Communist leader says revolutionary changes lie ahead


Addressing a conference of the Communist Party its leader Vojtech Filip said the time was ripe for revolutionary social changes. Filip who is running for re-election at the weekend party conference in Liberec said it was time to bring down the centre-right government and halt the anti-social reforms which were impoverishing the vast majority of the population. He said broad public support for anti-government demonstrations showed that the situation had reached a breaking point and ground-breaking changes would inevitably follow. Rousing speeches at the two day conference indicate that the Communists have not given up their long-term goal –to restore socialism in the country.
