COMMUNIST PARTY OF IRELAND / PÁIRTÍ CUMANNACH NA hÉIREANN

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 May issue:
Water: Scarce commodity or valuable natural resource?

As Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael agree to set up another committee to manage the affairs of the rich, water charges and Irish Water have been used as a political football between them. In this centenary year it just goes to show that James Connolly got it right when he wrote: “If you remove the English army to-morrow and hoist the Green Flag over Dublin Castle, unless you set about the organisation of the Socialist Republic your efforts would be in vain . . .”  Continue | Ar aghaidh

The 1916 Rising: A risen people challenges the empire
Alt le Eugene McCartan a foilsíodh i Communist Review, iris ráithiúil theoiriciúil Pháirtí Cumannach na Breataine.

Vote for withdrawing from the European Union!
The CPI has expressed its solidarity with all pro­gres­sive forces in Britain, and in particular with the Commun­ist Party of Britain, in the forth­coming cam­paign for Britain to with­draw from the European Union. In particular it calls on working people in the north-east of our country to vote for leaving the EU.

Vótáil ar son tarraingt amach as an Aontas Eorpach!
Tá an CPI tar éis a dhlúth­pháirtíocht le fórsaí forásacha uile sa Bhreatain a fhógairt, agus go háirithe le Páirtí Cumannach na Breataine, sa reifreann díreach rompu faoi thrraingt amach na Breataine as an Aontas Eorpach. Iarrann sé go háirithe ar an bpobal saothair in oir­thuaisceart ár dtíre vótáil ar son fhágáil an Aontais Eorpaigh.


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.
