Is peace close to us? Isn’t it just words?
I think peace is the highest thing a man can do. Why do people start a war? I think it’s because of selfishness. It’s about falling into a sweet swamp. The swamp people don’t care about others at all.
Isn’t it hard for us to make ends meet? Why should we care about people who don’t even know their faces? Here is the answer.
HWPL’s 9th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace will be held online on 25 May 2022.
On 25 May 2013, not only was HWPL established, but Chairman Man Hee Lee drafted and proclaimed the Declaration of World Peace. The declaration embodies basic principles to build a peaceful world, and seeks to guarantee peace through legal instruments such as international law.
The annual commemoration was planned to remember the spirit instilled in the Declaration of World Peace proclaimed before the World Peace Gate in Seoul, South Korea, on 25 May 2013, and the meaning behind the civil society-led Peace Walks held worldwide.
The world today is seeking ways to promote the institutionalization of peace to safeguard lives and ensure safety from the threats of daily conflicts and war.
International organizations such as the UN, the AU, and the EU are widening research on normative guidelines to peacefully address current conflicts.

This year, HWPL has proposed the institutionalization of peace as a process to establish stable and sustainable peace through the collective will for peace. The collective will to create a world free of war comes from the individuals and groups who engage in the concerted efforts for peace that transcends national borders.
The 9th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace will provide the proof that having citizens continue to march on is the engine for us to get closer to peace even amid the crisis of illnesses and wars.
To this end, various peace projects HWPL is carrying out together with diverse partners will be explained as cases of realizing the collective will and institutionalizing peace.

One thought on “[9th HWPL] 525 Peace Walk is a huge, unstoppable flow”
3,000 participants from politics, religion, academia, and media joined in this event and 730,000 citizens from 176 countries have signed in support of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). The DPCW was conceived by HWPL Chairman Lee, a 92-year-old Korean War veteran who has embarked on 31 peace tours to garner support for the DPCW from politicians, Heads of State, religious leaders, academics and youth. I truly believe that the DPCW will permanently cease the cruelty of war. No mother should lose her son to war. Please support it.
