[PASSED] Wartime Journalism Protection Act

Postby Foril » Tue Jun 09, 2020 7:22 am

Category: Education & Creativity
Area of Effect: Free Press
The World Assembly,

CONCERNED that there is currently no World Assembly legislation that protects wartime journalists,

HORRIFIED that wartime journalists may get wounded, kidnapped, or even killed on the frontline simply for doing their job, and

SEEKING to introduce better protections for wartime journalists to facilitate better transmission of information and better protection of lives,

HEREBY ENACTS the following:
  1. For the purposes of this resolution:
    1. a "war zone" is an area in which acts of war are ongoing,
    2. "journalistic activities" are actions conducted with the express purpose of publishing information in the media, such as collecting information about the events of a war, interviewing local people and military personnel in the war zone, or taking photographs or videos of the war, and
    3. a "wartime journalist" is a civilian wearing clearly visible identification that identifies them as a member of the press, and who is undertaking journalistic activities in a war zone.
  2. Wartime journalists must be allowed freedom of movement in war zones and will not be denied access to an area to report on events there, unless such restriction is absolutely necessary to prevent harm to individuals or they are trespassing on private property.

  3. Wartime journalists may report on any activity that occurs within a warzone, unless reporting on such activities could lead to loss of life or property, harm to individuals or property, or the jeopardisation of military efforts.

  4. The protections enumerated in Articles 2 and 3 are subject to prior and standing international law. They shall not be granted to any wartime journalist who:
    1. commits espionage,
    2. is carrying weapons,
    3. interrupts active combat situations,
    4. enters or passes through any location, if doing so is likely to lead to imminent loss of life or harm to individuals, or to the jeopardisation of military efforts, or
    5. otherwise violates the provisions of this resolution.

"Why exactly should civilians of any kind be allowed to freely wander into warzones? And how are you going to stop spies from pretending to be journalists? Or actual journalists acting as spies?"

Do you have the first clue what operational security is or how it works? Because this statement fair well indicates you do not.

I believe that if it doesn’t damage or harm property or life, then it should be released and public. Name one situation where neither are damaged but yet we still need to keep public.

This resolution would basically allow a journalist to leak an invasion plan, which wouldn’t kill anyone or damage any property, as it would force the country to replan the invasion. Of course, this makes it basically impossible to play any kind of military action as it can be leaked without repercussions unless the invasion is literally underway.

Also, we generally only number the active clauses and not the definitions

“Clause 9 appears to suggest that member nations are not allowed to enact penalties for journalists that breach the standards of proper conducts. Is this intentional? Either way, I suggest changing it. Also, please put spaces between your clauses for easier reading.”

"It seems to me that the intent was to suggest that the proposal itself does not impose additional penalties for such breaches - although if that's the case it can certainly be clarified."

Would an edit to include invasion plans that haven't been undertaken yet in the list of prohibited items to report on be a good fix for this?

Both good points! I will fix both. Regarding clause 9, it's just poor wording.

"Then you could simply replace the contents of the proposal with this:
1. Defines a "wartime journalist" as a civilian interested in reporting the progress of an ongoing war for the public, while doing so at their own risk,

2. Forbids combatants from intentionally killing or injuring wartime journalists, as long as it is reasonably avoidable,

3. Allows militaries to ban the access of wartime journalists to information that
  1. is strategically important to military activities,
  2. is protected by extant World Assembly resolutions as private, or
  3. would place the life or safety of an individual in danger if publicized.

"That way you would be giving your journalists the freedom to endanger their lives, but would not be making them untouchable - which would be impossible to guarantee in the chaos of an active battlefield anyway - while also preventing the most obvious pitfalls of releasing information to do with a war or soldiers or the civilians working for the military."

"Clearly you don't, or your government wouldn't be allowing civilians to throw themselves haphazardly into warzones and put their lives, and the lives of your soldiers, at risk. This has nothing to do with 'journalistic freedom', it is a simple matter of whether Member-States are allowed to keep civilians clear of warzones or not; The Imperium will not have a thousand 'journalists' refusing to evacuate so that they can pose with the artillery. This legislation is fundamentally unacceptable to any Government that has even the remotest desire to protect its citizens."

Upon further review, we think that "unless the material is on military plans still in the planning stage" is sufficient. Invasions already underway are likely covered by the life and property exception anyways.

We believe that journalists, as long as they act responsibly, are essential for ensuring that militaries are responsible and do not commit e.g. war crimes. Anyways, does Clause 5 not prevent journalists from posing with the artillery via the exception worded as "physically interrupting the fighting", or does that need expansion?

“Clause 5 should have a lot more exceptions than it does. If a military group are planning to use stealth to launch an attack on enemy positions, having a journalist follow isn’t at all conducive to maintaining the element of surprise. Also, clause 3 should end ‘be considered wartime journalists’, as ‘individuals’ is plural.”

OOC: If I'm reading it right, clause 6 prohibits journalists from reporting stuff that can lead to loss of life, it doesn't say anything about where the person can go. This means a journalist can follow the stealth mission since her reporting of it later wouldn't cause any loss of life.

OOC: I think stuff like this might fall under the espionage exception.
