A Korean non-profit, non-governmental global peace initiative organisation, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL) has issued a press statement on the ongoing human rights crisis in Myanmar.

In the statement sent to 9News Nigeria, the organisation expressed deep concern over the situation in Myanmar, which has resulted to numerous casualties and stands as a grave threat to human rights.

The organisation said that the recent efforts of the Myanmar military to suppress nonviolent protests have led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries.

The press statement further stressed that using violence to suppress peaceful protests and silence voices for change is contrary to the will of the people of Myanmar. They called on the Myanmar authorities to respect people’s human rights and freedom of expression as the clamping down on nonviolent protests has left a continuing number of deaths of civilians.

The organisation as well asked 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.

They finally said, “In one voice, HWPL and all our members around the world express the 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.”

HWPL Statement on Human Rights Crisis in Myanmar

We, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), express deep concern over the situation in Myanmar, which has caused casualties and posed grave threats to human rights.

The recent efforts of the Myanmar military to suppress nonviolent protests have led to dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries. The number is still continuing to increase.

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.

Using violence to suppress peaceful protests and silence voices for change is contrary to the will of the people of Myanmar. Authorities should respect people’s human rights and freedom of expression.

We call on all relevant parties in Myanmar to express regret at the ongoing situation and engage in dialogue to seek a peaceful resolution.

We are confident that the international community will support this effort, which will contribute to security and peace not only in Southeast Asia but also in other parts of the world.

We, HWPL, along with our members all over the globe are deeply concerned about the harm caused to civilians by the escalating violence in Myanmar. International attention is focused on Myanmar, and history will remember these moments.

The situation should be resolved in a just and peaceful way also for the sake of the growing generation, who will learn from this crisis to build their future.

We call on all parties to refrain from repression or force and instead settle the crisis through dialogue and consensus based on mutual respect and understanding. And we call on the United Nations to take active measures so that the human rights and safety of the people of Myanmar may be protected.

We ask 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.

Man Hee Lee, a peace advocate of HWPL,
and HWPL members around the world
