Delegates at the last day of debate voting. (Carmen López)
The last journey of the URJCmun 2019 pulls out with difficulty at the Human Rights Council. With 35 delegations present, the final resolution towards the recognition of TRANS LGTBQ+ sexual identity was projected in front of the hall.
Before the ending voting that was long and intense, the debate forum was mainly leaded by Germany. During the session, the delegations had the opportunity to suggest and vote the amendments, which they have been previously working on.
The modifications proposed by the different states were numerous and variated so some of them were accepted however others were not.
Despite the effort of some delegations, establishing common points is at least hard when talking about such a large and variated Council. This difficulty increases substantially when treating a complex and controversial topic as the recognition of TRANS LGTBQ+ sexual identity.
After all, the resolution succeeded with 9 votes against and 3 abstentions.
The experience? Amazing
The lesson? The defense of Human Rights is such an arduous task but, at the same time, a thrilling challenge that needs to be faced.
