Localizing Peace Day: A briefer on the International Day of Peace Ordinance and Resolution Background: GenPeace
  • GenPeace is a national coming together of youth organizations and individuals. We are a youth-led network working towards a just and lasting peace.
  • We want to have local manifestations of supporting peace through resolutions and ordinances. For this year, GenPeace seeks LGU support for Peace Day.
  • Background: What’s Peace Day?
  • September 21: is the UN-declared (thru a UN General Assembly Resolution) International Day of Peace, Ceasefire and Non-violence.
  • Background: Armed Conflicts
  • Our country is still affected by armed conflicts until now. The conflicts are low-intensity, unconventional and protracted.
  • The armed conflicts are in two fronts: Communist Insurgency and the Bangsamoro Struggle.
  • Background: Policy Environment
  • Internationally:
  • Peace Day (21 September) is a UNGA Resolution (UNGA Res. 282)
  • The UN Security Council Resolution 1325 further promotes the role of women in peacebuilding around the world.
  • Background: Policy Environment
  • Nationally:
  • Our constitution is a constitution of peace. (Art. 2 Sec. 2)
  • The Peace and Security Chapter of the Philippine Development Plan 2011-2016 puts primacy to the peace negotiations not militaristic and violent options.
  • The National Government is undergoing peace talks with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, and is pursuing talks with the CPP-NPA-NDF.
  • Background: Policy Environment Locally, what are our policies on peace? Why should we support the Resolution? The resolution is three-fold: 1. It promotes the Peace Day (21 Sept) 2. It supports the Peace Processes. 3. It joins the global call for a Peace Day 24-hour ceasefire EVERYWHERE* *see peaceoneday.org for more details on the Global Truce Campaign Why should we support the ordinance? Primarily: The ordinance simply “Institutionalizes the celebration of the International Day of Peace” in our locality. It also…
  • provides collaboration from a broad range of sectors/groups/communities.
  • highlights the role of youth in the celebration.
  • Where possible, provide funding for peace day initiatives in our locality.
  • What’s in it for us?
  • For conflict-affected communities the Ordinance and/or Resolution’s benefits are simple: less/no war and more peaceful communities.
  • What’s in it for us?
  • For our localities that do not experience armed conflicts directly, the Institutionalization of Peace Day provides us with opportunities to:
  • Learn more about the peace issues in the country
  • Collaborate as a “community” through multi-sectoral, multi-stakeholder peace initiatives.
  • Support the peace processes of the national government, at the local level.
  • Pass the ordinance, Pass the resolution! Support the Peace Day, Advance the Peace Process!
