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 September issue:

Illusions of recovery

In early September the minister for public expenditure, Brendan Howlin, claimed that the Government’s economic strategy was so successful that “we’re not going back to boom and bust.” But he is not the first social democrat, and no doubt will not be the last, to make that grandiose claim.   Continue | Ar aghaidh

Ráiteas polaitiúil
Ráiteas polaitiúil de chuid Choiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta an CPI.


ISIS is the new 11th of September
ISIS is an American project out of control, according to an article by Kemal Okuyan in the newspaper of the Communist Party of Turkey.

Is é ISIS an 11ú Meán Fómhair nua
Tionscadal de chuid na Stát Aontaithe atá as smacht is ea ISIS, a deir alt le Kemal Okuyan i nuachtán Pháirtí Cumannach na Tuirce.


Arrest of peace activist a disgrace and an affront to justice
The CPI strongly condemns the imprison­ment of Niall Farrell to serve a two-week sentence in Limerick Prison for a peaceful protest against the continued use of Shannon Air­port by the US war machine.

Náire agus masla don chóir is ea gabháil agus príosúnú gníomhaí síochána
Cáineann an CPI go géar príosúnú Niall Farrell chun príosúnacht dhá sheachtain a chur isteach i bPríosún Luimnigh mar gheall ar agóid shíochánta in aghaidh úsáid leantach Aerfort na Sionainne ag gléas cogaidh na Stát Aontaithe.


The First World War and a century of slaughter
There is nothing to celebrate in the slaughter of the First World War, the CPI says in a statement: it is a time to reflect on what the same imperial powers have done over the last century.

An Chéad Chogadh Domhanda agus céad bliain sléachta
Níl rud ar bith i sléacht an Chéad Chogadh Domhanda ba chóir dúinn a cheilúradh, a deir an CPI i ráiteas: tá sé in am againn machnamh a dhéanamh ar a ndearna na cumhachtaí impiriúla céanna i rith an chéad seo caite.


The Inter-Imperialist War, 1914–­18
“The Inter-Imperialist War, 1914–18: Not a noble cause” was the theme of a public meet­ing on Satur­day 26 July at which Eddie Glackin (CPI) and Brian Hanley (historian) spoke. Both talks will be published shortly as pamphlets.


Ba é “The Inter-Imperialist War, 1914–18: Not a noble cause” an téama ag cruinniú poiblí Dé Sathairn 26 Iúil, lenar labhair Eddie Glackin (CPI) agus Brian Hanley (staraí). Foilseofar an dá chaint go luath i bhfoirm paimfléid.


CPI opposes commemoration of imperialist slaughter
On Saturday 12 July members of the CPI draped a large banner on the front railings of Trinity College, Dublin, as part of its campaign to challenge the Irish establis­hment and its controlled media’s interpre­tation of the Inter-Imperial­ist War, 1914–18. Trinity College, in collabor­ation with RTE and the National Library, had organised a “World War One Roadshow” to mark the hundredth anni­versary of the imperial slaughter. Irish commun­ists will continue to challenge this distorted presen­tation, seeing it as part of the establish­ment’s strategy to reintegrate this state in imperialist war adventures. The banner carries Connolly’s famous slogan hung from Liberty Hall: “We serve neither King nor Kaiser—but Ireland.” The CPI has brought the slogan up to date: “We serve neither London, Brussels nor Washington—but the Irish working class.”

Cuireann an CPI in aghaidh chomóradh an tsléachta impiriúil
Dé Sathairn 12 Iúil chroch baill den CPI brat mór ar ráillí tosaigh Choláiste na Tríonóide, Baile Átha Cliath, mar chuid dá fheachtas chun cur in aghaidh an chiall a bhaineann bunaíocht na hÉireann agus na meáin atá faoina smacht as an gCogadh Idir-Impiriúlach, 1914–18. D’eagraigh Coláiste na Tríonóide, i gcomhar le RTE agus an Leabhar­lann Náisiúnta, “Seó Bóthair an Chéad Chogadh Domhanda” chun suntas a thabhairt do chothrom céad bliain an tsléachta impiriúil. Leanfaidh cumannaithe na hÉireann le cur in aghaidh an léiriú saofa seo, ag féachaint air mar chuid de straitéis na bunaíochta chun an stát seo a chomh­tháthú athuair in eachtraí impiriúla cogaidh. Ar an mbrat tá mana cáiliúil an Chonaíligh a crochadh ar Halla na Saoirse: “We serve neither King nor Kaiser—but Ireland.” Tá an CPI tar éis an mana a thabhairt suas le dáta: “We serve neither London, Brussels nor Washington—but the Irish working class.”
