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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK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.

Formation and growth of the US independent, democratic and grassroots antiwar
student movement - October 26, 2002 to January, 2005
Here, we present an index to the history of CAN from October 26, 2002 to the present. There is much that is not included, such as coverage of regional CAN conferences in other parts of the US (we're in the Northeast), and CAN's highly successful campus speaking tours (coordinated with partners such as the Muslim Students Association). We encourage people to visit campusantiwar.net for upcoming events, resources and information about CAN. Please consider ways to uplift this independent, democratic and grassroots student antiwar network. Special thanks to Katrina Yeaw, Kirstin Roberts, Emily Goldstein, Elizabeth Wrigley-Field, Monique Dols, and Phil Gasper for giving suggestions on content, contributing photographs or providing narrritives.
