Agreement Marks Grenada’s Support for International Peace law, DPCW
Peace diplomats from the Washington D.C. branch of Heavenly Culture and World Peace (HWPL), in partnership with the Coalition of Caribbean Leaders for Peace (CCLP), traveled to St. George’s this past week to celebrate Grenada’s former Prime Ministers, Tillman Thomas and Samuel Hines’, entry into the newly formed CCLP.
The CCLP works closely with regional organizations and international leaders in the Caribbean Community encouraging leaders in office to adopt international peace law the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). The DPCW is a legal framework for spreading a culture of peace on a local, national, and international level.
The DPCW, which serves as the solution for worldwide peace and conflict resolution, has already been enacted as a National Declaration in several countries around the world; including Antigua and Barbuda, Seychelles and eSwatini, and international organizations such as the Central American Parliament.
The goal is for the law to be presented as a regional resolution through the CARICOM, Caribbean Community.
Samuel Hinds, former Prime Minister of Guyana and Co-Chair of CCLP, when asked what’s the most important need for the Caribbean, he answered “Peace and the culture of peace.”
