Yemeni Civil War (2015 – present)

In 2014, Houthi rebels took control of the capital Sana’a and a large portion of northern Yemen. President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi and his cabinet fled to neighboring Saudi Arabia, where a Saudi-led coalition was formed to counter the Houthi rebellion. The Yemeni Civil War started. It is a humanitarian catastrophe. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) estimates that 14.1 million civilians are dangerously close to starvation.

  Total killed                    :         50,000+
  Civilians killed             :            6,592
  Wounded                     :         49,960
  Displaced                        :    3,154,572
  Child died of hunger  :          50,000+

A child dies in Yemen every 10 minutes from preventable causes, including severe acute malnutrition and vaccine-preventable disease. There are many complex problems. With the economy in free-fall, parents cannot afford to feed their children. Also water, health care and sanitation all collapsed.

Yemen Peace Education of Children

 Nevertheless, the children of Yemen wish that the fighting would stop. They have dreams of peace. They want to go to school and play in the park like children of other countries. I am deeply sorry for their story.

12-year-old Ala’a says “Peace means we don’t hear people talk about war. It means on TV I can watch cartoons instead of watching people die.” She teaches us many things. “I would like to tell them, ‘Do not kill our dreams.’ Stop the war so we can enjoy our childhood and achieve our dreams.” It is a real Peace Education. What can we do for them?


“Children have suffered terribly during more than three years of conflict — at least 6,000 have been killed or seriously injured by the fighting, while over 11 million need humanitarian assistance to survive.”
– UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta H. Fore

In conclusion, HWPL introduced Peace Education to promote the culture of peace. Thus far, about 165 educational institutions in 12 countries, including the United States, India, Israel, Indonesia, and the Philippines have reportedly offering the Programme.

In January, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in the Philippines established a cooperative relationship with HWPL to integrate Peace Education into the Curriculum of State Universities and Colleges.

CHED Commissioner Dr Ronald Adamat signed the Agreement, saying that it was a major achievement for HWPL. “Students would learn to uphold the principle of ‘Unity in Diversity’ and embrace the differences amongst people. They will be equipped with knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values in conflict resolution and peace work and be further encouraged to work for the cessation of wars, hostilities, and disunity.”

HWPL Chairman Man Hee Lee stressed the mission of global families to implement peace education: “This world is not only for adults but also for young children. War and conflict should no longer occur for children who are born in the future. There is a saying, “If the water above is pure, the water below will be pure”. Everyone in the global village should become a messenger of peace. Then our children will see the peaceful environment and learn from it naturally. If we walk all the way to peace together, the children who are born will also walk along the path of peace together, and peace will automatically be passed down as a legacy to future generations. There is no use in passing down a world of conflict.”

He also added, “Everyone has biological parents, but those who create their hearts are educators. I sincerely plea for educators to take the lead in creating a world of peace,” enlightening the educators who conduct peace education.

Nobel peace prize 2018, Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad

The Nobel Peace Prize 2018

The Nobel Peace Prize 2018 was awarded jointly to Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad “for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict.” Their contribution is focusing attention on, and combating, such war crimes. Berit Reiss-Andersen, Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, said “If we want people to say ‘no more war’, we have to show how brutal it is” in interview.

She also said, “Denis Mukwege is the helper who has devoted his life to defending these victims. Nadia Murad is the witness who tells of the abuses perpetrated against herself and others.”

“Each of them in their own way has helped to give greater visibility to wartime sexual violence, so that the perpetrators can be held accountable for their actions.”

Official : https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/peace/2018/press-release/

Denis Mukwege: “Justice is for Everyone”

The physician Denis Mukwege, a gynecologist and surgeon, has spent large parts of his adult life helping the victims of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Since the Panzi Hospital was established in Bukavu in 1999, Dr. Mukwege and his staff have treated thousands of patients who have fallen victim to such assaults. Most of the abuses have been committed in the context of a long-lasting civil war that has cost the lives of more than six million Congolese.

(CNN) Mukwege said he was in the middle of carrying out surgery in his hospital when he heard that he had won the award — and that he dedicated it to all survivors of sexual violence around the world.

“For almost 20 years I have witnessed war crimes committed against women, girls and even baby girls not only in my country, the Democratic Republic of Congo, but also in many other countries,” he said. “To the survivors from all over the world, I would like to tell you that through this prize, the world is listening to you and refusing to remain indifferent. The world refuses to sit idly in the face of your suffering.” He added that he was honored to be named alongside Murad, whom he praised for her strength and courage.

“Denis Mukwege is the foremost, most unifying symbol, both nationally and internationally, of the struggle to end sexual violence in war and armed conflicts. His basic principle is that ‘justice is everyone’s business,'” said Reiss-Andersen.

Nadia Murad: “Decide to be Honest”

Nadia Murad is herself a victim of war crimes. She refused to accept the social codes that require women to remain silent and ashamed of the abuses to which they have been subjected. She has shown uncommon courage in recounting her own sufferings and speaking up on behalf of other victims. In 2016, at age 23, she was made a UN goodwill ambassador for the dignity of survivors of human trafficking.

(CNN) Murad was in Cambridge, Massachusetts, when she learned she had won the prize. “I hope that it will help bring justice for those women who suffered from sexual violence,” she told a Nobel official.

In August 2014, the Islamic State (IS) launched a brutal, systematic attack on the villages of the Sinjar district. In Nadia Murad’s village, several hundred people were massacred. The younger women, including underage children, were abducted and held as sex slaves. While a captive of the IS, at her age 21, Nadia Murad was repeatedly subjected to rape and other abuses. Her assaulters threatened to execute her if she did not convert to their hateful, inhuman version of Islam. (The world support to eliminate #CoerciveConversion, another article) After a three-month nightmare, Nadia Murad managed to flee.

If you want to feel more vividly about the brutal situation, it is helpful to read her article. (The Guardian) This article begins with the sentence ‘The slave market opened at night.’ I admire her for her courage to tell the truth. Nadia Murad said “Deciding to be honest was one of the hardest decisions I have ever made, and also the most important.”

Gennady Burbulis Former President DPCW Article 10 DPCW Denis Mukwege Congo Confederation of Indian Bar CoerciveConversion CNN civil war Berit Reiss-Andersen Baltic-Black Sea Forum Alfred Nobel’s will   Berit Reiss-Andersen said, This year marks a decade since the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1820 (2008), which determined that the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict constitutes both a war crime and a threat to international peace and security. This is also set out in the Rome Statute of 1998, which governs the work of the International Criminal Court. The Statute establishes that sexual violence in war and armed conflict is a grave violation of international law. A more peaceful world can only be achieved if women and their fundamental rights and security are recognised and protected in war.


Alfred Nobel’s will
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.”

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize is firmly embedded in the criteria spelled out in Alfred Nobel’s will. Denis Mukwege and Nadia Murad have both put their personal security at risk by courageously combating war crimes and seeking justice for the victims. They have thereby promoted the fraternity of nations through the application of principles of international law.

So many people had to suffer and be sad because there was no peace. But 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”. Already, HWPL is creating a new order for the world. The purpose of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) is to end the war. If so, war crimes can be eliminated. Actually, DPCW has an article to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict.

Not at all, Law experts agreed that the DPCW is fully aligned with the UN Charter & the UDHR and this Declaration not only encapsulates and supports all of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

DPCW Article 1 – Prohibition of the threat or use of force

1. States should solemnly reaffirm that they refrain from the use of force in all circumstances, save where permitted by international law, and should condemn aggression as constituting an international crime.

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 3 – Friendly relations and the prohibition of acts of aggression

2. States have the duty to refrain from any forcible action that deprives peoples of their rights to self-determination.

4. States should promote accountability, including by investigating alleged violations of international law, in particular, grave violation of the Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocols, and should take measures to ensure that states, citizens and corporations do not contribute to the commission of violations of international law.

The reason of 80% of whold war is Ideology and Religion. DPCW is a fundamental and powerful solution.

DPCW Article 8 – Freedom of religion

2. States should activate and participate in systems to enforce and protect fundamental human rights, eliminating discrimination on the basis of religion or belief, and should refrain from and prohibit the usage of religion by governments, groups, or individuals in order to justify or to incite acts of violence against others. These systems should include, inter alia, judicial mechanisms.

DPCW Article 9 – Religion, ethnic identity and peace

3. Recognising the threat to peaceful coexistence that violent religious extremism may cause, states should implement, in good faith, legal measures against individuals or groups attempting to perpetrate or assist in gross and systematic acts of violence in the name of religion. Such measures should, in extreme cases, include the proscription of faith groups – including sects or cults – that perpetrate acts of violence against the territorial integrity and political independence of any state.

(b) a free media is maintained which allows grievances to be aired and addressed;
(c) education is imparted to promote respect and mutual understanding among different religious, belief and ethnic groups;

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.

“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.”

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.

‘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.

The IPYG is one of the two wings of HWPL and they are working with the Youth for world peace. With 851 organizations from 111 countries around the world, peace is being realized. (as of October 2017) How much faster do they run? They participated in more than 200 activities and events in 44 countries for peace. How long? ‘Just in this year!’ They show a great power. The reasons for that are eager for peace and youth. In particular, IPYG hosted the Peace Walk, which has been an annual event since 2013. They created a movement to promote the true culture of peace. It is based on Article 10 ‘Spreading a Culture of Peace‘ of the DPCW.

I think it is very important to nurture the youth becoming peace leaders with a sense of ownership in regard to the future.

WE YOUTHS,
SHARE the love given from above.
GATHER as one.

We’re working to bring the DPCW to the United Nations. And it needs the support of presidents in each country to be passed. So you can ask “What can I do?.” I’m going to give you a strong statement. Each country is made up of citizens and the president must listen to them. I really want to ask you. If you acknowledge that this is indeed the answer to peace, please be sure to support and urge your President to pass the DPCW to the United Nations. Then, this DPCW could be established as a real international law, which is the answer to peace. Therefore, your country and you will be remembered around the world as the leading country to support the law of peace for the first time.

Dear President Moon Jae-in

“Someone asked me. A young South African man said, ‘I want to convey my
opinion to the President of South Africa. But I don’t think the president will
listen to me.’ So I answered. And I’m going to tell you this because it applies
to us. ‘One person and One voice is weak. But if we come together, we are
stronger than anyone.’ Please remember. You’re not alone. We are one.

I’ll shout before finishing. We Are One!!! Thank you very much.” – IPYG

Furthermore, the agreed upon standards for determining a trustworthy religious scripture, which is the key component of the comparative study of scriptures done at the WARP Offices, were presented and ideas for a global peace media network were developed. Overall, the Summit provided an opportunity to seek ways to establish a cooperative network among international organizations, governments, and civil societies.

When tens of thousand people come together with a common goal, that goal begins to achieve. And I believe what is happening here is in this place. There are many parades! I introduce one of them.

You are creating a tank and a unification train. Which part of this should be viewed carefully?

“In the case of the tank, a key point to take notice of is how the cold and lethal weapons of death are transformed into agricultural tools that help people and give them joy. So, it becomes a world where there are no longer any weapons that kill people. In the case of the unification train, it shows how the unification of Korea, which is the world’s only divided nation, is able to give hope.

This is symbolized by the creation of a unification train which would allow people to go anywhere, not caring whether it is in South or North.”

Can you please introduce the performance that we will see from this Arirang Team?

“Our performance is a concert called Arirang Fantasy of Peace. It is a performance that expresses the idea of a peace that does not discriminate anyone, even though nationality, race, culture and religion may all be different. It brings together a traditional Korean song with traditional instruments, dances martial arts and other elements showing a harmonized global village full of excitement. This concert is a peace festival that represents the global village that will live in harmony and create peace.

It is during the performance of Ganggangsullae(강강술래), a traditional Korean dance, in the Arirang of Peace where one of our team members steps across the connected backs and shoulders of the others. This clearly demonstrates how a beautiful reality of peace is achieved through the combined sacrifice and effort of everyone involved.

Therefore, during practices not even one person could think selfishly, but instead had to willingly lend their back and shoulders. So, we carefully practiced with the mindset that I myself must hold hands and create peace along with everyone else.”

DPCW, an international law for Syria

Heartbeat, a song for Syria

Heartbeat, a song for Syria’ is sung by 10-year-old Ansam, a Syrian girl who was born blind. The song was written and composed by Zaid Dirani, Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, and world-famous pianist. It has a message of hope that Syria’s children want to get back their childhood. It’s like the voices of children shouting around the world. Amazingly, the video was filmed in Syria. The following are the lyrics of Heartbeat: (abbreviation)

‘Amid destruction and fire, our wound is deep
We want to say it loud, but our voice is weak
We may be children, but our cry comes from the heart

We want to say it loud: everything is possible
Together we can hope
Our hearts beat back to life
We want our childhood back’ 


Statistics about the Syrian civil war

Unicef, 2016

  • At least 652 children were killed – a 20 per cent increase from 2015 – making 2016 the worst year for Syria’s children since the formal verification of child casualties began in 2014.
  • 255 children were killed in or near a school.
  • More than 850 children were recruited to fight in the conflict, more than double the number recruited in 2015. Children are being used and recruited to fight directly on the frontlines and are increasingly taking part in combat roles, including in extreme cases as executioners, suicide bombers or prison guards.
  • There were at least 338 attacks against hospitals and medical personnel.

The Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was drafted by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee, which is comprised of prominent international law experts from 15 different countries, and was proclaimed on 14 March, 2016 in the form of a Preamble, 10 articles and 38 clauses. It is a bottom-up approach for global peace through establishing an international peace law. The strength of the DPCW lies in its representation of the voice of all those yearning for peace, calling on States to protect their rights to enjoy peaceful lives. The Legislate Peace Campaign is operated all over the world to support the DPCW. Now, they collected 734,055 signatures (as of October, 2017) and 173,170 people of 176 countries participated. The HWPL & DPCW are regarded by experts as the most powerful and substantial peace movement than others. Foreign media around the world are also paying attention to HWPL.

Legislate Peace Campaign

Dear family members of the global community,

The history of our world is replete with the tragedies of war. When wars break out, ordinary citizens, especially the youth and young adults, are forced out to fight on the battlefields and mothers must send their children into danger. In most instances, neither the youth nor their mothers would willingly suffer such loss and sacrifice. We are all born into the same world; and we live on the same land, under the same sky. All of us have the right to live in a war-free world in peace. And this right should be protected by law.

It is for this reason that we, the world's youth, women, and messengers of peace, support the Legislate Peace Campaign, an advocacy movement in support of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) being developed into an enforceable law. When such a law is implemented and enforced in all countries, wars will have no place on Earth and a culture of peace will finally be able to spread to all corners of the globe. We call on world leaders and governments to acknowledge the principles set out in the DPCW and to incorporate them into their national laws.

We must take action to achieve the global enjoyment of peace. Please join us in supporting the Legislate Peace Campaign to guarantee peace for all.

Let us Legislate Peace. Sign Your Support.

Review of the HWPL Newsletter

What is HWPL Newsletter

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Review of the HWPL Newsletter violence and war the Vision of HWPL The HWPL PR Team Spreading a culture of peace peace messengers pain News of Hope international law HWPL’s Newsletter HWPL DPCW authenticity Article 10 of the DPCW   Quite simply, It is the peace news. It is made of something happening all over the world within a single, small book every month. Surprisingly, it is made by the law. The HWPL Newsletter is based on Article 10 of the DPCW, “Spreading a Culture of Peace”. The advantage of this Newsletter is a high level of authenticity that is truly touching. It’s about time to listen Newsletter Editor‘s story. Hannah Jeon, Newsletter Editor said, “In just four short years since its establishment in 2013, HWPL and its many peace projects have received great interest and appreciation worldwide.” Why is it needed? “The HWPL Newsletter was created with the purpose of announcing the news of HWPL, which is now running for peace and justice in the global community with tens of thousands of peace messengers.”


The Starting Point is the Conveyance of the News of Hope to the World


What is the Vision of HWPL and Us?

The HWPL PR Team

Our limits? No. “The newsletter is not limited to only the stories of HWPL but instead seeks to find stories of peace messengers who share the same heart for peace.” Our vision is that “We are working to create a platform where all individuals are able to tell their own personal stories and explain for themselves their experiences with the processes and results of HWPL’s peace activities in their communities across the globe.” Thanks, Hannah. Listening to the story, I thought a lot. Why do we need peace? Because there is a war. Because there is a pain. All people, who are suffering from the unrelenting violence and war, share the same sadness. I feel a deep sadness because of the pain that is being experienced around the world. So what do we have to do? It is the reason why I love HWPL.

The ultimate object of HWPL

: The world of peace! which humanity has never experienced throughout all of history will be possible for the first time through HWPL. For this, the starting point is the conveyance of the news of hope to the world. It becomes the engine for the transmission of the values of the international law, inter-faith harmony and peace education that all aim for the world of peace.

You are the main character of HWPL’s Newsletter. As a loving family of peace living in this world together, let’s create a community that can share one another’s sorrow and joy. We must create the river of peace that all creation is dreaming of and leave it as an eternal legacy that can be inherited by future generations. Anything you would like covered regarding the news of peace is welcome, so please send us your comments.” – The HWPL PR Team

They have to teach their communities and of course they themselves have to meet with other religious leaders to find the solution for the problems in the world.

Actually, the alliance of religious leaders pursued by HWPL is greatly engaging many religious leaders in this world. Because in all of the world, in every country, many religious leaders gathered at one place and they are working together as one family.

I think this event [will have] a very good result in the future in this world. I think I met so many different religious leaders, because I knew a few religious leaders in Sri-Lanka in Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism before, but when I attended the HWPL WARP Summit, I could meet more religious leaders, discussing and talking with each other about how everyone wants to be happy and wants to be at peace. I acknowledge that HWPL is doing great in this part. I am also very happy to join the HWPL peace work so I try to do my best and make commitment for bringing forth peace with HWPL.”
