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.

Called by the Northern Ireland Committee of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, it brought public transport, ambulance services and other public services to a standstill.   Continue | Ar aghaidh

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.


All must stand united
The decision of the High Court to imprison five activists is a blatant attempt by the state to bully communities that are resisting the water charges, the CPI has declared in a statement.

Caithfidh gach aon duine seasamh le chéile
Iarratas fhollasach ag an stát an cos ar bholg a imirt ar phobail atá ag cur in aghaidh na dtáillí uisce is ea príosúnú na seacht ngníomhaí, a deir ráiteas de chuid an CPI.

Welcome for May Day conference
The CPI welcomes the announcement by the five trade unions involved in the Right2Water campaign that they will be convening a special May Day conference on Friday 1 May and Saturday 2 May.

Fáilte roimh chomhdháil Lá Bealtaine
Fáiltíonn an CPI roimh fhógra na gcúig cheard­chumann atá páirteach san fheachtas Right2Water go mbeidh comhdháil speisialta Lá Bealtaine á dtionóladh acu Dé hAoine 1 Bealtaine agus Dé Sathairn 2 Bealtaine.

“SYRIZA is not going to defy the EU or NATO. What kind of left is this?”
An interview with Kostas Papadakis, member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Greece.

“Níl sé ar intinn ag SYRIZA dúshlán an EU ná NATO a thabhairt. Cén sórt eite chlé í sin?”
Agallamh le Kostas Papadakis, ball de Choiste Láir Pháirtí Cumannach na Gréige.

A group of concerned citizens has estab­lished Reclaim the Vision of 1916: A Citizens’ Initia­tive for 2016, in order to re­assert the politi­cal prin­ciples and objec­tives that animated the 1916 Rising and to show their continu­ing relevance for Ireland today.

Fís 1916 a Athghabháil
Tá grúpa de shaoránaigh chásmhara tar éis Reclaim the Vision of 1916: A Citizens’ Initia­tive for 2016 a bhunú chun na prionsabail agus na haidhmeanna polaitiúla a spreag Éirí Amach 1916 a ath­dhearbhú agus a n-ábharthacht leanúnach d’Éirinn sa lá atá inniu ann a léiriú.


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.
