General Assembly Proposal
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #287 “Cultural Site Preservation” (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Cultural Heritage) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
Acknowledging that a society may come to re-evaluate once-respected cultural sites as symbolic of past or current oppression,
Urging the World Assembly to consider that many of the cultural sites preserved under this resolution may include statues that honor individuals who are now considered to be offensive,
Recognizing as problematic the requirement that the World Assembly "fulfill requests by nations to assist in the preservation of sites when the nation in question is unable to do so" since this requirement means the World Assembly could be called upon to defend a cultural site that a government is unable to preserve due to popular opposition to it,
Finding the requirement that nations "shall take all reasonable precautions to avoid unnecessary damage to sites the WATCH has deemed culturally relevant" as censorious and repressive of popular opinion should a group of concerned citizens wish to remove or destroy a cultural site it finds offensive,
Repeals "Cultural Site Preservation."
