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:
Bus Éireann dispute ends

All unions involved in the three-week strike in Bus Éireann have now voted to accept the Labour Court’s recommendation, thus bringing an end to the dispute. The workers and unions should be commended for their exemplary behaviour during the most difficult of strikes, in the face of unilateral action by the Bus Éireann management. Workers in the other CIE companies who came out to support them in a solidarity strike played no small part in the securing of a more favourable deal than had been originally proposed.  Continue | Ar aghaidh
