HWPL Peace Discussion in London amidst Impending Global Conflict 


HWPL Peace Discussion in London amidst Impending Global Conflict,  to discuss the 2nd draft of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts 


London, UK – While the world was sending its grievances and expressing fury at the indiscriminate armed violence perpetuated by terrorists on Friday, 13 November in Paris, the HWPL International Law Peace Committee members and renowned international law scholars met with HWPL Chairman and Peace Activist, Mr. Man Hee Lee, to discuss the 2nd draft of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts. Discussions were held over the course of three intensive meetings on November 12th through 14th in London, and included a post-action plan for the finalization of the draft Convention and its implementation.


The International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts is HWPL’s core initiative, which was first presented at the 1st Annual Commemoration of the World Alliance of Religions Peace (WARP) Summit in September this year. It aims to prevent any non-peaceful activities throughout the world.


Chairman ManHeeLee declared at the International Law Committee meeting that “without the implementation of an International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts, world peace would remain a remote goal. Because law itself acts as watchman, no one can easily perpetuate violence and cause conflicts once the International Convention is set in stone. Today at this very important gathering, the HWPL International Law Peace Committee members will present the 2nd draft of the Convention, which can then be divided into each provision which will be finalized by making necessary revisions. Once implemented, this Convention will be engraved in the hearts of many people to have a peaceful life.”


Dr. Kamal Hossain, the Vice Chair of the International Law Association, played an integral role in drafting the constitution of Bangladesh and is active in the arena of peace activism. During the committee meeting Dr. Hossain said, “The International Convention on the Cessation of War is imperative for various reasons because this initiative was developed from the marginalized voices, the voices of women and youth. War does not benefit anyone rather it takes everything away. This innovative Convention will strengthen our global society and international law framework by supplementing the gaps.”


One of the members of the HWPL International Law Peace Committee said, “There are other institutions that are dealing with the same subjects. What we have is the strong network which can be provided by HWPL. We can propose a Declaration and with it, HWPL, as an organization representing a number of legal minds, can approach the heads of state, calling on them to help this initiative….Chairman Lee is someone with lots of wisdom and has access to a large number of young people. At the end of the day, the change can only come from states, and as such, they must be pushed…This provides room for innovation and initiative.”  


Upon its presentation, it is expected that the revised Convention will serve as a unique and effective tool in preventing any further non-peaceful activities like terrorist attacks and civil wars. It will ensure lasting peace.


Prior to their trip to London, Chairman ManHeeLee and the HWPL Peace Delegation visited Los Angeles and El Salvador to meet with international heads of state, religious leaders, media, and youth to speak about the urgency of a united commitment for HWPL’s peace initiatives. Educators and community leaders in LA expressed their commitment to work with HWPL to incorporate HWPL’s peace-building campaigns into their classroom. The City Council of Santa Tecla, El Salvador and the citizens volunteered to build the Peace Monument and collaborated with HWPL to take a new leap toward bringing peace in their communities.

Women and youth 
play an integral role 
in achieving peace

Chairman ManHeeLee and the HWPL Peace Delegation met with HWPL International Law Peace Committee members and renowned international law
 scholars to discuss the 2nd draft of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts, the core initiative of HWPL



On 13 November 2015, the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) hosted the ‘IWPG Peace Forum’ to urge the implementation of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace at Clothworkers’ Hall in London. The Forum mainly discussed the role of women in the implementation of the International Convention and was attended by numerous women leaders.

“Only when we become one in heart and gather our efforts to urge for peace, we can do so much more than we do separately (…) When we raise active awareness on how crucial the implementation of the Convention on the Cessation of Wars is, this initiative will be unstoppable by any forms of authority or wealth. Let us all become messengers of peace and speak up for the implementation of the Convention in one voice.” said, Chairwoman of the IWPG, underlining the integral role youth and women play in achieving peace.

“If we wish to permanently end all wars and armed conflicts, youth and woman should act as watchmen of each state, overseeing the progress of the International Convention on the Cessation of War to ensure global peace.”

“Even before their precious lives fully blossom and receive proper education, should youth ever be forcibly taken away from their mothers and be trained and used as tools to satisfy the greed of others? We must compensate for the lives lost in the midst of all conflicts by providing access to education, especially regarding various peace initiatives to those who are still forced to carry out non-peaceful activities in the world.”

This year’s Oxford International MUN was the largest and most prestigious conference where key world issues were discussed and participants could listen to illustrious guest speakers from across the globe.

Prior to the IWPG Peace Forum and the Model United Nations, Chairman ManHeeLee and the HWPL Peace Delegation met with HWPL International Law Peace Committee members and renowned international law scholars to discuss the 2nd draft of the International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts, the core initiative of HWPL.


HWPL, one of the biggest international non-governmental organizations, has played a decisive role in ending numerous civil conflicts by Peace Agreements. The organization hosted the 1st Annual Commemoration of the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit in September 2015, which provided a platform to present the 1st draft of the Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts through its International Law Peace Committee.

The IWPG is an international women’s peace organization actively working with over 700,000 members from 179 branches in 40 countries worldwide. As an active supporting organization of HWPL’s peace movement, the IWPG is currently leading the way to support women’s peace activities worldwide, including various volunteer services, academic education, and cultural and artistic exchanges.

HWPL, WARP Office

 

Recently, Malaysia suffered from air pollution due to haze. However, even the haze cannot interrupt the people who gathered to achieve peace. Now, the clear wind of peace is blowing in Malaysia which has had potential conflicts among various religions and ethnic groups.

At the office of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Islamic Organisations (Mapim) on Nov 7, the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office (WARP Office) held its 5th meeting hosted by an international peace organisation, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL).

Religious leaders who represent each faiths such as Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, and newly Christianity attended this event and had a time of conversation about ‘the Good and Evil in each scriptures of religion’. The WARP Office is the place of harmony that enables religious leaders to gather and seek how they could contribute to world peace.

The event first began with watching the highlights video of 4th WARP Office. All the participants who had seen the video were pleased to join this actual movement in Malaysia constantly, being touched by the growing scale and results which HWPL has accomplished.

Under the topic, ‘the Good and Evil in each scriptures of religion’, religious leader’s speeches began. A Sikhism leader, Sardar Harcharan Singh, made people realise the importance of scriptures again by saying “Our scriptures give us guidance to make proper use of our own conscience. Therefore, following or ignoring the guidance brings us rewards or punishments based on the scripture.”

After the guest speakers’ speeches, there was a session where religious leaders and all attendants at this meeting sought similarities and differences in each faith through taking part in the ‘OX Quiz’ about ‘Good and Evil’. Especially, all speakers had an impassioned debate about the question – ‘Do you believe that there are Evil people couldn’t solve?’

Unlike in previous events, this 5th event was held in two parts. All participants could have the chance to hear speeches of the representatives of the Youth and Women. It was a meaningful event informing the fact that the youth who have to enter wars and the women who are the mothers of them have to strive to achieve ending war by themselves.

HWPL is a non-profit international peace organisation that is spreading peace movements most enthusiastically and systematically in the world. Being amazed by the great efforts of chairman Man Hee Lee, religious leaders all around the world are gathering gradually to harmonise together.

Santa Tecla, El Salvador – On November 10th 2015, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) caught the interest of those who seek peace by unveiling a Peace Monument and establishing a Peace Park in Santa Tecla, where the scars of civil war are yet to be healed.

The unveiling was followed by a Peace Rally and was attended by Mayor Roberto José d´Aubuisson Munguía, former Deputy Head of the Legislative Assembly of the state of La Libertad, along with over 1,000 citizens. The world-renowned peace activist, Mr. Man Hee Lee, Chairman of HWPL, and Chairwoman of the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) were invited to attend and graced the occasion with their presence.

This historic event in El Salvador is the fruit of the efforts of Chairman ManHee Lee, who has been traveling around the world, tirelessly calling for peace since the proclamation of the Declaration of World Peace two years ago. Mayor Munguía, and the citizens of Santa Tecla, volunteered to build the Peace Monument and collaborated with HWPL to take a new leap toward bringing peace in their communities. HWPL’s Peace Monuments are being erected in many parts of the world, including the United States, the Philippines, and South Africa, and are the symbols of the realization of sustainable world peace.

Prior to his trip to El Salvador, Chairman ManHeeLee visited Los Angeles and attended ‘Advancing the Light of Peace: HWPL Peace Event’. He met with international heads of state, religious leaders, media, and youth to speak about the urgency of a united, global commitment for HWPL’s two initiatives: an International Convention on the Cessation of War and International Armed Conflicts and the Alliance of Religions through its WARP (World Alliance of Religions’ Peace) Office meetings. Educators and community leaders in LA presented the importance of including religious dialogue into school curriculum, expressing their commitment to work with HWPL to incorporate HWPL’s peace-building initiatives into their classroom.

The 12-year civil war that took the lives of over 80,000 people, ended with the peace agreement between the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN) and governmental forces in San Salvador in 1992. However, human rights violations and increasing violent incidents continue to plague the region, making it known as the number one city in the world for homicides.

Moving forward from the pain and suffering of the past, El Salvador, meaning ‘Savior’, is taking this unprecedented event as an opportunity to be at the forefront of leading the WARP Office events and supporting the implementation of the Convention on the Cessation of War. The City Council of Santa Tecla have also designated September 18th as HWPL Day to annually commemorate the momentous 1st Annual Commemoration of the WARP Summit in Seoul, South Korea – which produced the finalized first draft of the International Convention by the HWPL International Law Peace Committee.

Chairman ManHeeLee and the HWPL Peace Delegation will travel to London, UK to hold further discussions on the 2nd draft of the International Convention with renowned international law scholars and experts.

From Sweden, Germany, England, the Netherlands, and 7 more European countries, the office has now been established for the 3rd times in Finland, and it has gained a lot of attention from the world. Recently there has been a great concern in the Finland that a growing number of people are leaving to join extremist organizations and fight in civil wars in places such as Syria and Iraq; it has become apparent that there is a great misunderstanding of the purpose of religion and misconceptions about the teachings within the scriptures.

We need to create an era of peace based on the new philosophy (teaching), which controls and rules over our society.” Mr. Man Hee Lee, the Chairman of HWPL created this World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Office project. On September 28th, at the ‘Global Leadership Conference’of the UN, he delivered the keynote speech saying, “If religious people are united under God and find the true path, peace will come on earth.

[HWPL News] The Importance of WARP Office


The Importance 
of WARP Office 



Religious leaders attend the WARP Offices for harmony


Sydney (Press Release from WARP); On November 14th, the 6th World Alliance of Religions Peace (WARP) Office was held at the Meadow Bank of Shepherd Bay in Sydney. The WARP Office is an international activity that
 discusses about interfaith harmony through the comparison of religious scriptures organized by HWPL, which hosted the major peace festival, the WARP Summit 2014.

WARP Offices were held 5 times each in Melbourne and Brisbane, and this time will be 6th WARP Office in Sydney. Many people are focusing more on this event which is growing in scale and meeting more actively.

Each religious leader including Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism had a discussion that takes a look at the fundamental problems of humanity on the topic of “The Causes of Birth, Aging, Sickness and Death according to the Holy Scriptures”.

Especially, Mr. Padam deep Singh emphasized the importance of WARP Office that “I’m so surprised that we are having a meeting with representatives of different religion who are sharing the teachings from their own scriptures. We can make the world more peaceful if all religious leaders make harmony through this specific platform of the WARP Office. ”

The audiences also sympathized as they had a time to find about the religious standards according to the Holy Scriptures rather than the thoughts that they had in regards to other religions, as they carefully heard speeches from the speakers and during the OX quiz sessions.

In addition, the event not only focused on finding the answer of peace, but also included time for the signing of peace agreement. Participants had a big smile as they pledged to become a peace messenger. The gathering of each peace agreement one by one became the foundation for peace.

The Reason Why We Need to Have WARP offices


The Reason Why 
We Need to Have 
WARP offices

Peace advocate, ManHee Lee, the chairman of 
Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of 
Light (HWPL) explained the reason why 
we need to have WARP offices

Add the scent of peace to Ottawa, the center of Canada

Religious leaders gathered in Ottawa and discussed religious conflicts based on each scripture

On Oct 24th, World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Office was held in Ridgemont High School Library, Ottawa, the capital city of Canada followed by the first WARP Office on Sep 5th. The WARP Office in Ottawa, the city of beautiful and peaceful scenery deepened the scent of spirit of peace in order to achieve world peace through unification of religions.

In the 2nd WARP Office of Ottawa, four prominent religious leaders attended and gave a speech. The leaders are Mr. Mohamed hasimi (Imam of Islam Care Centre), Dr. Jagmohan Humar(President of Jain Society of Ottawa Carleton), Fr. Pedro Arana(Parish Priest of Assumption Church), Saloeurm Savath(Buddhist Monk of Bodhikaram Temple) and Swarn Singh Lall(President of Sikh Community Service Ottawa). The topic of the 2nd was “Reason for Arising of Conflict from Religion.”

The topic of the previous meeting was “Peace based on Scriptures” and the main theme helped religious leaders realize their tasks and roles to achieve world peace. The 2nd WARP Office dealt with deeper issues compared to the first as the religious leaders actually made a platform for better understanding of each religious scripture in order to resolve conflicts caused by tensions among religions.

Swarn Singh Lall (President of Sikh Community Service Ottawa), one of the speakers, said “The conflicts may be intra-religious or inter-religious. Intra- religious conflicts: Different sects in the same religion are basically there because these sects do not comply with the principles of their parent religion. So the followers of these Sects have arguments and fights among themselves.”

 In fact, the meaning of religion indicates the highest teachings from God. Peace advocate, ManHee Lee, the chairman of Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) explained the reason why we need to have WARP offices. “Heaven gives us light, rain and air without cost. If religious people who receive such teachings and blessings firmly stick to their scriptures and cause conflicts in the world, they are going wrong way against true meaning of religion. Eighty percent of conflicts of the world are due to religion. If religions become united, there will be far less reasons to break war. The unification of religious texts is a way of unification of religions.”

 At the moment the WARP Offices have opened 103 offices in over 53 countries including Toronto, Canada, seven regions in USA, and Tijuana in Mexico in North America.

The WARP office has begun from the WARP Summit in 2014 where religious leaders gathered and singed on Peace Agreement to work together for unity and harmony. The result of 103 WARP Offices during such a short period of time for past one year startled the world. The chairwoman of International Women’s Peace Group, one of the two wings (IWPG and IPYG, International Women’s Peace Group and International Peace Youth Group) of HWPL, made a comment on its extraordinary outcome that. “The greatest result from the WARP Summit is to bring an end to war on earth and to achieve world peace in our generation and leave a legacy of peace to them. Then the future generations will no longer have to suffer from wars but fully enjoy peace. Many have come to a realization for the past year that the WARP Summit is an unprecedented event in history and an absolute solution to achieve world peace.’

 Along with the tireless efforts of peace advocate, ManHeeLee and The performance of WARP Offices serves as a bridge that brings religious leaders all around the world to the one place for peace.

With the strong support from Canadians who wish to work together for world peace, it is highly expected that the 3rd and 4th WARP Offices of Ottawa will be held in November and December in series on a regular basis.

Joyas, IBP National President, has expressed his support in assisting the enactment of an international law for peace and will further collaborate with Korean professors in the expertise of international law.

Chairman ManHeeLee gave a keynote speech on the topic of ‘Heavenly Culture, the essential ingredient in bringing world peace’ during the mass led by Archbishop Antonio Ledesma of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro. At the conference with politicians and religious leaders in Cagayan de Oro, Chairman Lee also delivered a speech on the topic of ‘the role of religious leaders in conflicted areas’, emphasizing the significance of the religious leaders’ parts in conflicts and disputes while Chairwoman Kim spoke about the role of youths and women in peace building. In her speech, she said, “There is no more powerful driving force than the spirit of youths and the hearts of mothers in establishing peace”, drawing an enthusiastic applause from the participants. Furthermore, the WARP Office Meeting was held under the topic of “Birth, Aging, Sickness, and Death in the context of religious scriptures” Currently, HWPL’s WARP Offices are dramatically arising in 62 cities in 40 countries around the world including but not limited to Philippines, United States, United Kingdom, and India, reminding religious leaders of their significant roles in the establishment of peace.

Back in January 2014, the signing of the alliance of religions agreement led by Chairman Lee and conducted between the Catholic and Muslim leaders has brought a cease-fire of a 40-year conflict in Mindanao. Governor Esmael Toto Mangudadatu sent a special invitation to Chairman Lee to celebrate the day of the signing of peace treaty as well as the 2nd Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace. Officially proclaiming January 24th as HWPL day of Maguindanao as a day of peace, the commemorative event particularly included the unveiling of the Mindanao Peace Agreement Monument. The International Peace Youth Walk Festival was followed after the ceremony and over 3,000 youths in Maguidanao marched together.

Generose Coyme, a youth participant of the rally shared how she was deeply moved, “Mindanao bears too much pains and sorrows. It is one of the most conflicted regions in the world. From seeing HWPL’s active involvement in Mindanao with their peace initiatives every year, I can feel that this purely civil organization looks after the whole world and loves the neighboring countries as their own.” The memorial demonstrated the unity and commitment of the people of Mindanao embracing people from different backgrounds and defining the right framework for the community to achieve sustainable peace.

Chairman ManHeeLee introduced the work of HWPL in his speech as follows, “We are undertaking the global initiatives to bring sustainable peace for all and to fulfill what is stated in the Declaration of World Peace.” He continued to urge the participants to join the peace movement by saying “Every global citizen, regardless of their social status, should work as messengers of peace, putting efforts to bring forth our common goal.” He highlighted the urgency of improving the current situations of many countries by continuing his statement, “No country should experience wars rooted in religious misunderstandings” Supreme Court Justice Sheikh Khalifa B. Nando of MILF who signed on the agreement of the enactment of an international law for peace has agreed that it is necessary to collaborate efforts of people to amend such legislation.

In the meantime, the mayor and members of the city council of the city of Alexandria, Virginia has acknowledged HWPL’s dedication in bringing people of different religions together for the establishment of peace and has recently proclaimed September 18th as the ‘World Alliance of Religions Day’ to commemorate the World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit, an unprecedented international peace festival held by HWPL on September 18th in Seoul, Republic of Korea.

In addition to the accomplishments above, the National Assembly of Ecuador has recently conferred an award of national recognition to acknowledge and cooperate with the works of HWPL for the commemoration of May 25th. In the preamble to the award, the government of Ecuador recognizes that HWPL has dedicated, since its foundation, the efforts and energy aimed at actively pursuing missions widely supported by many countries while solving current issues of the world for the purpose of restoring human dignity. While the government also recognizes the works of IWPG and IPYG, the award of national recognition highlighted hard work of Chairman Lee of HWPL in spreading the global peace movement. The National Assembly of Ecuador has expressed its sincere gratitude for Mr. ManHeeLee’s spirit of volunteerism and his dedication toward preserving and fostering culture of peace.

While May 25th is becoming a crucial day bringing the sensational wave of peace worldwide, Chairman Lee sent a letter from Philippines on 24th of May to the members of International Peace Youth Group (“IPYG”) and IWPG. In the letter, he delivered his message that “The youth’s work will be the force that will put an end to all wars on this earth and create peace that will be left as a legacy for the future generations. Let us not forget this day and hold commemorative ceremonies. Let us announce this to the world so that everyone may become a peace messenger and work with us in creating the light of glory.”

The growing support and cooperation of the international community for the observance of the World Alliance of Religions Day as well as HWPL Peace Day have demonstrated that the peace works of HWPL provide an effective way to cease conflicts and promote a peaceful world.

Youth For Peace Campaign



Youth 
For World Peace 
Campaign


The only way to stop the fighting and pointless, 
tragic deaths, is to stop fighting.


  • Youth for world peace campaign


Of what use is a young life, born in our day and age, if it is thrown away in this manner - thrown away without having had a chance to bloom?

What price can compensate for the loss of a life?
Do these young souls have another chance at life?

The only way to stop the fighting and pointless, tragic deaths, is to stop fighting.

Nobody can ask for anything greater than this, and know that your efforts (the efforts of the young people of the world today in pursuit of peace) will remain as a never fading light of life for all future generations!!
