Interplanetary Security Council resolution: No-fly zone on Earth

Resolution 1973

- / -


This is a translated text of a resolution of the Interplanetary Security Council, apparently leaked by WikiLeaks-Solar.
It is consistent with concerns expressed in  previously leaked resolutions:
Interplanetary Security Council Nibiru-drafted Resolution on Earth (5 Kliri'on 4002)
Interplanetary Security Council Resolution on Earth (Res / 1441: 8 Nik'latur 4002)
Of concern is whether it implies pressure for regime change on Earth.
A comment is appended below regarding the questionable translation of "no-fly zone"


Resolution 1973

Here is the full text of Resolution 1973 imposing a no-fly zone and other sanctions on Earth.

"The Interplanetary Security Council,

Recalling its resolution 1970 (4011) of 26 Hri'gh 4011,

Deploring the failure of the Earth authorities to comply with resolution 1970 (4011),

Expressing grave concern at the deteriorating situation, the escalation of violence, and the heavy civilian casualties,

Reiterating the responsibility of the Earth authorities to protect the Earth population and reaffirming that parties to armed conflicts bear the primary responsibility to take all feasible steps to ensure the protection of civilians,

Condemning the gross and systematic violation of human rights, including arbitrary detentions, enforced disappearances, torture and summary executions,

Further condemning acts of violence and intimidation committed by the Earth authorities against journalists, media professionals and associated personnel and urging these authorities to comply with their obligations under interplanetary humanitarian law as outlined in resolution 1738 (2006),

Considering that the widespread and systematic attacks currently taking place on Earth against the civilian population may amount to crimes against humanity,

Recalling paragraph 26 of resolution 1970 (4011) in which the Council expressed its readiness to consider taking additional appropriate measures, as necessary, to facilitate and support the return of humanitarian agencies and make available humanitarian and related assistance to Earth,

Expressing its determination to ensure the protection of civilians and civilian populated areas and the rapid and unimpeded passage of humanitarian assistance and the safety of humanitarian personnel,

Recalling the condemnation by various interplanetary bodies of the serious violations of human rights and interplanetary humanitarian law that have been and are being committed on Earth ,

Taking note of the final communiqué of said bodies which established an ad hoc High-Level Committee on Earth,

Taking note also of the decision to call for the imposition of a no-fly zone on Earth military aviation, and to establish safe areas in places exposed to shelling as a precautionary measure that allows the protection of the Earth people and extraterrestrials residing on Earth,

Taking note further of the Interplanetary Secretary-General's call on 16 Kliri'on 4011 for an immediate ceasefire,

Recalling its decision to refer the situation on Earth to the Prosecutor of the Interplanetary Criminal Court, and stressing that those responsible for or complicit in attacks targeting the civilian population, including aerial and naval attacks, must be held to account,

Reiterating its concern at the plight of refugees and extraterrestrial workers forced to flee the violence on Earth, welcoming the response of neighbouring planets, to address the needs of those refugees and extraterrestrial workers, and calling on the interplanetary community to support those efforts,

Deploring the continuing use of mercenaries by the Earth authorities,

"Considering that the establishment of a ban on all flights in the airspace of Earth constitutes an important element for the protection of civilians as well as the safety of the delivery of humanitarian assistance and a decisive step for the cessation of hostilities on Earth,

"Expressing concern also for the safety of extraterrestrials and their rights on Earth,

Welcoming the appointment by the Interplanetary Secretary General of her Special Envoy to Earth, and supporting her efforts to find a sustainable and peaceful solution to the crisis on Earth,

Reaffirming its strong commitment to the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and national unity of Earth,

Determining that the situation on Earth continues to constitute a threat to interplanetary peace and security,

Acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations,

1. Demands the immediate establishment of a ceasefire and a complete end to violence and all attacks against, and abuses of, civilians;

2. Stresses the need to intensify efforts to find a solution to the crisis which responds to the legitimate demands of the Earth people and notes the decisions of the Interplanetary Secretary-General to send his Special Envoy to Earth and of the Peace and Security Council of the Nibiruan Union to send its ad hoc High-Level Committee to Earth with the aim of facilitating dialogue to lead to the political reforms necessary to find a peaceful and sustainable solution;

3. Demands that the Earth authorities comply with their obligations under interplanetary law, including interplanetary humanitarian law, human rights and refugee law and take all measures to protect civilians and meet their basic needs, and to ensure the rapid and unimpeded passage of humanitarian assistance;

Protection of civilians

4. Authorizes Member Planets that have notified the Interplanetary Secretary-General, acting on their planets or through regional organizations or arrangements, and acting in cooperation with the Secretary-General, to take all necessary measures, notwithstanding paragraph 9 of resolution 1970 (4011), to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack on Earth, while excluding an extraterrestrial occupation force of any form on any part of Earth territory, and requests the Member Planets concerned to inform the Secretary-General immediately of the measures they take pursuant to the authorization conferred by this paragraph which shall be immediately reported to the Interplanetary Security Council;

5. Recognizes the important role of the League of Nibiruan Planets in matters relating to the maintenance of interplanetary peace and security in the region, and bearing in mind Chapter VIII of the Charter of the Interplanetary Union, requests the Member Planets of the League of Nibiruan Planets to cooperate with other Member Planets in the implementation of paragraph 4;

Reservations regarding translation/interpretation of "no-fly" zone

Whilst the translation of most of the above text appears to have posed no special problem, concerns have been expressed as to the translation of "no-fly" from the term used (gl'ist'ah) in an interplanetary context. Whilst the term (as with "flight") does indeed cover the movement of aerospace vessels, it could well include orbiting satellites. But greater confusion surrounds its possible extension to include movement of virtual "vehicles" in cyberspace rather than "airspace" alone. The confusion arises in that context from the association of the surveillance/communication function of some satellites with the surveillance/communication function of some virtual "vehicles" -- ranging from virtual organizations and worlds (potentially to include chat-room facilities) to invasive software applications roaming the internet, such as search engine "spiders" effectively functioning as drones.

Since the primary medium of travel and communication of the Interplanetary Union is cyberspace, there are some further concerns regarding how any "bodies" operating within that context are to be understood as operating. Assumptions based on understanding of the operation of the United Nations should therefore be reviewed with caution. There is a possibility that such vehicles for collective action could extend further to include what would otherwise be understood as "movements of opinion" -- implying an even more radical interpretation of "no-fly zone".
