Asks: that all the nations of The WA take steps in outlawing and stoping The terror of female slavery

Declares: that All Nations must help in stoping The Trade in Female slaves, ending the slave trade of femalee, fund law enforcement agencys in combating Female slavery and helpping free female slaves.

WA Resolution #23 wrote:Ban on Slavery and Trafficking
A resolution to improve worldwide human and civil rights.

Category: Human Rights
Strength: Strong
Proposed by: Quintessence of Dust

Description: The World Assembly,

Considering slavery, forced labour and human trafficking to be violations of basic human rights,

Declares:

1. Holding under the law any person to be the possession, property, or chattel of any other person or any legal entity, or binding any person to an employer by a contract to which they have not consented, shall be considered 'slavery' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

2. Requiring any person to work, enter a work contract, or conform to terms of employment, which they have not freely agreed themselves or through a person they have freely appointed to represent them, through such means as abduction, coercion, deception, destitution, or fraud, or threats of such, to themselves or their families, including such acts as violence or criminal damage, or unlawful detention or eviction, shall be considered 'forced labour' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

3. The definition of 'forced labour' excludes:
- conscription or alternative required national service;
- prison labour or community service given as sentence in the course of a fair trial;
- required service of wartime prisoners of war and internees, in accordance with international law;
- required national emergency service;
- normal civic duties;

4. Forcing or inducing the transfer of any person against their freely given will, or assisting or financing such actions, through similar forms of coercion, for the purposes of exploitation, such as slavery or forced labour, or situations approximating to such, sexual exploitation, or unauthorised medical procedures, shall be considered 'human trafficking' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

5. Such conditions shall be collectively referred to as 'servitude';

6. All persons under condition of servitude shall be immediately freed and all contracts or conditions enforcing servitude voided;

7. Persons fleeing servitude shall be accorded refugee status, and refoulement to nations where they would be returned to such conditions or punished for escaping them prohibited;

8. Reasonable action must be taken to prevent reprisals against such persons, including the passage and enforcement of laws to criminalise such;

9. Discrimination in civil, social, economic, legal and political rights, protection under law, access to public services, travel permission and any other rights afforded by national and international law based solely on prior condition of servitude shall be prohibited, excepting any positive actions taken at the national or more local level to assist with rehabilitation, such as priority access to sheltered accommodation;

10. Goods produced, in whole or in part, through servitude shall be permanently embargoed, and all investment and material support to nations, legal entities and persons practicing servitude immediately ended, except as transition assistance or compensated manumission to free people from such conditions;

11. Nations shall take part in a concerted diplomatic effort to end servitude, and to prevent areas having abandoned such from returning to such practices;

12. Nations shall apply due scrutiny to such institutions as industries employing significant proportions of migrant workers, legal or commercial sex industries, industries employing minors, and their national organ donation systems, to identify catalysts to human trafficking, and to work, where necessary in concert with others, to eliminate such.

I'd like to thank...Yelda!

ic: While we applaud the reasons behind your proposal, we can not help but agree with our esteemed colleagues from The Great Chiefdom of Krioval in that, while well meaning, the proposal intent is covered by another, and therefore superflous.

Mei-Dai is referring to a recent violation and was probably not aware of the existence of that resolution. It does cover the recent transgression.

(OOC: Mei-Dai, your proposal writing is getting better. You've got the right idea.)

So male servitude by a female-dominant nation (these nations do exist on NS) is ok?

Perhaps it may be prudent to instead condemn The Godly Nations for violating the rights of females by subjugating them to subservience? I understand what you're trying to achieve. We believe there may be another way of doing so.

This resolution makes me feel sad. How come you are only banning female servitude? Don't men have rights too?

We believe that the reason it spells out the end to female servitude and not male is likely because the majority of societies with the WA are probably male dominated, to the point where women lack many basic rights. It would be highly unlikely to find the inverse. This is by no means a justification of course.

As has been pointed out, this proposal is pointless because of WA Resolution #23, Ban on Slavery and Trafficking which already covers this.

Its rather like having a resolution on the books that bans whaling, then submitting another that specifically bans killing Blue Whales. Just a bit redundant.
Everything you know about me is wrong. Or a rumor. Something like that.
