|#4: Liberate belgium|
|Adopted by:||WA Security Council|
|Implemented:||Tues July 28 2009|
Liberate belgium was the fourth WA Security Council resolution and the first Liberation proposal to reach the voting floor. The resolution aimed to remove the password protection from the region of Belgium. Macedon, its publicly condemned occupiers instituted the password, preventing nations from entering. Liberate belgium passed with one of the highest approval ratings (87%) in World Assembly history.
The day after the creation of a Liberation category, Goobergunchia proposed ‘Liberate belgium’ without drafting. Some opposed the proposal because its format was unlike anything the World Assembly had ever voted on before, with its complete lack of structured clauses. In defense, the ambassador of Goobergunchia stated that time had been of the essence for the proposal to be passed, and therefore did not see the proposal’s format as a legitimate concern. Many delegates approved of the proposal without hesitation – as they felt that Macedon did not deserve to keep the region as a trophy, nor prevent the Belgium community for enjoying its own region peacefully. Some of strongest voiced opinions against the proposal came from raiders, who saw this as both a de-legitimization of raiding by the World Assembly, and further proof of the Defending Community’s commanding clout over the WA Security Council. In response to such claims, Goobergunchia clarified that the resolution did not demand Macedon return the regions to the so-called natives – nor did it suggest who should control the region afterwards the liberation.
The debate quickly shifted in tone with the surprise liberation of Belgium on June 25th , before the passing of the proposal. Belgium had been liberated by members of Equilism, Texas, the Founderless Regions Alliance, Liberty Alliance and one defender from NasiCorps. The author of the proposal, Goobergunchia, in response to the liberation officially withdrew his vote on the proposal pending the new delegate of Belgium’s opinion on the proposal – such a statement arrived the following day, which requested that delegates wait till the end of the proposal’s voting before any decisions were made. In response to the official statement, some adamant ambassadors argued that such a proposition would waste the WA’s time drafting, and putting forth a repeal in the near future.
