The Rapid Response Network (RRN) offers prompt solidarity to workers’ struggles against exploitation and repression. We alert groups and individuals when workers call for support.
The fights for decent wages and working conditions, plus the right to organize, are constantly met with severe punishment. We must not passively accept the presence of products on store shelves without understanding—and actively opposing—the harsh conditions of exploitation and repression under which they are produced.
The network is comprised of people like you from all over the U.S., Canada, Europe, and we hope to grow beyond. We are the consumers of goods, made via exploitation in countries dominated by imperialism.
Our aim is to coordinate our efforts with workers who are organizing autonomously. This means they are not controlled by political parties, non-profits organizations, or outside entities that limit their ability to guide their own struggles. Part of our mission is to publicize and build support for their struggles, under their guidance and in their interests.
The RRN was initiated in south Florida by an anti-imperialist/anti-capitalist collective – One Struggle. Network participants do not necessarily share One Struggle’s overall viewpoints, but rally and unite for the purpose of lending solidarity to workers struggling against exploitation. As One Struggle-South Florida is currently not active, the RRN is now a free-standing network.
Anyone can join the RRN. It’s simple to participate as many of our campaigns are email and social-media based. We also organize demonstrations and direct actions, beyond the digital world.
