want to know if it's worth joining. Our region has been anti-WA, but it might be a good thing. Any opinions on it before I reconsider my choice? The best way that I can explain it is you will get out of it what you put into it. If you just join for the sake of joining, it will not really be ...

This is nowhere near the level of an international issue. This reads more like a town charter...at best an upper class neighborhood whose residents could use a little bit of lightening up.

A good way to garner support for your proposal is to post a draft here before you submit. Doing so gives you a chance to eliminate illegalities, as well as fine tune your proposal so that most members of the WA find it acceptable. The more members that are aware, the better the chances you have of g...
