RCP is a Maoist group, prone to violent direct action/street fighting (it descended from the SDS splinter group RYM2, sister to RYM1 which gave rise to the Weathermen).
In 1983-84, RCP organized contingents of American activists to travel to Germany to protest and carry out militant direct action against Reagan's deployment of Pershing and cruise missiles. The American contingents collaborated with the German Autonomen in this.

RCP was also the primary organizer (in collaboration with anarchists) of the 1985 No Business As Usual actions in the U.S.

Common decency. That's an idea which may make some people smile, but the only means of fighting a plague is – common decency.--Camus
