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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK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

Hear George Galloway's Historic Talk at Boston's Faneuil Hall
“We who live in the United States or Britain, only have to answer one question, do we stand with the occupier, or with those who are resisting colonial occupation.”
“The swamp of hatred that our policies have created in the Muslim world nourish the mutation of hatred that believes killing innocent people in New York or London is somehow a blow against those responsible in our countries for those policies. All we have done be invading and occupying Iraq is increase the number of people who hate us and the intensity with which they hate us.”
“The US and Britain’s unquestioning support for the State of Israel is the flaw that lies at the heart of the West’s attitude toward the Muslim world.”

Traprock Peace Center co-sponsored the Boston event. Also participating were speakers from the International Socialist Organization and the Campus Antiwar Network.
Traprock and the national sponsors wish to thank Jeff Manzelli. He recorded and edited the audio as our web editor was unavailable. His websites are http://www.freemanz.com/ and http://492cafe.org/
We were in a pinch to find an audiographer for that night, and coming to our aid was Stan Robinson, the radio host with the WZBC News Team, the radio station at Boston College. We also had help from two people affiliated with the North Bridge Chapter of The Alliance for Democracy. See the poster of WZBC's programming.
