As Romania holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union for the first half of 2019, a peace conference was held on 1-2 April in Bucharest. The conference was hosted by the ISACCL in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Romania, HWPL, Centre for BBS, University of Bucharest, SNSPA, FRD and Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Global Ethics.
HWPL was on 31st World Peace Tour. I’ve never heard of a private organization in a far and small country doing this. This is really a huge thing.
Hon. Emil Constantinescu, Former President of Romania, said “It is necessary to have political and military cooperation based on the mutual trust for the unification. If we plan with the foundation of the precedents of Eastern Europe’s transition from communism to democracy, along with international exchange, it will be of great help for us to establish worldwide governance that the whole world needs.”
Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, said “How would the world think of a people who point guns at each other? North and South Korean leaders should bear this in mind. As seen in the case of Germany, reunification should be achieved by the people, not politics or law. If North and South Korean people come forward to reunify, nothing will stop them.”
Mr. Dragomir Marian, President of Master Peace, said “Through Peace Education over 5 terms, we have educated children how to prevent and resolve conflicts and violence. Peace exists in the context of family, fellow groups, and societies. Through education, we have realized that teaching the principles of peace in the early stage of life can transform the youth to embrace peace.”
Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, said “Who should first be the teacher of children in the world? It is their families, their neighbors, and the society. For a peaceful world, it is not too late to start this work of peace now.”
IPYG Peace Letter Campaign Ads were put on the 27 newspapers of the United States, which send a letter to Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States. I can feel the hearts of American youth who truly desire a world without war and conflict!
International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) is one of two wings of HWPL, which affiliated with 805 organizations of 110 countries. The number of member is 4,600,000. Representative of IPYG said “The future owner is the youth. We should have the responsibility to lead the whole world. The first goal is to submit the DPCW to the UN General Assembly in the form of a draft resolution and have it adopted. Let us become all heroes of peace together”
So, IPYG Peace Letter Campaign is active in Washington D.C., South Africa, Indonesia, New Zealand, Namibia, Malaysia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, South Korea and others. In less than a year, 165,782 Peace Letters are sent to 193 incumbent presidents and Ambassadors to the U.N.
Also, Major media outlets like FOX, KTLA, NBC, ABC reported the youth’s movement for peace and a total of 599 online articles were released. Why are so many people interested? HWPL is famous for its great achievements in the shortest time. What have they achieved so far? Look for other posts.
I’ll show you a little taste. Why DPCW?
The international community has been regulating military actions through cooperation among countries in various forms, including treaties and agreements that restrict war, which is centering on the United Nations and other international organizations. But the limits are clear. Calls to regulate international disputes fairly through international law were continued, but international organizations and current international law lack binding force against all countries.
In a speech on the enactment of international law, the Chairman Man hee Lee of HWPL said, “How can you compensate for those who lost their lives? If what used to be is complete, there is no need to re-create. We need to create a new international law because the existing international law cannot end the war in this world, and NOW let’s create an ‘eternal international law’ so that we won’t have to fix it again. Instead of saying who is right and who is wrong, we have to actually work for this cause.”
An Open Letter to the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump
Dear Mr. President,
We are the youth of America
At such a crucial time within our nation’s history, we are urging your support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), a ground breaking peace law that many global leaders and heads of state are diligently working to have adopted by the UN General Assembly. It offers a legal framework for peaceful conflict resolution, the preservation of natural habitats, and the freedom of religion for all people. These causes align with American values and the hearts of American youth who truly desire a world without war and conflict. The DPCW protects what Americans deeply cherish, such as freedom and advancing peace around the world.
We believe that the work of peace is an inherent calling for every individual. As the acting President of the United States, your voice and support are a critical part of building a foundation of peace for future generations both here and abroad.
We sincerely hope that you will join our efforts by supporting the DPCW when it is introduced to the UN General Assembly. Many heads of state have already pledged their written support because they desire to end war and conflict. If we truly desire peace and love our country, how could we not support such a legislative solution to achieving peace together?
We request your reply and thank you for your service to our nation, Mr. President.
