Human Rights Comission : Second Session Debate
14 march 2019
As the delegates slowly filed into the room the chairs called for silence and order. They began by reading 6 confessions directed to the room. The confessions were enjoyed and promoted banter and good spirits in the room. Once the debating had started, the delegate of france spoke, and started by commending the delegate of mexico on a great resolution. However the delegate of France still voted against the resolution. After the delegate shared their points he was open to any and all points of information. The delegates of South Korea, India, Latvia, Mexico, Australia, Belgium and Canada all pose valid questions and the delegate of Russia answered then with the same energy. The delegate of Switzerland asked to further to points of information but the delegate of Latvia instantly objected on the grounds of all the points having been answered already. The chairs decided that further points of information would be entertained, and the delegates of Switzerland, Cuba, Mexico and Germany provided these points. However the delegate of Russia provided one word answers. The delegate of Russia yielded the floor to China. The delegate of China proceeded to speak against this clause and the delegates of Amnesty International, Colombia and Israel were recognized. The delegate of France requested to extend all the points of information but the general consensus of the room voted against this motive. The final vote for the resolution had failed which was unfortunately the third failed resolution in the Human Rights Commission. After this notion, the room was given a session of general caucus, during which the delegate of france approached the chair and “complained” about her constant lack of access to contribution that she was experiencing.
After the session, the delegate of India presented her resolution regarding sexual discrimination in the military. She began by sharing her clauses and explaining how each one connected to sexual discrimination, and the delegate was open to any amendments. The first delegate to be recognized was the delegate of Peru followed by the delegates of South Korea and South Africa.The delegate of South Africa posed a valid question regarding the violation of privacy when putting cameras/microphones into military headquarters. Interestingly the delegate of India responded with a long silence and a dodge of the question.
