Mankind must put an end to WAR, or WAR will put an end to mankind.
-John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy is the 35th president of the United States, born in 1917.. He was a veteran at the World War II..
I think this peace quote is truly from the person who go through the WAR…
horrible… wretched War indeed..
So No matter what the reason is, WAR shouldn’t be allowed!!
Oh.. this quote reminds me of DPCW.. I wanna introduce the Article 1 of DPCW
“Prohibition of the threat of use of force”
1. States should solemnly reaffirm that they refrain from the use of force in all circumstances, save where permitted by international law, and should condemn aggression as constituting an international crime.
2. States should refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of military force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations Charter or international law in general.
3. States should prohibit any act or threat of violence, whatever its motives or purposes, that occurs for the advancement of an individual or collective criminal agenda.
4. States should abstain from interference in the internal conflicts of other States.
Peace is not maintained by force. It is only by understanding. – Einstein
We need the culture of Peace, Understanding Each other..
How to understand each other?? It is the conversations! “WARP Office” is one of the efforts for achieving peace. The WARP Offices are spreading to the whole world. There are Online WARP Office which you can watch online, “Youtube channel”.
I recommend subscribing it and watch these videos of the channel.
During the roundtable discussion with the Senate Foreign Relations on June 11 2019, Senior White House Advisor Ivanka Trump speaks about why more women should get involved in the process of making peace.
The roundtable was joind by Republican Sens. Jim Risch and Shelley Moore Capito, Democratic Sens. Ben Cardin and Jeanne Shaheen and U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Mark Green and officials from the State and Defense Departments.
Trump said firmly “When women meaningfully participate in peace negotiations, the likelihood that the resulting peace will endure more than 15 years increases by 35%.”
Her reasoning behind the argument was that they help lead more effective arguments. Participants supported Trump’s idea describing the strategy bringing both social justice for women around the world and national security for Americans as well.
“The United States has a great deal of influence around the world, and we can make a difference on this equation, and if we change those metrics to be much more balanced, I am very confident we’re going to have a more stable world, and U.S. national security will be protected by that.” said Cardin.
In order to achieve improvements in those two realms, Trump announced the Administration has hired a Director of International Organizations to work on the strategy to making more women join in the peace process. She also said new metrics would be announced to track progress from various development agencies within 90 days.
According to a research conducted by the United Nations, women made up just 2% of meditators, 8% of negotiators and 5% of witnesses and signatories in major peace talks from 1990 to 2017. Although women take up half of the whole population, the number of women involved in making world peace possible is significantly small. With more number of women being involved in the peace process, the future of world peace would be much brighter.
I’ll tell you about the 25th of May Peacewalk Event every year. 🙂
The May 25th (525) Peacewalk is an event to celebrate the Declaration of Peace announced by the HWPL Peace organization that is an international peace NGO affiliated with the UN ECOSOC and the UN DGC.
Since HWPL made the Declaration of World Peace in 2013, this year already marks 6th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace.
Let’s learn about HWPL’s activities to achieve world peace from now on.
This year’s most notable activity!
<My peace letter>
HWPL sent a handwritten letter to to the heads of states and UN ambassadors in 193 countries asking them to support the peace law, which is DPCW!
Instead of asking for support for the vague law, I wrote a handwritten letter urging them to support the DPCW, a substantive law that would end the war and achieve world peace.
There are currently no substantive laws in the United Nations that end the war.
On the contrary, in the great world, there are abuses of the law.
So HWPL, after considering and studying a substantial peace law to supplement the current law with the world’s Supreme Court justices, came up with a law called DPCW Article 10-38.
I’m currently sending letters to the head of states of each country urging them to support the law so that the Peace law could be put to the United Nations.
Under the current law, measures will be taken through DPCW 10-38, which includes measures to prevent, end, and even prevent war, breaking the law on peace that was not effective!
The HWPL is engaged in various activities to promote the peaceful world. One of the projects of HWPL I wanna share is a peace education.
Thanks to this, more and more countries are launching Peace Education with HWPL. (Cambodian Ministry of Education Launched Peace Education Committee in Cooperation with an International Peace NGO Cambodian ministry of education launched peace education committee)
CHED and HWPL Promote Spreading a Culture of Peace in the Philippines and Globe
I’m looking forward to how culture will change when our children, who will lead the future generations, realize the importance of peace through education.
the world for peace!! DPCW, Law for peace!!
We need your support.
A lot of couples go to South Pacific island for honeymoon! The reason why the South Pacific island is so popular is because of the charming appearance of the peaceful and leisurely island. Did you know that the island also has a history of terrible conflict?
Solomon Island is located in the upper part of Australia next to Papua New Guinea Island. Solomon Islanders, who looked very peaceful, were unhappy because they thought that the nets laid by the people of Papua New Guinea were no longer catching fish.
Discovered that Papua New Guinea had a lot of natural resources in the mid-1990s, however, many global mining companies became very interested in Papua New Guinea. And not only business, but also the nation noticed the islands. But at this time, Australia, located near Solomon Island and Papua New Guinea, became interested and checked.
Australia’s method of checking was to directly support the Solomon Islands. Australia used bad feelings between Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islanders. Solomon Islanders bought weapons and began to arm themselves as warriors with the money they received, and the conflict between the two islands began to grow. The conflict is resolved now, but it shows that conflicts can build up and create complex conflicts in even quiet and peaceful islands.
In addition to these single examples, border conflicts, religious conflicts, and tribal conflicts are found all over the world. Strife, conflict, and war all come in different forms, but the beginning could begin with one tiny benefit. Our small or big actions could solve conflicts; such as having open-mind, understanding each other, writing a peace letter, supporting the Peace movements. All I want to ask you is keeping thinking about what I could do for our better future and trying to resolve conflicts!
HWPL in 2018
HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light) is a peace NGO under the UN ECOSOC. HWPL journey of peacebuilding in 2018 evaluated results included many countries supported HWPL’s Peace movement and declared official support for the DPCW (the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War).
HWPL in Philippines
On February 8, in Philippine a grand peace festival entitled “We are one for Peace to attain Sustainable Development” will be held to launch nationwide peace movement throughout the country’s State Universities and Colleges.
This event is expected to have 30,000 participants including social representatives in the Philippines and international peace activists including the organizers – Volunteer Individuals for Peace (VIP) by Dr. Ronald Adamat, CHED’s Commissioner and Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL.
The highlight of this peace event is to give inspiration of citizen participation in peacebuilding. Cultural performances will represent harmony under peace beyond differences in ethnicity, religion or nationality. Also, the principles of peacebuilding will be introduced DPCW.
“We should think of how we can achieve peace. It should start by teaching peace to the youths,” emphasized Mr. Lee in his last visit to the Philippines. As a representative of HWPL, Mr. Lee, a Korean peace activist and Korean War veteran will visit in February to advocate global cooperation for peace building.
PeaceEducation & MOU with various countries during the WorldPeaceSummit in Korea
The world’s passion for peace is heating up due to the popularity of HWPL’s peace education. At the ‘Peace Education Development Forum for Global Advancement’ that was held during the 4th Annual Commemoration of the September 18th World Peace Summit, HWPL signed an MOU with the Ministries of Education of Sri Lanka, Colombia, Guatemala and Iraq. This clearly demonstrates the rapid spread of the culture of peace as stated in Article 10 of the DPCW.
The DPCW will be recognized as the true answer to peace and will be passed as a legally binding instrument. It tells us to achieve a world of peace is no longer a dream and to sign of the peace MOU with HWPL now is necessary.
We should think of how we can achieve peace. It should start by teaching peace to the youths – Chairman Lee
The B.C. Southern Interior Peace Coalition (BCSIPC) met in Grand Forks on Oct. 27 with delegates, supporters and guests attending from Kelowna, Nelson, Castlegar, Grand Forks and Slocan. Delegates represented the Kootenay Region United Nations Association, (KRUNA), the Union of Spiritual Communities of Christ Working Groups (USCC), the Kelowna Peace Group, Kelowna KAIROS, Voice of Women for Peace (VOW) and the Boundary Peace Initiative (BPI) Grand Forks.

A message of greetings from NDP MP Richard Cannings (South Okanagan West Kootenay) was received with applause. Canning wrote: “To be among people who live and breathe the work of peace (oh yes, it is work) is uplifting, and I’m sorry to miss it. Your work matters. It is important work, even though at times I’m sure you feel you are banging your collective heads against a brick wall. Believe me, if people like yourselves did not work to advocate, educate and inform your community and your elected representatives, who would? You are passionate about the need for peace, and willing to do the hard work required for peace, and for that, I thank you. I thank you on behalf of myself, and on behalf of those who don’t know of you and your work.
The next conference of the coalition will take place in the West Kootenays in April 2019.
