US Iran Crisis: UN Secretary General said “World cannot afford Wars”

How will “US Iran Crisis” play out in 2020?

The assassination by the US of Iran’s most powerful general, Qasem Soleimani, has caused an escalation in tensions between the two countries.

In the wake of an Iranian ballistic missile attack on air bases which house US forces in Iraq, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres reiterated his call for the United States and Iran to stop the conflict and pursue peace.

President Trump’s speech after Iran’s strike

As a reaction to Iran’s strike, Donald Trump said “Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.

Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they chanted “death to America.”

Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognize this reality.

Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process.

Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran: We want you to have a future and a great future — one that you deserve, one of prosperity at home, and harmony with the nations of the world.”

These are just a summary of what I think is important in his speech. If you want to read the full speech, just click on the video and the link below.

UN Secretary General said “The world cannot afford Wars”

In a brief media address, Guterres said “we are living in dangerous times” worldwide as “geopolitical tensions are at their highest level this century.”

Also in a statement released by his Spokesperson, Stéphane Dujarric, on Monday António Guterres made a passionate appeal for peace.

His message to world leaders was simple:

Stop escalation. Exercise maximum restraint. Re-start dialogue”, and “renew international cooperation.

This appeal remains as important today as it was on Monday.

For his part, the Secretary-General will continue his active engagement with relevant actors. “It is our common duty to make every effort to avoid a war in the Gulf that the world cannot afford.  We must not forget the terrible human suffering caused by war.  As always, ordinary people pay the highest price.

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General, said like this.

Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, emphasized the importance of not using weapon for dialogue. European countries such as Britain and France have also appealed for easing tensions.

I also think we can’t afford war. It’s really unclear whether our future will be a tragedy or a happy one. In fact, our daily lives begin again tomorrow. I don’t think we have many options. Forget it or fight it. I hope we risk our lives for peace.

Because peace is just as valuable, and war is too painful to be explained in words. The aftereffects are enormous. Who can be held accountable?

2019 Nobel Peace Prize Winner: Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali

Do you know the
2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner?

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2019 to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and in particular for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighbouring Eritrea. The prize is also meant to recognise all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.

After he heard the news of the award of Nobel Peace Prize, he said “I was so humbled and thrilled when I just heard the news. Peace is a very expensive commodity in my country.” (If you want to hear more)

When Abiy Ahmed became Prime Minister in April 2018, he made it clear that he wished to resume peace talks with Eritrea. In close cooperation with Isaias Afwerki, the President of Eritrea, Abiy Ahmed quickly worked out the principles of a peace agreement to end the long “no peace, no war” stalemate between the two countries.

Peace does not arise from the actions of one party alone. When Prime Minister Abiy reached out his hand, President Afwerki grasped it, and helped to formalise the peace process between the two countries. In Ethiopia, even if much work remains, Abiy Ahmed has initiated important reforms that give many citizens hope for a better life and a brighter future.

In line with this joyful news, there are so many efforts to achieve peace in Ethiopia.

On the 19th of October, the 2019 Ethiopia Peace Press Forum was held at the meeting hall of IPSS in Ethiopia, and Ethiopian journalists were in attendance. The theme of the forum was the “Realization of Peace Journalism and Public Journalism.”

They emphasized the role of a journalist in spreading the news of peace. Attendees also discussed freedom of expression based on Article 19 of the Declaration of Human Rights.

In addition, the journalists who attended the forum wrote and signed the Pledge of Peace Initiative, in which they promised to deliver peace news through the platform called Peace Initiative (PI) (http://peaceinitiative.net) and participate in peace projects. HWPL is running a Peace Initiative platform with journalists all over the world. This platform raises awareness of peace based on social atmosphere and the freedom of speech and press, and aims to ensure that the news of peace, which contributes to conflict resolution, can be delivered to people from all over the world.

Mr. Zelalem Girma, the Senior Editor to the Ethiopian Herald and who has participated in the Peace Initiative, emphasized the importance of a peace news channel saying, “Peace Initiative (PI) is a global journalist network in efforts of facilitating a culture of peace as contribution to conflict resolution and peace building through press freedom and freedom of information stipulated in the UN resolutions and international agreements. Individual journalists and media agencies affiliated with PI dedicate to spreading news of peace to enhance human rights and protect democracy.”

On 9th of July, 2018, Ethiopia and Eritrea declared an end to the conflict that has been raging for 20 years, thus promoting further peace and prosperity within Africa. Immediately after that, the work of peace was done quickly. The 2018 Addis Ababa Summit was held in Medium CR, African Union Commission and co-hosted by international organizations including the Inter-African Committee on Traditional Practices (IAC), the International Law Association (ILA) and HWPL. Politicians from Africa and the Middle East discussed the need for an international law for peace to bring out stability in the region and promote peace-related projects at all levels of society.

Mrs. Dagmawit Moges, Deputy Mayor of Addis Ababa’s municipal government, gave a speech at the event and addressed the participants saying, “Addis Ababa city administration has a deep conviction that the launching of peace education in the universities could help promote harmony among students regardless of their nationalities, cultural background and religions.” She emphasized the necessity of the integration of peace education and also stated that the City Administration will pledge to extend every support necessary to institutions engaged in the implementation of this peace education project. An MOU agreeing to implement HWPL’s peace education curriculum was also signed by the university representatives in attendance laying the foundation for peace education in Ethiopia.

On 17th of July 2019, Jayathma Wickramanayake, the UN’s Youth Envoy, visited the Security Council on Wednesday with a simple message “young people care about peace.” She said especially young women can be labelled on a “small minority” easily. These stereotypes and myths skew young people’s full potential for peace. The fact is that most young people are in fact not involved in violence.

“In the past months I have noticed with grave concern, incidents of young peacebuilders and young human rights defenders being subjected to threats, intimidation, violence, arbitrary arrest and retaliation by State and non-State Actors.” She emphasized the need to protect these young peacebuilders.

She reminded the Council that the Youth, Peace and Security agenda is being recognized and institutionalized within the UN as “core” to the Organization’s priorities for young people. So, the UN Youth Strategy, Youth 2030, will promote an environment that recognizes young people’s important and positive contributions to peace and security, while creating safe spaces and expanding opportunities for young people.

I totally agree with her. Young people have enormous potential. Protect them and help them grow tremendously. There’s something she and the young men of the United Nations are pushing now, and I think it’s so good that I’d like to introduce it. #Youth4Peace #Youth2030

At the First International Symposium on Youth Participation in Peace Processes, which was held last March in Finland, the youth envoy officially launched the policy paper “WE ARE HERE: An Integrated Approach to Youth-Inclusive Peace Processes.” (Here)

António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, said “It analyses how young people can influence such efforts using diverse and innovative approaches. Around the world, young women and men are striving for justice, inclusion, gender equality and human rights. We must make the most of their power as drivers of a culture of peace.”

In the last two decades, over 1,000 peace agreements have been signed globally. It is estimated that 408 million youth live in a state or province affected by armed conflict. The co-authors, Ali Altiok and Irena Grizelj, said “No comprehensive studies have assessed the role and impact of young people in these peace agreements. This paper takes the first step towards providing emerging evidence that youth inclusion in peace processes can yield positive results.”

All we need for ‘We Are Here’
is ‘We Are One’

I’m reading this paper. Looking at it, I feel confident that peace can be achieved. How? Only, it would be necessary for all of us to work together as one. All we need for ‘We Are Here’ is ‘We Are One’. I also remember International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), a youth peace organization that is emerging most recently. It is a subsidiary organization of HWPL, international peace NGO affiliated with the UN ECOSOC and the UN DGC.

IPYG shouts “We Are One!!!”

IPYG, which represents 1.8 billion young people, is affiliated with 805 organizations of 110 countries. The number of total members is 4,600,000. In IPYG Peace Letter Campaign, youth of 23 countries have participated and the handwritten peace letters have been delivered to 9 former/current presidents and prime ministers in 8 countries.

On 14th of March 2019, all youth of the world had sent to their respective President or Prime Minister in 192 countries with the expectation of a response from these heads of state. On 25th of May 2019, the “6th IPYG Peace Walk” was held in around 126 locations in 77 countries around the world, including Australia, China, Germany, India, Russia, South Africa, the Philippines, and United States of America. (What is Peace Walk?) There is enthusiastic support from young people all over the world, and this huge flow is unstoppable.

Peace One Day and HWPL Everyday

On 29 May 2019, the 6th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace and the Peace Walk took place at Ecole Fondamentale Lafia De Kalaban-Koro in Bamako, Mali. The event was hosted by the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) and supported by a peace advocate group called Peace One Day. Leaders from various sectors, including government and NGO and more than 300 youth, participated in the event.

The Peace Walk event was hosted for the first time in Mali and it filled the hearts of the youth and event participants with an overwhelming sense of hope. Due to the recent breakout of civil war in Mali few months ago, Malian people have been in urgent need of peace. Afterwards, those students had an opportunity to write their own peace letters. A total of 85 hand-written peace letters are to be sent to the president of Mali, together with other hand-written peace letters.

Let’s find out about Peace One Day who helped HWPL.

Peace One Day is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1999. In 2001 the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of “global ceasefire and non-violence” on 21 September – Peace Day. Since 2001, Peace One Day’s objective is making it a day that is “self-sustaining”, an annual day of “global unity”, a day of “intercultural cooperation on an unprecedented scale.”

UN GA Resolution – A/RES/55/282 / Peace One Day

The founder is an actor turned filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. After a carrer as an actor, Jeremy began making films in 1995 and in 1999. And making a movie was a big boost to Peace One Day. In 1998, Gilley began to make the Peace One Day documentary, eventually deciding to aim for a UN resolution formalising the idea. This goal was reached in 2001. In 2004, the Peace One Day documentary premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) and the BBC.

He and his friends, who had nothing at first, recklessly wrote letters. He said “And we wrote to heads of state, their ambassadors, Nobel Peace laureates, NGOs, faiths, various organizations — literally wrote to everybody. And I remember the first letter. One of the first letters was from the Dalai Lama, saying ‘This is an amazing thing. Come and see me. I’d love to talk to you about the first ever day of peace.'”

That’s how it continued to evolve and results began to emerge. In Afghanistan, 70% reduction in violent incidents was recorded by United Nations Department of Safety and Security on Peace Day 2008. In 2016, after several years work with global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company, it was estimated that 2.2 billion people had been exposed to the Peace Day message, that 940 million were aware of the day and that 16 million behaved more peacefully as a result. It’s a brilliant idea and has a distinct ripple effect. But there is an international peace NGO that has developed this a little bit.

Global ceasefire & Non-violence Everyday

“The Complete End of War and Eternal Peace”It is the goal of the HWPL. Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) is affiliated with the UN ECOSOC and the UN DGC. And International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) is its youth organization. In order to achieve its goal, HWPL is trying every year, with a higher growth rate than any other peace organization. Experts and journalists evaluate HWPL as a practical and powerful organization.

On May 25th, “6th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace and the Peace Walk” was held at about 126 places in 77 countries around the world including Australia, China, Germany, India, Russia, South Africa, the Philippines, and United States of America. These millions of people gathered to urge Support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). It is the HWPL‘s most groundbreaking answer to peace.

Introduction of the DPCW to the UN

What is the problem of existing international law? It is not legally binding and it is allowing war in part. So 21 prominent international law experts from 15 different countries made 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW. DPCW has only been proclaimed for three years, but it’s been a startling development of national and global support for citizens around the world.

It has received formal support from the Pan-African Parliament, the Council of Ministers of the Pacific Islands, the Central American Parliament (PARLACEN), and the former presidents of Eastern Europe, as well as MOUs and official documents. Also, when the Chairman Man Hee Lee introduced the DPCW at UN headquarters, delegates from 145 countries gave a standing ovation.

From a civil society perspective, more than 1.3 million citizens around the world support DPCW with signatures and IPYG Peace Letter Campaign. On March 14, citizens from all over the world wrote more than 200,000 letters of peace and sent them to presidents and prime ministers of 192 countries to urge the need for DPCW and support from countries. And the media from around the world reported it extensively, and the world cheered when they heard the news.

In my personal view, every peace organization seems to be absolutely wonderful. Wouldn’t world peace be too easy if all the world’s peace organizations were united, regardless of their own interests? But the core will be needed. I’m sure it’s HWPL that has the power to bring everyone together. We Are One!

Parasite movie review “Where does peace flow?”

Have you seen Bong Joon-ho’s parasite movie? I first knew when Professor Parasitology introduced me that there was a movie about parasites. At that time, there were hairworms, roundworms and pinworms on the screen. When the Horsehair (Gordian worm) enters the body of a praying mantis, it jumps into the water and kills itself. The reason is that the parasite becomes an adult, lives and lays eggs in the water. So I thought it might be a disaster movie where people all become zombies like Resident Evil.

And I was even more excited to hear that it won the PALME D’OR at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival. It is the first Korean movie to win in Cannes. According to a local report from the Cannes Film Festival, “Parasite” received two rounds of applause comparable to a standing ovation from the audience during its official screening. The first round of applause broke when Song Kang-ho picked up something from the trash can, and the second round of applause when a figure in the movie struck with feet. After the screening, a standing ovation followed the custom of the Cannes Film Festival, which extended unexpectedly for Eight minutes.

Song Kang-ho: “How long do I need to keep clapping?”
Bong Joon-ho: “Yeah, I’m hungry.”

This conversation came out in the middle of applause, and it’s so funny to me. It was also a big talk on social media. Also, it was the 22nd unanimous award of the jury in Cannes history. “It’s such a unique experience. It’s so unexpected,” Iñárritu raved about “Parasite.”

He said “It took all of us sharing our experiences. We shared the mystery of the unexpected way this film took us through different genres and mixed them and spoke in a funny, humorous, tender way with no judgment of something so irreverent and urgent. It’s so global but in such a local film. We were all fascinated by it since we saw it. It kept growing and growing. It was a unanimous decision.”

The Life of the Lower Classes

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Parasite movie review "Where does peace flow?" Song Kang-ho Parasite movie review Parasite movie PALME D'OR Korean movie HWPL Horsehair Gordian worm from bottom to top Bong Joon-ho 72nd Cannes Film Festival

In the late 2010s, the Cannes Film Festival’s propensity is found to be paying attention to “the story of families belonging to the socially vulnerable.” It is also analyzed that this tendency led to the award of parasites. In fact, this is what I want to talk about.

In order to meet the upper class in the film, you have to keep going up, the lower class lives under the radius, and the camera keeps coming down. Many of the devices with messages in the movie hurt more. One is a “smell” that reveals a lower class. Can’t get away and stimulate the upper class. Also, “plan” also throws a message. In the movie, Kitaek claims that “No plan is the plan.” Eventually, with a wild plan, the movie ends like that. The reality is still a mess.

After the movie, I felt very depressed. It was more sad because it was often around us. The gap between the haves and have-nots will be greater across the globe. The world’s richest 1 percent, those with more than $1 million, own 45 percent of the world’s wealth. Adults with less than $10,000 in wealth make up 64 percent of the world’s population but hold less than 2 percent of global wealth. (more info) How close are you to this?

“Where does peace flow?”

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Parasite movie review "Where does peace flow?" Song Kang-ho Parasite movie review Parasite movie PALME D'OR Korean movie HWPL Horsehair Gordian worm from bottom to top Bong Joon-ho 72nd Cannes Film Festival

But I know that I’ll soon forget these facts. What is peace? It’s really hard to practice and try. But there are still people who try to make peace on their feet. One of them, one of them, got together, became a small stream, became a river, and became a big waterfall. No one can stop it now. This huge flow will soon transform the whole world. Those who risk their lives for peace, they are HWPL.

“Where does peace flow?” Peace certainly flows from bottom to top. If citizens all over the world were to become one voice, who could stop it? The president will also have to listen to the voices of citizens. That’s what HWPL is doing now, and it’s doing great. Someday that one powerful force will be known to all over the world, and you will be surprised. If you want to know more about HWPL, look at the other posts.

Sri Lanka Explosion, Who’s Behind the Scenes?

According to Yonhap News Agency on 21st of April, Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, and its surrounding areas have seen eight explosions since the morning of that day. In particular, Catholic churches and hotels frequented by foreigners during Easter worship were attacked in downtown Colombo or nearby. Police said at least two explosions were believed to have been caused by a suicide bomb, but no group claiming to be behind the attack has emerged.

Sri Lanka has a painful history of losing more than 100,000 lives by the end of 2009, 26 years after the civil war between the Sinhalese (74.9%) and Tamils (11.2%).

Religious Reason > Ethnic Reason

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE Sri Lanka Explosion, Who's Behind the Scenes? WARP OFFICE Sri Lanka scriptures Religious war NEGOMBO HWPL Intercontinental WARP Office Meeting HWPL
NEGOMBO. the scene before the bomb went off / Ronald Saunders / flickr

However, there is a strong possibility that the attack was caused by religious reasons rather than by ethnic conflict. This is because Catholics, who account for more than 6 percent of Sri Lanka’s population, often served as mediators when it comes to ethnic conflict, as they are a mixture of
Sinhalese and Tamils. It is also more persuasive to this argument that the timing of the outbreak was timed to coincide with Easter worship, the Catholic anniversary.

The majority (70.2 percent) of Sri Lanka’s residents believe in Buddhism, with Hindus and Muslims accounting for 12.6 percent and 9.7 percent, respectively.

Sri Lanka’s Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims are said to be antagonistic toward each other, but they are said to have shown common hostility to Christianity due to their experiences of being oppressed during colonial rule of Portugal, the Netherlands and Britain since the 16th century.

In addition, during the civil war, Tamil massacred Muslim civilians, saying that Batacaloa belonged to them, and the number of ultra-rightist Buddhists cracking down on minority religions has increased recently. There is a possibility that it could be the ISIS, an international terrorist organization.

So What can we do?

Of the global wars so far, 80 percent are caused by religion and ideology. This alone shows how many people have suffered. Besides, when eight bombs go off, who can compensate for the casualties(258)? What are you going to do with that trauma and anxiety? What if my family died? Whatever the circumstances, the result is a terrible tragedy.

So… What is religion? Is teaching in religion a war? Not at all. Everyone teaches peace, how to live well. They want to live morally. But why does religion have this effect? So religious leaders got together to fix it. It is the HWPL WARP Office.

Leaders of each religion gather to talk about what the religion should do and peace. It is shocking to see different religions come together. However, since there are differences of opinion, don’t you think they can fight? Here comes the most innovative way of HWPL. It is a comparison of the “scriptures of each religion”.

Every year on 1st of March, the Flag of South Korea (Hangul: 태극기) is placed everywhere in Korea. The March 1st Movement Day, also known as Sam Il Jeol (Hangul: 삼일절), can be seen as a symbol of the Korean Independence Movement. Korea was a colony of Japan from 1910 into 1945. The pain and sorrow of being a colony are beyond description.

At 2 p.m. on 1st of March, 1919, 33 ethnic representatives read out loud the Korean Declaration of Independence. The declaration, which begins with the following words, is truly touching. “We herewith proclaim the independence of Korea and the liberty of the Korean people.” What kind of feelings did people have at that time?

“The March 1st Independence Movement was the declaration and the act by which the Korean people spoke out about the value of independence, peace, democracy and human rights.”

President Moon Jae-in
For more information

Massive crowds assembled in Pagoda Park to hear the declaration that a student, Jae-yong Chung, read publicly. He shouted “No power in this world can obstruct or suppress it!” Approximately 2,000,000 Koreans had participated in the more than 1,500 demonstrations. Were there no suppressors? No. 7,509 people killed, 15,849 wounded, and 46,303 arrested by the Japanese police force and army. As punishment, some of the arrested demonstrators were executed in public.

100th Anniversary of the March 1st Movement in Gwangju, Korea

On Friday, all people of the Koreas commemorate the 100th anniversary of the March 1st Movement. President Moon Jae-in visited the graves of several key figures in the fight for Korean independence, and the government decided this week to honor freedom fighter Yu Gwan-sun with the country’s highest medal of honor, the Republic of Korea Medal.

Yu was only 16 when she attended the main March 1 gathering in Seoul, and she was arrested and died in prison at the age of 17. If you want to know more info here

The theme of the anniversary ceremony is “Let’s Open Another 100 Years Together,” a clear reference to South Korean Moon’s work to engage with the North. What does it mean? President Moon said “We are no longer in the periphery of history. I hope we will open a new era with pride and confidence that the strength to decide and open the next 100 years rests in us.”

How did the Trump-Kim summit go in Hanoi, Vietnam? On February 28, Trump and Kim left Hanoi abruptly without signing any sort of agreement. People are in shock. What happened? Many expected that one of the most likely things to come out of Hanoi would be an agreement to end the Korean War, which has been on pause for more than 60 years. It led many experts and lawmakers to heave sighs of relief, even as the summit’s abrupt finale raises questions about What’s Next?

But Moon Jae-in didn’t stop to hope. Because he love peace. He want to end the Korean War. Countless people do not want war, they want PEACE. If he truly love the people, he will strive for peace. He said “On April 27, both Chairman Kim Jong Un and I discussed joint projects to mark the 100th anniversary of the March First Independence Movement and to mark the founding of the provisional government, and our initiative was contained in the Panmunjeom Declaration.”

“If the South and North can share together the history of Korean independence, both will become much closer in their hearts,” he added.

The next posting will cover the stories of people who work for them and work for peace.

HWPL Cambodia Peacebuilding

Why Cambodia?

A STEP TOWARDS PEACE HWPL Cambodia Peacebuilding Peace education Peace Man Hee Lee Killing Fields Khmer Empire HWPL Cambodia Peacebuilding HWPL Cambodia DPCW chairman Lee Cambodian Genocide

Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia, bordering Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. Cambodia is famous for the Angkor Wat temple, that have built for Hindu religion during Khmer Empire. (officially the Angkor Empire) Now, the temple is part of Angkor World Heritage Site and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the world. At its peak, the Khmer empire (802-1431) covered much of what today is Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and southern Vietnam.

However, there was a great tragedy in this flourishing culture. The Cambodian Killing Fields (Khmer: វាលពិឃាត) are a number of sites in Cambodia where collectively more than a million people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge regime, during its rule of the country from 1975 to 1979, immediately after the end of the Cambodian Civil War.

The killing fields document death. From 1975 to 1979, Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge soldiers killed 1.7 million Cambodians, or 21 percent of the population, according to Yale University’s Cambodia Genocide Program. Maybe, it is the reason why the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) signed a MoU with HWPL to introduce Peace education nationwide and develop relevant policies and programs.

How did Cambodian Genocide end?

The Fall of the Republic of Democratic Kampuchea. On December 25, 1978, Vietnam launched a full-scale invasion of Cambodia and on January 7, 1979, Phnom Penh fell and Pol Pot was deposed.

What was the purpose of the Cambodian Genocide?

Ideology. Ideology played an important role in the genocide. Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge aimed to bring Cambodia back to its “mythic past” of the Powerful Khmer Empire, to stop corrupting influences like foreign aid and western culture, and to restore the country to an agrarian society.

Ideology can be solved through education. It is the reason why Cambodia wants to cooperate with HWPL.

Phnom Penh – The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport together with International Peace Organization and the inauguration of the HWPL Peace Building Department on February 14, 2019 RUPP. H.E. Hang Chuon Naron, Minister of Education, Youth and Sport, said “Peace education of HWPL was also considered and included in the curriculum of schools in Cambodia.”

As a result, 164 schools in 12 countries have signed MOUs with HWPL.

H.E. Rachana Khun, Under Secretary of State of Ministry of Education of Youth and Sport of the Kingdom of Cambodia addressed, “After signing MOA with HWPL today, the Ministry will expand its implementation of peace education in educational institutions nationwide more broadly. Particularly, the Ministry would like to request HWPL’s assistance in the writing of books on peace education, its teaching methodology, the training of peace educators, and activities to spread a culture of peace in education sector in Cambodia. There was also a presentation of successful cases from teachers and education experts who were first in recognizing the excellence of HWPL’s peace education and have been at the forefront in implementing peace education for children and the youth.”

Particularly, Mr.Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL, a peace activist, came to Cambodia to seek peace with the bishops of the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Justice and the state-run broadcasting station, and called on all people to become peace messengers for world peace.

HWPL is currently moving forward with a worldwide influence to bring DPCW, a new international law, to the United Nations. DPCW is a definte answer to peace that can end the war. Created by 21 international law experts, it is recognized not only sophisticated, but also it is aligned with UN Charter and SDGs.

The news of peace will continue to be heard. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to the 30th world peace tour. Because the 29th world peace tour has achieved tremendous results. You can see other postings.

The US-North Korea talks is expected to provide an important turning point for economic and security on the Korean peninsula.

So, peace-loving 1,000 Korean youths gathered for the unification of the two Koreas. The event is held under the theme of “Youth pictures the peaceful future for the Korean peninsula”. In search of the role of civil society to create a unified Korea with peaceful means, “North And South, Let’s Be “Us” Again” was held with 1,000 participants at the Grand Hilton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea on February 9th.

At a congratulatory speech, Prof. Chang Ho-Kwon, invited professor at Hanshin University, said, “By showing public support for unification of Korea through collaborative efforts of civil society and subsequent government capabilities, the gate of unification will be closer. There is no chance for a nation without history and culture. We take the lead in unification issues to leave a legacy for future generations, which can be attained by participation in IPYG peace projects.”

Why do 1.6 billion young people support the IPYG?

The host organization, International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), is a member organization of HWPL, an international peace NGO under the UN ECOSOC. IPYG initiated its peace activities with the aim of realizing world peace by the voice of youth themselves, the victims of the war, and has been carrying out various peace campaign around the world in cooperation with 851 youth organizations in 111 countries.

Regarding this youth campaign, IPYG explains that the youth of the Korean peninsula will voice to solve the problem of division and unification because the war threats on the Korean peninsula, which has been continuing since the division, can no longer be overlooked.

In particular, the young man is the most persuasive messenger of peace. Because the people who go to war are politicians? Who is it? That’s because they’re themselves. Who in the world will pay for that life? Do you think money can pay for it? Nope. Is the War far from us? You’ll understand by looking at the posting below.

How can IPYG exert global influence?

Because there is Mr.Man hee Lee, messenger of peace, who is supported by 1.6 billion Youth and 3.6 billion Women. His biography has impressed many people all over the world, and former and incumbent presidents, chief justice and journalists are working with him for peace. (evidence)

Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL delivered the message encouraging the youth’s willingness on a long-awaited reunion by saying “The desire for unification is the same voice of peace. There should have no more wars in our globe. Rather than pointing each other with guns, youth should be the front to lead the way to peace.”

The Capital of Philippines is Manila. POPULATION is 104,918,090 (US news) The Republic of the Philippines claimed independence from Japan after World War II in 1946 with assistance from the United States. With more than 100 million people, the Philippines is the 13th-most populous nation in the world. Thousands of islands and land of beautiful beaches are famous place in the Philippines.

Other Statistics: https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/philippines#country-ranking-details

But political instability is high. Statistically, the percentage of Filipinos that couldn’t meet the basic food needs stood at 7.5%. The number of poor families remained steady at 1.61 Million. As of 2016, there were a total of 101.57 million Filipinos. 25.2% of the population lived below the national poverty line.

The Philippines is among the lowest-ranked countries in terms of peace. According to the Institute of Economics and Peace’s Global Peace Index (GPI), the Philippines is ranked 138th out of 163 countries, with a score of 2.512. The Philippines, China, Thailand, Myanmar and North Korea are among the least peaceful countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

“The Philippines suffered particularly badly as President Duterte continued his assault on alleged drug dealers and from the five-month battle between government forces and Islamic militants who took over the city of Marawi, resulting in almost 1,200 militants, government forces and civilians killed,” the report said.

HWPL Philippine Peacebuilding Story

In this difficult situation, it is unusual for 30,000 people to get together for peace. This is possible because of Commission on Higher Education(CHED) of the Philippine government‘s many efforts. On January 23, 2018, The CHED signed a MOA on peace education with an international peace organization, HWPL affiliated with the UN ECOSOC. The CHED is planning to integrate peace education in the curriculum of state universities and colleges (SUCs). As a result, 164 schools in 12 countries have signed MOUs with HWPL.

Commissioner Ronald L. Adamat of the CHED, who proposed MOA to HWPL, expressed hope for HWPL peace education by saying “Children easily imitate war through toys like war weapons, but they don’t know how to play and imitate peace. Promoting peace education through the CHED will affect many Philippine educational institutions and play a crucial role in promoting peace in the Philippines.”

Also, Philippine Mindanao Peacebuilding Story is an unforgettable historical event in 2014. It also marks the 14th of March as the ‘HWPL Day’. On January 24, 2016, the second HWPL peace monument was established at the heart of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) base camp. From this point of view, HWPL’s contributions to Peacebuilding in the Philippines are enormous.

Back to a grand peace festival on February 8th. With the Philippines’ referendum, this event will be expected to serve as a stepping stone for solving the remaining challenges.

“The highlight of this peace event is to give inspiration of citizen participation in peacebuilding. Cultural performances will represent harmony under peace beyond differences in ethnicity, religion or nationality. Also, the principles of HWPL Philippine Peacebuilding with civic participation and national support will be introduced – the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW),” said Mr. Ian Seo, General Director, Department of Public Relations, HWPL.

One student of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines participating in a peace lecture, said “It was very impressive that we, students, could also be a part of the peace movement. Chairman Lee has already shown that many students around the world are working for peace. I want to take part in the peace activities of HWPL.”

I’m really looking forward to the 30th world peace tour. I am even more excited when I consider the great achievements of the 29th world peace tour of HWPL. Everything is up to you! Please become the messengers of peace.
