SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – About a thousand public figures from 120 countries from all over the world are set to hold meetings for the implementation of the

Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) in Seoul, South Korea from Sept. 17-19 this month.

Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) Chairman Man Hee Lee is hosting a two-day “2nd Annual Commemoration of 18th World Alliance of Religions’ Peace (WARP) Summit” to collect more signatures for the DPCW that will eventually be presented to the United Nations.

The program has so far generated 535,493 signatures as of July 17, 2016 from 167 countries to support a new legal document drafted last March 14, 2016 that could serve as a foundation for a safe and peaceful world.

THEY ALSO WANT PEACE IN MINDANAO:

The occasion was also held for the signing of the “Mindanao Peace Agreement” between Catholic and Muslim representatives “to put an end to any further armed conflicts in the regions of Mindanao and beyond.” The HWPL is hosting a two-day “2nd Annual Commemoration of 18th World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Summit” in Seoul, South Korea on Sept. 17-19, 2016 to collect more signatures for the DPCW that will eventually be presented to the United Nations. (Photo from the website of HWPL, http://hwpl.kr/media/hwpl_news/view/88)


In a foreword to his book, Mr. Lee, a former Korean war veteran, said the call for DPCW is in “accordance with the common spirit that permeates all religious scriptures, and the rules of international law including fundamental rights guaranteed, to undertake to prosecute and sanction gross and systematic acts of violence undertaken in the name of religion to bring about gradual disarmament of weapons of mass destruction and weapons capable of causing widespread and unnecessary suffering and weapons incompatible with international humanitarian law.

“The signatories to the present Declaration do hereby urge that all efforts be made so that this Declaration is adopted and respected by all states.”

Mr. Lee, who had circled the globe several times since he founded the DPCW on May 25, 2013 during a peace walk attended by 30,000 youths from 130 countries in Seoul had also come up with ten articles of faith.

The articles said States should 1) prohibit the threat or use of force; 2) reduce war potential and repurpose weapons to benefit humanity; 3) develop friendly relations and prohibit acts of aggression; 4) prohibit coercion against internationally recognized state boundaries; 5) ensure the right to self-determination of peoples or states; 6) settle international disputes through peaceful means; 7) acknowledge the right to self-defense; 8) foster religious freedom; 9) promote peaceful coexistence amongst religious and ethnic groups; and 10) Spread a culture of peace.

THOUSANDS OF MINDANOAONS AFFIRM PEACE CALL: 

Some 15,000 soldiers and civilians in Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao affirm their pledge to support to put an end to the 40-year-old conflict in Mindanao as they witnessed the unveiling of the Monument to the Declaration of World Peace last Jan. 24, 2016 in Sultan Kudarat highlighted by the speeches of Chairman Man Hee Lee of the Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light and Chairman Al Haj Murad Ebrahim (second from left) of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). The HWPL is hosting a two-day “2nd Annual Commemoration of 18th World Alliance of Religions’ Peace Summit” to collect more signatures for the DPCW that will eventually be presented to the United Nations on Sept. 17-19, 2016 in Seoul, South Korea.

WARP PARADE:
