Demonstration of staging links

I gotta have some things prepared to show to people curious about the UN tomorrow. I need some stories.

Rights of the child

A short debate with three votes, including one on paragraph 26 (b) which urges the elimination of corporal punishment in schools, and one on paragraph 41(c) about locking up children. The United States has some interesting allies, and is the only country in the world to also reject the resolution about the rights of children outright.

See above this for rights of women. Are there any resolutions about the rights of gays?


There’s always Colin Powell’s lame evidence.

Here is the 2003 report by the Secretary General about the invasion of Iraq, which does not comment on the invasion in terms of what happened (hint: hundreds of cruise missiles exploding in a heavily populated city one night) and how many died. The security council managed to explain it in more mild terms.

It’s perfectly normal to defer discussions year by year for years.

UN on the web

There is their search facility.

Talk about the fish

Got a petition back claiming “The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) discussed a Sustainable Fisheries Resolution in New York from 16 to 23 November 2006. Of particular interest was the section of the draft Resolution relating to bottom fisheries, notably bottom trawling, and their impacts on vulnerable marine ecosystems.”


UK minority nuclear

An interesting set of countries are against the total elimination of nukes.

There’s also resolution Y about the new agenda for the nuke free world. You get here from the minority votes of the UK who didn’t like the idea of not being allowed to threaten nukes on non-nuke nations.

This resolution was then rejected by loads, unlike the child one where everyone lumped it.

Sometimes there are funny voting problems.

Here is John Bolton annoying the Russians.
