The HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee

 

The HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee (full name: the HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee for the Implementation of the International Law on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace, hereinafter the Committee) is rapidly growing globally since its first launching ceremony on March 15.

The Committee is attracting growing attention and support from a wide spectrum of peace lovers transcending nationality, skin color, and faiths. Its members launch regional Committees as peace-building efforts that surpass domestic levels and work to build a legacy of peace for generations to come by urging governments for the implementation of the International Law on the Cessation of War and Achievement of World Peace.

Reflecting this rapid growth, the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) launched the HWPL Peace Advocacy Committee in Cape Town, South Africa on April 15 and in Skopje, Macedonia on April 26 respectively.

The launching ceremonies highlighted the purpose of the Committee and its progress before the appointment ceremony of committee members and the signing ceremony in support of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War. The newly established Committees in respective regions pledged to operate in ways that meet the needs of the local regions, and shared opinions and plans for future programs and operations.
