There is nothing wrong with it, in fact this was modeled after it, however it doesn't mention the punishments the offending nation shall recieve

You're reproducing a lot of the Convention Against Genocide in this. That alone is probably enough to render it illegal. Also, why do we need punishments for it? There is mandatory compliance. With the Convention in place, no WA nation may commit Genocidal acts.

Anyway, I would be opposed simply for punishment 3. We don't have currency and I know that other nations out there are in the same situation. Also, what if nations have outlawed the firing squad or hanging? Problem there. Could also be that some nations have no death penalty. There's lots of problems.

I'd change that probably to definitely. This duplicates an existing resolution and is illegal.

The Protectorate of the GDF won its nation from the Refusal Wars, an act that cost 20+ million citizens and soldiers to perish. To cease the assault on the main rebel forces, myself and the 17th RCT proceeded on an overnight headhunter op, capturing and eventually executing 300+ officials and enemy officers at the Sawa Grand Square. The actions we deemed necessary to seize the PoGDF, left millions dead at our feet. We could never be onboard with this.

It's been covered by a previous GA resolution. It needs to be removed from the floor *takes shot of whiskey*

Which is also illegal. No amendments. You should take a look at this Might help you in the future.

I'm not all too keen on having fixed numbers when defining genocide but wither way the existence of an active resolution on this theme makes the draft unnecessary, although this does not imply that it cannot be a replacement as long as you repealed the old version, then again the replacement needs to impress many.

Second opinion: the proposal is illegal. There is already a genocide prevention act.
