Whereas Article 2 section 1 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without any distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.”, and
Whereas Article 5 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”, and
Whereas Article 10 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.”, and
Glad that President Rodrigo Duterte technically ended his “War On Drugs” in October 2017 and has been a driving force for peace and prosecution of drug traffickers and users, and
Concerned that 14,000 people have been killed since March 2017 due to harsh policies against drug users and distributors, and
Saddened that children in their teens have been killed in drug operation carried out by government officials, and
Be It Hereby Resolved That The General Assembly:
- Initiate negotiation with President Duterte, thanking him for his efforts to halt drug operations, while also asking that he accept United Nations assistance in controlling the drug operations in a more peaceful and constructive way.
- After the negotiations, create a United Nations peace operation consisting of 1,500 members dedicated to fostering improved relations between police and citizens so as to prevent unnecessary incidents and or killing.
- We ask that the United Nations also dedicate a task force of 250 members to act as a supervisory agency for government and police operations to ensure that corruption and or extrajudicial killings do not occur.
- We ask for a team of 200 individuals with drug rehabilitation training and experience to come and help the Philippines set up sturdy and functioning drug rehabilitation centers. We ask this team to simply teach and guide doctors and or professionals seeking employment in this field learn how to help rehabilitate addicted individuals.
- To cover the cost of these combined operations, we ask that the United Nations dedicate 1.5% of the budget to
- The effectiveness of this operation shall be judged on the basis that if complaints regarding police and overall police killings are reduced by 50%, while also keeping the overall drug arrests and drug use in the country either reduced or the same as the date of implementation, then the operation shall be proclaimed successful.
- Assess the effectiveness of this operation 5 years after its implementation and make a decision on whether to continue sending aid from the United Nations.

Whereas Article 3 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “Everyone has the right to life, liberty, and security of person.”, and
Whereas Article 29 section 2 of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS states, “In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order, and the general welfare in a democratic society.”, and
Concerned that approximately 40,000 Middle Eastern Refugees entered the USA in 2016, and
Alarmed that since 2001 over 3,000 Americans have been killed in Terrorist Attacks on US soil initiated by Middle Eastern connected humans, and
Noting that these attacks have been claimed by Middle Eastern Terrorist Group ISIL, and
Noting that ISIL is known for using inhuman practices, such as but not limited to: mustard gas, and
Recognizing that there is a correlation direct between increased Terrorism and increased Middle Easterner Refugees coming into Western Countries, and
Keeping in Mind this is infringing on Americans right to life and security. Western Countries such as America are being targeted by Middle Eastern Terrorists, and
Realizing this is a growing concern for all Western Countries with an increase of the number of attacks occurring constantly, and
Be it Hereby Resolved That the General Assembly:
- The five permanent members of the Security Council: the United States of America, China, the Russian Federation, France, and the United Kingdom, along with the ten non-permanent members, must ban the immigration of refugees and citizens from all ISIL affiliated Countries.
- All other Countries are encouraged to ban immigration to avoid possible terrorist attacks on themselves.
- All groups suspected of terrorism related to ISIL will be subject to international jurisdiction, and appropriate consequences, as terrorism is an international offence.
- All countries on the Security Council will be mandated to increased border security, to protect against illegal immigration.
- All citizens suspected of illegal immigration will be subjected to deportation back to their country of origin at their own expense.
- All countries in the Security Council, choosing not to follow the protocols of this mandate, will be subjects of mandatory renegotiation of trade agreements with the United States.
More coming soon!
