Peace advocate, Man Hee Lee Quotes:
The entire world knows, Mindanao is a place of religious conflict (between the Catholic and Islam), a place where 120,000 people have been sacrificed during a 40-year conflict, and no politician could solve the conflict. This region was a battlefield fraught with tension as the government forces (Catholic) and the rebel forces (Islam) aimed their weapons towards each other. Due to this no one could walk around, even for a second, without fear. Our peace delegation and I came to this place under the name of the God of peace. Surrounded by police, we were escorted to the hotel which was our meeting place.
We gathered the community leaders of Mindanao Island, such as mayors, college professors, youth and many more, in the main conference room of the hotel. We asked the two religious representatives, a representative of the Catholic Church (Capalla) and a representative of the Muslims (Governor) and their leading figures, to join us. Many people gathered and the two religious representatives sat on the platform. The host of this meeting first asked the two religious representatives to voice their opinion. After that, he called my name as the third speaker and I went onto the stage. Firstly, I asked the audience if they want to leave conflict as a legacy to the future generations or to leave peace as a legacy to the future generations. Their answer was “peace.” And then I asked the same question to the two religious representatives. I also asked if causing conflict to bring death upon people was an act that God, the master of your religion, wants. Are conflict and killing good deeds or evil deeds? I told them that these make known whether or not their religion is a group of evil. I advised them to reject the wrong and choose the right. So they pledged before God and all the people of the world to put an end to all the conflicts and to never cause them again, and so they also signed the peace agreement. All the people in the audience who witnessed this were filled with great joy. They embraced each other in joy and danced. The 40-year conflict in Mindanao was restored through peace. The rebel forces and the government forces also signed for peace in front of their president. On January 25th, the next day, many universities gathered at Mindanao state university and held a peace festival. All these show that God was with us according to His promise.
We, the peace delegation, will leave peace as a legacy to the future generations by having all agree and sign for the enactment of the international law for the cessation of war and world peace, before God and all people of the world, and we call heaven and earth as witnesses. We will also make sure all become one under the creator God through the alliance of religions and create a world where God reigns.

HWPL, Peace Activists to Join Mindanao Peace Summit
MINDANAO, Philippines – Organizers are expecting South Korean peace activists to join the Maguindanao provincial peace summit in Buluan town on May 25.
Mindanao Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu, main organizer of the summit meant to show multi-sectoral support to the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL), said they have invited Man Hee Lee Chairman of HWPL.
Man has actively been helping foster religious understanding among Christians, Muslims and other groups.
Summit organizers are also expecting representatives from the Heavenly Culture, World Peace and Restoration of Light, a popular South Korean peace advocacy outfit, to attend the summit in Buluan.
Two officials of the Seoul-based non-government organization, Philippine coordinator Joon Park and its manager, Kim Si Man, had earlier visited Buluan to search for a site where they can construct a “peace monument” in recognition of Mangudadatu’s domestic peace programs and his administration’s extensive support to the Mindanao peace process.
Only Mangudadatu, from among the five provincial governors in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, has openly been campaigning for public support to the draft BBL.
The bill aims to establish a Bangsamoro political entity based on a peace deal between Malacañang and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
Mangudadatu said they have also invited Central Mindanao’s ranking Muslim clerics and leaders of Christian sects, including Catholic priests to join the summit.
Lawyer Bobby Katambak, a senior member of the provincial board, said leaders of the MILF have also been invited to the summit, where speakers are to talk about the gains of the Mindanao peace process and the importance of the BBL.
Members of the congressional committee handling the bill had voted in favor of the measure, now for plenary proceedings.
The May 25 provincial peace summit is the 33rd major pro-BBL activity of Mangudadatu’s office since the bill was submitted last year to Congress, via Malacañang, by the Bangsamoro Transition Commission.
The commission, chaired by the MILF’s chief negotiator, Muhaquer Iqbal, is comprised of seven representatives each from the rebel group and the government.
