grassrootspeace.org

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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.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

SAAR serves the better understanding and advancement of relations between the Austrian and the Arab peoplesBesides organizing exhibitions, seminars, lectures and discussions on various cultural and political themes, SAAR has been sending parliamentary and/or expert delegations to many Arab countries.

SAAR has also been conducting cooperation programs between universities, dialog projects between youth organizations, advanced training programs for Arab specialists in Austrian hospitals and institutions as well as relief and development projects in several countries.

By invitation, about 50 doctors made a postgraduate training in Austria. “Aladin's Miracle Lamp” is the biggest and most important relief project we ever had.

The Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future  

Research, TFF

 Website: http://www.transnational.org/index.html

 Contact: Sara Ellis * tff@transnational.org
 Mission:  TFF is a foundation dedicated to researching peace and resolving  conflicts with ever less violence to humans, cultures, and nature. We  believe that alternatives to the main trends of our time, including  those of the media, are needed. Our website offers critical and  constructive analyses and viewpoints.
Iraq is of particular importance to our work. The foundation has just completed its first fact-finding mission to the country, and for years we have posted TFF articles and Feature articles on the negative effects of the sanctions and the counter-productivity of  threatening and conducting war against the country.
We have created a collection of links relevant to Iraq, please visit: http://www.transnational.org/links/iraqlink.html
