On 6th of June, 2018, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted the resolution 2419 (2018) to call on increasing the representation of young people. The resolution was crafted to recognize the role youth could play in conflict prevention and resolutions while “advancing sustainable peace” and “spreading a culture of peace.”
In order to develop the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) into a legally binding form, it is essential to raise awareness and mobilize support from heads of states and nations. To that end, the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) has been urging the heads of state and government officials for their support by delivering Peace Letters written and gathered through youth and civil organizations.
Youth, holding a pen instead of weapon
Youth of 23 countries have participated and the handwritten peace letters have been delivered to 9former/current presidents and prime ministers in 8 countries.
In particular, as Korea still remains the only divided nation in the world, Korean youth have been writing to mayors, lawmakers, prime ministers and the president of Korea with a hope that the DPCW will realize peaceful reunification on the Korean Peninsula. About 165,782 letters have been collected so far (as of Feb 2019)
What is the difference between existing international law? The biggest problem with international law at present is that it is not legally binding. Therefore, DPCW includes the direction of legally binding and legal force.
The existing international law contains elements in which a powerful nation can create disputes along its interests. According to Article 1 “Prohibition of the threat or use of force” and Article 3 “Friendly relations and the prohibition of acts of aggression”, States should abstain from interference in other States, whatever its motives or purposes. And States should condemn the illegal occupation of territory and should criminalize in their domestic law.
10 Articles of the DPCW consisted of “Conflict prevention (Article 1~5) “, “Conflict mediation (Article 6~7)” and “Securing sustainable peace (Article 8~10).” Conflict prevention encourages states to cooperate in gradual disarmament, repurpose weapon-manufacturing facilities for the benefit of humanity. And don’t invade. When there are interstate problems, the state itself decides its own fate.
How can do the DPCW mediate Conflict? Through the UN Security Council, the International Court of Justice, other judicial bodies, regional judicial arrangements, the DPCW will settle disputes. Then you may be able to ask this question. “How can international peace be maintained through the UN Security Council when the UN Security Council is now composed primarily of powerful nations?” But the DPCW involves changing international organizations like the United Nations Security Council to function properly.
Lastly, Securing sustainable peace is important for future generations. Religion is the most important part of people’s ideology. In other words, this is a factor that can cause conflict among people. In fact, it accounts for 80 percent of the causes of war. Therefore, religion should be united, and religious leaders should take the lead in the peace movement. And through peace education for young children, it creates an eternal culture of peace.
The answer is “Civil Society!” That’s why HWPL works with IPYG and IWPG. Peace comes when all citizens around the world are watching. The President cannot ignore the people. The owner of the state is the people, and the president is not at his disposal because the people vote. When citizens around the world shout in one voice, in one direction, nothing can ever ignore it. A national leader can’t help but keep up with the citizens.
The HWPL is where 1.8 billion Youth and 3.7 billion Women gathered to achieve peace. So, in order to achieve the ultimate goal of implementing a legally binding international instrument based on the DPCW, HWPL is encouraging states for the submission and adoption of the document at the UN General Assembly. It must get votes in favor at least two-thirds of the 193 ambassadors of the United Nations member states.
Already, UN permanent representatives of 145 countries recognize the need for the DPCW. In 2017, the central american parliament passed a resolution in support of the DPCW. In Africa, HWPL and the Pan-African Parliament (PAP) signed MOU to support the DPCW. The PAP is the legislative body of the African Union consisting of 55 countries of the continent of Africa. This means the support of the entire continent of Africa.
In Europe, the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre BBS), which is headed by a group of former European national leaders, signed the MOU with HWPL. Not at all, Seychelles, Eswatini, and Comoros expressed support for the DPCW at the NATIONAL LEVEL.
3rd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)
Civil Society’s Role for Peaceful Unification of the Korean Peninsula
At 14th of March, 2019, It will be held all over the world. On 14th of March, Everyone in the world should write Peace Letters to support the DPCW. “Dear President, Here is the Answer to Peace. Why not? Do you want war? If you really love your country and people, you should support the DPCW.” What is your choice? Endless War or Peaceful Future? This choice now we do will be remembered forever in future generations. Sign the DPCW!
Mr. President, did you receive our peace letters? Please write back. This is a time of peace. All things have helped us. So, our beginning is a success.
On 27 November 1895, Alfred Nobel signed his last will and testament. Nobel’s will said prize should be given to “the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
Alfred Nobel was acquainted with Bertha von Suttner, who was a driving force in the international peace movement in Europe. She influenced his views on peace. Peace was the fifth and final prize area that Nobel mentioned in his will. The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded by the Norwegian Nobel Committee elected by the Norwegian Parliament (Stortinget).
the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize
There are 331 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize for 2018 out of which 216 are individuals and 115 are organizations. The names of the nominees and other information about the nominations cannot be revealed until 50 years later.
All Nobel Prizes are awarded in Stockholm, Sweden, except for the Nobel Peace Prize, which is awarded in Oslo, Norway. The founder of the Nobel Prize, Alfred Nobel, was a Swedish cosmopolitan. In his will, he declared that the Nobel Peace Prize should be awarded by a Norwegian committee.
Who is the Nobel Peace Prize winner of 2018?
The Nobel Peace Prize 2017
The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) received the award “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons”.
The Nobel Peace Prize 2016
The Nobel Peace Prize 2016 was awarded to Juan Manuel Santos “for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50-year-long civil war to an end.” Juan Manuel Santos is a president of Colombia. (2010–18) He signed a peace treaty with the Marxist guerrilla organization FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia; “Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia”).
All eyes are on Peace of Korean Peninsula
There has been plenty of speculation about the possible recipient of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. But no one can know until the envelope containing the winner’s name is opened. Speculation has it that Moon Jae-In and Kim Jong-Un deserve the prize because of their unprecedented efforts to ease military tension on the Korean Peninsula and above all their public commitment to denuclearize the North. But skeptics say ‘Not yet’ because the North has taken no concrete step toward denuclearization. Let’s see the public opinion. British online betting site nicerodds rates the Moon Jae-In and Kim Jong-Un as the most likely, followed by Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump.
Robert Reich, a former U.S. cabinet member, has praised President Moon Jae-in’s “broker diplomacy” between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. He continued “But if there is ever going to be a lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, the person who will deserve the Nobel Peace Prize won’t be Trump. It will be South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in.”
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said the ‘Nobel Peace Prize should go to U.S. President Donald Trump‘, if anyone were to win it for their efforts to resolve the issues with North Korea. He said “the Nobel Peace Prize is for Trump and we only need to bring peace.”

Why Chairman Man hee Lee? He is a Korean War veteran, knows the horrors of war than a person ever knew. So the chairman Lee is running really hard for Peace on the Korean Peninsula. Also, he is the chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL). HWPL is 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). There are three reasons why the Man hee Lee will win the Nobel Peace Prize.
“When the light of heaven shines in the hearts of people,
it becomes the light that never fades away.” – the chairman Man hee Lee
3 Reasons Why chairman Man hee Lee win
1. HWPL 918 WARP Summit 2. Philippines Mindanao Island Peace Agreement & Peace Walk 3. Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)
First, HWPL 918 WARP Summit
Collaboration for Peace Development: Building a Peace Community through the DPCW
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. It received a lot of spotlight from foreign media. HWPL has been recognized the most powerful and practical peace NGO. Programs are here. If you click one by one, you can know the reasons. Also, below is a Youtube replay link.
Hon. Emil Constantinescu, Former President of Romania
“Youth and women can become the most persuasive advisories of peace in the present and in the future. Both avoiding war and establishing peace-building processes require a laborious effort to create a culture of solidarity outlining a pragmatic style in which the statements should followed by effective actions. I believe that the Declaration of World Peace 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.“
H.E. Viktor Yushchhenko, Former President of Ukraine
“I am deeply grateful to be able to implement the cause of peace in a specific way. This is truly a worthy cause. I was deeply impressed to see the DPCW with its refined and profound wisdom. I think it is worth the support from all leaders of the world. This is because the DPCW is a perfectly balanced document that was drafted through the great effort of international legal experts and is of fundamental value.”
H.E. Ivo Josipović, Former President of Croatia
“It is necessary for the two leaders(Kim Jong-Un and Moon Jae-In) to meet and discuss face-to-face. I believe that we can understand one another and accept each other’s differences through cultural exchanges, such as music and sports.”
Also, he emphasized “Presenting the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) to the United Nations as a resolution, with our intention to build peace in the world, is novel and important.”
Second, Philippines Mindanao Island Peace Agreement & Peace Walk
The Chairman Man hee Lee is the messenger of peace who is making the actual result of peace. In 2014, he risked his life to go the area where many people died for 40 years in the bloody conflict in Mindanao. He prayed to God before to go Mindanao. He said “I won’t go if God don’t abide with me.” Then, he met with representatives of the two religions to resolve the religious conflict and drew a peace treaty.
The Chairman Man hee Lee of HWPL asked, “People who are gathered here, is there any want who want war?.”
No one answered. The Chairman Lee continued that “War sacrifices many lives and destroys many buildings. If there is anyone who wants war, please raise your hand.” With silence–, no one raised their hands. The Chairman Man hee Lee shouted strongly, “When there’s war, who is the one who is fighting in front of battle line that is the youth. We are born in the same world, same generation, but their lives cannot blossom, but their lives are lost in the battle!”
The Chairman Lee continued, “Now, we need to make a peaceful world to live. And when we inherit peaceful world to our future generation, nothing would be more valuable. That is why we need to urge all of our presidents. We need to urge them for the world to become peaceful sooner. I’m not saying something wrong. Am I? We have to make our world, our global village being paradise. This is our duty. And, this is what we have to do.” Everyone gave a standing ovation.
Colombia civil war for 52 years 220,000 died Mindanao civil war for 40 years 140,000 died
Connection with Nobel Peace Prize 2016
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016. Colombian Civil War has cost the lives of at least 220,000 Colombians and displaced close to 6 million people. The Norwegian Nobel Committee said ‘the award should also be seen as a tribute to the Colombian people who, despite great hardships and abuses, have not given up hope of a just peace, and to all the parties who have contributed to the peace process. This tribute is paid, not least, to the representatives of the countless victims of the civil war.’
By the mediation of Cuban President Raul Castro, Rodrigo Londono (FARC) and Santos pledge to a peace agreement on 26th of September, 2016. Pen used in their signature is made from real bullet shell used in civil war. In pen grip “The bullet record our past. Education is our future.” is written in Spanish.
The only thing left was a referendum. That’s when the Nobel Prize 2016 was announced. But the peace agreement was rejected.
Yes 49.78% No50.21%
Also, voter turnout was 37%. Dissenting votes is 57,000 more than vote yes.
The people said ‘it is too generous for rebels.’ The Agreement said ‘War crimes like drug trafficking and kidnapping of civilians in the FARC will be exempted from obligation.’ And It ensures the legitimate political participation. They, who lost a family or whose family were taken hostage in FARC, were against the peace agreement. So, Santos government only passed Colombia peace agreement by parliamentary vote instead of the referendum. But some said “Colombia people refuse it. How can the Congress approve it?”(AFP)
But after two years, what happened in Mindanao?
After 2 years, 15,000 people are in line to greet the HWPL in Philipines. On 24 January 2016, Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) held an unveiling ceremony for the Monument to the Declaration of World Peace located in Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao Province. This monument is the second HWPL Peace Monument to be erected in the Philippines. Also, the Chairman Al Haj Murad Ebrahim of MILF decided to designate January 24th of every year as ‘HWPL Day’. I think Colombia needs to learn ‘how HWPL achieves peace in Mindanao’.
MILF chairman of Al-Hajj Murad Ebrahim
“The Chairman Lee brought a really powerful message to achieve peace that we hope and desire. It means HWPL and MILF are partner for peace. Peace is not a matter confined to a single person but to every individual. Therefore anyone who is part of this global family must all become messengers of peace. Let us all participate and become the messengers of peace to pass on peace as an eternal legacy for the future generations!”
Third, Declaration of Peace and
Cessation of War (DPCW)
So far, international law has not ended the war. So many people had to suffer and be sad because there was no peace. They have the ‘Right to Peace’. In 2018, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) recognized the Universal Declaration does not include a separate article on “Right to Peace”. So HWPL is creating a new order for the world.
In order to fundamentally resolve international conflicts and crises, The HWPL international law peace committeewas founded to discuss ways to achieve peace through international law. It is composed of prominent legal experts of different nationalities. After three formal committee meetings, the DPCW was drafted. On March 14, 2016, 10 articles and 38 clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was declared. 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 UDHRand this Declaration not only encapsulates and supports all of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). People around the world want the DPCW to be adopted by UN. The new international peace law will change the history of mankind.
Of the past 3,400 years, humans have been entirely at peace for 268 of them, or just 8 percent of recorded history. There are 12,703battles since 2500 B.C. (created by a Dutch company LAB1100) Explore the map here. At least 108 million people were killed in wars in the twentieth century. Estimates for the total number killed in wars throughout all of human history range from 150 million to 1 billion. War causes universal misery. Wars made internally displaced people, refugees and casualties. “There was never a good War, or a bad Peace.” (Benjamin Franklin) “Who can compensate for the death of the youth? A Country? No one can do.” (Man hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL)

Why ICAN won? ICAN is the abbreviation for International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. They awarded “for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons.” Successfully on 7 July 2017, The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) is adopted at the United Nations by a vote of 122-1! The ICAN said ‘TPNW‘ is “a landmark international agreement that outlaws, categorically, the worst weapons of mass destruction and establishes a pathway to their elimination.”
But since adoption, it was criticized for non-binding.
When voted of 122-1, one third of 193 U.N. member countries boycotted the vote. ‘Authorized’ nuclear nations, U.S, Russia, China, UK, France boycotted. Also ‘Unauthorized’ nuclear nations, India, Pakistan, Israel, North Korea boycotted. The number of actual signature is 53 countries.
The U.S. State Department said “Unfortunately, This treaty will not make the world more peaceful, will not result in the elimination of a single nuclear weapon, and will not enhance any state’s security.” Also the Britain and France said the prohibition wouldn’t work. The Russia said ‘It is the romance which is misleading but also dangerous.’ But the Norwegian Nobel Committee supported the ICAN‘s peace movement. It is important!!!
Nobel’s support is equal to that of the rest of the world.
What is the ICAN’s ground-breaking efforts?
NPT vs TPNW
TPNW contributed to the continued role of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), emphasizing its “vital role in promoting international peace and security”.
There is the distinction between states entitled to possess such weapons and non-nuclear weapon states in NPT. But in TPNW it is not.
The TPNW also forbids states party to the treaty from allowing “any stationing, installation or deployment” of nuclear weapons on their territory, a prohibition that is not explicitly included in the NPT.
States party to the TPNW are prohibited from conducting nuclear tests, while the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) has not yet entered into force.
Beyond Nuclear Disarmament
The purpose of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) is to end the war. If so, the nuclear disarmament is a natural consequence. Actually, DPCW has an article of elimination of nuclear weapons. I know many people think it is a naive desire. But the success of ICAN already show you that ‘the world wants peace’. We must keep the Nobel’s will.
DPCW Article 1 – Prohibition of the threat or use of force
3. States should prohibit any act or threat of violence, whatever its motives or purposes, that occurs for the advancement of an individual or collective criminal agenda.
DPCW Article 2 – War potential
2. States should not produce, assist in, encourage, or induce; the production of weapons of mass destruction, inter alia, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, or weapons capable of causing indiscriminate or widespread and unnecessary suffering, or weapons incompatible with international humanitarian law. 3. States should take measures to ensure that existing weapons of mass destruction, weapons capable of causing widespread and unnecessary suffering and weapons incompatible with international humanitarian law are gradually dismantled or destroyed. States should cooperate in disarmament and the reduction of arms stockpiles, ideally under international supervision. Decommissioned weapons manufacturing facilities should be repurposed, so that they may serve purposes that are beneficial to humanity in general.
The World supports the DPCW
In August, two African countries, eSwatini and Seychelles, officially proclaimed the National Solidarity Statement for the promotion of the DPCW. Also, the Central American Parliament (Diputados del Parlamento Centroamericano, PARLACEN), with 6 member-states, completed the official process of approval for the DPCW on January, 2018. The only thing left is the adoption of the DPCW as a UN resolution. I look forward to the support of the Nobel Committee.
Mr.PravinH.Parekh, President of the Confederation of Indian Bar
“Today one country saying ‘yes, Chairman Lee I accept your declaration’ is not enough, even 10 countries saying this is not good enough. Therefore, we need the United Nations.
In fact, the United Nations came out in 1948 from the Human Rights Declaration and that is a very good document but things have changed from 1948 until now and, therefore, it is necessary that the United Nations adopts the Declaration made by us…so that when the United Nations accepts it, it becomes binding to all the countries in the world.
That is the effort Chairman Lee had been doing and we should all support Chairman Lee in ensuring that this becomes a United Nations document.”
H.E. Gennady Burbulis
Former State Secretary of Russia and President of Baltic-Black Sea Forum
He declared support for the DPCW on behalf of the Baltic-Black Sea Board of Directors. He stated, “The MOU and MOA express our intention to work together in this important issue. Sometimes we can think that this problem or question of promoting peace is difficult or sometimes we can think that is very utopian, but we shouldn’t forget that there are many international or law organizations that unfortunately today, even the UN, do not function according to the purpose for which it was established.
So that brings the threats to all humanity…. We cannot ignore these facts. So, in our work together we should take into consideration this reality. With all of that, we eagerly support the DPCW and we really believe that it is a very important declaration,” reaffirming support for the adoption of the DPCW at the UN.
Collaboration for Peace Development: Building a Peace Community through the DPCW
‘The past does not need to be the future. A new world can begin today. It is the last chance for the peace of humanity.’ These sentences come from promotional video of ‘2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit‘. This video shows very well what kind of mindset when they are dealing with world peace. They think that achieving peace is ‘Out Duty that we have to do’ of our time at any cost. Can you feel their determination? Thousands of leaders and citizens from around the globe will gather for 3 days in Republic of Korea with the great determination of creating a peaceful world together. Now you can watch it!!! Multilingual YoutubeLive!!!
“When we inherit peaceful world to our future generation, nothing would be more valuable. That is why we need to urge all of our presidents. We need to urge them for the world to become peaceful sooner. I’m not saying something wrong. Am I? We have to make our world, our global village being paradise. This is our duty. And, this is what we have to do.”

Adoption of the DPCW as a UN resolution
What is the key point of this WARP Summit? As solutions for achieving global peace, HWPL focuses on the following:
Law for Peace Implementation of the DPCW in the form of a UN resolution to fundamentally prevent armed conflicts and establish an order of permanent peace
Alliance of Religions Harmony among religions, which lead the world and deal with spiritual matters
Peace Education Peace education to build the character expected of global citizens
Everyone is important, but I think the most important point at this time is the Adoption of the DPCW as UN resolution. To achieve this goal, around 1,000 experts in various fields from around the world are discussing now the role of the HWPL Peace Advisory Council in turning the DPCW into legally binding form & national and regional support for the adoption of the DPCW as a UN resolution.
Specially, I want to thank the HWPL International Law Peace Committee and the HWPL Peace Advisory Council for their dedication. They took the leading roles in the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) which was proclaimed on the 14th of March 2016. The DPCW has been verified as the definite answer to peace.
Political leaders, including former and current heads of state, ministers, national assembly speakers and Supreme Court justices, together with HWPL are currently making practical efforts. I am really grateful to these people. They are trying wholeheartedly towards the enactment of an international law for peace through the introduction of the DPCW to the UN. At this year’s international law session, high-ranking officials and the HWPL international law advisory committee will create concrete measures to advance the process of the realization of the implementation of an international law for peace.
Legislate Peace Campaign “Now 630 events 176 countries 1 million participants”
Don’t you know what the DPCW is? The DPCW is a legal document that was drafted by HWPL and proclaimed on 14 March 2016, purposing to create a legally binding instrument for the cessation of war and establishment of peace. It is composed of 10 articles and 38 clauses, and offers universal values and principles such as peaceful conflict resolution, promotion of friendly relations between states, freedom of religion, and the spreading of a culture of peace, for the advancement of peace in both nations and civil society. Reference : http://hwpl.kr/en/initiative/lawForPeace
Adoption of the DPCW in International Organizations
The Central American Parliament(Diputados del Parlamento Centroamericano, PARLACEN), with 6 member-states, has now completed the official process of approval for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War(DPCW) after a year of discussion in the Commission of Peace, Public Security and Human Rights. It is an amazing achievement! Hon. Deputy Paula Lorena Rodriguez Lima, current Representative of Guatemala in PARLACEN, took the leading rold in this adoption. The most amazing thing is that she talked every single one of 120 congressmen and women to persuade the value of DPCW.
The resolution includes the following,
“It is intended that the Central American Parliament raise the flag of peace among the entire international community, taking this message to all governments, international organizations, civil society, political parties and others.
Based on what was considered above and the legal basis invoked, the Commission of Peace, Public Security and Human Rights issues favorable report with amendments to the initiative AP / 1278-278 / 2016 the “DECLARATION OF PEACE AND CESSATION OF WAR”.
In the DPCW promoted by HWPL on March 14, 2016, the respect of human rights and international law is fundamentally promoted, especially the role of the states in relation to the promotion of Peace, Justice and Freedom.”
At the 29th HWPL World Peace Tour, HWPL came to attend ‘the 2018 African Leaders of Peace Summit’ & ‘2018 Addis Ababa Summit‘ and achieved a lot. When the chairman Man hee Lee visited the Pan African Parliament (PAP), the representative of PAP signed the MOUwith HWPL. And He also supported the DPCW on behalf of the pan-African Parliament (PAP). This means that every country in Africa will support the DPCW. Also, two countries (eSwatini and Seychelles) send documents that they would support the DPCW on a national level. I don’t know how much you recognize it, but it’s a huge result!!! And what I’d like to focus on the most is that the Chairman Man hee Lee declared, in 2013, ‘we created an international law and the presidents should sign here. And then, the war will be eliminated all over the world’. It really comes true.
The representative of IPYG cried out strongly
“So I ask you again, but please urge your presidents to support this DPCW.
Please write letters to presidents, promote it online & media and support the DPCW!
And I hope that you will encourage not only your country, but also the presidents of Africa and the rest of the world through the Internet and the media.”
What can we do for the DPCW?
Our Mission : IPYG Peace Letter Campaign
The Chairman Man hee Lee of HWPL said “we need to urge all of our presidents. We need to urge them for the world to become peaceful sooner.” As part of it, The IPYGpeace lettercampaign is driven by the youth to urge all of our presidents. The ‘IPYG peace letter campaign‘ is driven by the youth to urge all of our presidents. With 851 organizations from 111 countries around the world, all youth of IPYG is running for peace. International youths are now urging their international leaders to support peace in the same manner as the resolution and calling for the role of young adults to be enhanced in advancing peace. Over the period of 2 days, 20,006 letters were written and collected, currently summing up to a total of 66,900 peace letters.
What can we do for peace? I ask you again, but please urge your presidents to support this DPCW. Please write letters to presidents, promote it online & media and support the DPCW! Therefore, you will be remembered eternally around the world as heroes of peace who achieve peace for the first time.
The Chairman Man hee Lee shouted “All mankind desires peace, nobody has
wanted war. So, if we become one, we will be able to achieve peace. HWPL exists
for the youth. I hope all youth will join in the peace activities of IPYG and leave
peace as a legacy for our future generations.”
