On March 14th, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) held the 3rd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). Around 30,000 participants who want peace were gathered to support the legislation of the DPCW as international law. This celebration held all over the world, and in Washington, D.C.
HWPL’s peace movements are assessed by experts as they have never really seen them. In other words, it is unusual to achieve such achievements in such a short period of time. Their movements are like lightning and they are working at the risk of their lives.
Especially, On March 14, 2019, all young men and women sent peace letters to world leaders. It is the “Peace Letter” Campaign. In less than a year, 165,782 Peace Letters were collected. The main content is that “If you really love the country and the people, please support the DPCW, the definite answer to peace. I hope you’re not remembered as the president who wanted a war for future generations. Please write back.”
Campaigns are being held in 83 cities around the world, including South Korea, the United States, Germany, Britain, Australia, South Africa and Turkey. Peace letters, which were collected through the campaign, were delivered to heads of 193 countries on 14th of March.
