November 5, 2007: This website is an archive of the former website, traprockpeace.org, which was created 10 years ago by Charles Jenks. It became one of the most populace sites in the US, and an important resource on the antiwar movement, student activism, 'depleted' uranium and other topics. Jenks authored virtually all of its web pages and multimedia content (photographs, audio, video, and pdf files. As the author and registered owner of that site, his purpose here is to preserve an important slice of the history of the grassroots peace movement in the US over the past decade. He is maintaining this historical archive as a service to the greater peace movement, and to the many friends of Traprock Peace Center. Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK OF TRAPROCK PEACE CENTER, which has reorganized its board and moved to Greenfield, Mass. To contact Traprock Peace Center, call 413-773-7427 or visit its site. Charles Jenks is posting new material to PeaceJournal.org, a multimedia blog and resource center.

Banner Painting for Peace with Iraq - Cheaper than Billboards, and Portable!
The Banner Painting Affinity group of the Western Massachusetts Stop War Coalition has been busy today, painting huge banners for display along the interstate on Martin Luther Kingf day on January 20, 2003. You'll note the precision of the lettering, which is essential given the size of the project and the many helping hands (few of them artists or sign painters.) The letters are projected onto the banner for easy tracing.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the activity - a great way to create a bold statement while also fostering our community with each other. If you have questions about banner painting for peace or would like more information about this project, please contact organizers. Kate Stevens, for the ad hoc committee that has helped organize this effort, is available via Songline50@aol.com.
