“Hello. I’m Ji-in Gu. Mr. President, Please listen to my story. Stop the painful kidnapping, detention and endless assaults in 44 days.”

On January 18, 2018, a flower fell to the ground in a pension in Korea. The late Ms Gu, who had a lot of dreams and had a lot of career ahead, was only 25 years old. In my first posting, we looked at the story of late Ji-in Gu, who seriously violated human rights despite human’s desperate efforts to protect human rights.

We still have two questions. Why did she have to die of suffocation? Why did parents keep their adorable daughter in custody?

The Answer is…  ‘Religion’ 

Report on the Freedom of Religion in the World

  • A STEP TOWARDS PEACE New York times Human rights: #RememberGu #2 USCIRF Universal Declaration of Human Rights UDHR Religious Freedom Conversion Pastors Coercive Conversion Programs CCK Korea

In the Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom.’ How much freedom of religion is being guaranteed in human rights?

According to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) ‘s report on religious freedom in 2018, 16 countries classified as “countries of particular concern” include North Korea, as well as Burma, China, Eritria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Syria and Vietnam. Terrorism, murder, slavery, rape, incarceration, forced migration, coercive conversion, intimidation, property confiscation, women’s alienation, and ban on religious activities are still happening in these countries.

New York times Human rights Ad on 28 November, 2018 ‘Ban Coercive Conversion Program’

In Pakistan, for example, 1,000 girls are kidnapped and forced to change religion every year. Usually, girls in religious minorities, sometimes teenagers are kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam, and marry kidnappers or his accomplices. The daughters are forced to be educated in captivity, and when the police come to them, criminals who kidnap, detain and assault her are evading all legal responsibilities because they are her husband, her family. That’s why her parents can never see their daughter for the rest of my life, even when her parents went to find daughters with the police. Therefore, Human rights activists around the world spoke out wholeheartedly, but the criminals were hiding behind the name of religion.

Present State of Coercive Conversion Programs

‘The 1,000 victims of coercive conversion..
77.4% of them have sever trauma’

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE New York times Human rights: #RememberGu #2 USCIRF Universal Declaration of Human Rights UDHR Religious Freedom Conversion Pastors Coercive Conversion Programs CCK Korea   Even in Korea, the country of Kpop, where religious freedom was stipulated in the Constitution, violations of religious freedom are taking place. The reason why Ms. Ji-in Gu had to die of suffocation is ‘Coercive Conversion Programs‘. The reason why parents kept their adorable daughter in custody is ‘Coercive Conversion Programs‘. All things were because of illegal coercive conversion that allowed kidnapping, incarceration and murder in the name of religion. Was there a parent who wanted to kill his beloved daughter? Nope. Someone else must be behind all this. They are the ‘coercive conversion pastors’ who ordered everything and asked for lots of money.

Coercive conversion pastors instigate anxiety of parents and use their love to manipulate them behind. At the dictation of pastors, parents handcuffed her hands and feet, lock her in a pension and force her to convert. This is how they get away with the law. Through the coercive conversion program, one Christian Council of Korea (CCK) minister even received up to $894,425 USD, for their guidance.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE New York times Human rights: #RememberGu #2 USCIRF Universal Declaration of Human Rights UDHR Religious Freedom Conversion Pastors Coercive Conversion Programs CCK Korea

According to Human Rights Association for Victims of Coercive Conversion Programs(HAC), The victims of coercive conversion programs numbered about 1,000 from year 2003 to 2017. 96 victims were confirmed in the first half of this year alone. In a survey of 900 people from 2003 to March 2015, 52 percent of the victims were imprisoned, 42 percent of them were taken to coercive conversion program by kidnapping. It was even reported that 10 people were hospitalized in psychiatric hospitals for not being converted. More seriously, their pain didn’t end there. 77.4 percent of the victims felt extreme fear caused by a violent environment. And 65 percent of the victims suffered from mental disorders and stress due to the coercive conversion program.

After Kim was beaten to death by a hammer (by her husband) in 2007, Ms. Gu made a petition to the president, but nothing changed. As a result, Ms. Gu died of suffocation on January 18, 2018. Then, 1 year anniversary has come, and the sad thing is, nothing has changed. The voices of her friends keep ringing in my ears. “She petitioned the president for help, but nothing changed! and she died! Will you take action after I die!!!”

The Cry of the World’s Human Rights Activists

There is widespread condemnation of the human rights abuses of coercive conversion program all over the world. Ms. Gu’s death resounded through the world. The 221 U.S. media outlets including NBC, Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), and ABC has reported extensively on the human rights issue under the title of ‘South Korea: The Olympic Games Amid Large-Scale Human Rights Protests.’ In Korea alone, there were countless protests and 120,000 citizens from each cities participated nationwide for human rights. Religious groups and politicians from all over the world hold rally voluntarily to denounce the coercive conversion program of the CCK Korea. And U.N. headquarters and Washington condemn it as an act of giving religion a bad name. Korea’s dark truth was covered in about 600 reports in 41 countries.

“Recently, very recently, one young lady was killed by a hard attack while she was taught by a preacher who converted her religion by compulsion. My condolence please accept on this tragic loss of the young lady. It is too bad that this accident happened among Christians who spread the spirit, just as the spirit of love.
Who are these people? Are these people pure for their religion? They are religiously violent and extremists.”

With nearly a year approaching, protest rallies against the violation of religious freedom continue from Los Angeles to South Africa, France, the Philippines, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco, and the world’s media poured out many reports. Thanks to an advertisement in the New York Times on the tragic death of Ms. Ji-in Gu, human rights activists’ voices have became louder. After hearing the unfortunate news, Ms. Jenifer (New York) began a fund-raising campaign through the GoFundMe. So the New York Times ad on 28th November can be possible. The sad news is that Ms. Jennifer, who started the fundraiser, died of cancer and the Jennifer’s family took the money to run an ad in the New York Times. Because it is her wish.

Do you know WARP Office? In the short three years from its official beginning, the WARP Offices have seen rapid expansion with 218 offices now operating in 126 countries. With approximately 2,500 representative religious leaders as participants, it enhanced the level of understanding of, and harmony between, various religions. Do you know what culture was created? Religious leaders want to seek true peace-building and harmony among religions based on correct understanding. And they dedicated themselves to thoroughly researching what a “trustworthy scripture” should contain.

1) Good and Evil
2) Birth, Aging, Sickness and Death
3) The Spiritual Realm
4) Cleansing of Sins
5) History and Genealogy
6) Prophecy and Fulfillment


1&2 HWPL Intercontinental Online WARP Office 

On 24 March 2018, the first Intercontinental Online WARP Office Meeting was held. The topic of this WARP Office meeting was “What is the root of evil and how can we eliminate evil? Where does it come from? How can we eliminate it according to your respective religion?” The religious leaders, who participated in meeting, were specially selected as outstanding leaders at worldwide. It made it easy for anyone to be able to see and participate in audience questions by broadcasting their discussion. It is also designed to promote WARP offices to religious societies and civil society, and to spread the culture of seeking truth.


“When the light of heaven shines in the hearts of people, it becomes the light that never fades away.” – the Chairman Man hee Lee


One Netherlander said, “It is amazing that people from different religions can meet and communicate with each other about peace. I think peace and harmony of religions can be achieved as we continue to do this work.”

The Story of WARP Office

Seeing the current status of the religious war, HWPL thinks the solution of peace. ‘How can we make it?’ The answer they found is the Scriptures. Because it represent the accumulation of not only the spiritual and moral teachings of the respective faiths, but also a fundamental standard of human conduct.

Why Scripture? Although the common objective that all religion is the great things, these messages are often overlooked by people. Because religious people fight with each other first. They showed hostility and started a war. So peace is becoming an elusive concept. So HWPL approach towards the root cause of this hostility between faiths, defined as the misunderstandings that arise from the misinterpretation of these scriptures. Eminent religious experts recognized it as an ‘Innovative Approach’. The alliance of religions is the earnest hope of all humanity.

DPCW : A Definite Solution to eradicate Coercive Conversion

Right to choose

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE DPCW : A Definite Solution to eradicate Coercive Conversion standup4humanright Religious Freedom Religion of Peace Human Rights Day DPCW coercive conversion program Coercive Conversion CCP
NY Times advertisement on 28 November

A person at birth can not choose a country by himself, but he has a right to choose a religion. But in some countries, someone has to trade life for one’s belief. The countries that have been under religious persecution are the China, Iran and Myanmar. Some countries have civil wars because of other religions. This led to the loss of many precious lives.

Even in Korea, where religious freedom is believed to be guaranteed, two people have already died of coercive religious conversion program. More than 150 people a year suffer human rights violations during coercive conversion program. What’s worse is that more than 1,000 victims were confirmed. There must be a good reason to keep her religious beliefs under life-threatening coercive conversion program(CCP) and her choice deserves to be respected. Human rights and security of minority religious people are not protected against those who are inclined to kill them.

Because they can’t admit the faith of minority religious people. Moreover, narrow religious discrimination, that believes only his religion and doctrine are right, causes serious religious extremism and drives all the world into terror and violence beyond some regional conflict.

International efforts to promote
religious freedom

As a result of these, 80 percent of the wars that panicked the world in fear are religious wars. If you are a religious person, you should have to work for peace and prevent war. Instead, the fact that religious people are more at the center of the conflict is shameful and it means that they have no qualification as a religious person.

Despite international efforts to promote religious freedom, restrictions on religious freedom and religious discrimination are still on the rise around the world. To solve these problems, a strong international law is needed to eradicate religious discrimination and ensure religious freedom.

The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) presented by HWPL, which has become a key issue in the international community, has a provision for freedom of religion. The solution for sustaining peace is to enact an international law (10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW) to end war and implement it to the letter.

DPCW Article 8 – Freedom of religion

States should activate and participate in systems to enforce and protect fundamental human rights, eliminating discrimination on the basis of religion or belief, and should refrain from and prohibit the usage of religion by governments, groups, or individuals in order to justify or to incite acts of violence against others. (omitted below)

DPCW Article 9 Religion, ethnic identity and peace

  1. Recognising the threat to peaceful coexistence that violent religious extremism may cause, states should implement, in good faith, legal measures against individuals or groups attempting to perpetrate or assist in gross and systematic acts of violence in the name of religion. (omitted below)

If the leaders of every country love their country and their people, they have to sign the International Law for peace. To do this, we must complete peace with the spirit of that moment when the United Nations begins.

– Article 2 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR)

A New York Times advertisement space on November 28th dealt with women human rights issue. I will introduce you to New York times Human Rights News!

On November 25, it is the ‘U.N. International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women‘. It was the day in 1981 when three sisters of the Dominican Republic protested against the dictatorship of the government. The Day was started to remember that sisters were killed by violence, and many people from all over the world including Spain are participating in demonstrations and holding campaigns. Despite these efforts, a 25-year-old woman died in a pension in Korea on January 18, 2018.

Why did she have to die of suffocation when she had so many dreams? Why did parents keep their adorable daughter in custody?
# New York times Human rights

Human Rights is still alive?

Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings. It’s the right to live like a human being. The Article 1 of UDHR, ‘All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood‘, shows the spirit of human rights. Human rights should not be discriminated against for any reason, including race, skin color, sex, language, religion, etc. UN http://www.un.org/en/sections/issues-depth/human-rights/index.html

The United Nations Charter confirmed people’s beliefs about basic human rights and promised to keep this human rights. To make sure that we keep this promise, we have to define ‘what human rights are and what freedom is’ that everyone can understand. It is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which is now the most recognized.

Thus, on December 10, 1948, 50 of the 58 member states of the United Nations declared the Declaration of Human Rights in favor of it. This was unprecedented in human history. Therefore, “THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.” http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/

But despite these efforts, there are still many incidents of serious human rights violations.

On December 30, 2017, a 25-year-old girl left her friends with a message saying, “I will travel with my family.” Then on January 18, 2018, she returned to us as a ‘cold and blue corpse‘. According to one friend’s testimony, the late Ms. Ji-in Gu was a ‘nice friend who spent time with his family when she was busy and she had many dreams and was so passionate.’ And her friend continued “I’m so sorry and angry. I miss her terribly.” She was imprisoned in a pension in South Korea. After a scuffle with her parents, she was presumed to have choked to death.

There is a message left by Ms. Gu in her lifetime. “Hello. I’m Ji-in Gu. Mr. President, Please listen to my story. Stop the painful kidnapping, detention and endless assaults in 44 days.” Yes, that’s right. It was not the first time that Ms. Gu was kidnapped and detained. She was imprisoned for 44 days in a monastery on June 2016 and she had a really painful time both soul and body. I mentioned it in my posting, but a year later, nothing has changed. Maybe she’s crying in the sky.

“She petitioned the president for help, but nothing changed and she died. Will you take action after I die?” said Ji-in’s friends.

You can feel the depth of sadness in their memorial songs.

Want to be a warm star to people swaying in the night winds
Born as a flower, you always said you would be a star

Want to give them warm warmth, who bear heartaches
How lonely you are in the darkness, not open even when you pat.

Even in our dreams, we meet again.
Because always we dream the same dream.
You’ll pray for us in the sky

To you now being a star,
The beloved in tears give you a white flower that has your scent
We’ll meet again in the sky

You and I are glittering in longing
Even when you close your eyes,
you didn’t let your desire go
Now we’ll make sure your wishes come true

There are still two questions left in this poignant story. Why did she have to die of suffocation? Why did parents keep their adorable daughter in custody? Let’s look at the next posting. # New York times Human rights

H.E. Emil Constantinescu 2018 Interview with Media #3

Emil Constantinescu Biography


World War 2 (1939-1945)
: The most devastating war in human history

A child became a refugee by the terrible war.

Poor living conditions were hard to bear for the refugee boy, yet he felt desperate for peace. The boy lived in a town located in [dniester] River of the Soviet Border until the age of 50 under dictatorship. He saw and felt the fall of communism himself, and he became aware of the power of culture. He was in the process of settling the democratic conscious.

In 1996, the boy grew up to become the 3rd President of Romania. Emil Constantinescu became the President in order to achieve peace.

First, he devoted his efforts to bring reconciliation and harmony within the Balkan Peninsula suffering from conflicts of nation, religion and race. He was in the forefront of liberty and democracy of Romania. He has conducted Peace Education to spread peace.
(In fact, he has done more work. More info 1, info 2)


“Introducing the DPCW to the UN is an important
step in the right direction.”
– Emil Constantinescu, former president of Romania


He was the dean of Bucharest University. He spent 6 years of my life in [Bucharest] University and [other] University throughout the world.

Now, he is the chairperson of Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) which is the largest NGO in Europe. Also, he is a member of HWPL Advisory Council.

HWPL (more info) is an international peace nonprofit organization registered with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) and the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It is surprising to the world with its enormous execution and actions no one has heard or seen.”

As of 2018, he is in the forefront to establish a culture of peace, calling for the cessation of war. Now, it is time to begin a new history of peace.

Emil said “I am one of the survivors of this tragic history of Europe that have a deep and sincere empathy for the Korean people, and one of the few that can perhaps intuit what is going on in the hearts of North Koreans across the border.”

Having dreamed of a world without war, he met Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL in 2014 like destiny, and became a partner of peace.

Q. I know that you are actively involved as the President of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization (ISACCL). What kind of organization is it, and with what purpose did you establish it?

(Emil Constantinescu) founded the Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization in order to transfer to Romania the experience and the projects I have undertaken as President of the Academy of Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin, where I had the opportunity to launch “The Levant Initiative for Global Peace”.

The Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization aims to rewrite the history of the Levant, through which we understand a broader space that does not solely refer to the Middle East, but also to Northern Africa, the Balkans and the Caucasus.

Let us rewrite history through the lens of what brings us together, not what sets us apart. This is not an easy feat, because history, as it has been written until now, is a history of incessant warfare, in which the protagonists are the lords of war, not the lords of peace.

The above is an excerpt from full interview


Q. How did your relationship with the HWPL organization begin?

I first met Chairman Man Hee Lee in Germany, at a reception hosted by the Institute and Academy of Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) in Berlin, where I learned of the noble goals that the HWPL had set for itself. They coincided, for the most part, with the goals I had dedicated my efforts in cultural diplomacy to, aiming towards not only the resolution of open or frozen conflicts, but especially towards the creation of a culture of peace through the understanding of the Other, the only way, in my view, to ensure a lasting, durable and sustainable peace.

Q. What do you think of Chairman Lee?

I believe Chairman Lee is a leader in the true sense of the word, which is easy to see in the way he wins the hearts and the minds of the younger generation, in particular because of his destiny: a man who fought in the Korean War which, like all wars, pits man against man; but what is even more striking is that, in the case of the Korean war, it was pitting brother against brother. When youth and women’s associations were established, I think Man Hee Lee astutely picked up on the fact that herein lay the key, as youths are sent to die in wars by populist and ultranationalist leaders with dictatorial tendencies while women during war are not only victims but also suffer for their parents, children and brothers. We must never forget that while 20.000.000 soldiers died in World War II, 40.000.000 civilians, mostly women, children and the elderly, perished in that conflict as well.

Q. I know that you participated the first WARP Summit.

In 2014, I was markedly impressed by the participation of the young people at the events. On the Olympic stadium, there were approximately 120,000 pupils and students, and nearly 200,000 took part in the March for Peace. When I had the honour of holding my speech on the Olympic Stadium, I felt the vibration of the crowd and I thought back to what had happened to the first president of Romania, Nicolae Ceauṣescu, when he attended the festivities organized by Kim Il-Sung in Pyeongyang in his honour. Because I had lived among the students which, during the Communist dictatorship, were forced to take part in events organized following the North Korean model, I had a realisation of how great the fundamental difference is between youth that are forced to attend rallies for fear of consequences that could drastically affect their futures and careers, and volunteers. You cannot fake volunteering, and for me this was the most striking impression of my trip to South Korea, and the main reason I decided to return this year, to attend the fourth anniversary of the 2014 Summit.

Q. What was your impression of the 4th anniversary of the WARP Summit?

Even though this time the rally was held on Incheon Stadium, with only 30.000 participants, I found myself surrounded by the same sincere enthusiasm and the same dedication to peace. Your people are models of solidarity.I think it was an important event not only for Korea, but for the entire world, as it demonstrates once again that the promotion of peace is the only solution, that the threat of war is not the only solution, as happened during the Cold War. In the end, dialogue is the most important.

Q. Do you think the Declaration for Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) will be presented to the United Nations?

The level of publicity surrounding this Declaration, in correlation with the fact that through its signing religious leaders, people in positions of authority, presidents and democratic heads of government are joined by a large number of young people supporting the same ideal, makes it possible that military leaders, heads of state and military subcontractors are made to listen to the voice of the people. I believe the United Nations will indeed accept this Declaration, and I consider it an important step in the right direction because, despite the permanent criticism of UN ineffectiveness, we must keep in mind that it is the only forum that offers a platform for smaller states from across the globe to make their voices heard.

President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi and his cabinet fled to neighboring Saudi Arabia, where a Saudi-led coalition was formed to counter the Houthi rebellion. The Yemeni Civil War started. It is a humanitarian catastrophe. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) estimates that 14.1 million civilians are dangerously close to starvation.

  Total killed                    :         50,000+
  Civilians killed             :            6,592
  Wounded                     :         49,960
  Displaced                        :    3,154,572
  Child died of hunger  :          50,000+

A child dies in Yemen every 10 minutes from preventable causes, including severe acute malnutrition and vaccine-preventable disease. There are many complex problems. With the economy in free-fall, parents cannot afford to feed their children. Also water, health care and sanitation all collapsed.

Yemen Peace Education of Children

 Nevertheless, the children of Yemen wish that the fighting would stop. They have dreams of peace. They want to go to school and play in the park like children of other countries. I am deeply sorry for their story.

12-year-old Ala’a says “Peace means we don’t hear people talk about war. It means on TV I can watch cartoons instead of watching people die.” She teaches us many things. “I would like to tell them, ‘Do not kill our dreams.’ Stop the war so we can enjoy our childhood and achieve our dreams.” It is a real Peace Education. What can we do for them?


“Children have suffered terribly during more than three years of conflict — at least 6,000 have been killed or seriously injured by the fighting, while over 11 million need humanitarian assistance to survive.”
– UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore

Emil Constantinescu Biography


World War 2 (1939-1945)
: The most devastating war in human history

A child became a refugee by the terrible war.

Poor living conditions were hard to bear for the refugee boy, yet he felt desperate for peace. The boy lived in a town located in [dniester] River of the Soviet Border until the age of 50 under dictatorship. He saw and felt the fall of communism himself, and he became aware of the power of culture. He was in the process of settling the democratic conscious.

In 1996, the boy grew up to become the 3rd President of Romania. Emil Constantinescu became the President in order to achieve peace.

First, he devoted his efforts to bring reconciliation and harmony within the Balkan Peninsula suffering from conflicts of nation, religion and race. He was in the forefront of liberty and democracy of Romania. He has conducted Peace Education to spread peace.
(In fact, he has done more work. More info 1, info 2)


+) He was the dean of Bucharest University. He spent 6 years of my life in [Bucharest] University and [other] University throughout the world.

Now, he is the chairperson of Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) which is the largest NGO in Europe. Also, he is a member of HWPL Advisory Council.

“HWPL is an international peace nonprofit organization registered with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) and the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It is surprising to the world with its enormous execution and actions no one has heard or seen.”

As of 2018, he is in the forefront to establish a culture of peace, calling for the cessation of war. Now, it is time to begin a new history of peace.


“The history of humanity was the history of war.
Now we need to make history of peace.”

Emil Constantinescu said his experience under dictatorship. “The establishment of communism in Eastern Europe has led to elimination of constructive competition, removal of free expression and emergence of an immoral form claiming to be a society where ideology replaces feelings.”

“A dictatorship that would only recognize state and collective ownership canceled all forms of rights, free expression and [personal life] of every citizen by political police surveillance.”

The mean of implementation of communism in Eastern Europe is the violence. He told us so vividly. “The result of implementation of communism in Eastern Europe by violent mean, and bloody repression of anti-communist resistance.”

He continued “The removal of actual potential ordinance was achieved through torture and re-education centers, extermination prisons, forced labor camps, political assassinations, summary executions, mass importations.

Millions of death, tens of millions of human life destroyed.

When oppression, censorship, terror seem to ensure a small future for communism, the resulting hardship turned into true pathology of freedom thus building solid characters able to tear apart the status quo.”

He continued “After the peaceful, peaceful change of the totalitarian regime in Eastern Europe, the first democratic presidents freely elected by the people were representative of the intellectual elite.

Coming from academic [unintelligible] was very strange for the political history of the world. And remember, the famous first democratic president of [unintelligible].

The first president of Hungary was the president of a writers union. The first president of democratic Bulgaria was a philosopher who graduated from Sofia university.

The first democratic president of Luthania, Vytautas Landsbergis, was the president of the Academy of Music.

The first democratic president of Estonia was also the president of the Academy of Music, and the second president of Estonia was the director and president of the University of Agriculture and was of special family, because this member of academic [unintelligible], of intellectual elite was not interested in corruption, their interests or their family; they worked for their country and for their people, and for changing Europe, changing the world.”

Struggle Lesson of Sufferings


At cost of thousands lives, they can earn struggle lessons. Emil said “The citizens of the formal communist countries have been deprived of all their rights including their right to live for half a century. They are suffering and struggle lesson is for each of us a first step towards understanding the greater lesson of freedom and respecting each other’s freedom.

The amiliation of the democratic conscious needs more time of democratic lows or institutions.”

He gave a very moving anecdote. (I was the most impressed with this part) “In December 1989, in my country, Romania, young people would demonstrated against the communist dictatorship in the university square in Bucharest.


“Did no ask for bread or for higher wages. They voiced free elections, freedom of the press, freedom we love you, we die for you,
and we will die and we be free.”
– Emil Constantinescu, former president of Romania 


My son, my daughter, my students was at that time in university square in Bucharest. At midnight, the repression troops went in with tanks against the unarmored demonstration who did not threaten any governmental institution but offered flowers to the militaries.

Dozen of people were killed and thousands were arrested and tortured. Those arrested would have be killed too, as is happened five days prior in other university town, Timisoara, in Romania. It not half a million of Bucharest citizens would surround the next day’s tanks, and the symbol of communist regime, the incredible lack of fear, and the solidarity of people for the dictator to free, and freedom was gained.

And in one of history’s bright moments, people were willing to die for the ideas, ideas of freedom and democracy.”

Finally, I am very grateful to Emil Constantinescu for letting me hear and think about many things. Now, I must be a person who does one thing. Will you join us?

On September 18, the two leaders of inter-Korea met in Pyongyang. To support the peaceful unification of the Korean Peninsula, H.E. Ivo Josipović, Former President of Croatia, and Hon. Emil Constantinescu, Former President of Romania, both of whom experienced times under Communist rule and the transition to democracy, gave presentations on September 16th and September 20th respectively. They gave specific advice through their real experience.

In fact, the world is paying attention to peace on the Korean peninsula. You can also feel the hottest ambience by reading the post below.

73rd UNGA paid attention to Peace on the Korean Peninsula

Former President Hon. Emil Constantinescu prepared his speech under the theme of “the memory of the suffering and the pedagogy of freedom”, beginning his address with the memories of life under tyranny.

He stated, “I lived there until the age of 50 under dictatorship. In a country where people don’t have the freedom of movement, you could not leave the country, and you are forced to work and live in a particular place allocated by government- governmental distribution.

The second world war, which affected most Romanian and Korea, called the death of more than 25 million soldiers and more. Over 73 million civilians caused huge economic losses and destruction of the world cultural heritage.

The atrocities of the two wars in the first half of the 21st century proved to be insufficient for leaders to understand that peace cannot be strengthened only by managing frozen conflicts,” explaining the darkest times of Romania.

He then continued by reminding all in attendance of the power of the people who fought for freedom stating, “The incredible lack of fear and the solidarity of people forced the dictator to flee and freedom was gained. In one of history’s bright moments, people were willing to sacrifice themselves for the ideals of freedom and democracy. The answer regarding the future of freedom and democracy is the choice of each generation and, in the end, of each of us.”

He concluded the lecture by proclaiming, “In order to achieve the peaceful reunification of the Korean Peninsula, leaders, politicians and even the youth must have the consciousness to achieve peace.”

Transition from the communist dictatorship to democracy

Emil Constantinescu said “The experience of transition from the communist dictatorship to democracy in Eastern Europe represents a very rare case in the world history, the absence of any ravage.”

But he said “Dozen [sic] of people were killed and thousands were arrested and tortured.” I can’t imagine the pain that other countries suffered. He emphasized “This was the events, the experience, of our transition from the communist dictatorship to democracy which I have tried to present to you sincerely as I have liked directly.” He was well qualified to take Korean students.

He continued “But unfortunately, 100 years after the great union of Romanian lentz in the single state, we are disunited, differences by different groups or individual political of social interest.

We need to rediscover what unites us, our common goal. We need to redefine ourselves in the globalized world by what we are and not what we have.

Only this way, we can preserve our national identity and dignity respecting all other nations in the globalized world.

Thank you for your attention.”

At the final event, an MOU promising further cooperation for peace in the Korean Peninsula and the world was signed between The Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization (ISACCL), represented by its current president Hon. Emil Constantinescu, and HWPL, the international peace NGO.

HWPL’s Chairman Man Hee Lee then delivered his congratulatory message to the audience stating, “In the Korean War, 4 million citizens were killed. Should we continue to point our guns and kill each other more? We must put down our weapons. The two leaders should hold hands in peace without having to feel the need to be noticed by any country in the world. We must achieve the peaceful reunification for the people of our country.”

Hon. Emil Constantinescu, Former President of Romania

“The event which is taking place today at this stadium is mainly addressed to the youth, who do not want to be forced by their countries’ leaders to fight against each other, and the women who would like to protect, not only themselves, despite being innocent victims, but to protect also their husbands, children and brothers from the horrors that any war inevitably brings about. Youth and women can become the most persuasive advisories of peace in the present and in the future.

Both avoiding war and establishing peacebuilding processes require a laborious effort to create a culture of solidarity outlining a pragmatic style in which the statements should followed by effective actions. The fact that so many distinguished representatives of the world’s public opinion, religious leaders, politicians, diplomats and cultural personalities, are today gathered represents such an efficient action.

Differently from 4 years ago we now have more people, are more united, and are more determined to stop the wars wherever they are. I believe that the Declaration of World Peace (More info) proclaimed in Seoul can get everyone around the world, no matter if they are men, women, youth or children, ready to unite under the mantle of peace and take the responsibility to promote the message of peace to the entire world. We are one.

The 4th Annual Commemoration of the 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit was held in South Korea from the 17th to the 19th of September. This year, thousands of leaders and citizens from around the globe will gather for 3 days with the great determination of creating a peaceful world together. Under the theme of “Collaboration for Peace Development: Building a Peace Community through the DPCW”, the wind of peace is blowing all over the world. This 918 WARP Summit is the core of HWPL’s peace movement. The main agenda of the WARP Summit will be the introduction of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) to the United Nations (UN) as a binding resolution.

DPCW is aligned with UN Charter

So far, international law has not ended the war. Likewise, the Universal Declaration does not include a separate article on “Right to Peace”. This is why the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was held. So HWPL is creating a new order for the world. It is DPCW! It can be the Right to Peace. Currently, there is a worldwide campaign to introduce the DPCW to the United Nations. Now, they collected 734,055 signatures (as of October, 2017) and 173,170 people of 176 countries participated. Law experts agreed that the DPCW is fully aligned with the UN Charter & the UDHR and this Declaration not only encapsulates and supports all of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Like proof of this, delegations of Permanent Missions of the UN and HWPL gathered at the Office of the Commonwealth (New York) to discuss the promotion of sustainable peace and human rights, on Friday 7 September 2018. Also, they discussed intensively the way to promote the 918 WARP Summit. Because the walks of HWPL are alignment with the core purposes of the United Nations, the delegations have no choice but to support the DPCW.

Finally, the Last East Germany Prime Minister Lothar de Maizière, who achieved reunification, said (not this year) that “Reunification was the will of heaven. It happens like a miracle when human endeavor is met with internal and external conditions.”

What made you interested in the peace activities of HWPL?

He said “I was browsing the news on an internet portal site when I noticed an article about a region called “Mindanao” and the peace treaty that was signed there. I had never heard of that area before, so I searched the internet and found out about its history and the 40 years of conflict that had plagued the area. It was only recently that peace was achieved in the region, which was accomplished in a large part through the efforts of HWPL, a Korea-based NGO, that acted as a catalyst in the peace process. I was deeply moved by the peace activities done in the name of Korea, as well as the passionate heart of HWPL’s  that can be heard through his shouts during the various events, so I also wanted to join in the work. It is amazing to see how a private organization is doing the things that the UN was unable to accomplish. Since then, I started to run a blog and quietly joined in HWPL’s peace activities.”

How did you become a part of the HWPL Supporters One?

He said “I was working alone to promote the work of HWPL through my personal writings and blog activities when I was suddenly contacted by HWPL one day and recruited as an HWPL Supporters ONE blogger. I heard that the purpose was to work together with those who support HWPL’s peace efforts with the intentioHWPL’s peace effortsn of promoting this year’s World Peace Summit to the world. Of course I agreed. Even though we didn’t know each other it was nice to have the opportunity to come together and work side-by-side for peace. It truly feels like a family.”

What would you like to say to those who want to join the Supporters ONE?

He said “I don’t think peace is a story that is far away from us. If you look at the news on the internet, there should be no more news of war and terrorism that is occurring around the world. Unless peace is achieved, we, our children, and even our future generations, cannot escape from the threat of war and violence.

However, it is not the work that anyone can do alone. You and I, together with the voices and opinions of many others, must come together and join forces for peace. Through this I believe that we can protect our world from war and terror. I hope more people will join the Supporters ONE and run together with the hope of peace. Peace is something that we can achieve.

I have read his interview many times. His words and writings really seem to love peace. I felt like I should try harder.
