COMMUNIST PARTY OF IRELAND / PÁIRTÍ CUMANNACH NA hÉIREANN
Partisan · Patriotic · Internationalist
Páirtíneach · Tírghrách · Idirnáisiúnach

The Communist Party of Ireland is an all-​Ireland Marxist party founded in 1933. Its aim is to win the sup­port of the majority of the Irish people for ending the capital­ist system and for build­ing social­ism—a social system in which the means of pro­duc­tion, distri­bu­tion and exchange are publicly owned and utilised for the benefit of the whole people. Páirtí Marxach uile-Éireann a bunaíodh sa bhliain 1933 is ea Páirtí Cumannach na hÉireann. Is é aidhm an pháirtí tacaíocht thromlach mhuintir na hÉireann a bhaint amach do dheireadh a chur leis an gcóras caipitleach agus do thógáil an tsóisialachais—córas sóisialta ina bhfuil na córacha táirgthe, dáileacháin agus malairte i seilbh an phobail agus ina n-úsáidtear iad ar mhaithe leis an bpobal iomlán.

Solidnet—the inter­national solidarity network


 From the June issue:
Deepen the struggle, deepen the resistance

The people have voted, the Government has been formed, and of course it’s back to business as usual. The anger and aspirations that were expressed in the election campaigns, and in the results, have not been enough to force any sort of meaningful change in Government policy. Yes, the Government has conceded on some issues, mainly water charges; but these are only temporary, given the fact that recently Dáil Éireann voted not to dissolve Irish Water.  Continue | Ar aghaidh

Another Europe is possible—another EU is not
The CPI welcomes the decision of the British people to vote to leave the European Union. This decision of the people is a victory over Project Fear, unleashed by big business, global banks and financial institutions, with the EU and the ruling elite playing back-up.

Tá Eoraip eile indéanta—Níl EU eile indéanta
Cuireann an CPI fáilte roimh chinneadh mhuntir na Breataine ar an Aontas Eorpach a fhágáil. Is sárú é cinneadh seo an phobail ar Oibríocht Scanradh, a scaoil gnóthaí móra, bainc dhomhanda agus institiúidí airgeadais, agus an tAontas Eorpach agus an uasaicme mar chúltaca acu.

Ruling by fooling
Their intervention in the internal affairs of Britain by actively campaign­ing for a “remain” vote in the forth­coming refer­endum is a demon­stra­tion of how bankrupt the Irish political establish­ment is, the CPI says in a statement.

Ruling by fooling
Léiríonn a n‑idirghabháil i gcúrsaí inmheánacha na Breataine trí chanbhasáil ghníomhach a dhéanamh ar son vóta “Fan” sa reifreann atá le teacht a chlisiúnaí is atá bunaíocht pholaitiúil na hÉireann, deir an CPI i ráiteas.

UN Human Rights Committee report
The CPI welcomes the findings of the UN Human Rights Com­mit­tee, which has said that Ireland’s abortion laws violate the Inter­national Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and has called for wide­spread reform.

Tuairisc Choiste Cearta Daonna na Náisiún Aontaithe
Cuireann an CPI fáilte roimh chinneadh Choiste Cearta Daonna na Náisiún Aontaithe, a deir go sáraíonn dlí na hÉireann i leith ginmhilleadh an Cúnant Idir­náisiúnta ar Chearta Sibhialta agus Polaitiúla agus a iarrann leasú forleathan.

Political statement
In its political statement for June the National Execu­tive Com­mit­tee of the CPI states that the results of the elec­tions north and south only confirm a con­tinu­ation of the same failed anti-worker policies.

Ráiteas polaitiúil
Ina ráiteas polaitiúil don Mheitheamh deir Coiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta an CPI nach bhfuil mar thoradh ag na toghcháin sa tuaisceart agus sa deisceart ach na beartais chéanna frith­oibrithe a bhfuil teipthe orthu a dheimhniú.

Unveiling of plaque on Connolly House
After a parade through the city on Sunday 1 May, Dublin District Council of SIPTU unveiled a plaque on James Connolly House, East Essex Street, in honour of the Citizen Army men and women from the district who took part in the 1916 Rising.

We need to be back on the streets
Following the arrest of a number of water activists in Greystones, Co. Wicklow, the CPI calls for community activ­ists, trade unions and political organi­sations, as one united move­ment, to resume their protests.

Ní foláir dúinn bheith ar ais ar na sráideanna
Tár éis gur gabhadh roinnt gníomhaithe uisce sna Clocha Liatha, Co. Chill Mhantáin, iarrann an CPI ar ghníomhaithe pobail, ar cheard­chumannacha agus ar eagraíochtaí polaitiúla, mar aon ghluaiseacht aontaithe amháin, leanúint lena n‑agóidí.


Stop the TTIP!
The “Transatlantic Trade and Invest­ment Partners­hip” being negoti­ated between the United States and the Euro­pean Union is a threat to democracy that would attack workers’ rights, erode social stan­dards and environ­mental regu­la­tions, dilute food safety rules, and destroy digital privacy laws.
Cuir stop leis an TTIP!
Is bagairt ar an daonlathas í an “Pháirtíocht Thrasatlantach Trádála agus Infheistíochta” atá á plé idir na Stáit Aontaithe agus an tAontas Eorpach a dhéanfadh ionsaí ar chearta oibrithe, a chreimfeadh caighdeáin shóisialta agus rialacháin imshaoil, a lagódh rialacha sábháilteachta bia, agus a mhillfeadh dlíthe um phríobháid dhigiteach.
