On February 19th, the ‘2019 Pacific Leaders’ Summit for Peace, Sydney’ was held at the New South Wales Parliament House in Australia with HWPL, an international NGO under the UN ECOSOC. It was held for the South Pacific leaders to call for the introduction of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) at the UN General Assembly in 2019. During this conference, 12 high-level government leaders from eight countries in the South Pacific showed their support for DPCW.
Mr. Man Hee Lee, the chairman of HWPL, urged for joint efforts towards the enactment of the DPCW by saying, “Now we have the answer within the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW to achieve peace and end war. There is no one who doesn’t want peace. The leaders of the nations should do what their people want them to do. This is the true politics that lead us from death to life. There shouldn’t be anyone who disturbs this work of peace. We all have to put our efforts together. When we work together for peace, it will be the light that shines all over the world”.
“I sincerely thank you for your education in the spirit of noble truth search for the future of the nation and people. And I sincerely congratulate you on the successful implementation of peace education by Master Peace, whom I met in Romania last year. Here in Romania, I felt the people’s earnest desire for freedom in their hearts. I maybe it began when they achieved democratization in Eastern Europe 30 years ago. I think it can make them to continue to strive for better development.
And Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, despite his near 90s, has been a global village owner with no spare life. He made an appeal for cooperation for peace, carrying out a schedule that even young people could not afford. His firm commitment and actions are the best and most living peace education for all mankind.
As you can see from the video of how great the peace fruits of HWPL have been, the fruit of HWPL has never been achieved by a private organization and not achieved by the state. What’s next is that young people and women, who have inherited the spirit of peace, are creating peace together with the speed of light.
As a mother of children, I hope that our children will no longer grow up in a culture of war and violence, but live happily and safely in a culture of peace. If you continue to strive for peaceful education and the spread of peace and culture, such as DPCW, which is the definite answer to restoring the original shape of the global village and achieving peace, I am confident that our children who will lead our future will live in a peaceful world where there is no more war and violence.
When you change your mind, you can change your culture. When you change your culture, you can change the destiny of the world.
Let’s awaken a sense of peace and create a culture of peace. And let’s protect our children from war and conflict and pass on peace to posterity. As the Korean saying goes, “A good beginning is half the battle,” you have opened the beginning of HWPL peace education, so please continue to implement and promote it to spread beyond Romania to all over Europe.
Let us all create a peace culture with one heart to end the war and create a world of eternal peace.
The role of HWPL is important more than ever. Today, we live in a different World. Open a new era of peace with HWPL! The founder of HWPL, Chairman Man Hee Lee, has been tirelessly giving effects with contribution. We are hopeful that DPCW, in the long run, will definitely get status of “Law of Peace”. In order to create a peaceful world without war, We need more than just a practical law. International women groups are gathered to practice a warm “mother’s Love” where peace is needed.
Harmony, Communication, and Peace with the 3.7 Billion Women in the World
At the 3rd of Apr., 2019 09:00(GMT +3), IWPG World Peace Conference in Europe is held now. 3.7 billion Women is Our Hope and Our Power. Women’s life and tolerance to protect their children is the “KEY” of peace. Women, please help. War kills too many people. Your role is very important.
At the 2nd of Apr., 2019 16:00(GMT+3), 2019 PEACE EDUCATION Conference was held in Romania during HWPL 31st World Peace Tour. It was attended by Emil Constantinescu, Romania’s 3rd president, and Romania’s current education minister. Now, Peace education has become more important than any other era. With peace education, what does the future hold for the citizens these children grow up to be? There are children with the seed of peace. The efforts of everyone here can help them blossom.
One professor of international law said “Actually, the DPCW document has synthesized many of the existing documents, many of the existing instrument and the declarations which has been drawn for building peace and ending war. The strength of the DPCW is simplicity and it’s very accommodative with the existing norms. So this is its strength and very confident that if the DPCW is well read and well understood by the global community, then we can build a consensus for putting more effort into building peace in the world.”
The Chairman Lee emphasized the meaning of Heavenly Culture and Peace will be achieved through DPCW. Mr. Man Hee Lee said “We now know nothing outweighs the value of peace. The religious world is becoming one with us and so are schools worldwide. They are becoming one with HWPL to achieve a world of peace. What does HWPL stand for? Heavenly Culture, the culture of heaven. We will surely end wars and bring peace. Everyone involved in implementing international law based on the DPCW will be remembered in history. Moreover, I believe that with heavenly culture, we can change the world into a better place. I firmly believe this. We are one! We are one!”
IMPORTANCE of HWPL Peace Education
STRONGER MILITARY STRONGER WEAPONS STRONGER SECURITY But can it really be the answer for building peace? How can we achieve peace?
By teaching our children to nurture the spirit of peace, you can build a world of peace without seeking war or weapons. This simple innovative idea started at HWPL. Peace Education is now touching hearts around the globe regardless of nationality, race, religion, culture and ideology. The way to achieve world peace once seemed so far away.
Would you believe it if children already have the answer?
“Children, What is peace to you?”
“Peace is love! I love my friends very much so we do not fight.” “Peace means forgiveness. Because when my friend says sorry to me, I just forget everything and I just hug him and it feels so nice.” “For me, Peace is to be grateful to our parents.”
“Peace is love. As I’m living with us, I’m living in love with my friends and this is only peace from us.” “For me, Peace is to become one, to become one with neighbors who are different from me.”
“Cooperation. Nations around the world should gather for the common reason and aim to create the peaceful world.”
“Without peacefulness, we don’t have self-love and self-esteem. When we are peaceful, we have self-love and self-esteem, and focus on self-actualization.”
As the result of the 30th world peace tour was great, I am looking forward to the HWPL 31st World Peace Tour. These postings are the ones that I write one by one. If you look at them one by one, you can see the reason why experts said “HWPL is the most powerful international peace NGO”. Actually, HWPL is associated with UN DPI and ECOSOC.
Why is Mr. Man hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, supported by 3.7 billion women and 1.6 billion young men? Why is the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) proposed by HWPL the answer to peace?
At the 2nd of Apr., 2019 16:00 (GMT+3), 2019 PEACE EDUCATION Conference will be held in Romania. Regardless of differences in religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, HWPL is closely contributing to the leading for peace. How can we achieve peace? According to statistics of UNICEF, Over 10% of young women in 5 European countries experience sexual violence before age 15. #ENDviolence
Now, The role of Teacher and Peace Education is important more than ever. We are at the forefront in implementing peace education for children and the youth. Especially, Romania is the hometown of H.E. Emil Constantinescu, former president of Romania. He knows peace better than anyone else. I can’t help but admit it when I hear about his life. I wrote down his biography.

On February 18th, 2019, HWPL held a conference called‘Religious World Without Discrimination, Religious Leaders Becoming one’in Sydney, Australia. Along with about 370 audience members, 30 religious leaders representing 7 different denominations, including Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism and Caodaism, are gathered to discuss the Role of Religion.
Regarding the role of religious leaders in establishing a world of peace, Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL said, “I came to Australia to tell that the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) are necessary to make a world of peace and leave a legacy of peace for future generations. This is more important than anything else, and we have to all become peace messengers.”
During the conference, the theme of ‘religious discrimination’ was also discussed. 4 keynote speakers delivered messages regarding unfortunate cases of religious discrimination and the need for concrete action plans.
Especially, one pastor read a letter that will be sent to the United Nations Human Rights Council, “I am a Pastor working in Australia and Pakistan. Pakistan is a dominantly Muslim country where religious tension and discrimination exists. I understand how we must all work to bring about true harmony between people of different faiths and cultures. The acts of the Christian Council of Korea (CCK) in relation to Ms. Gu Ji-In who was killed in the aftermath of coercive conversion in Korea should never be ignored and what they do should be stopped.”
30 religious leaders signed the Statement Denouncing Coercive Conversion Programs and Religious Discrimination and proclaimed their support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
H.E. Hun Sen Prime Minister Royal Government of Cambodia Phnom Penh, Cambodia
March 9, 2019
Dear Prime Minister Hun Sen
I fully agree with you, the Prime Minister. You said that the history of the recent conflict in Cambodia was caused by foreign intervention. Your message seems to reflect the reality exactly. As a young man who went through the war in person at that time, I think you know better than anyone how painful it was.
I remember saying, “My youth has no peace, no happiness, one eye has a disability, and I’m sick and tired of the war and the parting of my loved ones.” Who dies in war? Youth! He is my friend and he is someone’s son.
As a young man, I’m very interested in peace. I’m from Korea, the only divided country in the world. Because of foreign intervention, which was two powerful powers, we became two countries, two peoples. In the tragedy of shooting at our own people, many young people had to die. The sound of gunfire, cannons, jets, and bombs split young people’ ears. Shot to death, Starved to death. This is the tragedy of the same race. Our country is still a divided country, and danger lurks.
So I could sympathize more with the suffering of the Cambodian people. There was a civil war by the end of the 1980s, and ‘foreign intervention’ is making the people more painful. Now, thanks to Prime Minister Hun Sen, Cambodia has achieved a lot of political stability, but shouldn’t there be a lasting peace? What can you give to future children as the best legacy? It is a lasting peace! I would like to speak to you about the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the “Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War” (DPCW) which has recently been supported as “Answer To Peace” by former and incumbent presidents, the National Assembly speaker, and so on.
One historian said “China, Russia and the U.S. tried to put the world’s countries in their political arena and provoked them with money, weapons and political assurance strategies.” I would like to talk to you about DPCW’s provisions that reflect the realities of Cambodia at the time when peace was desired more than anyone else.
DECLARATION OF PEACE AND CESSATION OF WAR
Article 1 – Prohibition of the threat or use of force
4. States should abstain from interference in the internal conflicts of other States.
Article 3 – Friendly relations and the prohibition of acts of aggression
1. In accordance with United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2625 (XXV), States should develop friendly relations based upon respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and should take appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace.
Article 4 – State boundaries
1. 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.
3. Every state has the duty to refrain from any act of incitement, planning, preparation, initiation or commission of an act of aggression by a state, a group of states, an organization of states or an armed group or by any foreign or external entity, against the sovereignty, political independence and territorial integrity of any State.
Article 5 – Self-determination
2. Subject to the right to self-determination of peoples, states shall not engage in any intervention that seeks to divide or separate a state in a manner that is contrary to the rules of international law.
In particular, when it comes to “Killing Fields” where the Khmer Rouge regime forced or massacred nearly two million people (one third of its seven million people) for three years and seven months, the Solution is the Article 9 of the DPCW.
Article 9 – Religion, ethnic identity and peace
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.
The current international law cannot end conflict and war. This is because it is not legally binding. Thus, the “HWPL International Law Peace Committee”, which has gathered 21 renowned international law experts from all over the world, declared the DPCW to improve the problems of current international law. If the DPCW is presented as a resolution to the UN General Assembly and supported by two-thirds of the ambassadors, peace can be achieved.
HWPL, associated with UN DPI and ECOSOC, is risking their lives to leace peace as legacy to future generations with a definite answer to peace. On February 22, 2019, HWPL held a peace event with Cambodian supreme monk Tep Vong, during HWPL 30th World Peace Tour. If Cambodia has been harmed by the regime of genocide by ignorant people, please support HWPL peace education, which has signed an MOA with Ministry of Education of Youth and Sport of the Kingdom of Cambodia, so that it may no longer be ignorant. This is to achieve the Article 10 of the DPCW, “Spreading a culture of peace.”
Peace event with Cambodian Supreme Monk Tep Vong
Prime Minister Hun Sen, if you really love the people and the country, please sign the DPCW! IPYG all over the world is urging presidents from around the world to sign the DPCW. In less than a year, 165,782 Peace Letters were collected. The Pan-African Parliament (PAP), which represents all citizens of 55 countries of the African Continent, the International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre BBS), which consisted of former European Presidents, and 145 United Nations officials also supported the DPCW. Please support the DPCW to be introduced into the U.N. resolution and to be legally binding all over the world.
Why is the DPCW the answer to peace? The answer is in the “Civil Society”. That’s why HWPL is joined with the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) and the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG). At the Center of HWPL, there is Mr.Man Hee Lee who is a veteran of the Korean War and called the “Father of Peace”. He’s risking his life for old age and working for peace. That’s why 1.8 billion young people and 3.7 billion women all over the world support the Chairman Lee. If all citizens speak one voice in a single direction, which leader can ignore citizens? There is “No Citizen” who doesn’t want peace.
I heard from a Cambodian friend that because of the painful history of ‘Killing Fields,’ young people under the age of 30 now account for more than 70 percent of the total population. If peace can be established, Cambodia has the potential to become an advanced country more than any other country. Who would be the first to die in a war? It’s young people. These young men don’t want war, they want peace. I think maybe you don’t want to pass on “the youth of yours, when there is no peace and happiness.” But if you don’t take any action, we have no choice but to think you love war.
Mr.Man Hee Lee, the chairman of HWPL, and the peace mission spread peace throughout the world with the answer to peace in the eastern country of Korea.
Starting in 2012, and continuing his world peace tour until now in 2018, the Chairman Man Hee Lee has toured 70 countries in a total of 29 times. The messenger of peace went to anywhere, such as war zones where bullets flew in and out or places where armed rebels, if they needed peace. How can he work so passionately? Because he said “In this time, I am convinced that making peace is what heaven had commanded me, and that I can achieve peace.”
All expenses were covered with HWPL’s money, without anyone’s support. The steps he has taken so far are enough to believe that the Messenger of Peace will end all wars and achieve world peace. The Chairman Man Hee Lee’s journey around the globe is revolutionary and important, but it is too vast to record all of it, so I will only give you a glimpse of the unusual.
Now, he is now on the HWPL 30th World Peace Tour. The peace mission is heading for Cambodia beyond the Philippines and Australia.
Here comes the Messenger of Peace with the Answer of Peace!
HWPL is warmly welcomed wherever it goes. On the day the envoys arrive in each country, the airport is packed with young people and local residents who voluntarily gather after hearing the news of HWPL’s visit. Because everyone in the world is hungry for a dream “Peace” that has never been achieved in the history of the global village.
So many young people follow the Chairman Man Hee Lee as the ‘Father of Peace.’ And from the moment when HWPL comes to the moment when if flies to another, governments accord them the treatment of a national guest to show their support for the HWPL’s peace activities.
What is the Answer to Peace? DPCW!
Only proclaimed three years ago, more than 700,000 citizens from 176 countries signed autographs to support the DPCW. And more than 500 DPCW supporting events were held in more than 74 countries. The DPCW, loved by national support and young people around the world, is moving toward a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly. As a developing country, Southeast Asia is now facing a lot of difficulties in joining the developed world. It is essential that peace be achieved for development. Peace enables us to achieve sustainable goals.
The 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the DPCW will actually achieve world peace. If all of leaders of all Southeast Asian countries show their support for the DPCW to the heads of state and officials, world peace will be achieved soon. And on March 14, All Youth’ll send handwritten peace letters to leaders around the world to ask you to support the DPCW, We can change not only Southeast Asia but the whole world.
Mr. Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, strongly said “I’m here today to ask you very strongly. In order for us to live in peace, we believe that all the people of today’s globe must make efforts for peace. I don’t think it’s a matter of waiting for someone to bring it. Wouldn’t it be better to make peace than any power or substance and leave a legacy for future generations? But what has changed? Has peace been achieved? Each day, the war got worse, the conflict got worse, and the global community was threatened. Do you still just watch it?
But now it was different. The sky is not just looking at the human race. Give the answer to peace, and make peace. The answer is the 10 Articles and 38 Clauses of the DPCW. I want to ask all the politicians and intellectuals around the world. If anyone thinks this doesn’t end the war, you must said “This cannot end the war because of this problem, so let’s discuss together.” Isn’t it so? If there is an answer to be able to end the war and you are not interested in it, would it be real politics? What are you waiting for? It’s like you’re waiting for a war.
I has traveled around the globe a few times. But there was no one who was against peace. And there was no one who liked war. Isn’t that what every family in the world wants? So what do the leaders of each country want? Shouldn’t we do what the people want? All the students and young people in each country will stand up more and more.
No amount of power or money is enough for your children to live well. The conditions for a well-being are to create a world of peace without war and to leave a legacy, which is what we have to do today. You have more knowledge and experience than me. I think you can do it. I sincerely hope that you will do so. Thank you.”
Why do you think peace is necessary? What does peace mean to you? Is the current world peaceful? This is likely to vary depending on the country you live in and what you see and hear.
But there are people who risk their lives for peace. I can’t figure out how many rounds they’ve traveled around the globe at their own expense. It is the HWPL Peacebuilding Story, a peace organization recognized by prominent people around the world. Former and incumbent presidents, Supreme Court chiefs, group leaders and journalists are joining the HWPL and spreading the culture of peace around the world.
This is also possible with the presence of HWPL chairman, Mr. Man Hee Lee. People asked “Why are you risking your life for a peace movement?” It is related to his biography. He was a Korean War veteran. So, he knows better than anyone the pain of war and the suffering of countless children in the country. He knows the pain of war and the suffering of countless children in the country better than anyone. This is why he is supported by 1.6 billion young people and 3.7 billion women.
So far, the HWPL’s movement is more substantial and powerful than any other peace organization. Check out the official site and other postings.
International Women’s Peace Group
World peace to end the war
Human beings have the right to be happy, and they are born to be happy. But the global village is hurting each other with disputes, conflicts, and wars, and human rights and life are being threatened. Every woman has a spirit of service of mother and sacrifice to create a world of happiness for all families.
Women around the world become one of the many lives that are sacrificed in the war, especially those who are hyisaengdang at the forefront of the battlefield, to keep their children out of the ‘ end of war ‘ movement and to create a peaceful global village.
I would like to instill a sense of “peace” for people around the world, and work with women leaders and international women groups worldwide to practice a warm “mother’s Love” where peace is needed.
Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia, bordering Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. Cambodia is famous for the Angkor Wat temple, that have built for Hindu religion during Khmer Empire. (officially the Angkor Empire) Now, the temple is part of Angkor World Heritage Site and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the world. At its peak, the Khmer empire (802-1431) covered much of what today is Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and southern Vietnam.
However, there was a great tragedy in this flourishing culture. The Cambodian Killing Fields (Khmer: វាលពិឃាត) are a number of sites in Cambodia where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979, immediately after the end of the Cambodian Civil War.
The killing fields document death. From 1975 to 1979, Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge soldiers killed 1.7 million Cambodians, or 21 percent of the population, according to Yale University’s Cambodia Genocide Program. Maybe, it is the reason why the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS)signed a MoU with HWPL to introduce Peace education nationwide and develop relevant policies and programs.
How did Cambodian Genocide end?
The Fall of the Republic of Democratic Kampuchea. On December 25, 1978, Vietnam launched a full-scale invasion of Cambodia and on January 7, 1979, Phnom Penh fell and Pol Pot was deposed.
What was the purpose of the Cambodian Genocide?
Ideology. Ideology played an important role in the genocide. Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge aimed to bring Cambodia back to its “mythic past” of the Powerful Khmer Empire, to stop corrupting influences like foreign aid and western culture, and to restore the country to an agrarian society.
HWPL Cambodia Peacebuilding
Ideology can be solved through education. It is the reason why Cambodia wants to cooperate with HWPL.
Phnom Penh – The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport together with International Peace Organization and the inauguration of the HWPL Peace Building Department on February 14, 2019 RUPP. H.E. Hang Chuon Naron, Minister of Education, Youth and Sport, said “Peace education of HWPL was also considered and included in the curriculum of schools in Cambodia.”
As a result, 164 schools in 12 countries have signed MOUs with HWPL.
H.E. Rachana Khun, Under Secretary of State of Ministry of Education of Youth and Sport of the Kingdom of Cambodia addressed, “After signing MOA with HWPL today, the Ministry will expand its implementation of peace education in educational institutions nationwide more broadly. Particularly, the Ministry would like to request HWPL’s assistance in the writing of books on peace education, its teaching methodology, the training of peace educators, and activities to spread a culture of peace in education sector in Cambodia. There was also a presentation of successful cases from teachers and education experts who were first in recognizing the excellence of HWPL’s peace education and have been at the forefront in implementing peace education for children and the youth.”
Particularly, Mr.Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, a peace activist, came to Cambodia to seek peace with the bishops of the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Justice and the state-run broadcasting station, and called on all people to become peace messengers for world peace.
HWPL is currently moving forward with a worldwide influence to bring DPCW, a new international law, to the United Nations. DPCW is a definte answer to peace that can end the war. Created by 21 international law experts, it is recognized not only sophisticated, but also it is aligned with UN Charter and SDGs.
The news of peace will continue to be heard. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to the 30th world peace tour. Because the 29th world peace tour has achieved tremendous results. You can see other postings.
