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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK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

The Campus Antiwar Network (CAN) has achieved international recognition as the network of US campus organizations that have opposed war on Iraq and the occupations of Iraq and Palestine.Over the past year, CAN has been invited to participate in the European Social Forum in Paris (Monique Dols and Tim Kaldas represented CAN), the World Social Forum and an Occupation Watch mission to Iraq (Khury Petersen-Smith went to Iraq - you can listen to his interview here and his June 19, 2004 presentation with Rania Masri.) Euopean and Asian student activists have addressed national CAN conferences. Last year, Omar Waraich of Students Stop the War in the UK gave the keynote address. The potential for this international networking of the European and US student movements was recognized early, as Jeremy Corbyn, British Labour MP, gave the keynote address at the bi-coastal organizing conference in DC on January 17, 2003, and Helen Salmon of the National Union of Students (UK) and the Stop the War Coalition (UK) participated as an 'ambassador' of the British student movement.
