TO: The Signatories of the Amistad Declaration
FROM: The Confederation of the New Visayan Islands
RE: Signature

The Confederation of the New Visayan Islands espouses the Natural Right that is Liberty, and slavery is a fundamental violation of that same right. Slavery under New Visayan law is one of several crimes punished severely; the minimum punishment meted out to slavers and other violators of international law is forty years' imprisonment, with the death penalty the maximum punishment.

Consequently, I, speaking for the Confederation, wish to affix my signature to the Amistad Declaration.

______ OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL TREATIES AND RELATIONS _____



To whom this may concern,

The Arcturan Republic is a nation with a long and storied, if not troubled, past. Following the abdication of the last emperor, we in the government of Arcturus Novus have committed ourselves to reshaping the nation into a country by and for the people.

We recognize slavery as an inherent harm toward the liberty of all men. We do this in acknowledgement and resentment of our past; until 1692 CE, the practice of slavery was permitted in Arcturus Novus. This was a very dark point in Arcturan history, and we are committed to never repeating it.

We, the undersigned, hereby recognize and declare allegiance to the Amistad Declaration and its signatories, and commit ourselves and our powers to ending the vile practice of slavery in this world.

"With my father stepping down the throne, I hereby take responsibility as the head of a signatory state in the Amistad Declaration. We will not give the slaver any respite whatsoever; we will fight them according to our rules, our plans, our game; the slaver shall know no mercy, no respite, no respect, nothing.

We have been appointed by God to carry out His abolitionist will by bringing the slavers to Him, that He may judge to whom He will grant entry to heaven. Whoever steals a man or woman and sells them, and anyone found in possession of them, shall be put to death! If they return their slaves, should they be a customer, they will only be granted long-term imprisonment, but should they be a trader of slaves, they will be denied the right to life.

This I sign to commit to fighting the slaver menace shoulder to shoulder with our foreign comrades in the Amistad Declaration."

To: Alexander Kirillovich Kazansky,

Subject: Amistad Declaration




Your Imperial Majesty,

I am pleased on this day to rectify the mistake of my predecessor in advising the Queen-in-Counsel on the matter of the Amistad Declaration on Slavery and the Rights of Man. The former Capoðaine was concerned overmuch with minor affairs and details, where it matters not to this Captaincy whether one nation or another restrains its bloodlust and respects the disbanded and defeated soldiery of slaver states. This dealt a dishonour to the tradition of the Kouralian soldiers championing the values of freedom, justice, and honour - both at home and abroad. Therefore without hesitation I sign the Amistad Declaration, and without reservation commit the men and women serving the Count Martial to the enactment of article 3 of this treaty. Within a week this will be ratified by the Senate and Noble Assembly, and the Bill to Ratify the Amistad Declaration on Slavery and the Rights of Man will be placed before the Crown for royal assent.

I thank you for your time and wish your colours many victories over your dishonourable foemen,

Greetings, denizens of Amistad countries.

My name is Fiona Mellering, and I am a Senior Foreign Relations Representative and engineer with Kazansky Heavy Industries, a large industrial company owned by House Blaken-Kazansky, Allanea’s ruling house. Recently, House Blaken-Kazansky has successfully sold DPRs for its key products to the Empire of the Lemons, agreeing to be paid in pure gold. As part of our advertising pitch, we have promised that a percentage of the proceeds from the sales of the Quiver-class arsenal ship and DPRs thereto will be spent on counterslavery operations.

As such, I have been authorized by Their Imperial Majesties, Alexander and Cassiopeia Blaken-Kazansky, to spend at least 50 billion Universal Standard Dollars to fund counterslavery activities in Amistad Declaration signatories. To avoid obvious fraud, these funds will only be available to those member states who have signed the Amistad Declaration prior to the announcement. A further 5 billion will be available for disbursal for private organizations that act against slavers and sapient traffickers, and another 5 billion towards the creation of rehabilitation centers for former slaves and victims of sapient trafficking.

I await your applications for a share of this assistance.

Dear friends!

We appreciate your swift reply to our inquiry.

Having researched the issues faced by your nation’s counterslavery forces, we wish to donate a sum of $2.5 billion Universal Standard dollars to your nation. We ask only that the funding be used by your nation to produce patrol aircraft, sensors, and other needful equipment, to improve your coast guard, naval, and air force abilities to detect and track down slaver craft, and to train crews to recover the victims of sapient trafficking from on board the craft.

Furthermore, Kazansky Heavy Industries will invite naval and law enforcement personnel from your nations, as well as medics, psychologists, and social workers from your nation to professional improvement courses in Allanea, paid for and hosted by Kazansky Heavy Industries, for the purpose of training and education on the ways to deal with, and resolve, both the issues surrounding slavery itself, and on aiding its victims. These will be held at hotels in Liberty-City, Port-Allanea, and in the Allanean Barrier Islands.

RE: Counterslavery Shares

As a signatory to the Amistad Declaration, the Confederation wishes to apply for its share of 50 billion Universal Standard. While we have been successful in prosecuting slavers and other hostes humani generis within our immediate area of responsibility with extreme prejudice, we have determined that it is in the rehabilitation of the liberated that the bulk of our expenditures in anti-slavery operations lies, and as such, this is where we intend to use the shares.

Dear friends!

We appreciate your swift reply to our inquiry.

As you have noticed, we have established a separate rehabilitation fund for the purpose of aiding former slaves and victims of sapient trafficking. We would like to spend in your nation a total of 400 million Universal Standard dollars for the construction of mental hospitals for a capacity of 1,000 patients, and an additional sum of 1 billion Universal Standard dollars to allow these hospitals to be maintained, and their patients cared for, for the next five years. These are hoped to provide both inpatient and outpatient services to freedmen who have suffered some manner of (sadly highly likely) trauma during their captivity.

Moreover, we are hereby donating to your nation an additional sum of 1.1 billion Universal Standard Dollars to aid with the general expenditures of accommodating freedmen during their integration in Visayan society, such as apprenticeship programs to help them get new professions as free individuals, seed funds for freedmen-operated businesses, and construction of housing.

Finally, and beyond these expenditures, the Kazansky Heavy Industries Corporation will host professional expansion courses for Visayan mental health professionals and social workers to help deal with the serious health and social issues arising with freedmen and other victims of human trafficking.

Dear friends!

As a representative of Their Imperial Majesties, I am happy to report that they have agreed to reply positively to your request. They’ve agreed to issue a sum of 2 billion Universal Standard Dollars for the purpose of strengthening your Coast Guard with new equipment, ships, and sensors, and an additional 500 million Universal Standard Dollars for assisting in the prosecution of slave traffickers in courts and investigation of their crimes.

Moreover, His Imperial Majesty, Alexander Kirillovich Blaken-Kazansky, has authorized a $1,000,000 prize, to be issued to whatever law enforcement agents in your country are the most effective (as ruled by yourself as President) in releasing slaves. You may issue this prize entirely to a single agent, or split it between several, as determined by yourself. His Imperial Majesty asks only that the determination be made in such a way as to encourage other agents to follow the example and to aid as many of the innocent as they can.

Thank you for all your efforts,
And death to the slaver.

Pax Prosperitas - Gloria in Maere

By Order of Their Imperial Majesty's Government


From: The Whittan Office, The Aestorian Commonwealth
To: Their Imperial Majesties, Alexander and Cassiopeia, The House of Blaken-Kazansky, c/o Fiona Mellering
Encryption: Publicly Announced

Your Imperial Majesties,

We would like to thank you for the generous intent of your donation. It seems that given that the Aestorian Commonwealth currently resettles over a million refugees per day, particularly former slaves and those at high risk; and also devotes some 70% of its navy and a fair proportion of its other forces to interregional slave interdiction, our economists have estimated that we currently spend more than two hundred billion per week on anti-slavery operations, and any amount you propose would be a drop in the ocean, lost in the churn of international government spending.

Now, as we are not a formal signatory of the Armistad Declaration, we likely cannot avail ourselves to your charity; but, our consideration of what we would do if we did has inspired us to match your campaign with one of our own: given the disparities in size between companies and governments, we think it clear that our governments should step up our efforts in honour of the generosity of companies such as yours. Therefore we would like to announce that we have set aside $60 billion of our own for opening an Armistad co-ordination centre, in union with the International Cross’s continued IFC 3rd Ministry constitutional commitments to the Anti-Slavery Office, in order to improve co-ordination in this alliance in patrolling shipping lanes, interdicting slaves, buying slaves, rescuing high-risk refugees, best-practices for rehabilitation, military intelligence, and war planning. We will also double any and all donations you make to Armistad signatories as part of this campaign by making a further $60 billion immediately available.

With your permission we will also name the central building of our Armistad co-ordination centre ‘Blaken-Kazansky House’ in recognition of your generosity. May the name Blaken-Kazansky be forever our inspiration and the scourge of the slaver.

I have the honour to remain,

[OOC: Note I intend to RP the co-ordination centre. Anyone up for a summit and hunting down some slavers?

Also, for those of you following Aestorian Constitutional Law (a fascinating subject), the flag, style, and titles used here denote the emergence of the Chattakang Republic & Empire... you may now start arguing about any of the following: what the blazes the Aestorian lawyers are up to now, exactly how many Emperors are now joint monarchs for a single country, how much longer is the Commonwealth likely to remain united for, why does it matter anyway since they're in a supersovereign single-market, why does Richard get to claim an Imperial Title, does this Imperial Title cover the Panessos regional government, etc, etc...]

The Prussian-Polish Commonwealth hereby announces its intention to sign The Amistad Declaration on Slavery and the Rights of Man. Since the foundation of the Commonwealth, slavery has been a capital crime, and we oppose slavery of any kind. Two of the signatories have participated in numerous raids conducted by the Heer against human traffickers. The less said about the slaver's fates, the better.
But words and a fancy signature alone is not sufficient.
The Commonwealth also opens its borders to facilitate any antislavery operation, and will provide full support to nations combatting slavery. Economic, military, and logisitcal support-all of it is yours.

The High Court of Parliament considers slavery a breach of the peremptory norms of the international common law. Accordingly, the slave trade is ruthlessly suppressed in the Europe-Atlantic by the Newly-Modelled Navy pursuant to the Doctrine of Pax Parliamentaria.

Because slavers are cowardly vermin who will with undignified haste rapidly land slaves or even throw them overboard directly a cruiser’s ensign is sighted, legislation passed by the High Court of Parliament extends authority to intercept and seize slavers such that it includes ships which have carried slaves and ships which had not yet carried them but are obviously intending to do so.

Ships found without any proof given to the contrary of the following indicia of participation in the slave trade anywhere in the Europe-Atlantic will be intercepted by the Newly-Modelled Navy, broken up for scrap at Nachhôth next the Sea naval yard, and their crews will be tried by the doctrinaire justices of the High Court of Revolutionary Cases Reserved before being sent to the gallows for a smart hanging:

    a. hatches with open gratings;
    b. divisions or bulkheads in the hold or on deck in greater number than are necessary for a merchantman engaged in lawful trade;
    c. spare planks fitted for being laid down as a second, or ‘slave’, deck;
    d. shackles, bolts or handcuffs;
    e. a larger quantity of water, in casks or tanks, than is requisite for the consumption of the crew;
    f. an extraordinary number of water casks;
    g. a greater number of mess tubs than are requisite for the use of the crew;
    h. a boiler or other cooking apparatus of an extraordinary size;
    i. a greater quantity of any article of food than is requisite for the probable wants of the crew; and
    j. a quantity of mats or matting greater than is necessary for a merchantman engaged in lawful trade.

In furtherance of the Eternal Republic’s War on Slavery, and with the aim of deepening productive ties with the Kingdom of Allanea, the Prime Minister of Xirnium Eléanor Sabelina zy Nelyâmnar is pleased to sign the Amistad Declaration on Slavery in Närväryn on 3 Valefôse Bright Era MMMDCCXCIX.

The Amistad Declaration on Slavery will enter into force after the completion of domestic legal and parliamentary processes in the Eternal Republic, including review by the Eternal Republic’s Parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on Treaties and the Council of the Estates Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committees. The High Court of Parliament is working to complete these steps and bring into force the Amistad Declaration on Slavery as soon as possible.

To the nations and committee of the Amistad Declaration on Slavery and the Rights of Man,

The Democratic Republic of Cartoonia will support and sign the declaration as we all know that slavery is wrong and will do anything in our power to prevent slavery and fight against it abroad. We have experienced slavery at home before back in 1959 with the “Tower of Heaven”, a series of R-Systems dedicated to the resurrection of Zeref, a dark wizard who the Zeref Cult claims to be their god. Thousands have been kidnapped and enslaved, including our current chancellor, Erza Scarlet. After we liberated the islands, we began passing anti-slavery laws like the Scarlet Clause and the Bazaar Collary, which gives us the right to fight slavery abroad. And as this treaty correlates to our agenda, we shall sign it and make slavery a thing of the past. We are capable and willing to go to war with a slave nation.

Signed,
Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo
Chancellor Erza Scarlet
Attorney General Lisa Simpson
Secretary of Foreign Affairs Charity Bazaar

HL (and the Hiramia-Okfewian Commonwealth) would like to agree to participate in the declaration, because we will always outlaw slavery. While several colonial powers (UK, Netherlands, Germany, France and Hiramia had their colonies in HL) did install slavery, and while Meowfwkia (the predecessor of HL) did allow slavery (the colonies and Meowfwkia were a Tier 6 and Tier 8 respectively in the Slavery Tier Chart), HL did abolish slavery in 1799, because they believe slavery is a moral wrong that can cause injury and death in some situations, and will cause permanent mental issues and wouldn't help the HL economy in any way.

It is obvious for all sapient beings, that people aren’t equal and therefor shouldn’t be treated equal. Who will allow new police officers to be former convicted felons? Or who in his right mind would allow mothers to work, so that children have to raise themselves?

Therefor we reject the Amistad declaration. Without distinction it condemns all slavery. Without distinction it brings war to any peace-loving country who does not abide to its terrorist abolitionist agenda.

Not wishing to be subjected to foreign aggression we will comply to its wish in abolishing slavery in our nation by the following rulings:

  • All those who are sentenced to 10 years or more will be released of bondage (i.e. state owned slavery).
  • All those who are sentenced to 10 years or more will, instead of being subject to slavery, be banished and serve their time as exiles devoid of Nieuland citizenship.

It saddens us to have our criminals to be banished to foreign territory where they might wreak havoc upon those countries. As we deem it our moral responsibility to protect any civilized country as much as possible against these rulings, all those who will be banished, will be exiled to an arbitrary chosen Amistad nation. Furthermore exiled criminals will have no right of return until they prove they served their time in those said barbaric nations.

Child Slavery and Chocolate - Awareness Campaign

Postby Evil Lord Bane » Wed Jul 25, 2018 6:58 am

Please read this artical for complete information on the subject of Child slavery and Chocolate.

From: The office of Evil Lord Bane, Supreme Evil Overlord of the Nation of Evil Lord Bane and the Parliament of this nation.
To: The Amistad Declaration on Slavery and the Rights of Man signatory states.

In an effort to stop the use of children as slaves to grow cocoa, the primary ingredient of Chocolate, the nation of Evil Lord Bane has taken steps to put pressure on, both the Chocolate industry, and the nations who do such deplorable acts. These steps include:

1. A complete import/export ban for the nations who use children as slaves to grow cocoa, primarily the African nations of Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire.
2. Heavy Fines, loss of business licenses, and jail time for corporations and their owners who import any cocoa grown by nations that use child slaves as labor.
3. A tax on the Chocolate industry, to help fund organizations like this one in an effort to end the practice of using children as slaves.

While we take these steps unilaterally, we would like to encourage all signatory states of The Amistad Declaration on Slavery and the Rights of Man, to do likewise. We must end this despicable practice, as soon as we can.

Signed,
Evil Lord Bane, Supreme Evil Overlord of the Nation of Evil Lord Bane and the Parliament of the Nation of Evil Lord Bane.

Nieuland wrote:It is obvious for all sapient beings, that people aren’t equal and therefor shouldn’t be treated equal. Who will allow new police officers to be former convicted felons? Or who in his right mind would allow mothers to work, so that children have to raise themselves?

Therefor we reject the Amistad declaration. Without distinction it condemns all slavery. Without distinction it brings war to any peace-loving country who does not abide to its terrorist abolitionist agenda.

Not wishing to be subjected to foreign aggression we will comply to its wish in abolishing slavery in our nation by the following rulings:

  • All those who are sentenced to 10 years or more will be released of bondage (i.e. state owned slavery).

Official Message from the Free Kingdom Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Without addressing some of the philosophical ideas expressed in this messages, we would like to welcome Nieuland, tentatively, to the world of civilized countries. The Free Kingdom wishes to offer Nieuland the following gesture of goodwill:

1. We will accept exiles from Nieuland if Nieuland chooses to send them to us, and work with the relevant agencies Nieuland to establish appropriate facilities to accept these individuals and have them travel to Allanea safely.
2. We are ready to grant a small sum of money (up to $150 million Universal Standard Dollars) from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' International Assistance Discretionary Fund to aid Nieuland's transition to a non-slave economy.
3. Should economic issues arise, and should our research appear that Nieuland's transition to a non-slave economy be in good faith, we will work with abolitionist charities in Allanea and elsewhere, to ensure that additional aid funds are secured.

Furthermore, death to the slaver..

SOLIDARITY FOR ALL TIME
Offical Communication from the United Socialist States of Halend

From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs


Ever since the revolution in 1998, Halend has stood against oppression in all of its forms. We are dedicated to ensuring the freedom of the human spirit and the defeat of the fascist, the emperor, and yes, the slaver. Slavery represents a fundamental violation of the sancity of humankind itself. We will stand by no longer.

Today, the Council and the House both overwhelmingly voted in favor of joining the Amistad Declaration, and I am proud to carry out that decision. To end the threat of the fascist once and for all, we must wage total war on his tools. This is our first step into the larger fight.

Death to the slaver.

-- Prime Minister Toshi Funaki
SOLIDARITY FOR ALL TIME
The United Socialist States of Halend

An island nation in the East Pacific mainly inspired by Japan, the US, China, Scandinavia and the Tropico games. Large military and likes to project power, but domestically mediocre. The current prime minister is Toshi Funaki--if in doubt on who to address, go with him. RP population is 51 million.
