Over twenty people attended a busy day of discussion and debate in Exeter on Saturday the 1st of December. Hosted by the Devon branches of the Communist Party the event brought together people from the Labour party, Green party and other campaigning groups.

Workshops focussed on topics including class, imperialism and multi-national companies and the relevance of the Communist Manifesto today. District Secretary Ken Keable also spoke about the achievements and growth of the party in the South West over the past two years. The day ended with questions and answers from the party's General Secretary, Robert Griffiths.

Numerous requests were made to repeat the event in the new year, expanding the topics discussed and inviting other groups to attend and lead sessions.
