However, we strenuously object to the notion that corporations have human rights (such as the right to freedom of speech) in the same way that a natural person does. So, you state that you, as a natural person should have the right to state, what you just stated here, but as spokesperson for your g...

Government can be party to a lawsuit as a manifestation of the State, can it not? I understood that this was a basic principle of the State's existence "Ah, so you just permit corporations to faff around, impossible to sue. Gotchya." *Matthew grumbles* if you're going to be pedantic ambas...

The proposal doesn't create corporate personhood. It creates legal personhood: "Defines a legal person to be an entity other than an individual that has rights or obligations in law". If you in fact disagree with the proposal for the reason that it creates the ability for an entity other ...

Opposed due to unworkability and obvious illegality. GAR 2 requires Member States to comply with all resolutions (see Article 9). Yet your clause 2 indirectly repeals that part of GAR 2 (which it can't do anyway) by allowing nations to be selective about the resolutions they comply with. OOC: I'...

Sorry for the pedantry but I've only just noticed this. Your title says
[REPLACEMENT]
. What are you replacing? If you're trying to replace legislation that already exists, you can't do that through this resolution - you need to repeal the original legislation first - and you can't amend either.

This may be a bit obscure, especialy since the text of the Resolution doesn't expressly say this, but I'm reading this as a Committee violation because the Resolution indirectly adds another task to a pre-existing Committee - namely, it requires the Compliance Commission to bring cases of noncomplia...

Sorry for being hideously picky, and I don't know if someone has already picked this up but as an LGBT person it's important to me.

It is not correct to refer to someone as "transgendered". The proper term is "transgender" or "trans".
