[HWPL] 21 Global Legal Experts and the Birth of the ‘DPCW': Together for 'Cessation of War and World Peace'


[HWPL] 21 Global Legal Experts and the Birth of the ‘DPCW': Together for 'Cessation of War and World Peace'

Members of HWPL International Law Peace Committee

Through the founding of the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the global "Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)", a novel solution for peace has sprung forth which has drawn eyes of the world. 21 global legal experts have contributed to the creation of the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW, which is the solution for peace in a world tainted by conflict and which can bring about an end to the Korean War through denuclearization.

During an overseas peace tour led by HWPL Chairman Man-hee Lee, legal experts of different nationalities and religions gathered. Those who commended this 'international law for the cessation of war’ proposed by Chairman Lee centered their work of peace around the DPCW and became one, transcending border, creed and race for peace that mankind has only dreamt of.

Notable figures include the "father of the Bangladeshi Constitution", former Attorney General Dr. Kamal Hossain, who graduated from Oxford University with a doctoral degree in International Law, works as Barrister and Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh and ensured that the will of Chairman Lee was embedded within the DPCW. He has also made a significant contribution to his own peace work and recommended his student, Dr. Mohammad Nazrul Islam (Professor of International Law, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh) to finalize the drafting of the DPCW.

In addition, leading legal experts were encouraged to participate in the founding work of the DPCW.

President of the World Jurist Association, Dr. Franklin Hoet-Linares (Venezuela) personally reviewed the draft DPCW and delivered his feedback. He vigorously urged for the adoption of the DPCW as a resolution by the World Jurist Association. Pravin H Parekh, President of the Indian Society of International Law, and Dr. Fathi Kemicha (Tunisia), member of the International Law Association and the United Nations International Law Commission (ILC), both actively participated in the creation of the DPCW and throughout the advisory process.

The 21 legal experts who contributed to the drafting of the DPCW include: President of the International Law Association (ILA), Professor Said El-Dakkak (Egypt); former Chief Justice of Nepal, Kedar Nath Upadhyay; former chairman of the Arbitration Institute of the Finland Chamber of Commerce, Gustaf Möller; Secretary General of the International Law Association (Brazil), Arnaldo Sobrinho de Morais Neto; Professor and lawyer of international human rights, John Kirk Boyd (USA); and Professor of International Law at the University of Lisbon, Manuel de Almeida Ribeiro.

The DPCW is an acronym of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War that was proclaimed by Chairman Manhee Lee of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) to an audience of 30,000 youth from 130 countries on May 25th 2013.

[Food] Saeu-ganjeong (Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Shrimp, 새우강정)


[Food] Saeu-ganjeong (Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Shrimp, 새우강정)

Any dak-ganjeong (Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Chicken, 닭강정) restaurant in cities near the East Sea of the Korean peninsula cooks Saeu-gangjeong (Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Shrimp, 새우강정). Fishermen by the East Sea catch lot of shrimp, and that's why deep fried chicken restaurants in cities by the East Sea sell deep-fried shrimp too.

No one knows who invented saeu-ganjeong but everyone knows that deep-fried shrimp covered with sweet and spicy sauce tastes greater than common deep-fried shrimp :)

A few days ago, I visited Sokcho (one of the cities by the East Sea coast) and visited the Deep Fried Food block of Daepo Port in Sokcho. Daepo Port is famous for its seafood and it also sells many deep fried seafoods. There's one deep fried shrimp place that I love to frequent :)

Deep Fried Seafood Place

Saeu-ganjeong (Sweet and Spicy Deep Fried Shrimp, 새우강정)

They don't peel shrimp shell, they deep fry the whole shrimp including its head, legs and tail. The deep fried shrimp shell  gives an even crispier texture, which goes well with a sweet and spicy sauce.

If you ever visit cities in the East Sea coast, go to a seafood market and try saeu-ganjeong please. I'm so sure that saeu-ganjeong can be one of your best deep fried foods :)

Bon Appétit!

[HWPL] "Good News for Mankind": Leading Dignitaries Share their Opinions of the DPCW


[HWPL] "Good News for Mankind": Leading Dignitaries Share their Opinions of the DPCW

The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) is an international law drafted by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee, which is comprised of HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light) Chairman Man-hee Lee and global legal experts, to be enacted for the cessation of war. It contains groundbreaking content that excludes national interest and fundamentally prohibits religious conflict. This section summarizes the reactions of international law scholars who participated in the drafting of the DPCW, as well as citizens of every country who were introduced to the DPCW.

Ali Abu Diak, Former Minister of Justice of Palestine

"It (the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War) is considered a culmination for all International Conventions and Treaties to which the State of Palestine has joined and committed itself to, and is intended to renounce armed conflicts and to stop wars and is an important turning point for the protection of Human Rights regardless of nationality, residence, gender, race, religion or language.”

Fathi Kemicha, Member of HWPL International Law Peace Committee

"Chairman Man-hee Lee said that it had to be completed by March, so I prepared this declaration with great effort and am releasing it today. I thought it would take several years, but even the international law members are really surprised that the declaration has been published in six months. Above all, I have tried hard to put the will of Chairman Man-hee Lee in this declaration. In the future, we will make every effort to ensure that this international law is introduced through the United Nations."

Nachiket Anil Dave, Attorney of Supreme Court of India

"I am very happy to know Man-Hee Lee, the chairman of such a wonderful organization which is a platform for world peace. Watching the proclamation of the DPCW today, I thought that world peace can become a reality. Seeing the chairman produce these results through his unremitting efforts gives me faith that he can achieve world peace. Today, this declaration will be remembered as a very important day for future generations."

Given Lubinda, former Minister of the Ministry of Justice of Zambia

"We have a mission to widely publicize the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). Peace for all can be achieved if we, who attended the WARP Summit, ourselves connect more people to this peace network."

Cardigua Lorient, Judge of the High Court of Rwanda

"The proclamation of the DPCW was a really great event. Our world is experiencing many conflicts, and HWPL is an important organization that teaches people around the world how to achieve peace. We will actively share what we learned from this event throughout Africa."

Pravin Parekh, Member of HWPL International Law Peace Committee

"Today will be remembered as an important day in an effort to achieve global peace. We will adopt the DPCW through the United Nations."

H.E. Ivo Josipović, Former President of Croatia

"The DPCW created by HWPL is a well-crafted document that can bring about an end to war and peace. The DPCW cannot be presented to the UN right away, but if it is actively reported, the presidents of each country will also sign it and bring it to the United Nations for international law."

Verónica Macamo, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of the Republic of Mozambique

"I believe that peace can be achieved through the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) and I hope that all nations will be able to attain peace not only for our future generations but in our current generation as well.”

Anna Cervenakova, Member of HWPL International Law Peace Committee

“Peace is closely connected to the protection of human rights, as human rights can be exercised only in a peaceful a free environment. Armed conflicts, acts of terrorism, unlawfulness, present unprecedented mobility of people leaving a place of armed conflict, injustice and violations of human rights represent a threat to the very essence of peace. HWPL with its proposal of Declaration on Peace and Cessation of War is preserving the culture of peace.”

[Food] Yeolmu Kimchi (Young radish kimchi, 열무김치)


[Food] Yeolmu Kimchi (Young radish kimchi, 열무김치)

Yeolmu (Young radish, 열무) originates from Palestine. We don't know when it came to the Korean peninsula, though I personally think it may have come via the Middle East and China by silk-road traders. Yeolmu means 'young radish' in Korean. It has grown bigger with a wider stem and leaf for a tastier tender and crispy texture.

It's harvested from June to August when Korea endures its hot summer. Naturally, yeolmu provides its best taste in summer. Koreans make spicy, sweet and refreshing yeolmu kimchi with spicy chili seasoning and fermentation. Yeolmu is usually made with plentiful juice and seasoning, and people love to eat cold noodles and barley rice with it.

The uniquely tangy, spicy, sweet and refreshing flavor of yeolmu kimchi is distinctive from other types of kimchi that are made in autumn and winter. Yeolmu kimchi is known as kimchi for the hot summer, I have hardly met any Korean who dislikes yeolmu kimchi in the summer hot days. It goes well with barley rice, though my personal favorite is yeolmu kimchi cold noodle :) Its taste harmonises well with any kind of cold soup noodle with its juice.

Yeolmu is full of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, saponin and dietary fiber, and also has collagen and anti-oxidant stimulants. I can confidently say that yeolmu is one of the most flavorsome weight loss recipes :)

How about making some yeolmu kimchi if you are going through an arduous summer? I'm sure that yeolmu kimchi will soothe your body and soul :)
