Refugia Regional Message Board
Even beyond the personal reasons to vote against, there are plenty of others. I took a look at this last night before casting my vote (Against) and it's just... not constructed well. The writing is sloppy, it chooses to define things that don't need defining (NGO), and it doesn't actually do anything. Take a look at these clauses under 'Hereby legislates that':
I probably didn't need to bold the problem here, but encouraging isn't actually legislating. You don't write a proposal in the GA with the intention of legislating the governments that are in favour of what you're proposing. You write the proposal with the intention of regulating the governments that wouldn't normally do the right thing in this case. So all in all, at least from my one read-through, I can't see a reason for me to vote in favour of this. The goals might be fine, but to my eyes, the proposal absolutely is not.
Also, something Natalie pointed out in the discord server:
Welcome, Declandban, Akeshima, Lethedral, Feska, Banchuria, Natlean, Kalmykoya, Easian Negas, Nissan Marino, Starfa, Sortani, Nether Budgerigar, Dancin is What To Do, Minskievian Refugees, and Chill and Cool Vibes, to Refugia! I hope all of you enjoy your stays. If it applies to you, please pay attention to the rest of this message.
Refugia aims to be a friendly, laid-back community, which is open to players of all skill levels. Nations who wish to become more active in the region, however, should consider joining the World Assembly (WA). WA nations are able to vote on international law, and receive exclusive benefits within the region, such as the ability to vote in regional polls and elections, get a spot on Refugia's map, and even run for office when elections come up! If you're interested in joining the WA, check out this article, and make sure to endorse our delegate.
If you'd rather just chill with us, that's perfectly fine as well. We have an offsite forum, as well as frequent discussions on the regional message board (RMB), which everyone is welcome to participate in!
If you have any additional questions about the region or how NationStates works, feel free to leave them here, on the RMB. If you're interested in joining our offsite forum, look for the link at the top of Refugia's World Factbook Entry (the big text box at the top of our regional page).
Once again, I really hope you enjoy your time here, and look forward to seeing more of you soon!
