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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.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

The National Priorities Project - The Cost of Invading Iraq - "Since 1983 providing Americans with information on the local impacts of federal spending and budget priorities. Data for Democracy.The best defense against tyranny (economic, political, or religious) is a well-educated public." It offers an essential interactive data base that shows the magnitude of each state's share of Pentagon spending as well as what the same dollars could buy in the state in terms of essential human services. This is a great and indispensible site! When we went to Washington for Emergency Lobby Day on September 30, 2002, we distributed their data on the cost of a war with Iraq for each state to over 100 citizen lobbyists.

ericblumrich.com - Shows the truth behind the fiction with video clips, along with animated humor. "Somewhere in the middle of March, moved by the anger and frustration I felt at the unelected government that currently runs the show here in the United States, I created a little piece of flash called antiwar2. Within days, it had been featured on Buzzflash. The next thing I knew I was getting hundreds of e-mails, and my webserver was overloaded to the point that I had to move it to a new host. Since then, I've been creating further animations, and building a new site to house them. "

"Records of the Traprock Peace Center document the Center's efforts since its founding in 1979 to train and educate people locally, nationally, and globally, in matters relating to disarmament and nonviolence, as well as the Center's successful 1980 attempt to put a nuclear weapons moratorium ("Freeze") referendum on the national ballot. (The referendum passed in the general election of that year and was supported in all three districts of Western Massachusetts where the attempt was made.) Records include correspondence, newsletters, conference materials, newsclippings and other printed material."
