Self-Defence Education Compact
A resolution to promote funding and the development of education and the arts.
Category: Educational and Creativity
Area of Effect: Educational
Proposed by: Tinhampton

Aware that people who are both above and below the age of majority can and do fall victim to violent crime, and

Believing that the ability to defend oneself from such horrors as and when they happen is a skill that ought to be endowed not just on those of us alive today, but also upon the next generation, and the one after that, and the one after that, and the one after that, and...

The General Assembly hereby:
  1. requires all educational establishments in member states which do not specialise in any subject to educate all of their students, in theory and in practice, on the importance of remaining physically fit, active, and able to compete in team and individual sports, henceforth "physical education,"
  2. further requires that all such educational establishments deliver practical lessons for all of their students on the importance and execution of basic, unarmed self-defence as part of their physical education curriculum, and
  3. suggests that those being taught self-defence under Article b also receive lessons in armed self-defence (i.e. firearms training) and more advanced unarmed self-defence.

"Individuals interested in learning may make efforts to seek that training out. Those with no interest needn't learn. Not to mention the liability issues of teaching children to hit each other in school."

"Agreed, ambassador, and to add on, not all nations need such a thing, in regards to crime rates and safety."
Somehow still arguing in the WA since 2020.

OOC: I don't know if the article you posted counts as a BBC hatepost, but it does shed light on an issue I had never really thought about.

IC: "We support this proposal. People interested in causing harm to their fellow man will go out of their way to learn how best to do so; it is necessary for self-defense strategies to become public knowledge in order to level the playing field and--hopefully--save lives."

"Assistant Venkman, this is a proposal that makes little sense and is a flagrant breach of national sovereignty.

What business does the World Assembly have in legislating on self-defence programs? This is a clear responsibility of national governments and should remain as such.

The Commonwealth of the Langburn Islands is firmly opposed to this proposal and no amendments will cause us to change our position".
