[HWPL] Nations of Korean War and HWPL. Serial Posting 2. United Kingdom


[HWPL] Nations of Korean War and HWPL. Serial Posting 2. United Kingdom

Year 2020 is the 70th anniversary of the Korean War which scarred the whole Korean peninsula in the 20th century. Two ideologies (democracy and communism) clashed on a small peninsula as 21 countries fought for the ideologies they followed and more than 50 countries helping one side with medical or financial support. All people struggled for the peace that they believed in, resulting in more than one million casualties. Today, Chairman Man Hee Lee and his peace groups (HWPL, IWPG and IPYG) are working together with people throughout the world for sustainable world peace. I begin these serial postings recalling the Korean War, paying respect to all those who fought and sacrificed their lives in the Korean War, and inform you how Mr. Man Hee Lee and his peace groups (HWPL, IWPG and IPYG) have been working for world peace and for future generations :)

Every week, I will write about one country that participated in the Korean War and how the country has been working together with Chairman Man Hee Lee and these peace groups for world peace :)

Today's country is the United Kingdom.

The United Kingdom dispatched 81,000 soldiers and suffered more than 3,600 casualties (including those missing and POWs). The UK was the second country to send reinforcements among countries of the UN. The 27th Commonwealth Brigade that included Australian soldiers, who were enjoying peace in Hong Kong after World War 2, were suddenly sent to the Republic of Korea with no knowledge of a 'southern Korea' but they fought bravely in spite of low supplies. It is said that the UK lost many more soldiers in the Korean War than in any other wars they later engaged in (Falklands War, Iraq War and Afghanistan War), but it is an almost forgotten war in the UK. In 2020 today, there are less than 2,000 Korean War veterans in the UK.

Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light), who is also a veteran of the Korean War, underwent all kinds of cruelty and hardship in the Korean War and has been working for world peace since 2012. The UK also participated in Chairman Man Hee Lee's global peace work and with his peace groups (HWPL, IWPG and IPYG). Many people in the UK have been working together with these peace groups on the implementation of the DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War), May 25th Peace Walk, World Peace WARP (World Alliance of Religions' Peace) Summit, WARP Office for Interfaith Dialogue and the Legislate Peace campaign. Moreover, in 2015, Chairman Man Hee Lee and the HWPL International Law Peace Committee held a meeting in London to further the 2nd draft of the DPCW, and Chairman Man Hee Lee also delivered a powerful speech to youth on world peace at the University of Oxford.

I'm certain and hopeful that people in the United Kingdom will keep working with Chairman Man Hee Lee and HWPL for world peace and a brighter future for future generations as they have done so far :)

  1. This is a very hopeful article - thank you for sharing. I wish I could have met Chairman Lee and his peace delegates in 2015. I live in the UK but was unaware of HWPL's peace work at that time. I hope that the chairman's message of peace will spread to the ends of the earth!
