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.

Water charges: Working people need to be vigilant

The water struggle shows clearly the important and central role of mass mobilisation by working people in defence of their interests. The struggle created a focus and channelled the deep frustration of working people over “austerity,” the bank bail-outs, NAMA, the savage cuts in wages, and deteriorating working conditions.  Continue | Ar aghaidh

The attack on bus workers and rural communities continues
Despite what various commentators are saying, the minister for trans­port, Shane Ross, is doing the job he was appointed to do, namely destroy­ing the national trans­port service, the CPI says in a statement.

Leantar leis an ionsaí ar oibrithe bus agus ar phobail tuaithe
In ainneoin a bhfuil á rá ag tráchtairí éagsúla, tá an t‑aire iompair, Shane Ross, ag déanamh an obair a ceapadh é lena déanamh, is é sin an tseirbhís náisiúnta iompair a scrios, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.

Our sovereignty challenged
The opinion expressed by the EU com­mis­sioner for the environ­ment, Karmenu Vella, that the impos­ing of fines on those who waste water is not enough to meet the demands of the European Union, is a direct challenge to the sovereignty and democ­racy of this state, the CPI has said in a statement.

Dúshlán ár bhflaithis tugtha
Dúshlán díreach ar fhlaitheas agus ar dhaonlathas an stáit seo is ea an tuairim a nocht coimisinéir imshaoil an Aontais Eorpaigh, Karmenu Vella, nach leor fíneáil a ghearradh orthu siúd a chuireann uisce amú le héilimh an Aontais Eorpaigh a shásamh, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.
