International Peace Organization’s Call to Action on Human Rights Crisis in Myanmar
SEOUL, Korea – Recent events in Myanmar have raised concern around the world. As the international community has learned about the atrocities being committed against citizens, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) released a statement to remind all parties involved in Myanmar, the United Nations, and the global community of the social responsibility to protect human rights and promote peace.
In 2016, HWPL started a global campaign for peace legislation to make sure disputes like Myanmar can be handled through dialogue and peaceful conflict resolution. HWPL and over 1.3 million citizens in 176 countries, have joined hands for peace and gathered over 738,000 signatures of support for peaceful resolution of conflicts through legislation.
HPWL highlights that the recent efforts of the Myanmar military to suppress nonviolent protests have led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries. It regrets that the numbers of deaths and injuries are still increasing.
“Human life must not be disregarded in any circumstances. No conflict of interest can justify violence against civilians, and no interest of any group can prevail over human life”.
The international peace organization opposes all types of violence around the world, calling out the Myanmar military regime, to ‘respect people’s human rights and freedom of expression’.
HWPL also urges United Nations “to take active measures so that the human rights and safety of the people of Myanmar may be protected”.
The statement left no bystanders as it also calls out “the global family of peace to issue statements urging authorities and civilians in Myanmar to pursue dialogue and seek a peaceful solution in order to restore peace to the country”.
“In one voice, HWPL and all our members around the world express hope that the ongoing crisis in Myanmar will be resolved peacefully through dialogue, not violence, and we call on the international community to join us,” said Man Hee Lee, the founding Chairman of HWPL. (PRESS RELEASE)
