Following the success of last year's Communist Party Speaking Tour to launch the new edition of Britain's Road to Socialism, this autumn will see Robert Griffiths, CP General Secretary, and Bill Greenshields, CP Chairman, spearhead a new tour covering the length and breadth of Britain.

Under the banner "Britain Needs Socialism" local and national speakers will address public meetings outlining a positive alternative to the government's austerity agenda.

In the South West events are planned in Yeovil, Plymouth, Bristol and Dorchester.
