UK Women and Youth gather to support the International Convention on the Cessation of War
London, UK – On 13 November 2015, the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) hosted the ‘IWPG Peace Forum’ to urge the implementation of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace at Clothworkers’ Hall in London. The Forum mainly discussed the role of women in the implementation of the International Convention and was attended by numerous women leaders.
“Only when we become one in heart and gather our efforts to urge for peace, we can do so much more than we do separately,” said Ms. Nam Hee Kim, Chairwoman of the IWPG. She underlined the integral role youth and women play in achieving peace. “When we raise active awareness on how crucial the implementation of the Convention on the Cessation of Wars is, this initiative will be unstoppable by any forms of authority or wealth. Let us all become messengers of peace and speak up for the implementation of the Convention in one voice.”
The IWPG Peace Forum was followed by a Media Conference where journalists from well-known media organizations, such as BBC Arabic and Arab Telegraph, attended. The conference provided an opportunity to explore peace campaigns and projects that Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) and the IWPG have initiated. Six journalists and four women leaders were appointed as HWPL Publicity Ambassadors, pledging to accurately and widely report on the work of peace.
HWPL Chairman, Mr. Man Hee Lee delivered a closing speech at the Model United Nations (MUN) conference at the University of Oxford
On 15 November 2015, at the University of Oxford, HWPL Chairman, Mr. Man Hee Lee delivered a closing speech at the Model United Nations (MUN) conference , underling the significant role youth of this generation can play. “If we wish to permanently end all wars and armed conflicts, youth and woman should act as watchmen of each state, overseeing the progress of the International Convention on the Cessation of War to ensure global peace.” This year’s Oxford International MUN was the largest and most prestigious conference where key world issues were discussed and participants could listen to illustrious guest speakers from across the globe.
Having encountered the harsh realities of war crimes against youth first hand, Chairman Lee strongly appealed to the audience and all individuals – “Even before their precious lives fully blossom and receive proper education, should youth ever be forcibly taken away from their mothers and be trained and used as tools to satisfy the greed of others? We must compensate for the lives lost in the midst of all conflicts by providing access to education, especially regarding various peace initiatives to those who are still forced to carry out non-peaceful activities in the world.”
Prior to the events above, Chairman Lee and the HWPL Peace Delegation met with HWPL International Law Peace Committee members and renowned international law scholars to discuss the 2nd draft of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts, the core initiative of HWPL.
Muslims have been prejudiced to others in connection with the terrorist attack including last week’s Paris terrorist attack. While sharing comments by Mohammed Ali, I want us to know that not every Muslims are terrorist.
The word ‘Islam’ means ‘peace.’ The word ‘Muslim’ means ‘one who surrenders to God.’ But the press makes us seem like haters.
Terrorists are not following Islam. Killing people and blowing up people and dropping bombs in places and all this is not the way to spread the word of Islam. So people realize now that all Muslims are not terrorists.
Of course, the overwhelming majority of Muslims are not terrorists or sympathetic to terrorists. Equating all Muslims with terrorism is stupid and wrong. But acknowledging that there is a link between Islam and terror is appropriate and necessary.
The name Muhammad is the most common name in the world. In all the countries around the world – Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon – there are more Muhammads than anything else. When I joined the Nation of Islam and became a Muslim, they gave me the most famous name because I was the champ.
HWPL’s Monument to the Success of the WARP Summit, erected in El Salvador
[ Advancing the Light of Peace: HWPL Peace Event ]
On November 10th 2015, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) caught the interest of those who seek peace by unveiling a Peace Monument and establishing a Peace Park in Santa Tecla, where the scars of civil war are yet to be healed.

The world-renowned peace activist, Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, and Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim of the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) were invited to attend and graced the occasion with their presence.
This historic event in El Salvador is the fruit of the efforts of Chairman Lee, who has been traveling around the world, tirelessly calling for peace since the proclamation of the Declaration of World Peace two years ago. Mayor Munguía, and the citizens of Santa Tecla, volunteered to build the Peace Monument and collaborated with HWPL to take a new leap toward bringing peace in their communities. HWPL’s Peace Monuments are being erected in many parts of the world, including the United States, the Philippines, and South Africa, and are the symbols of the realization of sustainable world peace.
Prior to his trip to El Salvador, Chairman Lee visited Los Angeles and attended ‘Advancing the Light of Peace: HWPL Peace Event’. He met with international heads of state, religious leaders, media, and youth to speak about the urgency of a united, global commitment for HWPL’s two initiatives: an International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts and the Alliance of Religions through its WARP (World Alliance of Religions’ Peace) Office meetings. Educators and community leaders in LA presented the importance of including religious dialogue into school curriculum, expressing their commitment to work with HWPL to incorporate HWPL’s peace-building initiatives into their classroom.
The 12-year civil war that took the lives of over 80,000 people, ended with the peace agreement between the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) and governmental forces in San Salvador in 1992. However, human rights violations and increasing violent incidents continue to plague the region, making it known as the number one city in the world for homicides.
Moving forward from the pain and suffering of the past, El Salvador, meaning ‘Savior’, is taking this unprecedented event as an opportunity to be at the forefront of leading the WARP Office events and supporting the implementation of the Convention on the Cessation of War. The City Council of Santa Tecla have also designated September 18th as HWPL Day to annually commemorate the momentous 1st Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit in Seoul, South Korea – which produced the finalized first draft of the International Convention by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee.
Chairman Lee and the HWPL Peace Delegation will travel to London, UK to hold further discussions on the 2nd draft of the International Convention with renowned international law scholars and experts.
