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.

VOTE COMMUNIST

Repudiate the debt—the first step towards an alternative Ireland
Séantar an fiachas—an chéad chéim i dtreo Éirinn éagsúil

On Friday 23 May, voters in Dublin and Cork will have an oppor­­tunity to show their opposition to the illegiti­­mate debt imposed on our people. Two CPI candidates—Paul Doran for South Dublin County Council (Clon­dalkin local electoral area) and Michael O’Donnell for Cork City Council (Cork Noth-East local electoral area)—are stand­­ing on a plat­­form of repudi­at­ing the debt, break­­ing with the euro, and reclaim­ing Ireland’s sovereignty.

Dé hAoine 23 Bealtaine beidh deis ag vótóirí i mBaile Átha Cliath agus i gCorcaigh ar a naimhdeas leis an bhfiachas neamh­dhlisteanach a gearradh ar ár muintir a chur in iúl. Beidh beirt iarrthóirí ar son an CPI—Paul Doran, Comhairle Contae Bhaile Átha Cliath Theas (togh­limistéar áitiúil Chluain Dolcáin), agus Michael O’Donnell, Comhairle Cathrach Chorcaí (togh­limistéar áitiúil Corcaigh Thoir-Thuaidh)—ag seasamh do bheartas chun an fiachas a shéanadh, briseadh leis an euro, agus flaitheas na hÉireann a ath­ghabháil.

 From the current issue:

Legal attack on SIPTU is a warning to unions

Recently, various stories have appeared in the capitalist media about pay increases, hinting that IBEC and SIPTU want to return to some form of “social partnership,” purely on the pay issue. (None of the woolly stuff about social issues.) . . . At the same time, capitalist shock-troops are using different negotiating tactics: force and intimidation.   Continue | Ar aghaidh

Joint statement of communist and workers’ parties on the sixty-fifth anniversary of NATO
Ever since it was created sixty-five years ago, NATO has been an imperialist political-military bloc, a key element in its strategy of domination and exploitation, says a statement signed by forty-eight communist and workers’ parties.

Comh-ráiteas na bpáirtithe cumannacha agus oibrithe ar chothrom cúig bliana agus seasca NATO
Ó bunaíodh é cúig bliana agus seasca ó shin, bloc polaitiúil-míleata impiriúlach is ea NATO, gné lárnach dá straitéis forlámhais agus dúshaothraithe, a deir ráiteas de chuid cúig agus seasca páirtí cumannach agus oibrithe.
