6th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace
The World’s Call for Peace, Urging Support for
the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War

RE: Peace Letter, a Miracle of 193 Countries
May 25th, replies to Peace Letters start a miracle

This year the ‘6th Annual Commemoration of the Declaration of World Peace’ will be held under the theme of ‘The World’s Call for Peace, Urging Support for the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War’ with various peace campaigns around the globe.

The 10 articles and 38 clauses of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW), which are clearly seen embedded within the contents of the Declaration of World Peace, directly state the responsibility that a nation has as a member of the international community, including the maintenance of friendly relations between states, repurposing weapons that kill to benefit humanity and respect for international law. It also includes a standard for the freedom of religion and the eradication of violence and illegal acts caused by religion, as well as the spreading of a culture of peace. The DPCW also emphasizes the participation of citizens in building a peaceful global village through areas such as education and welfare.

To promote peace through the voluntary participation of citizens, the event held on May 25th every year in more than 100 cities in 50 countries around the world is now being held simultaneously with the ongoing ‘Legislate Peace’ Campaign, which is a movement that has spread to 174 countries with over a million citizens around the world urging for the enactment of an international law based on the principles of peace embodied in the DPCW. In particular, approximately 160,000 letters of peace were handwritten by the youth last year to advocate for the DPCW and support the establishment of world peace, and in March of this year letters were officially sent to the heads of state from 193 countries, calling for support for the DPCW.

On 25 May 2019, with the slogan, ‘”RE: Peace Letter”, a Miracle of 193 Countries: May 25th, replies to Peace Letters start a miracle.’ participants will urge the heads of state to send letters in response to the ones they received, and also write and send additional letters with messages of peace to high-level officials of governments and international organizations in 193 different countries.

the one voice telling the answer to peace.
