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.

 From the October issue:

Climate change or system change?

The world is at a crossroads. We can change the system, or the system will change our climate catastrophically . . . As a result of the damage capitalism has done to our environment a huge environmental debt is owed to nature. If we are to survive, it has to be repaid, as we are fast approaching the point of no return.  Continue | Ar aghaidh


News Nuacht

Victory for Harland and Wolff workers
The announcement that Harland and Wolff will remain in business is due in no small measure to the swift action of the workers who occupied the yard to defend their jobs, the CPI says in a statement.

Bua ag oibrithe Harland and Wolff
Bhí baint nár bheag ag gníomh gasta na n‑oibrithe a ghabh seilbh ar an chlós chun a chuid post a chosaint leis an fhógra go leanfaidh Harland and Wolff i mbun gnó, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


Political statement
The National Executive Committee of the CPI issued a political statement following its regular meeting in September.

Ráiteas polaitiúil
D’eisigh Coiste Feidhmiúcháin Náisiúnta ráiteas polaitiúil i ndiaidh a chruinnithe rialta i mí Mheán Fómhair.


Attack on Gralton monument must be condemned by all
The CPI strongly condemns the attack last night on the monu­ment to Jim Gralton on the site of Gralton’s Pearse-Connolly Hall at Effernagh, Co. Monaghan.

Caithfidh gach duine an t‑ionsaí ar leacht Gralton a cháineadh
Cáineann an CPI go láidir an t‑ionsaí a rinneadh aréir ar leacht Jim Gralton ar shuíomh Halla an Phiarsaigh agus an Chonaíligh in Oifreanach, Co. Mhuineacháin.


Message of solidarity from Russian youth
The CPI has received a message from the commun­ist youth move­ment of the Russian Feder­ation with informa­tion about its activities and express­ing its solidarity with the struggle of the work­ing class in Ireland.



Teachtaireacht dhlúthpháirtíochta ó óige na Rúise
teachtaireacht faighte ag an CPI ó ógra cumannach Chó­naidhm na Rúise le heolas faoina gcuid gníomhartha agus a léiríonn a ndlúth­pháirtíocht le streachailt na haicme oibre in Éirinn.





Help stop the United States kill­ing Venezuelans
Sign the petition against the American block­ade of Venezuela, which has already caused the death of 40,000 innocent people.

Cabhraigh le stop a chur le marú daoine de mhuintir Venezuela ag na Stáit Aontaithe
Sínigh an achainí in aghaidh an imshuí Mheiriceánaigh ar Venezuela, atá freagrach as bás 40,000 duine neamh­urchóideach cheana.


The latest US aggression against Venezuela
The CPI once again expresses its soli­darity with the people of Venezuela and condemns the latest round of sanc­tions imposed by the United States and the tighten­ing of its illegal blockade. The Communist Party of Venezuela has also con­demned the blockade and called for the highest level of unity by those who love peace and wish to defend the nation.

An t‑ionsaí Meiriceánach is déanaí in aghaidh Venezuela
Dearbhaíonn an CPI ath­uair a dhlúth­pháirtíocht le muintir Venezuela agus cáineann an babhta deireanach de smacht­bhannaí atá á ngearradh ag na Stáit Aontaithe agus teannadh an imshuí mhí­dhleathaigh. Tá Páirtí Cumannach Venezuela tar éis an t‑imshuí a cháineadh freisin agus an t‑uasmhéid aontachta a iarraidh orthu siúd a bhfuil meas acu ar an tsíocháin agus a dteastaíonn uathu an náisiún a chosaint.


Harland and Wolff should be nationalised
The CPI expresses its solidarity with the workers at the Harland and Wolff ship­yard in Belfast and welcomes the action taken by them in defence of their jobs. It further­more calls for the national­ising of the ship­yard, which could be the basis of a sustain­able engineer­ing industry within an all-Ireland industrial strategy.

Ba chóir Harland and Wolff a náisiúnú
Cuireann an CPI a dhlúthpháirtíocht leis na hoibrithe i long­chlós Harland and Wolff i mBéal Feirste in iúl agus fáiltíonn roimh an ghníomh a rinne siad ar son a gcuid post, agus ina theannta sin éilíonn náisiúnú an long­chlóis, a d’fhéadfadh a bheith ina bhunús de thionscal inbhuanaithe innealtóireachta mar chuid de straitéis uile-Éireann tionsclaíoch.
