On March 14 at 8:00 pm (local time) in Korea during the HWPL 6th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW)' held online, Chairman Man-Hee Lee said: "DPCW is the answer from Heaven for cessation of war and to achieve peace. This declaration, which contains international norms to end war, addresses the causes of war and suppresses the outbreak of war, and at the same time, mentions follow-up measures to ensure that the world continues after the end of the war.”

Then he stated: “Our members and children are dying in Kyiv, Ukraine, where an IWPG branch is located. The greatest sacrifices in the war are women and youth and, with the current international law, war cannot stop war even if innocent people are killed.”

Chairperson Yoon continued saying, “I ask the heads of states of all countries around the world. We earnestly ask the United Nations to show swift action so that the ‘DPCW’ can be established as an international law so that sustainable peace can be realized.”

Meanwhile, 900 women from 41 countries, attended from IWPG. At this commemoration ceremony, HWPL announced that it plans to promote the institutionalization of peace as a basis for rooting and developing peace under the theme of ‘Institutionalizing Peace: Building a Legal Foundation for Sustainable Peace’.
