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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK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

FROM PROTEST TO RESISTANCE: OUR GENERATION WON'T GO!
National Student Counter-Recruitment Conference
October 22-23 at UC-Berkeley
Sponsored by the Campus Antiwar Network
The last year has seen an amazing surge of counter-recruitment efforts
on campuses across the country - with students kicking recruiters off
campuses from Seattle Central Community College and UC-Santa Cruz on
the West Coast, to Southern Connecticut State University and City
College of New York on the East Coast, and a whole host of schools in
Students have found myriad ways of taking the military to task for the
lies it tells us, for the bigotry of its 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' policy,
and most of all, for asking our generation to become cannon fodder in
an occupation the majority of Americans oppose. As young people
increasingly reject being recruited, according to Major General Michael
Rochelle, the US Army's recruiting commander, "Today's conditions
represent the most challenging conditions we have seen in recruiting in
my 33 years in this uniform."
It's time for students to figure out how to take this movement even
further. This October, join hundreds of college and high school
students from around the country as we discuss and debate the future of
this movement -- and plan to reclaim our schools from recruitment for
an unjust war.
