HWPL DPCW‘s 10 Articles and 38 Clauses Parade, which consists of the key principles stated in the DPCW, expresses how the world of peace has come. Despite the long history of humanity, a perfect peace hasn’t yet to come. When tens of thousand people come together with a common goal, that goal beginsto achieve. And I believe what is happening here is in this place.
World peace and restoration has begun at the same time this declaration is proclaimed. Thank you. – Chairman ofHWPL

Do you remember ‘Alan Kurdi‘? You already know it. He appeared dead on the beach. While trying to go to Europe to avoid civil war, his mother(35) and his brother(5) were drowned. Then all the world wanted to help Syria refugees.
Do you remember ‘Omran Daqneesh‘? He was rescued after being buried in collapsed buildings in Syria Aleppo. One pictureshockedpeopleall over the world. He was sitting in an ambulance with stained with blood and dust. I cannot repress my astonishment.
Bana Alabed, who broadcasted the current situation in real time, is also same. She got 233,653 followers. Her first words were “I need peace”. It was retweeted over 1000 times.
This three children informed the world of the misery of the Syrian civil war. They changed world’s movement for Syria.

Three Things Looking Forward to at the WARP Summit 2017
Last year, I posted ‘2nd Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit 2017’. I encounter with HWPL first. In fact, I want peace but I always think ‘Is it really possible?’. But I can’t give up! I find and find. Then, I see the ‘2nd WARP Summit 2016′. 100,000 people gathered. WARP Summit can be divided into three part.
First. Conferences and Forums.
Second. “Peace March”-themed world parade and traditional cultural performances.
Third. “War and Peace“ cards section performances.
How about this Year?
And I’m really looking forward to 3rd WARP Summit 2017! This time, what new things they show? I really like their ‘Heavenly culture‘. What is it? It is to live according to the principles and values of heaven, a place that gives light, rain and airwithout boundaries. I upload it beneath. Sounds promising, right? Never pass up this chance! Come with me!
WARP Peace Summit are offering religious leaders a chance to lead people in the world building up peace by declaration of peace law. – HWPL
We need practical and substantive approach for peace. It is not a small thing, Peace. In the world there are many peace movement to achieve peace. What can we do? Actually sometimes I don’t know what to do. But my heart is still strong. I have full of mind for peace! I know we are same. So, I find out what we can do! I find “Peace Messengers Together”
HWPL’s “Peace Messengers Together”

Vision of Peace law : Step by Step
‘Legislate Peace Campaign‘ was active to present DPCW to the United Nations.(campaign page) Now 300,000 people is moving fast. For Peace! Finally, they call on world leaders and governments to develop and enforce a law based on the principles of the DPCW. They are passionate and strong. What happened for a year? ‘Legislate Peace’ was started from 2015 May. How many people are participated in?
100 Nations 200 Cultural Events 100,000 People
174 Countries 715,625 People sign up!
Why ‘Legislate Peace Campaign‘? It is based on Article 10 “Spreading a culture of peace” I write it at the bottom. Actually the effect of culture is very powerful. It affects you unconsciously. To change the world was difficult, but that’s the easy bit. Why difficult? Why easy? If you want to change the world, it is hard. But if you change yourself, it is very easy!
DPCW Article 10 “Spreading a culture of peace”
1. States should recognize and engage with groups and organizations that seek to further the cause of peace as a global movement. States should facilitate such groups in their awareness-raising activities, including providing tuition in human rights and peace studies, as provided for, inter alia, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the 1999 UN Declaration on a Culture of Peace.
2. States should recognize that, in order to preserve a lasting culture of peace, public awareness of the need for, and value of, peace should be created. In this regard, states are encouraged to facilitate activities, commemorations, and initiatives that engage public consciousness with peace, including the erection of peace monuments as an alternative to war monuments.
3. Heads of state and heads of government should acknowledge that they are uniquely well placed to encourage a culture of peace, and should act to support this declaration to bring about the cessation of war.
4. States should promote a culture of peace including ensuring conditions in which-
(a) citizens are able to participate in the political affairs of the state as equals regardless of religious or ethnic differences;
(b) a free media is maintained which allows grievances to be aired and addressed;
(c) education is imparted to promote respect and mutual understanding among different religious, belief and ethnic groups;
(d) the right to development of peoples, including the achievement of the UN sustainable development goals, can be realized; and
(e) the well-being of all human kind with the participation of women and men to ensure peaceful coexistence amongst nations, states, and peoples may be guaranteed.
It is really a shocking news. I have had an eye on Nobel Peace Prize candidates because I have a lot of interest in peace. What news? 7 members of ‘White Helmet‘ were killed by unidentified armed men. I don’t know how many. They were shot in the head. Do you know what it means? “Execution” What kind of crime? The international community is angry. It is even more because 7 members are private volunteers who worked tirelessly to save lives in an extraordinarily dangerous environment. We should make it as an opportunity. 7 Dead White helmet is not dead.
The best way to commemorate their deaths is to follow their will. It is unnecessary to talk many things. If we don’t do anything, we should be more angry. So, what is their will? White helmet is made up of Tailor, bakers, carpenters, electricians and other over 3,000 people. Their goal is to save anyone hurt. They claim to advocate moderation. Eventually, what theymost wanted is peace. “A world free from wars” Anton Chekhov said ‘We shall find peace. We shall hear the angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds’I didn’t want their death to be in vain. Dead White helmets must be alive in our heart.
How we can do it?
HWPL’s Two wings : IWPG & IPYG
We already know that war settles nothing and to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.(AgathaChristie) Actions are necessary now, not words. We should really achieve peace. I want to recommend ‘HWPL‘. “Groundbreaking and substantive” solutions of HWPL is impressive. The chairman of HWPL said “We have the answer to achieve Peace” HWPL‘s SOLUTIONS are ‘International Law for Peace and Cessation of War‘ and ‘Alliance of Religions‘. (more info) and other postings

Although I didn’t eat a lot of rice, this impression is really feeding my soul. Did you listen passionate shouts? We are one!!!!! Cry out for Peace!!! The energy in the field here is amazing!!! I want to be with you.
HWPL chair man : Man-hee Lee
If the current international law is perfect, we didn’t legislate an international law. All young men want peace, not war. Everyone should agree this international law proposed in the UN.
Not bring peace to someone who stand still. We have to make peace. If incumbent presidents aren’t doing works of peace, future generations would have a bone to pick with presidents. In Peace! We Are One!
Religion should be one and country, global village should also be one!
Nothing can stop the orders of the sky and it is the hope of mankind. I come here everything behind because Solution of Peace is here! Mothers are hope for peace! If you believe in a can-do attitude, you can do it!
Bad leadership stop change, but also start a war and violence. Youth is awakening! If we work together, we can make a better world. Although a stumbling block is here, we have a hope! We count on Lee’s leadership! Youth!!! has your hope!!!
HWPL is working in conjunction with the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG). Let’s walk with me!
