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

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.

 From the January issue:
Public housing—not social housing

As a solution to the housing, rent and homelessness crisis we need a massive public housing plan, with both new construction and the conversion of NAMA property into public housing.
     The advantages of public housing to working people are many. It would not just resolve the present crisis—a national emergency on any sober reflection—but also strengthen communities and the working class..  Continue | Ar aghaidh

Speech by Eddie Glackin, National Executive Committee, CPI, to the 18th Inter­national Meet­ing of Com­mun­ist and Workers’ Parties, Hanoi, October 2016.

18ú Cruinniú Idir­náisiúnta na bPáirtithe Cumannacha agus Oibrithe
Óráid Eddie Glackin, Coiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta, CPI, do 18ú Cruinniú Idir­náisiúnta na bPáirtithe Cumannacha agus Oibrithe, Hanoi, Deireadh Fómhair 2016.

Study circles
The CPI has begun its winter study circle. The circle began with two important works by Marx and Engels, Wage Labour and Capital and Value, Price and Profit. These will form the basis for the study circle’s reading of Capital (volume 1), beginning some time after Christmas. The separate study circle reading Imperialism in the 21st Century by John Smith has also begun. Both circles meet in Connolly House (43 East Essex Street).

Ciorcail staidéir
Tá a chiorcal staidéir gheimhridh tosaithe ag an CPI. Thosaigh an ciorcal le dhá shaothar thábhachtacha le Marx agus Engels, Wage Labour and Capital agus Value, Price and Profit. Cruthóidh siad seo bunús léamh an chiorcail staidéir de Capital (imleabhar 1), ag tosú am éiginn tar éis na Nollag. Tá an ciorcal staidéir ar leith atá ag léamh Imperialism in the 21st Century le John Smith tosaithe freisin. Cruinníonn an dá chiorcal i dTeach Uí Chonaíle (43 Sráid Essex Thoir).



Statement on debt
Reports in the media confirm that the state has paid more than €40 billion (€40,000,000,000) in interest on the bank bail-out in the last five years—almost the same amount as the bank bail-out itself, the CPI says in a statement. This confirms what the party has been saying since the banks were bailed out.

Ráiteas ar na fiacha
Dearbhaíonn tuairiscí sna meáin gur íoc an stát níos mó ná €40 billiún (€40,000,000,000) mar ús ar tharrtháil na mbanc sna cúig bliana seo caite—beagnach an méid céanna a caitheadh ar tharrtháil na mbanc féin, a deir an CPI i ráiteas. Dearbhaíonn an tuairisc seo a bhfuil á rá ag an bpáirtí ó tarrtháladh na bainc.

Rotten to the core
The EU Commission has ordered Apple to pay €13 billion in back tax to the Irish state. This windfall tax should be put immediately into the National Pension Fund to guarantee future workers’ pensions, the CPI says in a statement.

Úll lofa go smior
Tá Coimisiún an Aontais Eorpaigh tar éis ordú go n‑íocfadh Apple €13 billiún i riaráistí cánach don stát Éireannach. Ba chóir go gcuirfí an t‑amhantar seo isteach láithreach sa Chúlchiste Náisiúnta Pinsean, ionas go gcinnteofaí pinsin oibrithe amach anseo, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.
