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.

Water charges: Working people need to be vigilant

The water struggle shows clearly the important and central role of mass mobilisation by working people in defence of their interests. The struggle created a focus and channelled the deep frustration of working people over “austerity,” the bank bail-outs, NAMA, the savage cuts in wages, and deteriorating working conditions.  Continue | Ar aghaidh

Water charges: Working people need to be vigilant
Working people need to be vigilant regarding the Government’s manoeuvring in relation to water charges, the CPI has said in a statement.

Táillí uisce: Ní foláir don phobal oibre a bheith san airdeall
Ní foláir don phobal oibre a bheith san airdeall ar chleasaíocht an Rialtais maidir le táillí uisce, a deir ráiteas ón CPI.


The attack on bus workers and rural communities continues
Despite what various commentators are saying, the minister for trans­port, Shane Ross, is doing the job he was appointed to do, namely destroy­ing the national trans­port service, the CPI says in a statement.

Leantar leis an ionsaí ar oibrithe bus agus ar phobail tuaithe
In ainneoin a bhfuil á rá ag tráchtairí éagsúla, tá an t‑aire iompair, Shane Ross, ag déanamh an obair a ceapadh é lena déanamh, is é sin an tseirbhís náisiúnta iompair a scrios, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


Continue to push for an end to water charges
The CPI calls on working people to continue to mobilise and push for the full abolition of water charges and for a referendum to put the people’s ownership of all water resources into the Constitution of Ireland.

Brú ar aghaidh chun deireadh a chur le táillí uisce
Iarrann an CPI ar an lucht saothair fanacht le chéile agus brú ar aghaidh chun deireadh iomlán a chur le táillí uisce agus chun reifreann a thionól a chuirfidh úinéireacht an phobail ar na hacmhainní uisce go léir i mBunreacht na hÉireann.


Solidarity with Bus Éireann workers
At the Southern Area Congress of the CPI today [1 April 2017] delegates con­firmed their support for the Bus Éireann workers and their col­leagues in Irish Rail and Dublin Bus in their struggle to protect pay and con­ditions and the rural trans­port network.

Dlúthphártíocht le hoibrithe Bhus Éireann
Ag Comhdháil Limistéar Deiscirt an CPI inniu [1 Aibreán 2017] dhearbhaigh na toscairí a dtacaíocht le hoibrithe Bhus Éireann agus lena gcomh­ghleacaithe in Iarnród Éireann agus Bus Átha Cliath ina streachailt chun pá agus coinníollacha chomh maith leis an ngréasán tuaithe iompair a chosaint.


Our sovereignty challenged
The opinion expressed by the EU com­mis­sioner for the environ­ment, Karmenu Vella, that the impos­ing of fines on those who waste water is not enough to meet the demands of the European Union, is a direct challenge to the sovereignty and democ­racy of this state, the CPI has said in a statement.

Dúshlán ár bhflaithis tugtha
Dúshlán díreach ar fhlaitheas agus ar dhaonlathas an stáit seo is ea an tuairim a nocht coimisinéir imshaoil an Aontais Eorpaigh, Karmenu Vella, nach leor fíneáil a ghearradh orthu siúd a chuireann uisce amú le héilimh an Aontais Eorpaigh a shásamh, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.
