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.

Austerity: The challenges of organising
Paper presented by a representative of the CPI to a meeting with republican activists in Dublin, Saturday 14 March 2015.

Austerity: The challenges of organising
Páipéar a chuir ionadaí de chuid an CPI i láthair cruinniú de ghníomhaithe poblachtacha i mBaile Átha Cliath, 14 Márta 2014.


One-day stoppage in the North
Thousands of workers and members of the public through­out the North of Ireland took part in one-day pickets and demonstrations in protest against the race to the bottom and the Stormont House Agreement.
Stopadh lae sa Tuaisceart
Ghlac na mílte ceard­chumannaí agus baill den phobal ar fud Thuaisceart na hÉireann páirt i bpicéid agus léirsithe lae mar agóid in aghaidh an ráis chun an íochtair agus Aontais Theach Stormont.

The establishment shows its contempt for the people
The crowing from the establish­ment and its tame media about forcing a climb-down by SYRIZA over the Greek debt and the con­tinu­ing austerity pro­gramme barely disguises the com­plete con­tempt that they have for the people, the CPI says in a statement.

Taispeánann an bhunaíocht a drochmheas ar an bpobal
Is ar éigean a cheileann an bunaíocht agus a meáin umhail a ndroch­mheas iomlán ar an bpobal lena mbinn­bhorraíocht ar an ngéilleadh a brúdh ar SYRIZA faoi fhiachas na Gréige agus an clár leanúnach déine, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


CPI condemns Stormont House Agreement
The CPI places on record its opposition to what is in effect the accep­tance of the Con­serva­tive “austerity” programme, the signal that major public assets, such as Belfast Harbour, are now “for sale” and that public-sector workers do not matter.

Cáineann an CPI Aontas Theach Stormont
Cuireann an CPI in iúl go gcuireann sé in aghaidh glacadh iarbhír le clár déine na gCoimeádach, comhartha go bhfuil an chuid is mó de na sócmhainní poiblí, ar nós Chalafort Bhéal Feirste, “ar díol” agus gur cuma leo faoi oibrithe san earnáil phoiblí.


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.
