[HWPL] HWPL expresses deep concern over Human Rights Crisis in Myanmar

Chairman Man-Hee Lee of the global peace group HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light) issued a statement on the current human rights crisis in Myanmar that was caused by the Myanmar military coup.

Chairman Lee wrote that there must be no casualties resulting from violence and that it's very wrong to use violence on peaceful rallies and oppose the will of the people of Myanmar.

Chairman Lee also urged Burmese authorities to seek a peaceful resolution through dialogue as world history will remember their deeds. Chairman Man Hee Lee also appealed to the international community to jointly work with HWPL to stop the ongoing crisis in Myanmar.

What follows is a full statement by Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL.

HWPL Statement on Human Rights Crisis in Myanmar

 We, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), express deep concern over the situation in Myanmar, which has caused casualties and posed grave threats to human rights.

The recent efforts of the Myanmar military to suppress nonviolent protests have led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries. The number is still continuing to increase.

Human life must not be disregarded in any circumstances. No conflict of interest can justify violence against civilians, and no interest of any group can prevail over human life.

Using violence to suppress peaceful protests and silence voices for change is contrary to the will of the people of Myanmar. Authorities should respect people's human rights and freedom of expression. We call on all relevant parties in Myanmar to express regret at the ongoing situation and engage in dialogue to seek a peaceful resolution. We are confident that the international community will support this effort, which will contribute to security and peace not only in Southeast Asia but also in other parts of the world.

We, HWPL, along with our members all over the globe are deeply concerned about the harm caused to civilians by the escalating violence in Myanmar. International attention is focused on Myanmar, and history will remember these moments. The situation should be resolved in a just and peaceful way also for the sake of the growing generation, who will learn from this crisis to build their future. We call on all parties to refrain from repression or force and instead settle the crisis through dialogue and consensus based on mutual respect and understanding. And we call on the United Nations to take active measures so that the human rights and safety of the people of Myanmar may be protected.

We ask the global family of peace to issue statements urging authorities and civilians in Myanmar to pursue dialogue and seek a peaceful solution in order to restore peace to the country.
In one voice, HWPL and all our members around the world express hope that the ongoing crisis in Myanmar will be resolved peacefully through dialogue, not violence, and we call on the international community to join us.

and HWPL members around the world

Following HWPL's statement on the human rights crisis in Myanmar, reports from numerous  global media outlets were made via broadcasting centers, news agencies and online news platforms.

As a member of HWPL Supporters One, I truly hope the human rights crisis in Myanmar is resolved in a peaceful way.

  1. All people and organisations should support HWPL's work of peace. The DPCW is the only way to prevent such tragedies from recurring. In the words of HWPL Chairman Lee, “The 10 articles and 38 clauses have to cease wars across the globe and make peace. If you think these articles cannot cease wars, you must have an alternative. If not, it has to be implemented right away.”✌
