- Women from 36 countries participated in an online event on the 25th to support the DPCW
- Chairwoman Hyun Sook Yoon, “Promoting the construction of the ‘IWPG Peace Activity Monument’… We will create a world that commemorates peace, not war.”
The International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG, Chairwoman Hyun Sook Yoon) participated in the “9th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace by HWPL” held online in Korea on May 25 and held an international conference on ‘Institutionalization of Peace: Realization of a Common Will for Peace’. She called for solidarity and support from society.
Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) proclaimed the “Declaration of World Peace” on May 25, 2013. This declaration was the foundation for the “Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)” which was declared on March 14, 2016.
In her commemorative address, Chairwoman Yoon said, “Humanity has been longing for a spring of freedom and peace, but civil wars and conflicts continue. This Russian invasion of Ukraine has exposed the ineffectiveness of current international law.”
Then, Chairwoman Yoon emphasized, “The 10 articles and 38 clauses of the DPCW, which was created together with experts in international law, is an innovative and clear answer to peace that legally institutionalizes it so that it can maintain a sustainable world of peace and fundamental prevent war.”
“At the UN CSW event last March, about 1,700 women activists from around the world, including UN ambassadors, ministers of women from each country, representatives and secretary-generals of women’s committees, and lawyers from each country participated and expressed their intention to cooperate with IWPG.”
In addition, Chairwoman Yoon said, “In order to spread the call for the DPCW to be established as an international law, starting this year, ‘IWPG Peace Activity Monuments’ will be built in each region, and in order to spread a lasting culture of peace in the future, we will create a world that celebrates peace, not war, together with HWPL.”
Meanwhile, women from diverse backgrounds across 36 countries participated in the ceremony to support the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW).
