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.

State budget protects the interests of the Irish ruling class
The Irish ruling class—itself dependent on American, British and Euro­pean capital—will be satis­fied with the state’s efforts to guaran­tee the “confi­dence” and “stability” that is the bedrock of their rising profits and vast fortunes, the CPI says in a statement.
Tugann cáinaisnéis an stáit cosaint d’aicme ceannasach na hÉireann
Beidh aicme cheannasach na hÉireann—a bhraitheann féin ar chaipiteal Meiriceánach, Briotanach agus Eorpach—lánsásta le hiarrachtaí an stáit ar an “muinín” agus an “seasmhacht,” ar bun­chloch iad dár mbrabús méadaitheach agus a saibhreas ollmhór, a chinntiú, deir an CPI i ráiteas.

Housing activists occupy a house in North Frederick Street
Gabhann gníomhaithe tithíochta seilbh ar theach i Sráid Frederick Thuaidh
On Friday 17 August members of the organisa­tions that had been occupy­ing a house in Summer Hill Parade, Dublin, moved their protest to a house in North Frederick Street.

Dé hAoine 17 Lúnasa d’aistrigh na heagraíochtaí a bhí i ngabháil seilbhe ar theach i bParáid Chnoc an tSamhraidh, Baile Átha Cliath, a n‑agóid go teach i Sráid Frederick Thuaidh.


Housing for all!
Tithe do chách!
The CPI and the Connolly Youth Move­ment are support­ing the coalition of organisa­tions taking part in the occupation of a house in Summer Hill Parade, Dublin, from which tenants were illegally evicted by gombeen-capitalists who plan to convert a number of houses to offices.

Tá tacaíocht á tabhairt ag an CPI agus Ógra Uí Chonaíle don chomh­ghuaillíocht atá ag glacadh páirt i ngabháil seilbhe ar theach i bParáid Chnoc an tSamhraidh, Baile Átha Cliath, ónar díbríodh tionóntaí go mí­dhleathach ionas go bhféadfadh rachmasaithe gaimbín roinnt tithe a ath­chóiriú mar oifigí.


Response to the minister for housing
Public housing must be universally accessible to stop it becoming ghettoised or a last resort for the poor, the CPI has said in a statement.

Freagairt ar an aire tithíochta
Deir an CPI i ráiteas gur gá tithíocht phoiblí a bheith ar fáil do chách ionas nach ndéanfar geiteo di nó nach mbeidh sí ina rogha dheiridh ag na boicht.


Congratulations to Palestinian solidarity activists
The CPI welcomes the passing by the Seanad of the Control of Economic Activity (Occu­pied Terri­tories) Bill, intro­duced by the indepen­dent senator Frances Black, an important and signifi­cant first step in what will be a tough battle to get it through the Dáil and make it the law of this state.

Comhghairdeas le gníomaithe um dhlúthpháirtíocht leis an bPalaistín
Fáiltíonn an CPI roimh an mBille um Ghníomhaíocht Eacnamaíoch a Rialú (Críocha faoi Fhor­ghabháil), a thionscnaigh Frances Black, seanadóir neamh­spleách, an chéad chéim agus céim thábhachtach shuntasach sa chath crua a bheidh ann chun é a chur chun cinn sa Dáil agus é a achtú mar dhlí an stáit seo.
