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 April issue:
Universal basic con-job

“Universal basic income” is being suggested by many on the left, as well as the right, as a solution to world in­equality and poverty . . . The inten­tion is that this would improve the living stan­dards of these very low-income earners; in reality it facili­tates the pay­ment of poverty wages. It actually subsi­dises rogue employers and encourages them to boost profits on the back of low wages. Continue | Ar aghaidh

Repeal the 8th!
Repealing the 8th Amend­ment is a neces­sary first step towards allow­ing women full and equal citizen­ship, the CPI says in a statement.

Aisghairtear an 8ú Leasú!
An chéad chéim agus céim riachtanach i dtreo saoránacht iomlán ionann a thabhairt do mhná a bheadh in ais­ghairm an 8ú Leasú, deir an CPI i ráiteas.

Positive and active neutrality versus NATO and the EU
The decision by the Govern­ment to expel a Russian diplo­mat as part of a co-ordinated response by EU and NATO member-countries is but another example of how far the Irish establish­ment has aligned this state with their mili­tary strategies, the CPI says in a statement.

Neodracht dhearfach ghníomhach in aghaidh NATO agus an Aontais Eorpaigh
Níl i gcinneadh an Rialtais taidhleoir de chuid na Rúise a dhíbirt mar chuid d’fhreagairt chomh­ordaithe bhall­stáit an Aontais Eorpaigh agus NATO ach sampla eile den chaoi a bhfuil bunaíocht na hÉireann ag ailíniú an stát seo lena gcuid straitéisí míleata, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.


Campaign for Public Housing
The Campaign for Public Housing held a demon­stration at the Ideal Homes Exhibition in Dublin to draw atten­tion to the activities of one of the sponsors, Permanent TSB Bank, which is selling mortgages to vulture funds.

An Feachtas um Thithíocht Phoiblí
