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 Blogs have been consolidated and the calendar has been archived for security reasons; all other links remain the same, and virtually all blog content remains intact.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

VANDANA SHIVA:
“INDIA DIVIDED: DIVERSITY & DEMOCRACY UNDER ATTACK“

Sunday April 10, 2005    

One of India's leading physicists, Shiva is a world-renowned environmental leader, activist, author and thinker. Director and founder of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology, and Ecology and a leader in the International Forum on Globalization. (www.vshiva.net) She is the author of many books, including “Water Wars: Pollution, Profits, and Privatization”; “Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature and Knowledge”; “Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply”; “Monocultures of the Mind”; and “The Violence of the Green Revolution”.

“India Divided” describes a society where traditional cultures collide with the new economy of globalization, and charts the course of India's war of fundamentalisms in the age of terror. This event was co-sponsored by the Department of Women’s Studies, Mount Holyoke College, and The Odyssey Bookshop. Info: 532-3142, mailto:odysseybks@aol.com. It was held at 7 PM at Gamble Auditorium, Mount Holyoke College, Rt 116, S Hadley. (Summary provided by event organizers.)
