  2. 2. 2 3 Greetings! IWPG has been established to protect precious lives with maternal hearts and to leave a legacy of a peaceful world for the future generations. The noble heart of all mothers is the most powerful force that can protect all children and be the answer to peace. Despite of the longing for peace of all mankind and many sacrifices of peace activists who walked on tough lives, the world is still not peaceful and is still in darkness. IWPG has been working for peace through the global network with 3.6 billion women to bring the world peace to the battlefields and to the whole world. As the moon in the sky receives the light from the sun and shines on the world, IWPG will contribute to heal the wounds of the global village from war and terror, share the happiness and realize the world peace with the motherly heart of the women leaders and volunteers around the world. Just as mother’s womb is a place of miracle where the seed of life transforms into a new creation, if all women becomes as the womb for everyone, we can make a miracle of peace. Let us all become peace messengers in order to protect the children from war and leave a legacy of a peaceful world as a gift to the future generations. If we become one, we can surely do it. “Now is the time of realizing peace.” Let’stop the violence, conflicts and wars and open the peaceful era with 3.6 billion women a around the world. International Women’Peace Group It is our mission as mothers to protect our children from all wars and to end global conflicts. We aim to accomplish world peace so that we can pass it on as a legacy for our future generations. We cooperate with women in both national and international communities to establish a world of peace without war. We urge the alliance of all religions and call upon the politicians to legislate and enact an international law for cessation of wars and establishment of world peace. We establish IWPG branch offices in every country so that all women work as one and become peace messengers for world peace. We are the light for the future generation, cherishing each other and protecting life with a heart of peace and order that lasts forever. The five guidelines of IWPG stated above are unchangeable. Let all women of the world become one in equality. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. s s Guidelines The acting chairwoman and director of the IWPG Headquarters Hyun Sook Yoon

  4. 4. 6 7 International Law International Law Support and Advocacy In order to make a peaceful world without war, we need more than just hoping and desiring and must make peace be feasible through law and institution. In addition, every nation should consistently secure such legislation along with spreading a peaceful culture supported by the law-abiding spirit in each region around the world. IWPG strongly supports the enactment of ‘Law for Peace’ as a practical and innovative way to achieve peace. It is a project to support and promote the ‘Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War(DPCW)’ of HWPL, the cooperating organization of IWPG. The DPCW proclaimed by HWPL in 2016 contains a number of practical contents that can actually achieve peace, including the anti-war articles that prevent war from occurring. IWPG advocates and encourages the enactment of DPCW into international law with legally binding effects, and publicizes it widely in various countries and communities through various means. The signature movement promotes and enhances the DPCW to become an enforceable law. IWPG cooperates with city governments worldwide for support of world citizens through signature collecting campaigns on-line and off-line. IWPG’s campaign is to urge and publicize each article and clause of DPCW and make it easier for citizens to recognize it. IWPG carries out various campaigns such as cessation of arms production, empowerment of women’s right, and publicity based on the spirit of the ‘Peace Declaration(DPCW)’ in order to support all countries to recognize and accept the DPCW to accelerate the way to bring peace forward. ■Signature Movement ■Campaign
  5. 5. 8 9 The conferences and forums that provide detailed explanations of the ‘Peace Declaration(DPCW)’ are very effective in supporting, encouraging and pro- moting the ‘Peace Declaration(DPCW)’. In particular, the ‘9.18 IWPG Network Forum’ where women leaders and heads of government from all over the world gather, is a representative advocacy forum. In addition, various seminars are held to support and help understand the DPCW. ■Conferences, Forums Only Peace Conference International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) Korea Headquarters (Director Yoon Hyeonsuk) hosted peace conferences titled ‘Only Peace Conference’ through August and September of 2017. Underlining themes for the unification of the Korean Peninsula and to highlight the necessity and urge for an International Law instrument for peace, Only Peace Conference was hosted in South Korean regions including Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon, Cheonan, Yeosu, Jeonju, and Busan. Notably, the conference was hosted amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula amid a series of missile tests by North Korea.
