Langkawi Declaration

The Langkawi Declaration on the Environment was a declaration issued by the assembled Heads of Government of the Commonwealth of Nations on the issue of environmental sustainability. It was issued on October 21, 1989 at Langkawi, Malaysia, during the tenth Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. The declaration covers a wide range of topics related to the environment, blaming past neglect in managing the natural environment and resources. It lists what the Heads of Governments perceived to be the main environmental problems: the greenhouse effect, damage to the ozone layer, acid rain, marine pollution, land degradation, and species extinction. These, the declaration affirmed, were issues that transcended national borders, and hence required the involvement of international organisations, such as the Commonwealth, to coordinate strategies to solve them. A key agreement in the formulation of the agreement was the pledge by developed countries not to connect future international development aid to commitment to environmental sustainability or introduce trade barriers. This, the developing countries argued, would prevent economic growth described as a compelling necessity, and hence reduce their ability to develop sustainable natural environments. In exchange, the developing countries conceded to the Commonwealths developed members, their interest in protecting the environment. Amongst the commitments made by members in the Langkawi Declaration were: Support the development of an international sustainable development funding mechanism. Promote energy efficiency. Support the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and recommend the Commonwealths own report on climate change. Prevent dumping of toxic or hazardous materials in the oceans or in developing countries. Promote afforestation and sustainable forest management in developing countries, and the conservation of virgin forest to protect biodiversity. Promote public awareness of environmental risks and issues. Restrict non-sustainable fisheries, including banning tangle nets and pelagic driftnet fishing, as part of a general trend amongst international organisations.


Government policy statement

A government policy statement is a declaration of a governments political activities, plans and intentions relating to a concrete cause or, at the assumption of office, an entire legislative session. In certain countries they are announced by the head of government or a minister of the parliament. In constitutional monarchies this function may be fulfilled by the Speech from the Throne. In Germany and Austria the Chancellor submits a government policy statement Regierungserklarung at the beginning of the session of the Bundestag in Austria: Nationalrat, in which they announces the intended policies of the government during the next legislative session. The statement is not legally binding, but is a significant constitutional commitment for the parliament and the government. During the legislative period the federal government, through the Chancellor and the ministers, can give statements to the parliament through the chancellor or the ministers concerning current political themes. It cannot however be obliged to give such statements. In Belgium, the federal government holds its policy statement Beleidsverklaring on the second Wednesday in October; its northern region of Flanders states its September Declaration Septemberverklaring on the fourth Monday of September. In the Netherlands, every third Tuesday in September is Prinsjesdag: the king holds the Speech from the throne Troonrede and the government will state its policy and budget plans in the Budget Memorandum Miljoenennota for the next year. When a new government coalition has been formed after elections, the Prime Minister will make a similar statement Regeringsverklaring for the four year legislative period it intends to run the country. In Sweden, the Prime Minister holds the governments statement Regeringsforklaring at the start of their governments legislative session and at the start of each parliamentary year.


Second Phase of the Revolution

Second Phase of the Revolution or "Second Step of the Revolution" is a statement that was issued by the supreme leader of Iran, Sayyid Ali Khamenei to the country, particularly to the youth, and was published in February 2019, on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of the victory of the Iranian Revolution. In "The second phase of the revolution", also known as "The second phase" or "The second step", Khamenei expresses the achievements of the last forty years. He presents recommendations toward the goal of "a great Jihad for the sake of making a great Islamic Iran". Khamenei clarifies the issue of "the second step" towards Islamic revolution ideals in seven sections. A part of this statement speech which is addressed to young people by Seyyed Ali Khamenei, is as follows: "Dear ones!. Many of what we have seen and experimented, your generation has not experienced and seen yet. We have seen and you will see. The decades ahead are your decades, and it is you who should protect your revolution while you are qualified and full of motivation, and move it closer to its great ideal: that is, the emergence of a new Islamic civilization and the preparation for the rising of the great sun of wilayat." In another section of "the second phase of the revolution" statement, it mentions that: the Islamic revolution transmitted the spirit and belief of "we can do it" to everybody; and also thanks to the enemies’ sanctions which taught everybody to rely on its domestic capacities, and likewise it unfolded an origin of great blessings.


Signing statement

A signing statement is a written pronouncement issued by the President of the United States upon the signing of a bill into law. They are usually printed along with the bill in United States Code Congressional and Administrative News. The statements begin with wording such as "This bill, which I have signed today" and continue with a brief description of the bill and often several paragraphs of political commentary. During the administration of President George W. Bush, there was a controversy over the Presidents use of signing statements, which critics charged was unusually extensive and modified the meaning of statutes. The practice predates the Bush administration, however, and was also used by the succeeding Obama administration. In July 2006, a task force of the American Bar Association stated that the use of signing statements to modify the meaning of duly enacted laws serves to "undermine the rule of law and our constitutional system of separation of powers".


Spanish Requirement of 1513

The Spanish Requirement of 1513 was a declaration by the Spanish monarchy, written by the Council of Castile jurist Juan Lopez de Palacios Rubios, of Castiles divinely ordained right to take possession of the territories of the New World and to subjugate, exploit and, when necessary, to fight the native inhabitants. The Requerimiento Spanish for "requirement" as in "demand" was read to Native Americans to inform them of Spains rights to conquest. The Spaniards thus considered those who resisted as defying Gods plan, and so used Catholic theology to justify their conquest.
