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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.THIS SITE NO LONGER REFLECTS THE CURRENT AND ONGOING WORK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

"From Jeremy Corbyn, Labour Member of Parliament, Member of the Stop the War Coalition Steering Committee and of the National Council of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.
My greetings and good wishes to Traprock Peace Centre on this auspicious occasion. As part of a link around the world of people who want a world of peace and justice, not wars and greed, Traprock has done amazing work.
A source of information and inspiration in showing the illegal nature of the current war in Iraq and the danger of modern weapons, particularly Depleted Uranium, Trarock has shown what we, as ordinary people can do.
I will be forever grateful to Sunny and Charlie for the help and support they have given me. But more than that for the inspiration to all try to harder to bring a world of peace, through justice and honesty.
