46RZ11, The Humanity Is For Everyone Amendment

WHEREAS the Organic Law, and especially, the Covenant of Rights have been designed for the protection of the people against the state and other people; and,

WHEREAS it seems to be against any humanitarian reason that the Covenants are only guaranteed to Citizens of Talossa, but not eventual refugees we might get, or tourists, prospectives, or visitors; and,

WHEREAS I would like to think that we have no policy of Guantánamobaying non-Talossan citizens when they commit any crime; now

THEREFORE the Ziu approves that the following changes to the Organic Law's Covenant of Rights be commended to the citizenry for ratification:

- THE PREAMBLE, which currently reads:

The Covenant of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in them to all Talossan citizens, subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society. These Covenants shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with Talossan custom and tradition, and with the aim in mind of preserving and enhancing the ethnic heritage of the Talossan nation and the peace, order, and good government for the Kingdom of Talossa.

shall be amended to read:

The Covenant of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in them to every person, subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society. These Covenants shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with Talossan custom and tradition, and with the aim in mind of preserving and enhancing the ethnic heritage of the Talossan nation and the peace, order, and good government for the Kingdom of Talossa.

- THE THIRD COVENANT, which currently reads:

Talossans have the right to peaceful assembly whether in private facilities or in the open air, provided that such assembly neither disrupts traffic or legal commercial activity, or unduly inconveniences people. Talossans have the right to freely organize political parties and other organizations, subject to their own laws of membership, and this right may not be abridged except with regards to organizations which advocate the use of violence or intimidation to attain political or other ends, or which seek to restrain any person or group of people from the exercise of their rights as granted under these Covenants.

shall be amended to read:

Every person has the right to peaceful assembly, whether in private facilities or in the open air, provided that such assembly neither disrupts traffic or legal commercial activity, nor unduly inconveniences people. Every person has the right to freely organise any kinds of organisations, subject to their own laws of membership, and this right may not be abridged except with regards to organisations which advocate the use of violence or intimidation to attain political or other ends, or which seek to restrain any person or group of people from the exercise of their rights as granted under these Covenants, or organisations that are otherwise anti-organic. However, political parties may only be registered and headed by Talossan citizens, in order to preserve the political power vested in the people of Talossa. Notwithstanding this limitation for the political parties, political parties are subject to their own laws of membership.

- THE FOURTH COVENANT, which currently reads:

Under the principle that "A Man's Room is His Kingdom," the right of the people to privacy and security in their persons, homes, papers, correspondence, and property, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended. No person may be arrested or detained without a warrant issued by a judge, except in cases of flagrante delicto. No warrants shall be issued except on probable cause, and must particularly describe the place to be searched and the person or things to be seized. The right to privacy for public figures must be balanced by the public's right to know, in matters affecting politics, elections, campaigns, and governing. The intentional withholding of political information which reasonable voters might find helpful, profitable, or informative, violates the public's right to know.

shall be amended to read:

Under the principle that "A Man's Room is His Kingdom," any person's right to privacy and security in their persons, homes, papers, correspondence, and property, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated. The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended. No person may be arrested or detained without a warrant issued by a judge, except in cases of flagrante delicto. No warrants shall be issued except on probable cause, and must particularly describe the place to be searched and the person or things to be seized. The right to privacy for public figures must be balanced by the public's right to know, in matters affecting politics, elections, campaigns, and governing. The intentional withholding of political information which reasonable voters might find helpful, profitable, or informative, violates the public's right to know.

- THE FIFTH COVENANT, which currently reads:

Any person charged with an offence shall be presumed innocent until proven guilty, and has the right to request information on his legal rights. No accused person shall be twice put in jeopardy of life, liberty, or property for the same offence, or without due process of law; nor shall any citizen be compelled in any criminal case to bear witness against himself. Excessive fines, and cruel and bizarre punishments, shall not be inflicted.

shall be amended to read:

Any person charged with an offence shall be presumed innocent until proven guilty, and has the right to request information on his legal rights. No accused person shall be twice put in jeopardy of life, liberty, or property for the same offence, or without due process of law; nor shall any person be compelled in any criminal case to bear witness against himself. Excessive fines, and cruel and bizarre punishments, shall not be inflicted.

- THE SEVENTH COVENANT, which currently reads:

No person shall be found guilty on account of any act or omission, unless, at the time of the act or omission, it constituted an offence under Talossan or international law, or was criminal according to the general principles of law recognized by the community of civilized nations, as interpreted by Talossan courts in line with Talossan traditions and needs.

will be amended to read followingly, because international law does not apply to Talossa and convicting someone in a Talossan court of law because Lala-Land prohibits dancing with your shoes on is not cool:

No person shall be found guilty on account of any act or omission, unless, at the time of the act or omission, it constituted an offence under Talossan law, or under an international law recognised by the Kingdom of Talossa, or was criminal according to the general principles of law recognised by the community of civilized nations, as interpreted by Talossan courts in line with Talossan traditions and needs.

- THE EIGHTH COVENANT, which currently reads:

Talossa shall never tax nor purport to tax, unduly burden, outlaw or abridge for its citizens any right to acts of: peaceful assembly; religious worship or affiliation; political speech or expression or affiliation; religious or historical or scientific or philosophical belief; abortion (being the freely conscious ability for a woman to make a determination on the continuation of her pregnancy); consensual sexual activity (between two consenting people of an age of responsibility); contraception; marriage (between consenting adults regardless of their sex, unless they are consanguineous up to the fourth degree of relationship), civil unions (and equivalents); divorce; adoption; advance health care directives; attempted suicide; euthanasia; the reading of any book; and the writing or use of any language. Neither shall any person be made to answer in any Talossan court for the alleged, admitted, or actual violation of any foreign law restricting or denying any right to or forbidding any act enumerated above.

shall be amended to read:

Talossa shall never tax nor purport to tax, unduly burden, outlaw or abridge for any person any right to acts of: peaceful assembly; religious worship or affiliation; political speech; religious or historical or scientific or philosophical belief; abortion (being the freely conscious ability for a woman to make a determination on the continuation of her pregnancy); consensual sexual activity (between two consenting people of an age of responsibility); contraception; marriage (between consenting adults regardless of their sex, unless they are consanguineous up to the fourth degree of relationship), civil unions (and equivalents); divorce; adoption; advance health care directives; attempted suicide; euthanasia; the reading of any book; and the writing or use of any language. The rights to political expression or affiliation, additionally, shall be held by Talossan citizens, and these rights are not to be taxed, nor purported to tax, unduly burdened, outlawed or abridged. Neither shall any person be made to answer in any Talossan court for the alleged, admitted, or actual violation of any foreign law restricting or denying any right to or forbidding any act enumerated above.
