Today is the [D-DAY]
5th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace is starting! I’m here! I’ve been looking forward to this moment. Its title is ‘Resolving Conflicts and Spreading a Culture of Peace through the DPCW: Realizing Peace on the Korean Peninsula’. As you know expectations for peace on the Korean Peninsula have been rising since The Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula at 2018 inter-Korean summit. Young people, from 84 cities in 50 countries, cry out for peace with one voice. The vigor of the site can only be felt directly.
TOGETHER FOR A NEW START,
TOGETHER FOR PEACE
Why 5th Peace Walk is Different
As the international community is paying keen attention to the establishment of peace on the Korean Peninsula like the 2018 inter-Korean summit and the Korea-U.S. summit, HWPL has called for the realization of peace on the Korean Peninsula based on the civil society’s network, including youth and women throughout the world.
In particular, in conflict areas such as Iraq, Palestine and Afghanistan, young people and citizens is holding a peace walk with an earnest will to realize peace amid terrorism and war.
The Declaration of world peace, which was proclaimed on May 25, 2013 by HWPL, has called for the youth of the world to become the messenger of peace. Also, it suggests that we need the international law (DPCW) that can end the war. Why youth? The youth is the biggest victims of the war.
Why did the War take place?
- Wars of mankind : total 14,513 times.
- Reason of War: 80% Religious war
- Victims of War : 3.7 billion
- Nobel Peace prize rewarded : 124 times
How long should we wait? We can’t stand it anymore. It is so hard and painful. My family and friends are dying. Who can compensate you for their death? To Whom? What can you do? Money never can pay it back. Nothing can repay this!
HWPL’s Solutions : The Answer of Peace
Peace Letter to Presidents
Young people, from 84 cities in 50 countries, write peace letters to presidents of each country. How long? Until the president writes signature at DPCW! The wind of peace is already blowing all over the world. ‘World peace and restoration has begun at the same time this declaration is proclaimed.’, the Declaration of world peace. If 4,600,000 young people (IPYG) cry out for peace, what do you think will happen next? There will be an enormous wind.
DPCW is the ultimate solution
The current international law is open to war if necessary. This will not end the war. The only way for peace is DPCW. Chairman Lee proclaimed “HWPL has made peace agreements with present and former presidents and heads of state, chiefs justices of Supreme courts, university presidents, religious leaders, and the heads of international organizations, and this news has been broadcasted all around the world. The cessation of war and world peace will become a reality because everyone desires for peace rather than war” and finally “We have the answer to peace which is the DPCW.” I’m sure it will cure the world more beautifully. DPCW is the solution!!! Let’s become the messengers of peace!
