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.

Tom Redmond

1938–2015



A person’s dearest posses­sion is life. It is given to them but once, and they must live it so as to feel no tortur­ing regrets for wasted years, never know the burning shame of a mean and petty past; so live that, dying, they might say: All my life, all my strength were given to the finest cause in all the world: the fight for the liberation of humanity.—Nikolai Ostrovski

 From the May issue:

“Spring statement” = winter of austerity

The much-hyped “spring statement” jointly presented by the minister for finance, Michael Noonan, and minister for public expenditure, Brendan Howlin, promised much and delivered little. Though it generated reams of newsprint and hours of mind-numbing radio and television coverage, people will be none the wiser, and no better off.   Continue | Ar aghaidh

70th anniversary of the victory over Nazi fascism
The resurgence of the fascist threat and the danger of a new war make it crucially important to learn the lessons of history, to remember the crimes of Nazi fascism, and to com­emorate the decisive role of the Soviet Union and the Red army, accord­ing to a declaration by 47 commun­ist and workers’ parties.

70 bliain ó threascairt an fhaisisteachais Nazi
Léiríonn aiséirí bhagairt an fhaisisteachais agus baol cogadh nua a thábhachtaí is atá sé go bhfoghlaimeofar ceacht na staire, go gcuimhneofar ar choireanna an fhaisisteachais Nazi, agus go gcomóirfear an pháirt a d’imir an tAontas Sóivéadach agus an tArm Dearg, a deir fógra ó 47 bpáirtí cumannach agus oibrithe.

Austerity: The challenges of organising
Paper presented by a representative of the CPI to a meeting with republican activists in Dublin, Saturday 14 March 2015.

Austerity: The challenges of organising
Páipéar a chuir ionadaí de chuid an CPI i láthair cruinniú de ghníomhaithe poblachtacha i mBaile Átha Cliath, 14 Márta 2014.


The establishment shows its contempt for the people
The crowing from the establish­ment and its tame media about forcing a climb-down by SYRIZA over the Greek debt and the con­tinu­ing austerity pro­gramme barely disguises the com­plete con­tempt that they have for the people, the CPI says in a statement.

Taispeánann an bhunaíocht a drochmheas ar an bpobal
Is ar éigean a cheileann an bunaíocht agus a meáin umhail a ndroch­mheas iomlán ar an bpobal lena mbinn­bhorraíocht ar an ngéilleadh a brúdh ar SYRIZA faoi fhiachas na Gréige agus an clár leanúnach déine, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


CPI condemns Stormont House Agreement
The CPI places on record its opposition to what is in effect the accep­tance of the Con­serva­tive “austerity” programme, the signal that major public assets, such as Belfast Harbour, are now “for sale” and that public-sector workers do not matter.

Cáineann an CPI Aontas Theach Stormont
Cuireann an CPI in iúl go gcuireann sé in aghaidh glacadh iarbhír le clár déine na gCoimeádach, comhartha go bhfuil an chuid is mó de na sócmhainní poiblí, ar nós Chalafort Bhéal Feirste, “ar díol” agus gur cuma leo faoi oibrithe san earnáil phoiblí.


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.
