We propose that an annual audit be performed by review of relevant statistics, as to the progress of the implementation of these welfare legislations, by publishing the same and making them available to the people through, press, electronic media and internet web-sites.
Responsible Governments, all over the world have enacted and implemented social welfare legislation to protect the rights of these sections of the society, and to take care of their life and Liberty. If the governments fail to enact and implement such legislation immediately, it will only result in protests, social unrest, and sometimes even unnecessary/mindless violence and demonstrations.
It is further resolved, that the Thai Government has not done enough to enact and implement social welfare legislation for the protection of these above-mentioned sections of society in Thailand, who have no means of protecting themselves and/or earning a livelihood.
The following measures must be immediately undertaken:
- Free and compulsory education to children below 15 years of age.
- Creation of funds for juvenile detention centres.
- Homes for homeless.
- Adequate financial assistance to the unemployed.
- Necessary welfare measures for the care and attention of the elderly and aged persons.
- Welfare measures for the handicapped and physically challenged.
- Implementation of learning projects for the youth and for their personal development.
