On 11st of July, more than 25 Caribbean ambassadors and heads of states, including former Prime Minister of Belize the Honorable Mr. Said Musa, gathered in Washington D.C. Why did they gather? These incredibly famous people don’t move for no reason. They want to support the implementation of international peace legislation, the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). Where? “Within their each countries.”
DPCW has global support, especially for young people and women. There were well over a million supporters and the DPCW has already been enacted as a National Declaration in several countries around the world, including Antigua and Barbuda.
Mr. Said Musa, Prime Minister of Belize, said “I want to pledge my support for adoption of the DPCW which I find to be the most comprehensive legal framework that will serve to spread a zone of peace within the Caribbean region and across the world.” Caribbean Peace Movement is growing so rapidly.
Among the event, delegates committed to advance the passing of the DPCW through theCARICOM and the Coalition of Caribbean Leaders for Peace (CCLP). The CARICOM is an organisation of fifteen Caribbean nations and dependencies having primary objectives to promote economic integration and cooperation among its members. It is home to approximately sixteen million citizens, 60% of whom are under the age of 30. Caribbean countries have tremendous potential.
Their Headquarter is on Georgetown, Guyana. Guyana’s CARICOM Youth Ambassador and Regional Director for the United Nations Caribbean Global Peace Initiative, Ms. Samantha Sheoprashad, also gave remarks. According to a report from the Borgen Project, roughly 43 percent of Guyana’s population lives below the poverty line, the youth unemployment rate is over 30 percent but the current estimates are closer to 40 percent.
Mr. Musa, a founding member of the CCLP, urged other Caribbean leaders to participate and serve as a “beacon to guide the important work of the [CCLP] to spread the message of peace not only in our region but globally as well.” After all, they know it’s the DPCW that can solve all of this. This is the answer to peace. It is currently being presented to pass as law through the United Nations. Let’s have one voice! We Are One!
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.”
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.
“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!
The Intercontinental Online WARP Office meeting is a special platform. Experts from each religion will participate as a panel. They ask each other questions and talk to each other about the same topic.
The reason why this meeting is more special is because it is broadcast live all over the world in real time. And listeners from all over the world can participate directly online. Do you want to know what we’ve been talking about so far? 🙂
History of TOPIC
“What Religious Texts Tell You” 1. How to Get Rid of Evil 2. The Beginning and Origin of All Things 3. About God 4. AfterLife 5. About Creation 6. About the Beginning of Man
Isn’t that what you’ve been curious about? Don’t you happen to think about that? Wouldn’t there be no answer to that kind of debate? They’re just saying what you think and ending it, aren’t they? You’re right and I’m right, and that’s how it ends?
Of course, I thought so too.Of course, I thought so too. But HWPL WARP Offcie was different. They talk with exact criteria. What do you think it is? The secret is a “Scripture.”
Religion without a scripture is recognized as a culture, and everything is spoken around a scripture. Then it becomes much easier to talk. Because when comparing the scriptures of each religion, the answer comes out. Is there content in the scriptures for each subject? If so, what does it mean? If you do this, you can’t have an argument and you can agree with each other.
So far, wars caused by religion and ideology have accounted for 80 percent of human history. Think about it in your head right now. Isn’t there too much? But you can’t fight by speaking on the basis of scriptures. How wise! It’s so amazing.
<Session 1> Question List
Is your scripture recorded about the first person? What is his name and when did he come about?
What is written about the person’s appearance in your scripture? In some scriptures, it is written that man is made according to the shape of God.
Did a man come first or a woman first?
The first session will be held by a total of six people, including the host, headmaster, Muslim, Sikh, Zoroastrian and Christian leaders. I think the conversation is going to be so exciting, I’m going to watch it live. Let’s see! Also, you can see it again after the event is over.
126 foreign media outlets in 77 countries around the world have promoted 6th HWPL Peacewalk, including Australia, China, Germany, India, the Philippines, Russia, South Africa, the United States.
It urged leaders of the countries to enact a “peace international law (DPCW)” to end war. On March, HWPL delivered “Peace Letters” written by 1.3 million people around the world to the heads of states and UN ambassadors in 192 countries. So that the DPCW could be introduced as a U.N. resolution to effectively guarantee world peace.
Peace Letter Campaign was started by IWPG and IPYG. Women are determined not to sacrifice their children any more in the war, and young people have begun sending letters to their leaders expressing their desire for peace as well as their will to protect themselves from the war. Last year, 200,000 letters of peace were delivered to the presidents of seven countries, including Jae-in Moon.
Especially, I really hope to see this fourth video. I really feel that peace is going to be achieved. If our thoughts become one, and our actions become one, what can stop us? No one can stop our desire for peace. Who would want to die? Who would want to lose their family to war? They say they start a war to protect their country, but… Before that, if we have a good heart, we can prevent many young people from dying without having a chance to blossom.
Dear Heads of Countries, I urge you to show your active commitment to achieving peace by responding to the letter of peace that expresses the desire of mankind. If you love your country and people as a representative of a country, I ask you to work together to ensure that the DPCW is submitted to the UN and thus establish a framework for world peace and end of war.
The task of the time is to create a world of peace and pass it on to future generations. To do this, we can achieve true peace only when we identify the answers to achieve peace through the peace process that HWPL is making and practice it as a messenger of peace. Let’s all be an “One Voice” for peace and achieve DPCW together. And let’s work together and join in drawing support and cooperation from the international community.
Since it’s going to be followed by the first episode, I hope you read the first episode.
“And with this young man, many people are more involved in this because they have discovered that DPCW’s hopes can be realized. So what is the basis of that conviction?”
“There are three main points: The first is the perfect configuration of the DPCW, which consists of a full resolution of the dispute. Based on world documents on human rights and peace, such as the Charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, there are additional fundamental solutions to conflicts between religions and peoples, including ways to maintain a peaceful world through HWPL Peace Education and Spreading a Culture of Peace. So the DPCW has the perfect composition of conflict prevention, conflict mediation and securing sustainable peace.”
“The second is feasibility. DPCW is only three years old, but it is gaining tremendous support of citizens all over the world and support of the national level. It has received formal support from the Pan-African Parliament, a group of 55 African National Assembly speakers, a gathering of ministers and above-level officials from eight Pacific Islands, the Central American Parliament 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 the DPCW with signatures and peace letters campaign. On March 14, citizens from all over the world wrote 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 around the world reported it extensively, and the world cheered.”
“Finally, the power of the DPCW is the Chairman of HWPL, Man Hee Lee. Six years ago, when the new international law did not exist, he announced the “Declaration of World Peace” here. It included a his plan to create a new international law. Three years later, he announced the DPCW, the substance of the promise and he created the Peace Letter Campaign, which urges presidents around the world. The whole family in the world follows him, because he has a clear answer and leadership.
For example, no matter where he go on world peace tour, families of peace in neighboring countries gather to help and participate in Lee’s tour. When we see families of peace in each country running and putting everything aside to help Lee, we feel confident that he is a world leader who can change the world and lead people in one direction.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, this DPCW you’re seeing today is the hope of a global family and the power to change the world. To that end, this 6th 525 Peace Walk sent letters of peace to not only the president, but also the high-ranking leaders of the world at the same time. I’ve shown to the leaders how much citizens, who are masters of the country, want the DPCW because the President can’t move on only his own.
And today, in particular, we will take a peace walk with the wishes of each president to reply to the Peace Letter we sent around the world. The land where we take this step of peace will be transformed into a world of peace, and the sound of it will be a voice that changes the world.
Citizens around the world who are with us, HWPL, IPYG, will not stop our step until the President of each country hears and acknowledges the message, urging support for the DPCW.
Ladies and gentlemen, we will now serve the Chairman Man Hee Lee, the source of this power of peace. Check for yourself! The Chairman Lee declared it here, and made the work of peace. Come on, let’s run together.
Until our dreams come true. We are one! Thank you.”
IPYG Peace Letter Campaign Ads were put on the 27 newspapers of the United States, which send a letter to Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States. I can feel the hearts of American youth who truly desire a world without war and conflict!
International Peace Youth Group (IPYG) is one of two wings of HWPL, which affiliated with 805 organizations of 110 countries. The number of member is 4,600,000. Representative of IPYG said “The future owner is the youth. We should have the responsibility to lead the whole world. The first goal is to submit the DPCW to the UN General Assembly in the form of a draft resolution and have it adopted. Let us become all heroes of peace together”
So, IPYG Peace Letter Campaign is active in Washington D.C., South Africa, Indonesia, New Zealand, Namibia, Malaysia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, South Korea and others. In less than a year, 165,782 Peace Letters are sent to 193 incumbent presidents and Ambassadors to the U.N.
Also, Major media outlets like FOX, KTLA, NBC, ABC reported the youth’s movement for peace and a total of 599 online articles were released. Why are so many people interested? HWPL is famous for its great achievements in the shortest time. What have they achieved so far? Look for other posts.
I’ll show you a little taste. Why DPCW?
The international community has been regulating military actions through cooperation among countries in various forms, including treaties and agreements that restrict war, which is centering on the United Nations and other international organizations. But the limits are clear. Calls to regulate international disputes fairly through international law were continued, but international organizations and current international law lack binding force against all countries.
In a speech on the enactment of international law, the Chairman Man hee Lee of HWPL said, “How can you compensate for those who lost their lives? If what used to be is complete, there is no need to re-create. We need to create a new international law because the existing international law cannot end the war in this world, and NOW let’s create an ‘eternal international law’ so that we won’t have to fix it again. Instead of saying who is right and who is wrong, we have to actually work for this cause.”
An Open Letter to the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump
Dear Mr. President,
We are the youth of America
At such a crucial time within our nation’s history, we are urging your support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), a ground breaking peace law that many global leaders and heads of state are diligently working to have adopted by the UN General Assembly. It offers a legal framework for peaceful conflict resolution, the preservation of natural habitats, and the freedom of religion for all people. These causes align with American values and the hearts of American youth who truly desire a world without war and conflict. The DPCW protects what Americans deeply cherish, such as freedom and advancing peace around the world.
We believe that the work of peace is an inherent calling for every individual. As the acting President of the United States, your voice and support are a critical part of building a foundation of peace for future generations both here and abroad.
We sincerely hope that you will join our efforts by supporting the DPCW when it is introduced to the UN General Assembly. Many heads of state have already pledged their written support because they desire to end war and conflict. If we truly desire peace and love our country, how could we not support such a legislative solution to achieving peace together?
We request your reply and thank you for your service to our nation, Mr. President.

On February 18th, 2019, HWPL held a conference called‘Religious World Without Discrimination, Religious Leaders Becoming one’in Sydney, Australia. Along with about 370 audience members, 30 religious leaders representing 7 different denominations, including Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Sikhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism and Caodaism, are gathered to discuss the Role of Religion.
Regarding the role of religious leaders in establishing a world of peace, Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL said, “I came to Australia to tell that the 10 articles and 38 clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) are necessary to make a world of peace and leave a legacy of peace for future generations. This is more important than anything else, and we have to all become peace messengers.”
During the conference, the theme of ‘religious discrimination’ was also discussed. 4 keynote speakers delivered messages regarding unfortunate cases of religious discrimination and the need for concrete action plans.
Especially, one pastor read a letter that will be sent to the United Nations Human Rights Council, “I am a Pastor working in Australia and Pakistan. Pakistan is a dominantly Muslim country where religious tension and discrimination exists. I understand how we must all work to bring about true harmony between people of different faiths and cultures. The acts of the Christian Council of Korea (CCK) in relation to Ms. Gu Ji-In who was killed in the aftermath of coercive conversion in Korea should never be ignored and what they do should be stopped.”
30 religious leaders signed the Statement Denouncing Coercive Conversion Programs and Religious Discrimination and proclaimed their support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
