For Reunification of Korea

  What the era is it now? North Korea is constantly threatening with nuclear weapons, and there are still wars everywhere around the world. Someone’s family dies, and those who survive are screaming. On November 25th, 1,200 social representatives gathered at the “1st Peace Conference of Religious Leaders in Southeastern and Southwestern Regions for the Reunification of Korea” Their purpose is to discuss spreading a culture of peace and preparing action plans for the peaceful unification of the two Koreas in Daegu Metropolitan City, South Korea. Although peaceful events are considered to be a good cause, it is easy to criticize them for being only symbolic. But No need to worry!

Practical and substantial HWPL

  It is because HWPL which hosted this conference has been evaluated as a practical and substantial peace group. It is understandable even though you know a little bit about their movements. Chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) which is under the UN ECOSOC and the organizer of this conference gave a message. Chairman Lee proposed the formation of a civil society network at the global level, as well as the legalization of the 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) and the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Offices(WARP Office).

We are one nation and one people. Why is it that we cannot step on our own land? I also cordially ask all citizens to become peace messengers to achieve international peace as a whole.” – Chairman Lee

Social & Religious leaders cry out

At the conference, Gi Woong Son, President of the Korea Institute for National Unification, advised that we should open the eyes and ears of the people in North Korea with the values of freedom, democracy, human rights and welfare. Emphasizing the role of civil society, he said “Consistent efforts for reaching North Koreans through humanitarian approaches including religion, culture, art, sports and the environment should be carried out. These areas can avoid transferability of capital misused for military capabilities of the North.

 Ven. Bup Ryun, chief priest at Kumdang Temple, pointed out that religious leaders are responsible for leading the work of peace and that one way of engaging in such a task is through HWPL’s World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Offices which promote the collective peacebuilding efforts by religions. “Now is the time religious leaders stand at the front for peace, a long-cherished wish of all humanity. The wall blocking religions will collapse as a result of our efforts of understanding based on a comparative study of religious scriptures.

Priceless legacy of peace

  Education is a powerful and effective source of human development, as specified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Have you ever experienced the power of education? Have you ever seen their changes? Or have you ever experienced your changes? Education is closely related to change. What should the Education do? In order to protect and further enhance the priceless legacy of peace from great wars and consequent sacrifices, education must guide students to understand values such as human dignity, equal opportunity, democracy, etc.

Article 10 Spreading a culture of peace

Peace Academy

The students who received peace education from HWPL are creating this place into a world of peace as “messengers of peace”. The HWPL Peace Academy teaches Peace of Mind based on dignity of Life. It is the best education that every human being is more valuable than the whole universe, isn’t it? How great DPCW Parade is!

HWPL’s peace education ensures that the youth acquire knowledge and skills needed for the promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence.”

Peace Education of HWPL

  117 schools from 8 different countries (as of July 2016) voluntarily became HWPL Peace Academies. The designated Peace Academies announce the Statement of Resolution and their future plans to incorporate peace education into their curriculum. It will teach about HWPL’s peace initiatives. HWPL’s comprehensive approach to education allows teachers and students to embrace the values of human rights, intercultural and interreligious understanding, and tolerance. It is really needed for global leaders who want to reconcile. Whether you get the peace education or not makes fundamental difference. It depends on you.

Peace education : Blooming Flowers of Cessation of War in Fiji

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

What a beautiful peace day!

In Fiji, the hibiscus is blooming at children’s hands. The hibiscus is the national flower of Fiji. Fiji is an island country in Melanesia. Fiji’s main attractions to tourists are white sandy beaches and aesthetically pleasing islands with all-year-round tropical weather. In peace education, children of Fiji stick flowers on the picture of the tank which symbolize war and conflict. Why? They wished for achieving peace in the world. Children don’t know nothing. They know it clearly. Maybe they know it better than us, adults. “Peace is good and war is bad.” Very simple. Maybe, we don’t need other things, social, economic and political issues, complex and chronic problems. We must keep our children’s heart.

  I think peace is having tolerance, respect and love each other. By loving each other and respecting each other we can find how we can stop fighting in the classroom too.– Salemba, one of the students.

Peace education : DPCW Article 10

  It is the reason why children can study peace. Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), an international NGO under the UN ECOSOC and UN DPI, held a peace event “Blooming Flowers of Cessation of War in Fiji” on October 24th at Yat Sen primary school of Suva in Fiji. This lesson really helps children and students understand each other.  All of these things is from DPCW, which is an international law to cease the war. Article 10 of DPCW is “Spread a Culture of Peace” Recognizing the global threats posed by nuclear, HWPL International Law Peace Committee suggested the DCPW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War) on March 14, 2016.

This was a step forward to create peace enviroment among students. Teachers, we, have to use positive ways to create or maintain peace environment in the classroom. I think peace activities hosted by HWPL like today is beneficial for students. We need to give them reminding every now and then.” – Mrs. Chandra, a teacher of Yat sen primary school

DPCW Article 9 Religion, ethnic identity and peace

  1. States should engage in multilateral consultations to deal with situations where differences attributable to religion or ethnicity pose a threat to peace so that necessary remedial action may be taken and to identify the root causes of a situation causing tension between different religious or ethnic groups, in order to adopt necessary measures to promote mutual understanding between the groups concerned.

2. States should take measures to ensure that religious belief or ethnic identity are not utilised as a pretext for gross and systematic acts of violence. In circumstances where individuals or groups perpetrate or assist in such acts in the name of their religion, states should take adequate measures that lead to the prosecution and punishment of such activities.

3. 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. Such measures should, in extreme cases, include the proscription of faith groups – including sects or cults – that perpetrate acts of violence against the territorial integrity and political independence of any state.

The very work that we are pursuing is the work of healing of nations. Once implemented, this Law will be engraved in the hearts of many people to have a peaceful life. Chairman Lee

Article 8 – Freedom of religion

2. 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. These systems should include, inter alia, judicial mechanisms.

3. States should foster religious freedom by allowing members of religious communities to practice their religion, whether publicly or in private, and by protecting places of worship and religious sites, cemeteries, and shrines.

Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim text of a speech

Imagining the world without war, it’s like utopia that causes excitement within our hearts. We have gathered here to make what we do most, the reality with our own hands. This is because we have clear solution to peace. You play the main role for cessation of war and world peace. This will become greatest achievement left for the future generation.

For long time, world has been struggling from war. As long as there are wars, we can’t expect peace for mankind.

HWPL Peaceful Day

We have clear way of hope. 10 articles and 38 clauses of declaration of world peace and cessation of war is the answer that has been integrated to all the peace activities. I’m sure that even in the future, there will not be more certain answer for peace. the existing international law is build that minimizes the damages due to wars and had been limited in terms of not being able to prevent wars. However, DPCW is truly an answer for peace that is able to solve full causes of war.

Since the declaration was made, IWPG along with members around the world was holding peace campaign and advocacy campaigns. Continuously along with UN women’s groups. We have been working for implementation of international law.

Just as there is the role of father and the role of mother in a household, there is a point of task given to people for each sector in order to make world peace in reality. In particular, for those who wants peace, being heart of a mother becomes a lifeline that can achieve world peace. The moment the women become into tremendous power possessing is the moment they become mother.

Ordinary people’s ordinary peace

Half of the world population is women. Chairman Lee believes the strength of women. And, we all able to achieve our objective.

If women unite and bring wars to an end, we are able to bring legacy of peace to the future generation. This is true role of women who must take on as mother of this earth. I hope more women participate in an international society and let us gather support for the implementation of international law. All the women are here.

Please, join the advocacy campaigns for the implementation of international law. So we don’t have to be embarrassed to hold the tile of a mother. We have the strength to lead all mankind to world peace. Let us all achieve peace together. And leave world peace as a legacy for the future generations.

Doing good better : Apply to Peace Movement

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Doing good better : William MacAskill

  It is a book of altruism. Have you ever think about good will? Sometimes I want the world to change better, don’t you? If so, I take an example. One man want to do something for children of the Third World countries. He get great ideas! ‘A wheel pump‘ He imagine children romping with water. This project received worldwide attention. It raises large sums of money. They can supply lot of wheel pumps to the Third World countries.  So, what happened? Doing good better?

It is really uncomfortable

Many international organizations point out the flaw and families of the Third World complained. It is very ineffective than hand pump. The project suddenly went to smash. Although efforts are great, It’s a big waste of time and money.

Effective Altruism can change the world

  A practical, data-driven approach to doing good makes a tremendous difference. Not only charity, It can apply to peace movements. This book throw a question. “How can I make the biggest difference I can?” Like this question, if you cry out peace, all peace movements are not effective and practical. We should measure this impact accurately. There is an peace movement that is highly acclaimed at home and abroad. HWPL‘s peace movements are very practical and substantive. DPCW(Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War) is already declared. Now, presidents only have to sign up. Or come up with something better.

“The challenge for us is this: How can we ensure that, when we try to help others, we do so as effectively as possible?”  – Doing good better

A World Leader : HWPL’s Solution

 

Now the world today, we need to make sure that we establish world peace without war. So we can leave that world peace to the generations afterwards.

We were traveling around different places around the world. This work of peace was spoken up everywhere we went to, going to colleges and doing the work of peace even in Mindanao. There was also political leaders in Mindanao who came and met me also in Manila to ask to do this work of peace.

The earth is so vast and so big. Up to today, there wasn’t an answer for the work of peace thou. Furthermore, the only grew was the weapons of that massive destruction. So, this is why we as a family of this world and peace former and current presidents, law enforcement, regular citizen and religious leaders made an agreement in front of gate of peace came to 3rd WARP Summit in order to achieve peace and declare international law. this is very implementation.

We’ve called heaven and earth as witnesses to WARP Summit. In front of God and people in the world, we made an agreement to declare international law and unite religions. Also, the heads of organizations from each country made an agreement to urge implementation.

10 articles and 38 clauses has to cease wars across the globe and make peace. If you think these articles cannot make cessation of war, you must have alternative. If not, it has to be implemented right away.

People who raise the children must not lie.

  We sent this declaration to all different countries saying if we do this way, there will be cessation of war. There could be peace said out of accomplish. What other reason do we need?

If this document is approved and okayed, within UN and general assembly, they probably vote on it. And when they vote on it, 1/3 of them are okayed, it can be adopted.

  Immediately and very quickly, we have to work on for every nation and leader to sign up international law to implement and the declaration of 10 articles and 38 clauses. We all need to work together. While everybody else is working bled out, and you are being selfish, Is this equitable? It’s not somebody’s personal matter. No matter what, regardless knowledge and power, the urgent matter is cessation of war and world peace. If we hand down peaceful world without wars to our future generations, that would be the best present for them. So distinguished guests, you already have an answer. Now, we need to take an action to it. – chairman of HWPL
