Middle East News Agency : Special International Service (2013 up till now)

I am a journalist working for Middle East News Agency for more than ten years and have been working for other news agencies too before. I was asked to attend an event entitled 'HWPL Proclamation Ceremony of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War' on behalf of my chief editor.

  Frankly speaking, I was really impressed and I was more impressed when I arrived to South Korea to see with my own eyes a huge team of youth from different cultures and backgrounds, working deliberately so hard with the passion for love and peace. They were so confident that they will achieve their goal one day and I figured out how decisive and special they were after I knew that HWPL built an academy for peace studies. I believe that their positive energy and atmosphere that they surrounded themselves with was somehow transferred to me as I was covering that event. This is why I didn`t hesitate when HWPL offered me to work as a publicity ambassador.
  Furthermore, I believe that HWPL`s peace initiatives mean making a world where we have an everlasting and prevailing peace for all mankind, a world with no wars or hatred and respect for the sacred meaning of a life which would be achieved through a binding law for all nations. This is what differentiates HWPL from any other peace organization.
   Moreover I find HWPL`s initiatives and events successful to a big extent as I can see HWPL is getting more widely known and extended, especially in an area full of wars and lives are taken such as middle east. That was obvious through the huge number of people who signed your peace campaign.

I expect HWPL holding more gatherings and events and it would be great if HWPL were able to reach people in charge or decision makers who can support. I believe that would encourage more people to engage in the peace campaign as well as working through that peace academy and revive the hope for achieving peace, which some can see it as a far reaching dream.

Please send my regards to Chairman Man Hee lee and to every people working within its team. I am looking forward to cooperate with HWPL again. Thank you.

1. What is your impression about HWPL's peace initiatives and events?

The strongest impression I have of HWPL is how the youths are working with great amount of passion, love and dedication for this peaceful purpose. It is not a small thing to voluntarily give up your time, energy and money for a cause with no materialistic gains. In a world where time is money, giving up both time and money to unite for peace is not a thing that can be found in many other places or organizations.

2. What do you expect from HWPL?

My expectations from HWPL are that HWPL should always continue to work towards its goal with the same passion, ambition, humbleness and unity as HWPL is doing today. Many organizations are made in the world where they work with great passion towards a cause in the beginning, including one and all in their mission. But as they gain power and numbers, one certain group starts to rise to the top and starts favoring a certain race, ideology or religion. This should not be the case with HWPL. We should always be united as one, crossing all limits of race and religion just like today.
Unity is the only way forward and this is the reason I have joined the HWPL family.

I support HWPL's peace activities because for me the name "HWPL" stands for credibility. I have immense faith and hope from the activities which HWPL undertakes under the able chairmanship of Mr. Man Hee Lee.

My short interaction with Mr. Lee in Korea gave me a sense of duty to work for peace. A thought came across my mind that if Mr. Lee can devote his entire life for the cause of world peace, I should also try to give much of time in order to achieve the dream of world peace as so envisioned by Mr. Lee.

Besides, I think HWPL is an organization which has a planned road map to achieve world peace.

Seminars pertaining to WARP are the most important achievement of HWPL because if harmony among various religions is achieved, it will certainly contribute to eradicating war and thereby achievement of world peace. 

If given a chance I would also like to give a speech at the WARP summit so that i can highlight various achievements of HWPL and thereby i can sincerely praise the efforts of Mr. Lee for achieving world peace.

For me Mr. Lee is a peace angel and a living legend of peace !!

I will continue to repose my faith in HWPL on account of the sincere hardwork undertaken by each and every member&volunteer of HWPL. Those efforts are indeed praiseworthy and deserves to be applauded :)

Also, HWPL is one organization which works selflessly day and night to give peace to the citizens of the world.

For me HWPL is close to my heart. I will continue sharing the achievements of HWPL to emminent citizens of the world so that the entire world acknowledges the efforts of HWPL and recognizes the efforts of Mr. Lee.

Why do you support HWPL's peace activities?

HWPL’s peace activities are definitely something that can unite the Balkan region in a good way and this is one of the main reasons why I am supporting them. The Balkan region has a history of violence and a lot of conflicts in recent years so HWPL initiative for peace comes at the right moment and it will be successful and will achieve the ultimate goal, world peace.

Do you think there is something special about HWPL?

From what I have seen from HWPL, notably the event that took place in Seoul on the 14th of March regarding the proclamation of the Declaration for Peace and Cessation of War, I was impressed by the high level of the organization's actions. Judging from my experience that I have visited a lot of events in USA and Europe, HWPL organizational skills were by far the best I have ever witnessed! Also I noticed that HWPL’s volunteers were all highly devoted to the cause of world peace and I regard this very highly and it’s definitely a reason for the success of the organization.

What do you expect from the peace movement by HWPL?

I expect that HWPL’s peace movement to spread even more on a global scale, which will of course work towards the achievement of world peace and cessation of wars and conflicts around the world.

What do you suggest to HWPL for improvement?

At this moment I cannot think of anything to suggest for improving because the organization is functioning perfectly and in my opinion is already doing a great job at promoting world peace!

Messages to HWPL families - words, pictures, or videos

Becoming a HWPL publicity ambassador is definitely a great honor and represents a highly important role which I now share with the rest of HWPL members – let's be the messenger of peace and spread good values for the humanity!

Why do you support HWPL's peace activities?

Why do I support HWPL? HWPL, I DECLARE, IS A NOBLE ENDEAVOR! People in the whole wide world are looking for something different that will bring a moral end. HWPL is a hope for the world of unrest, war and hopelessness, that will offer the best and ultimately through its strength will accentuate the positives that will understand and learn people in any walk of life with the end goal to happily reconcile harmoniously with life through peace in this generation and the generation to come! HWPL will ultimately carve and shape a brighter future through its systematic processes for peace. I believe with all my heart that the vision and mission of HWPL are the solutions for making this world a better place.

Look how HWPL and global citizens work together for peace.

[FAQs of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War] - What is the role and significance of the declaration?

Re-thinking our global family, village and collective effort for peace
There are many threats in the global community affecting our daily lives - economy, environment, political unrest, etc. Among them, the biggest threat to our lives is war, So far, there is no mechanism to ever stop conflicts that lead to devastating consequences.
Our world we live now is unprecedented, for we live a life by communicating, working, and depending on each other globally. But at the same time wars and conflicts occur globally. That is why world peace is possible only when people in the global community help each other and support world peace movement in one collective voice.
Through the declaration proclaimed by HWPL on March 14, 2016, the initiative on cessation of war and world peace will be provided. For world peace applicable to every one in our globe, not only law experts but civilians throughout the world regardless of areas of profession join in the movement. As the pillars of world peace, the Peace Advocacy Committee will be established with women and youth around the world to make a collective voice for the implementation of the international law for world peace based on this declaration.

[FAQs of the Ceremony on the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War - What are the main points of the declaration?] 

1) Conversion of weapon manufacturing facilities into beneficial use for humanity
Arms races in the current world is to a large degree is its foundation in manufacturing weapons. If it can be converted into beneficial use of humanity, it will be “beneficial races”. (No single Volkswagen vehicle was given to civilians during the time of WWII. After the war disappeared, military vehicles produced in facilities by Volkswagen transformed into popular use supporting daily lives of people.)

2) Establishment of Global Peace Policy
The declaration will be a legal foundation that encourages states and international organizations to elicit necessary policies to achieve world peace. (Starting from NGO movement - The International Campaign to Ban Landmines, the Ottawa Treaty has been ratified by 40 states to ban the use, production and transfer of landmines against person.)

3) Religious Conflict Resolution
According to the declaration, religious organizations and leaders are obliged to take responsibility for religion-related conflicts to ultimately prohibit wars caused by religious misunderstandings. In this way, religions restore their role - the spirit of harmony, peace and love, prerequisite for world peace. (Interfaith dialogues and the peace agreement in the Philippines showed possibility of the crucial role of religions to establish peace.)

What We can See on March 14, South Korea

What We can See on March 14, South Korea 

- Enhancement of Human Security through the Declaration on Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace

 The term ‘human security’ appeared in 1994 from the United National Development Plan (UNDP) with the concept. This idea was first introduced when the origin of war and conflict began to be analyzed with multi-dimensional approaches based on the focus on individuals and groups as new actors of the global community rather than state alone. It demonstrates that world peace can become a reality when the qualities such as disarmament, human rights, protection of environment, social stability and democracy should be endorsed in every part of our global society. From this perspective, the factors of human security embrace a wide arrange of issues including conventional military security, economic development, social welfare, justice, democratization, arms reduction and political freedom. The Convention on the Prohibition of The Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel mine is a typical example of the achievement through the idea of human security.

 In fact, to some extent, the advent of human security is caused by crisis consciousness. People in the world without exception are not safe from disease, famine, crime, war, nuclear issue and environmental disaster, and what is worse those are becoming even more serious and threatening every life of human being. This international crisis necessitates problem-solving through international solidarity with collective efforts.

 World peace is possible when the security in every factor directly affecting our daily lives as mentioned above must be guaranteed at an individual level. HWPL also agrees that individuals, (global citizens) are the main actors who can make a change in this world - the world with peace.

 On March 14, 2016, there is an international event reflecting today’s phenomenon in how these concerns and efforts of the international community for peaceful world are represented. It is the Proclamation Ceremony on the Declaration of Cessation of War and World Peace, held by Heavenly Culture World Peace Restoration of Light (HWPL).

 This declaration shows a practical approach to conflict resolution for peace through the concept of “Cessation of War”. It suggests that the environmental and economic influences can never be disregarded but the essential issue of human security depends on war, which can be waged and stopped by people at the same time. Also, the influence of war to the people can be greater than that of other factors since the aftermath is instantaneous.
Therefore, it can be said that the declaration revealed by HWPL in this year shows enhancement in the initiatives of the UN and global community on ‘how war can be prevented and peace can be attained’.
The initiative on “how war can be avoided” raised by HWPL through international law provides details on the concept of human security. In the declaration, to cease practices of war, there are five main articles included –

 One of the most interesting, audacious elements of the declaration will be “Religious Conflict Resolution.” Many forms of global conventions, international agreements or treaties designate comprehensive approaches to peace with factors affecting the stability of the globe, but the concept of religion has not been addressed in detail.
The appropriateness of dealing with religion in the declaration, whose goal is to gain support and impetus for the establishment of the international law for world peace, is its foundation in the fact that religion has provided the roots of destructive war and conflict. In truth, it is an irony that such conflicts are caused by religions of today’s world whose principles and faiths are based on harmony, coexistence and peace.

 In this regard, the declaration offered by HWPL asks us to think about religion again. It says that conflicts caused by religion can also be resolved by religion itself. To put it another way, this means that problems of today’s religions can contribute to conflict resolution and world peace. As a matter of fact, HWPL has an empirical case of conflict resolution in Mindanao, the Philippines; religious harmony (interfaith dialogues) led to a peace agreement by the two main religions in the region - Catholic and Muslim. This experience will provide a practical approach to peace for the achievement of peace, which appears on the day when HWPL proclaims the declaration on March 14.

SOS in Syria

200 women and children in a local city, Syria, gathered together and made “SOS” to ask for support of the international society.

Is the provision of food and water enough for their lives?

This is the reason why we need the International Law of Peace.
