ACCEL Swamps the United Nations

Repeals of Resolutions #9, #81 and # 85 reach quorum


The United Nations will be dealing with several ACCEL proposals over the coming weeks

The Department of Trade and National Sovereignty of the Alliance of Capitalists, Conservatives, and Economic Libertarians has swamped the United Nations with three ACCEL-backed resolutions reaching quorum, with a fourth also there, arguably, due to efforts of ACCEL.

The first legislative volley was a repeal of Resolution # 81, “Definition of Marriage”. Drafted on the ACCEL forum the repeal was submitted by Change Delegate Pro-Sovereignty Babes (Republicans Armed) two weeks ago and an energetic lobbying campaign was undertaken despite another draft of the repeal having been submitted a day previously by Sir Ernest Shackleton from Antarctica . While the ACCEL resolution put forth an argument for repeal on the grounds of redundancy, as much of the law is covered under other UN resolutions, the other resolution claimed that “Definition of Marriage” led to bestiality. Much to the surprise of the Department of Trade and National Sovereignty delegates approved both the ACCEL and “rival” draft leading to both repeals reaching quorum. The occurrence is thought to be the first time that two repeals of the same resolution have been queued at the same time. UN convention dictates that the proposal submitted first will be voted on by the General Assembly first. Consequently, Sir Ernest Shackleton’s draft was voted on first and looks like passing by a large margin later today to become UN Resolution #173. When that resolution passes the ACCEL draft will be removed from the proposal queue. Reaction within ACCEL was of mixed emotion, delighted to be getting rid of one of the UN’s more federalist resolutions, yet disappointed that it wasn’t an ACCEL resolution that was responsible for it. Remaining upbeat the Undersecretary of National Sovereignty, Republicans Armed, commented, “I'm glad the “Definition of Marriage” is going to be repealed, but it would be nice to get credit for all of our work to make sure that happened.”

Undeterred by this upset, Jey, a national member from the region United Nations, submitted a repeal of UN Resolution #9, “Keep the world disease free!” the following week with an ACCEL-led telegram campaign backing it up. Noting the ineffectiveness and lack of actionable language, as well as the large volume of legislation since passed on hygiene and disease prevention, the repeal easily reached quorum with plenty of time to spare. It is the ninth time Jey has got a proposal to quorum and if passed it will be his eighth resolution.

The third resolution in the sights of ACCEL is a repeal of UN Resolution #85, “Support Hemp Production”. Another resolution drafted on the ACCEL forum, it was submitted on Monday by the Secretary of Trade and National Sovereignty, Leg-ends, and reached quorum in an incredible 36 hours. Arguing a raft of points against the original the resolution attacks the absurd subsidy system, especially the bias afforded towards a particular crop. The system is unfair, as well as impractical, and leads to wasteful excess of certain crops and shortages of other essential varieties, such as food.

Away from ACCEL organised efforts, Gruenberg, the Undersecretary of Trade, has also submitted two proposals “Individual Working Freedoms” and “Clothing Supply Pact” that have reached quorum and are widely supported by ACCEL members. The first urges governments to grant freedoms to individuals to work as long as they like and is seen as a freedom-friendly replacement to the much loathed “40 Hour Work Week” resolution that was eventually repealed by ACCEL a few months back. “Clothing Supply Pact” is a free trade resolution that seeks to remove all protectionist measures on the trade of textiles.


Delegates debate the proposals submitted by ACCEL

The result of this hectic activity is that five of the six queued proposals have been submitted by ACCEL members. Secretary of Trade and National Sovereignty, Leg-ends, couldn’t be more delighted, “What this shows is the incredibly ability ACCEL has in getting proposals to quorum – why we even got one proposal to quorum without meaning to! It also demonstrates the ways in which we can assist members of ACCEL: from drafting resolutions from scratch, refining a draft presented to us or just undertaking the hard work of lobbying for proposals. I would strongly suggest that if anyone has a suggestion or draft of a proposal they present it to us and we’ll be more than happy help you out.”

The resolutions currently in queue are: Orbital Space Safety Act, Individual Working Freedoms, Repeal “Definition of Marriage”, Clothing Supply Pact, Repeal “Keep the World Disease Free!” and Repeal “Support Hemp Production”.

Orbital Space Safety Act goes to vote tomorrow and Repeal "Definition of Marriage" is expected to be removed later today.
