HWPL Supporters ONE started an online promotion service from September 1, 2018 in order to make the peace activities of HWPL and other news of peace widely known around the world.
While the performance and parade rehearsals are underway, they are busy moving and working on one side of the stadium to announce the news of peace.
HWPL Supporters ONE peace quotes
One supporter said “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.”
“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.”
Have you ever thought that peace could be achieved?
Maybe, you can think it is so naive. Is this possible? You can think it is likely that high-ranking people will act in their own interests anyway. Why hasn’t peace been achieved so far?
This is because no one had the answer to peace. Let’s hear the story of people who have answers to peace supported by 3.6 billion women and 1.8 billion young people around the world.
HWPL with Man Hee Lee
HWPL is the international NGO associated with UN DPI and ECOSOC. Its purpose is only to end the war. HWPL is recognized by experts as the most practical and powerful peace group. What is the Answer to peace?
First, DPCW (Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War)
The existing international law allowed for war in part. They thought the war was a necessary evil. But no one wants a war. DPCW is a new international law created with 21 experts on international law to root out war from this global village. This document will be a milestone in human history.
Every year on May 25, young people go out to the streets together. Gather together and walk for peace. On 25 May, 2018, HWPL plans a peace campaign of 5th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace with a slogan: Together for A New Start, Together for Peace. 525 peace walks that take place all over the world are spectacular.
Every year on September 18, the World Peace Festival is held in Korea. As the years go by, a great number of international figures are coming. There are 18 former and incumbent presidents, Supreme Court justices, National Assembly speakers, first ladies, and university professors. They are moved by the sight where 200,000 people become One and return to their country as a messenger of peace. We Are One!
Around 145 representative officials to the United Nations of the respective countries gathered to hold a dialogue on the agenda of peace and development at UN Headquarters in New York on May 31, 2018.
Attended as a special invitee, Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL said “I’ve visited all around the world and had a number of agreements with the former and current presidents, the chief justices, and members of the National Assembly to end the war together. All leaders in each country should sign the agreement for the international law (DPCW) to achieve peace if they love the country and the people.”
“To do this, the United Nations must work together to accomplish the task of peace with its spirit of peace at its inception.” After this truthful speech, everyone gave a huge standing ovation!!!
These things are Man Hee Lee Peace Biography. Now, everything is up to you! Please become messengers of peace!
In Wikipedia, Peacebuilding is an approach to an entire set of interrelated efforts that support peace. And as other definition, Peacebuilding is a process that facilitates the establishment of durable peace and tries to prevent the recurrence of violence by addressing root causes and effects of conflict. (Ref) It seems to have a literal meaning.
It is difficult to achieve peace, but there have been many international efforts. First, the UN was founded at October 24, 1945 and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly at its third session on 10 December 1948. And now we’re trying to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that we’re going to achieve by 2030. What do you think of the current peace? Are you satisfied?
Perhaps, the answer depends on your current state of affairs. It would be the same for anyone to answer. But there are some people who didn’t. People who need to get rid of war in this global village. People who sacrifice themselves to achieve peace. Those who want to enact a new international law, saying that the UN should not forget its original spirit. Who are they?
HWPL Peacebuilding Story
They are the members of HWPL. It’s a HWPL Peacebuilding Story.
The Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL said, “I’ve visited all around the world and had a number of agreements with the former and current presidents, the chief justices, and members of the National Assembly to end the war together.
All leaders in each country should sign the agreement for the international law to achieve peace if they love the country and the people. To do this, the United Nations must work together to accomplish the task of peace with its spirit of peace at its inception.” at UN Headquarters, around 145 representative officials. After this speech, he received a huge standing ovation.
Today, I’d like to give you a very good example of Peacebuilding.
Philippine Social Representatives Seek Peacebuilding Through Cultural Exchange With International NGO
On February 8, a grand peace festival will be held, which is entitled “We are one for Peace to attain Sustainable Development” at the Philippine Sports Stadium, Bulacan. It had 30,000 participants including social representatives in the Philippines and Volunteer Individuals for Peace (VIP) by Dr. Ronald Adamat, CHED’s Commissioner and Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL. Why do they get together?
They want to launch nationwide peace movement throughout the Philippine’s State Universities and Colleges. A HWPL Official said “The highlight of this peace event is to give inspiration of citizen participation in peacebuilding. Cultural performances will represent harmony under peace beyond differences in ethnicity, religion or nationality. Also, the principles of peacebuilding with civic participation and national support will be introduced – the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).”
If you want to know more DPCW
How can HWPL change a country?
They don’t just talk. As a partnership in promoting a culture of peace between the City Government of Paranaque (Philippine) and HWPL, there will be an inauguration of the “PEACE ROOM” in Paranaque City Public Library. According to organizers of this project, “peace corner and peace room will be established in different libraries nationwide to raise awareness of peacebuilding to citizens.”How can HWPL change a country?
Because the CHED and Dr. Adamat helped a lot. Last January 2018, Commissioner of Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and HWPL signed an MOU to promote peace education throughout public colleges nationwide. The Chairman Man Hee Lee emphasized “We should think of how we can achieve peace. It should start by teaching peace to the youths.”
At the 2018 HWPL World Peace Summit: 4th Anniversary of the WARP Summit, HWPL signed MOU with renowned organizations such as the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices, the Institute for Advanced Studies in Levant Culture and Civilization (ISACCL), and other organizations to which Eastern European heads of state belong.
H.E. Gennady Burbulis, Former State Secretary of Russia and President of Baltic-Black Sea Forum, said “Creating a peace culture is a difficult road we must travel until peace becomes stabilized, but at the same time, it will help people to find inner harmony and to fit their lives to the stars in the sky and to the work of humanity.
Regardless of age, position, or field, the work that we are doing will play a pivotal role in actualizing peace through the power of communities. And I believe that that actualization of peace within communities is very well reflected in the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
In order to fulfill this goal, we must look at this on a global scale, not on the scale of individual nations,. As long as the foundation is still unstable, we cannot ensure the success of today nor tomorrow. This is why peace is so closely tied to dignity. I am sure that the DPCW needs to be and will be as historical as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
Watch again the Lecture for Peaceful Unification on the Korean Peninsula:
What year? What do you think the most important things were in this year? Maybe, I think 2018 is the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the UN on 10 December 1948. Also, there had been various incidents over the world, but there had been progress in inter-Korean relations, the only divided nation.
When can we enjoy peace in full? Like Michelle Bachelet, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said “Recent memory is replete with multiple examples of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.” There is still much to be desired. The human rights of millions are still being violated on a daily basis.
What should we do? How nice it would be to get rid of the war?
However, there were people who made a lot of efforts for peace between the two Koreas.
When the leaders of the two Koreas were having their third summit, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) chairman Man Hee Lee brought together more than 1,500 world-class political and religious leaders as well as peace activists in Incheon, South Korea, to reunite the two countries. Influential people from all over the world gathered to discuss how to achieve peace at the2018 HWPL World Peace WARP Summit.
ex) Participants: former presidents Viktor Yushchenko from Ukraine, Croatia’s Ivo Josipovic, Romania’s Emil Constantinescu and Sierra Leone’s ex-vice president Samuel SamSumana.
The Chairman Man Hee Lee said “It’s embarrassing to see the country is still divided. I believe the president of South Korea [Moon] and the leader of North Korea [Kim] know about this conference and I urge them to support us to achieve peace.” Is he a high-ranking civil servant? Nope. But it makes sense for him to say so. Because he is a veteran of the Korean War. It is unprecedented for a civilian to do such a thing.
Mr. Man hee Leeof HWPL is awarded the Seoul Peace Culture Award. It’s a prize for people who contribute greatly to mankind and his influence is worldwide. It began in 2007 and was established to leave the people’s will and belief in the eternal peace of the world’s human welfare and the global village.
In their acceptance speech, The Chairman Lee asked “HWPL’s proposal to end the war effectively through international law prohibiting the production of weapons and war is now recognized by the international community as an effective alternative to ending the war,” And he continued, “Now, please cooperate with HWPL to achieve a peaceful unification of the Korean Peninsula.”
In particular, through a joint discussion with legal professionals around the world, a campaign is underway to establish an international law for peace, in which one million people from 170 countries participated, based on the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
On the 16th of September, The ‘Goseong Peace Conference’ was attended by the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre BBS) and the UN-affiliated NGO HWPL. Why did they get together? The purpose is ‘the Adoption of the DPCW in the UN and the Peaceful Unification of the Korean Peninsula.’ It is a hot topic in the world. Today, I introduce you HWPL peace quotes with Man Hee Lee.
H.E. Viktor Yushchenko, Former president of Ukraine, said “If a country is attacked, no one is safe, because we are all one. What we are going to talk about is solidarity. We need to get the signatures of a million people because it can bring many people to unite and affirm the solidarity. I think Chairman Lee of HWPL is doing great work to gain support from many people in various countries. We are becoming one. The work we are doing is the way we can unite.”
What is HWPL in a word? I think the next sentence contains the spirit of HWPL. “When the light of heaven shines in the hearts of people, it becomes the light that never fades away.”
The core values of HWPL is to bringing world peace and cessation of war through the establishment of an legally-binding law compatible with the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) and the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace(WARP)offices.Today I’m going to introduce you to the simple things of HWPL and the WARP Office.
HWPL is a world-class international NGO which has 170 branches all over the world. Peace-loving people are all gathered here. HWPL has 158 Members of HWPL Advisory Council, 506 Publicity Ambassadors and 705000 Legislate Peace Campaign Signatures. Also, it has two wings of IPYG and IWPG. It is why Mr. Man Hee Lee is called the messenger of peace. Because 3.6 billion Women and 1.8 billion Youth support the Chairman Lee.
It can make ‘Alliance of Religions.’ Why do we need this? 80% of the causes of war in human history are religion. Shouldn’t religion admit difference? How can this be possible? Shouldn’t religion admit difference? How can this be possible? Here, a groundbreaking method of HWPL is presented. ‘To compare the scriptures of each religion.’ Then, the fight & war stops and the conversation begins.
It began from the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit in 2014 where representative leaders from 12 religions, along with 950 participants, signed the Unity of Religion Agreement. At that time, the WARP Office Meeting was established and it has been actively practiced worldwide since then. Peace has already begun!! Each of you is very important. Because nothing happens without us. Please become a messenger of peace!
On the 16th of September, The ‘Goseong Peace Conference’ was attended by the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre BBS), which is headed by a group of former European national leaders.
Mr. Man Hee Lee was stressing the responsibilities of global leaders to work together for peace according to the pledge contained in this peace agreement.
Also Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL said, “I hope this talk would create a new future and form a peaceful world. We know that everyone wants peace and the end of war. I haven’t seen anyone who wants war. When we achieve peace, our future generation will remember us forever.”
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. You already know. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which marks the 70th anniversary of this year, still holds great significance for us all over the world. Especially this year, the UDHR is asking us, ‘The UDHR don’t have a separate article on ‘Right to Peace’ yet, what does “The Right to Peace” mean to you? I wrote a posting.
Today, we are going to find out more questions about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and what UDHR and DPCW have in common. I was really curious, too. “Is the UDHR legally binding?” It’s a globally recognized document and a declaration cited everywhere. It’s so natural to see it. What is the correct answer?
The Universal Declaration is not a treaty, so it does not directly create legal obligations for countries. However, it is an expression of the fundamental values which are shared by all members of the international community. And it has had a profound influence on the development of international human rights law. (Thanks, google)
So what is the exact meaning of being legally binding? Legally binding treaty. This means that states which ratify the treaty are legally bound by it, while states that do not are neither bound by the treaty obligations or entitled to invoke those obligations against other state parties. The HWPL’s DPCW is just walking down this road. The international law so far allowed war in part. So HWPL will make the DPCW a legally binding law to bring it to the United Nations to make a world without war.
What do the UDHR and the DPCW have in common?
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and The DPCW
DPCW Article 1 – Prohibition of the threat or use of force
2. States should refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of military force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations Charter or international law in general.

In accordance with United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2625 (XXV), every State has the duty to refrain in its international relations from military, political, economic, or any other form of coercion aimed against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, or in any other manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations. This is without prejudice to instances when such forms of coercion may be lawfully applied, inter alia, to induce states to cease internationally wrongful acts, or when sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council.
DPCW Article 7 – Right to self-defence
2. Measures taken by states in the exercise of their right to self-defence should be immediately reported to the Security Council and should not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the United Nations Charter to take, at any time, such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.
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.

4. States should promote a culture of peace including ensuring conditions in which- (d) the right to development of peoples, including the achievement of the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs), can be realized; and
We found out more questions about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and what the UDHR and the DPCW have in common. As much as the UDHR, the DPCW is a milestone document in the history of human rights.
Do you know why people say ‘Mr.Man Hee Lee is a messenger of peace’? Because he has the definite answer to peace. I will tell you the coolest Man Hee Lee Quotes. He is a Korean War veteran, knows the horrors of war than a person ever knew. Also, he is the chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL).
HWPL is an international peace nonprofit organization which is the most influential in the world, especially for young people and women. In his biography, It’s clear who he is. ‘I received many rewards from around the world—certificates of awards, plaques, and medals. However, these are not the true rewards. The true reward is the establishment of world peace. This is an eternal reward.‘ This is why he moves for peace.
Man Hee Lee Quotes
The signing of a Joint Statement as well as the MOU signing ceremony between HWPL and 13 supporting media outlets followed the presentations.
After signing the MOU, Chairman Lee pleaded earnestly to those in attendance, “Achieving peace and cessation of war is an impossible task without media professionals like yourselves because we cannot meet everyone in person to deliver this message. The media and press must constantly report on the news of peace-building efforts to make a peaceful society. Let us achieve our goal of peace by doing it. Rather than waiting for tomorrow to come, let us bring forth tomorrow and work steadily to accomplish our goal. I trust each and every reporter here to hold the media accountable.”
