[HWPL] Short Intro into HWPL's Peace Journalism



[HWPL] Short Intro into HWPL's Peace Journalism

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 regarding HWPL's Peace Journalism :)

[HWPL True Story, Peace Newsletter] HWPL’s ‘Peace Journalism’ awakens awareness among international journalists

There is an entity that has great influence on achieving world peace: the media. The media sometimes deals with information that can escalate conflicts and disputes, and on the other hand, it also plays a role in providing decisive clues to achieving peace.
If the media only conveys information about war and conflict rather than content about peace, what will inevitably result is war and strife. Accordingly, the role of the media must be determined in a way that helps achieve world peace, and all journalists around the world must join forces to achieve this.

There is an organisation that reminds us of the mission of journalists for peace. Last year, the global private peace organisation Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL, Chairman ManHee Lee) gathered journalists from around the world to conduct an international media workshop and discussed the specific role of journalists for peace.
