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.
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.
The Boundary Peace Initiative represents people of diverse backgrounds officially brought together in 2002 because of mutual concern for the rise in world conflict.
Their mandate is to participate in multilateral non-violent conflict resolution in support of global human rights, ecological and environmental sustainability and international law through education, sharing of information, dialogue and activism locally and globally.
The well-attended meeting received greetings from recently elected Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor and re-elected Councilor Christine Thompson. Responding to the greetings BCSIPC Coordinator said that BPI and BCSIPC looks forward to working with Mayor and Council to reinstate Grand Forks as a member of Mayors 4 Peace and maintain its status as a Nuclear Free Zone.
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.
Soon after HWPL brought peace message to Africa on August, HWPL announced that ‘2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit’ will be held in South Korea from the 17th to the 19th of September .
This, the 4th anniversary of the summit, will run under the theme of “Collaboration for Peace Development: Building a Peace Community through the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).”
During the 3 days of the 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit 12 formal meetings and 3 informal meetings, for a total of 15 conferences, along with a press conference will be held.
The main agenda of these meetings will be the introduction of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) to the United Nations (UN) as a binding resolution and the promotion of international cooperation among individuals from all levels and sectors of society for the peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula through the DPCW. In addition, plans will be discussed and established regarding how to draw support from current heads of state for the introduction of the DPCW as a UN resolution. DPCW was created by international law experts for building the peace world without the war.
Along with the discussions of the WARP Summit, the ambassadors also expressed their support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War.
“If there is an answer to peace, every family of the global village born in this era should become a messenger of peace. It is our responsibility to put an end to war and make sustainable peace a legacy for future generations.”, Chairman of HWPL, religious leader and peace advocate Man Hee Lee take as a message to the people.
Since the Declaration of World Peace was first proclaimed on May 25 2013, HWPL has worked on its international law initiative to draft an instrument for all States to adopt that ultimately promotes a culture of peace and ceases all wars. This Declaration not only encapsulates and supports all of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals but also serves as a foundation for future peace activities for its implementation at all levels of society.
Political and social representatives in Africa and Middle East were gathered to discuss international cooperation for peace building through a series of events held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia including the “Ethiopia Peace Conference” on August 15 with education experts and civil society, the “Addis Ababa Summit” with political leaders from Africa and the Middle East and the “Open Dialogue with Religious Leaders” on August 16.
This series of peace conferences is organized by an international peace NGO called HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light) under the UN ECOSOC along with representatives from various sectors and organizations in Ethiopia.
According to a statement released by the Department of Public Relations “On the 15th, groups of youth and women will talk about the ethnic or regional conflicts that have been continuing until recently and discuss the legalization of peace necessary for harmony and reconciliation among nations. The host organization, HWPL, is proposing the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) as a resolution for establishing a legally binding law for peace that can fundamentally prevent war and conflict.”
“On the 16th, there will be a forum for interfaith dialogue to promote a network among Christian denominations to be one under the meaning of the scripture and the 2018 Addis Ababa Summit to strengthen a cooperative partnership for regional stability and peace by reaffirming the importance of the implementation of an international/internal law for peace.” the statement stated.
Over 15th to 16th days, HWPL had the time to sign for the support of DPCW with participants from all walks of life. DPCW was created by international law experts for building the peace world without the war. During the two-day peace tour, participants at each event pledged to support and urge the DPCW for sustainable peace.
The Chairman Lee ManHee of HWPL, who held the summit with Ethiopian leaders during the 29th Peace Tour, emphasized the importance of peace movement to work as one in which each stratum came together, saying “If there is an answer to peace, then any family of the global village born in this era should become a messenger of peace, ending war and making sustainable peace a legacy for future generations.”
The DPCW deals with the international cooperation to institutionalize and culturally develop peace and cessation of war through the cooperation of world legal experts by HWPL. In this Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War covers the develop friendly relations between nations, prohibit the use of the forces, respect of the international law, foster religious freedom, and spread a culture of peace.
The Chairman of HWPL following a peace tour to the United Nations in May, said “We should also write a letter to the president to support the Implementation of international laws for the cessation of war. It says that the people have all the power of the state. That’s why the president has no reason to refuse what the people want.”. And the Chairman presented a role of civil society for peace and urged them to join peace activities.
Imagine – John Lennon
Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
“Imagine” by John Lennon is the best-selling single within his whole career. It reminds us of peace in our busy daily lives. The song is about the world without any barrier or division of religions, but full of peace. It is difficult for us to think about the world peace deeply if we don’t have any experiences related to war or conflicts. By listening to this kind of song motivate us to think of peace actually, even just for short time, only 3~5 minutes.
What I really want you to know is that It is not difficult for us to think peace. Small actions can bring up us closer to peace!
Teens who are Jews, Muslims and Christians get together for peace.
The group Hands of Peace, based in Chicago, had a farewell celebration on July 29. They wanted the young minds to help overcome the divisive political history in the Middle East in a conflict that has been bubbling over for more than 70 years and bring ideas for peace.
Now in its fifth year, the Hands of Peace program brings together 46 Israeli, Palestinian and American teens for a summer leadership conference that centers on daily conversations and team-building exercises to break down the walls of hate, prejudice and misunderstanding.
Sunday’s celebration was the first time the participants had an opportunity to share their experiences with an audience, which was made up of several hundred donors, host families, volunteers, parents, alumni and community members.
With the help of skilled facilitators, the high schoolers spent their mornings involved in deep dialogues about their feuding nations. Their afternoons were spent doing activities like rope climbing, cultural exchanges in the kitchen and visiting churches, mosques and synagogues together. At night, they stay with their American host families.
Near the end of the program, all of the participants gathered on stage to sing songs of peace. As they sang and swayed together, each teen held up a piece of paper on which they wrote the one word that described their experience in Hands of Peace. The words, some written in Hebrew and Arabic, included: New, change, love, proud, friends, growth, empathy, acceptance, powerful and peace.
There was time for the kids to be kids but they also worked on learning, listening and growing as empathetic human beings. It’s the next generation deciding how to end a decades old war with their futures on the line.
The stakes for these teens are high. It could be dangerous back home for some of the Middle Eastern teens if word got back that they were engaged in peace-making activities with the “enemy.” To protect their privacy at Hands of Peace, most used only first names and could not be photographed. Most group activities and all of their often-heated group dialogues were off-limits to everyone but the teens and a few adult facilitators.
Sunday’s keynote speaker was Gretchen Grad, who founded Hands of Peace 15 years ago in Chicago. San Diego is the only other city where Hands of Peace takes place but she hopes to expand the program to other U.S. cities.
Grad said the participants learn to listen to other ideas and ultimately realize that behind their religions, ethnicities, nationalities and political beliefs they’re all alike and want the same thing: peace and prosperity for their families.
Second-year participant Marwan, a 17-year-old Christian Palestinian from the West Bank, said “Every day that passes someone will get killed and his family will have the same terrible feeling that I do.” And he said “We should put an end to the bloodshed because with peace comes freedom.”
