A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Human rights : Let me think for a moment Universal Declaration of Human Rights United Nations General Assembly United Nations UN Charter UDHR Pope Francis milestone human rights false hope All human beings     Maybe you can think a lot. If you see many violations of human rights, you can think ‘Isn’t it just a piece of paper? Help me not to have false hope.’ It is enough to make the angels weep. But if you have been lived without any problems, you can think ‘Isn’t it too obvious? From the time I was born, it was a matter of course.’ It is a really difficult issue. I wonder if we can solve it. Let’s have some coffee and get our thoughts straight. It is not to find the answer. Live with the answer!

Everything is lost in war. Everything is gained with peace” – Pope Francis

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)

After inaugural address, he said in interview that It’s time to finish a crazy things happening in Syria civil war. He added There are no winners and all losers in the Syria civil war. Even if there are divergence of opinion and disagreements between the United Nations member states, There is something more valuable. The value of Syria peace is necessary to us all. Guterres hoped that everyone will be acceptable to Syria peace.

In fact in Aleppo on where the most fierce battle is going, the government took control of region that rebels seized more than 90 per cent.
