I am grateful that people like them are leaders. The Chairman Man hee Lee asked, “People who are gathered here, is there any want who want war?.”

No one answered.  The Chairman Lee continued that “War sacrifices many lives and destroys many buildings. If there is anyone who wants war, please raise your hand.” No one raised their hands. The Chairman Man hee Lee shouted, “When there’s war, who is the one who is fighting in front of battle line that is the youth. We are born in the same world, same generation, but their lives cannot blossom, but their lives are lost in the battle.”


What can compensate for their lives?

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! Many peace awards were given, but peace was achieved?

When the light of heaven shines in the hearts of people, it becomes the light that never fades away.”

The Chairman Lee continued “However, politics and laws could not compensate for the lives there was lost. Should we continue on this painful war? No matter how much money you spent builds your own house, if there is war, your building, your house will be broke down. God is peace. And we need to follow his will and achieve the world of peace. What religion talking about is peace. And the world of peace is salvation. This peace is not a matter of individual. It is the matter of the people in the earth. Therefore we need to become messengers of peace who achieve peace.”

The WARP Summit is widely known as the International Peace Festival, which has practical consequences. As a non-governmental peace organization, bringing people from various nations and all walks of life together is an astonishing feat. Participants say The WARP Summit is a unique event that supports humanity and peace spirit. The way in which we organize and coordinate events systematically is highly valued compared to other international events. Anyone who comes to this festival can fully experience the culture of heaven. In particular, the IPYG Card Section Performance, which 12,126 IPYG youth created, impressed various races and cultures and brought peace to the mind. The WARP Summit is becoming a world peace festival and giving the divided Korean Peninsula a new name of the nation of peace.

On September 18, 2014, two historic vows were made while the world watched, which developed into a major peace campaign of the HWPL. Leaders from various fields have fulfilled their mission and made up their minds to achieve it in this era. The noble cause t end war and keep peace for future generations is now a concrete goal before us. The WARP Summit is held to create a clear solution to achieve peace and sets a new standard for peace.

In order to fundamentally resolve international conflicts and crises, we have developed our work in a more specific and professional direction. The HWPL international law peace committee was founded to discuss ways to achieve peace through international law. It is composed of legal experts of different nationalities. After three formal committee meetings, the DPCW was drafted. On March 14, 2016, 10 articles and 38 clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was declared. Currently, there is a worldwide campaign to introduce the DPCW to the United Nations. The new international peace law, that the world is creating together, will change the history of mankind.

The WARP Office was established to resolve conflicts and misunderstandings among religious groups. The Chairman Man hee Lee’s clear religious guidelines lead religious people in the right direction today.

The Chairman Man hee Lee said, “If religions are in harmony with each other, there will be no reason to fight. To achieve harmony among religions, people of religion should examine and compare their scriptures to find the truth and become one in that truth. People of religion are responsible for leading people of the world in the right path.”

In the WARP Office, leaders from various religious groups gather to discuss religion and the Bible. It is being held in major cities around the world. The purpose of this comparative study of religious scriptures is to return religion to its original role and become one religion according to the creator’s will. The WARP Office promotes understanding and harmony among many religions in the world for the peace of mankind.

DPCW Law for Peace

Bottom-up approach for global peace through
establishing an international peace law

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 3 Peace Initiative : DPCW Law for Peace United Nations Sustainable Advocacy Efforts religions nationalities Legislate Peace Campaign legal framework Law for Peace international peace law HWPL ethnicities DPCW Law for Peace DPCW Comprehensive Bottom-Up Movement bottom-up approach   The status of today’s world can be traced back to the two tragic world wars of the last century. But it can found the United Nations. It was founded to respond to the atrocities of conflict and loss of human dignity. Since then, many international agreements and declarations have been developed. But additional challenges such as national and religious conflicts, cultural bias and ethnic hatred have hindered the movement of peace. And innocent civilians have to pay the price.

In this regard, HWPL thinks that the international society needs a comprehensive legal approach that guides citizens’ daily lives, regardless of their nationalities, ethnicities, and religions. To secure peace at both national and international levels, the invention of a legal framework in the form of an international agreement (law) will pave the way for developing peace processes in our world.

These essential objectives of HWPL are manifested in the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) drafted by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee, which is comprised of prominent international law experts from 15 different countries, and proclaimed on 14 March, 2016 in the form of a Preamble, 10 articles and 38 clauses.

Two Key Challenges

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 3 Peace Initiative : DPCW Law for Peace United Nations Sustainable Advocacy Efforts religions nationalities Legislate Peace Campaign legal framework Law for Peace international peace law HWPL ethnicities DPCW Law for Peace DPCW Comprehensive Bottom-Up Movement bottom-up approach

Comprehensive Bottom-Up Movement

Under the Law for Peace Initiative, HWPL engages substantially with civil society actors because peace cannot be sustained only through the voices of elites and institutionalized processes. Going beyond all divisional lines, HWPL suggests a civil society function in peace-building, which aims at the implementation of citizens’ advocacy and the voluntary practice of democratic values, thus fostering a culture of peace.

The main activities within this function are carried out under the Legislate Peace Campaign, a bottom-up approach for peaceful conflict resolution through establishing an international peace law. More leaders in politics, legal fields, the press, and faith-based organizations are acknowledging the greater involvement of civil society within the initiative and have implemented joint activities advocating for the ultimate peace system that can encompass all States and peoples.

Sustainable Advocacy Efforts

Civil society actors and government representatives working with HWPL ensure that they will continue to call for a successful Law for Peace Initiative based on governmental and nongovernmental cooperation, thereby building participatory structures which allow sustainable peace settlement. When an international legal framework compatible with the DPCW is established and holds all States accountable for peaceful conflict resolution and ceasing war-like activities, HWPL believes that it will eradicate the structural causes of violent conflicts. This is the source of the sustainable advocacy efforts.

What is the necessity of world?

How does the world go now? The necessity of the measure arises for integrating cultural diversity into development frameworks and policies. According to the trend of world, this conference aimed to reinforce international cooperation to ensure intercultural dialogue as a foundation for the effective exercise of universal human rights. In fact, many of the leaders told their experiences.

H.E. Mr. Francisco Alberto Gonzalez of Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Colombia stated, “My countries have gone through one of the longest armed conflicts in our hemisphere. Two Colombians, one with a strong state presence, and another with a series of inequalities and no opportunities. That is why recognizing our opportunities and dialogues are needed. We, a very diverse country, know by experience that disarmament is not enough to create peace. We must not underestimate the need for peace and stable development.”

Yemen boy was buried in a cold graveyard

On October 13, 2015, six-year-old Fareed Shawky in Yemen is playing with a ball with his friends as usual. Then suddenly, the worst tragedy in this  tiny Yemen boy’s life occurred. A missile fell to the house with a roaring sound and in a flash, his house was in chaos. With shrapnel lodged in his head, he whispered in ear ‘Don’t bury me‘. But shortly after, small Yemen boy was buried in a cold graveyard. In 1994, the first civil war broke out in Yemen after Royalists of the existing reign was retreated by the coup by Republicans. Then, there were large and small wars that can’t see. According to BBC, this war is known as ‘Silence of War’ since the world major media paid less attention compared to the gravity of the situation.

The United Nations held a ‘High-Level Pledging Event for the Humanitarian Crisis in Yemen’ attended by senior figures in 60 international organizations and NGOs from 72 countries in Geneva on 25 April 2017.

Some experts emphasize that the fundamental approaches are necessary to put an end to repetitive conflicts.
“Along with binding mechanisms including international agreements and legal framework in the country, creating a culture of peace that promotes the mindset of peacebuilding through the participation of all sectors is of tremendous importance to achieve immediate ceasefire and sustainable peace,” emphasized Mr. Ian Seo, general director of department of public relations, HWPL HQ.

Mr. Hrant Bagratyan, the former Prime Minister of Armenia, said “The DPCW will be a good instrument against extremism, terrorism, war, and associations that will be a good base for the sustainability of peace” regarding the DPCW.

We all have to support what we have to do with the same hearts. It is for living. Will you leave money and authority to our future generation who will live in this global village? There is nothing better than leaving a legacy to the future generation after achieving the world peace

2017 Nobel Peace prize : ICAN

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Why can ICAN win? United Nations Trump TPNW NPT Norwegian Nobel Committee Konstantin Kosachev Kim Jong-Un ICAN HWPL ground-breaking efforts Gandhi CTBT 2017 Nobel Peace Prize     Nobel prize is always famous. At this time of every year, the news of  winning the award are abuzz. This year was no exception. This year, the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2017 to ICAN. ICAN is the abbreviation for International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons. Nobel Committee said “They are receiving the award for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons.” But still many people wondered ‘Why ICAN?’. I can understand them. Because me too.

“The said interest shall be divided into five equal parts, which shall be apportioned as follows: /- – -/ one part to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” –  the will of Alfred Nobel

Why can ICAN win?

  ICAN  is a coalition of non-governmental organizations in one hundred countries promoting adherence to and implementation of the United Nations nuclear weapon ban treaty. It has 468 partner organizations in 101 countries(by ICAN homepage) The amazing  thing is that ICAN was launched on April 2007! Now do you understand? There are a lot of peace groups to contribute really hard toward the world. Just last year, there are a lot of a prominent candidates. It is a last year posting of Nobel peace prize. Here : 2016 Nobel peace prize : Colombia peace agreement “It is passed. Now remaining task is ‘implementation’ Finally we could know ‘The Norwegian Nobel Committee want to tell something‘.  The message is about nuclear weapons. The North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un maybe contributed much to Nobel Peace Prize.

What is ground-breaking efforts?

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Why can ICAN win? United Nations Trump TPNW NPT Norwegian Nobel Committee Konstantin Kosachev Kim Jong-Un ICAN HWPL ground-breaking efforts Gandhi CTBT 2017 Nobel Peace Prize   ICAN was formed by the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War which won the Nobel peace Prize in 1985. Their mission is to turn atmosphere of disarmament debate. Founders of ICAN were inspired by the success of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines. Successfully on 7 July 2017, The Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) is adopted at the United Nations by a vote of 122-1! The ICAN said ‘TPNW‘ is “a landmark international agreement that outlaws, categorically, the worst weapons of mass destruction and establishes a pathway to their elimination.

But since adoption, it was criticized for non-binding.
  When voted of 122-1, one third of 193 U.N. member countries boycotted the vote. ‘Authorized’ nuclear nations, U.S, Russia, China, UK, France boycotted. Also ‘Unauthorized’ nuclear nations, India, Pakistan,  Israel, North Korea boycotted. The number of actual signature is 53 countries. So actually we can’t expect the whole effect. But the only way to eliminate World War III is to eliminate all nuclear weapons. I am reminded of Gandhi’s quotes. “There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.”

Reaction of The United States and Russia

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Why can ICAN win? United Nations Trump TPNW NPT Norwegian Nobel Committee Konstantin Kosachev Kim Jong-Un ICAN HWPL ground-breaking efforts Gandhi CTBT 2017 Nobel Peace Prize     The U.S. reacted coldly. The U.S. State Department said “Unfortunately, we are seeing a deterioration in the overall security environment and growing nuclear capabilities of certain states. This treaty will not make the world more peaceful, will not result in the elimination of a single nuclear weapon, and will not enhance any state’s security.” The U.S., Britain and France said the prohibition wouldn’t work and would end up disarming their nations.
“This treaty will not make the world peaceful

The head of the Russia Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev said, “This is now the real front of struggle for peace, not the romance of a nuclear-free future we all, probably, too would like to.” Also it is“not only misleading but also very dangerous opinion, which stimulates the proliferation of weapons and undermines the process of international disarmament.”

 “Nuclear weapons are illegal. Threatening to use nuclear weapons is illegal. Having nuclear weapons, possessing nuclear weapons, developing nuclear weapons, is illegal, and they need to stop.”
ICAN’Message to Trump and Kim Jong Un

HWPL’s DPCW vs TPNW

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Why can ICAN win? United Nations Trump TPNW NPT Norwegian Nobel Committee Konstantin Kosachev Kim Jong-Un ICAN HWPL ground-breaking efforts Gandhi CTBT 2017 Nobel Peace Prize   First, TPNW vs NPT
 TPNW contributed to the continued role of the NPT, emphasizing its “vital role in promoting international peace and security”.
  • There is the distinction between states entitled to possess such weapons and non-nuclear weapon states in NPT. But in TPNW it is not.
  • The TPNW also forbids states party to the treaty from allowing “any stationing, installation or deployment” of nuclear weapons on their territory, a prohibition that is not explicitly included in the NPT
  • States party to the TPNW are prohibited from conducting nuclear tests, while the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) has not yet entered into force
Beyond Nuclear Disarmament

Do you know HWPL‘s DPCW(the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War)? The purpose of DPCW is to end the war. If so, the nuclear disarmament is a natural consequence. Actually DPCW has an article of elimination of nuclear weapons. I know many people think it is a naive desire. But the success of ICAN already show you ‘the world is changing‘. Simply we just walked the path to peace.

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE 2017 Nobel Peace Prize Why can ICAN win? United Nations Trump TPNW NPT Norwegian Nobel Committee Konstantin Kosachev Kim Jong-Un ICAN HWPL ground-breaking efforts Gandhi CTBT 2017 Nobel Peace Prize

  • DPCW Article 1 Prohibition of the threat or use of force
  • 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 2 – War potential 
  • 2. States should not produce, assist in, encourage, or induce; the production of weapons of mass destruction, inter alia, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, or weapons capable of causing indiscriminate or widespread and unnecessary suffering, or weapons incompatible with international humanitarian law.
  • 3. States should take measures to ensure that existing weapons of mass destruction, weapons capable of causing widespread and unnecessary suffering and weapons incompatible with international humanitarian law are gradually dismantled or destroyed. States should cooperate in disarmament and the reduction of arms stockpiles, ideally under international supervision. Decommissioned weapons manufacturing facilities should be repurposed, so that they may serve purposes that are beneficial to humanity in general.

“To live according to a Heavenly culture is to live according to the principles and values of heaven, a place that gives light, rain and air without boundaries.” – the chairman of HWPL

António Guterres emphasized that The end of the Syria civil war is more urgent than any other issue. Also He shouted ‘The United Nations should be changed.’

“Our most serious shortcoming — and here I refer to the entire international community – is our inability to prevent crises.”

“The United Nations system has not yet done enough to prevent and respond to the appalling crimes of sexual violence and exploitation committed under the UN flag against those we are supposed to protect.”

“We want the world our children inherit to be defined by the values enshrined in the United Nations Charter:  peace, justice, respect, human rights, tolerance and solidarity.  All major religions embrace these principles, and we strive to reflect them in our daily lives.” – Inaugural address(12 DECEMBER 2016)
