[HWPL] HWPL's Main Initiatives 1



[HWPL] HWPL's Main Initiatives 1

Chairman ManHee Lee is the head representative of the global peace organization HWPL (Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light), which is striving for the enactment and implementation of the international peace law 'Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)'. The  DPCW is a legal instrument comprised of 10 articles and 38 clauses that can end wars and hostilities throughout the world. HWPL is also spreading a culture of peace and implementing peace education.

Chairman ManHee Lee experienced the cruelty and tragedy of war as a veteran of the Korean War. This is one of the reasons why he founded a global peace campaign as the head of HWPL. He has traveled the globe more than 35 times to meet and persuade politicians, legal experts, journalists, professors, peace activists, civil organization leaders, heads of tribes and others to unite them for the work of peace. The significant fruits borne out of his hard work are the World Alliance of Religions' Peace (WARP) Summit and HWPL Peace Committee. The DPCW was drafted and finalised by the HWPL Peace Committee.

How, you may wonder, do I know this? About 10 years ago, when I had just been discharged from military service, I came to know HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee while researching the topic of civil conflicts to satisfy my curiosity in ongoing global issues. At that time, the island of Mindanao in the Philippines was suffering from a major civil conflict that lasted more than 40 years, and Chairman ManHee Lee and HWPL resolved this conflict through non-violent means.

Chairman Lee brought an end to the conflict in Mindanao by holding a peace talk between the warring Catholic and Islamic groups. Before the talk, HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee held a Peace Walk to spread the culture of peace in Mindanao with the many locals who had gathered out of a desire for peace.

Chairman ManHee Lee's pressing appeal today is that humanity unites for sustainable peace in order to pass on the legacy of peace to future generations worldwide. He doesn't just talk peace, but has worked tirelessly for it through practical peace campaigns for over a decade.

I decided to become a supporter of HWPL and Chairman ManHee Lee's peace initiatives because I also desire a world of peace for all posterity.

Today I'd like to introduce an article from HWPL official homepage regarding HWPL's main initiatives :)

Support from Government

Five countries – Seychelles, Eswatini, Comoros, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Vincent – have expressed their support for the DPCW at the national level. High-ranking leaders of eight Pacific Island countries announced a follow-up agreement, and the National Assembly of Ecuador prepared a letter supporting the DPCW.

Support from IGOs and Former Heads of State

Former Prime Minister Said Musa of Belize formed the Coalition of Caribbean Leaders for Peace (CCLP), a group of former presidents and prime ministers of the Caribbean Community member states, to support the adoption of the DPCW at the international level, and the group is expanding its advocacy activities. Also, HWPL signed a memorandum of understanding with the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), the legislative body of the African Union, to cooperate on peace work. The International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus, whose members are former heads of Eastern European states, signed the Goseong Agreement to work together for the implementation of the DPCW, and the Central American Parliament (PARLANCEN) passed a resolution in support of the DPCW. Former and current national leaders of Pacific Islands countries signed the HWPL – Pacific Islands Comprehensive Agreement on Advocacy for the DPCW to actively advocate the declaration.
