Right To Know Committee: Southwest Philadelphia Workers And Residents Fight Back!

The Right To Know Committee (RTKC) came together in response to the toxic workplace and neighborhood conditions brought on by two factories in Southwest Philly. In June of 1994, a Defense Personnel Supply Center (DPSC) and an oil refinery complex (run by Sunoco Oil) were put under scrutiny by the federal government following the findings of massive pollutant outputs deep under the surface of the surrounding neighborhoods. These two factories have been sitting along the Schuykill river for decades, putting out countless tons of chemical waste into the river, soil, and air.

    The Question Of The Revolutionary Anarchist Organization: A Common Struggle Position Paper (adopted September 15, 2002)

    Common Struggle - Libertarian Communist Federation is still a small anarchist federation and, in our mind, there is still a lot of work to do in order to see the emergence of the type of revolutionary organization we advocate in our region.

Our activities are organized around theoretical development, anarchist propaganda, and intervention in the struggle of our class, be it autonomously or by direct involvement in social movements.
