Prohibition of Slavery, Forced Labor, and Trafficking

Since all forms of slavery, forced labor, and human trafficking are inexcusable violations of basic human rights, this act declares that:

1. Holding under the law any person to be the possession, property, or chattel of any other person or any legal entity, or binding any person to an employer by a contract to which they have not consented, shall be considered 'slavery' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

2. Requiring any person to work, enter a work contract, or conform to terms of employment, which they have not freely agreed themselves or through a person they have freely appointed to represent them, through such means as abduction, coercion, deception, destitution, or fraud, or threats of such, to themselves or their families, including such acts as violence or criminal damage, or unlawful detention or eviction, shall be considered 'forced labor' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

3. The definition of 'forced labor' excludes:
- conscription or alternative required national service;
- prison labor or community service given as sentence in the course of a fair trial;
- required service of wartime prisoners of war and internees, in accordance with international law;
- required national emergency service;
- normal civic duties;

4. Forcing or inducing the transfer of any person against their freely given will, or assisting or financing such actions, through similar forms of coercion, for the purposes of exploitation, such as slavery or forced labor, or situations approximating to such, sexual exploitation, or unauthorized medical procedures, shall be considered 'human trafficking' and immediately prohibited in all nations;

5. Such conditions shall be collectively referred to as 'servitude';

6. All persons under condition of servitude shall be immediately freed and all contracts or conditions enforcing servitude voided;

7. Persons fleeing servitude shall be accorded refugee status, and refoulement to nations or areas where they would be returned to such conditions or punished for escaping them prohibited;

8. Reasonable and thorough action must be taken to prevent reprisals against such persons, including the passage and enforcement of laws to criminalize such;

9. Discrimination in civil, social, economic, legal and political rights, protection under law, access to public services, travel permission and any other rights afforded by national and international law based solely on prior condition of servitude shall be prohibited, excepting any positive actions taken at the national or more local level to assist with rehabilitation, such as priority access to sheltered accommodation;

10. Goods produced, in whole or in part, through servitude shall be permanently embargoed, and all investment and material support to nations, legal entities and persons practicing servitude immediately ended, except as transition assistance or compensated manumission to free people from such conditions;

11. Nations shall take part in a concerted diplomatic effort to end servitude, and to prevent areas having abandoned such from returning to such practices;

12. Nations shall apply due scrutiny to such institutions as industries employing significant proportions of migrant workers, legal or commercial sex industries, industries employing minors, and their national organ donation systems, to identify catalysts to human trafficking, and to work, where necessary in concert with others, to eliminate such.

Hmmm.... is this an RP-type bill or just another bill for Tiberiam Region?

Regardless, although I agree that human slavery is a horrible and inefficient method, I cannot say yes to this legislation, because of my country's corporate nature. Anything that has something to do with embargo or restriction of trade is definitely not even up for discussion if I go IC.

Therefore, Oscalantine says that although it supports the cause of this bill, it will refrain from voting, for Oscalantine is too pro-business to consider this matter.

Considering the ravages of slavery imposed on Rasvidi during the Commonwealth Era, Rasvidi is going to support this legislation.

Did my bill pass?

Also, Civa apparently has a booming, gov-funded slave trade.

It's forced labor, but yes. Also, do you honestly expect me to abide by this bill? Who's going to enforce it? As far as I can see, it doesn't matter whether this passes or not.
