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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.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.

Campus Antiwar Network on Counter-Recruitment
CAN workshop at Socialism 2005, Chicago, July 3, 2005

Elizabeth Wrigley-Field (NYU, where the CIA had attempted to institute a pilot program for recruitment); Katrina Yeaw (San Francisco State University and the "SFSU 3") and Hadas Thier (City College, NYC and the "City College 4") presented a workshop on campus counter-recruitment to an overflow crowd of well over 100 people. Many students were in the audience. This workshop - given by three leading student organizers in the US - led to many discussions on how to get military recruiters off both high school and college campuses. Jorge Torres, a student counter-recruitment activist at Seattle Central Community College, moderated.

The Campus Antiwar Network is a prime organizer of the Counter-Recruitment Contingent planned for the September 24th marches on DC and San Francisco.
