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.

Páirceanna an áir i nGaza

The housing crisis continues to worsen
Tenants in private accommodation need to get organised and build a national campaign for their rights, the CPI says in a statement.
Tá an ghéarchéim tithíochta ag dul in olcas
Ba chóir do thionóntaí i lóistín príobháideach iad féin a eagrú agus feachtas náisiúnta a chruthú i gcomhair a gcuid cearta, deir an CPI i ráiteas.

The housing crisis
The announcement of an extension to the Government-backed mortgage scheme for first-time buyers will do nothing to solve the housing emergency, the CPI says in a statement.
An ghéarchéim tithíochta
Ní dhéanfaidh an síneadh atá fógartha i scéim na morgáistí ar son ceannaitheoir céad­uaire a bhfuil tacaocht aici ón Rialtas rud dá laghad a réiteoidh an ghéar­chéim tithíochta, a deir an CPI i ráiteas.

May Day solidarity meeting
The CPI held a successful May Day solidarity meet­ing in Belfast on Saturday 28 April to mark Workers’ Memorial Day and to com­memorate the bicentenary of the birth of Karl Marx and 150 years since the birth of James Connolly. Inter­national greet­ings were conveyed by the national chair­person of the Communist Party of Britain, Liz Payne. The inter­national secretary of the Tudeh Party, Navid Shomali, spoke about the situ­ation in Iran.
Cruinniú dlúthpháirtíochta Lá Bealtaine
D’eagraigh an CPI cruinniú dlúth­pháirtíochta idir­náisiúnta Lá Bealtaine i mBéal Feirste Dé Sathairn 28 Aibreán mar chomóradh dhá chéad bliain ó rugadh Karl Marx agus 150 bliain ó rugadh Séamas Ó Conaíle.

John Pinkerton, national chair­person, CPI, and Adam Murray, on behalf of the Connolly Youth Movement, spoke about the continu­ing struggle against imperial­ism and for inter­national solidarity.Le hamhráin ó Mel Corry agus Hermann Baur, nocht Marion Baur brat nua an pháirtí, a rinne sí as línéadach Éireannach. Tar éis an chruinnithe leagadh bláthanna ar Leacht Chuimhneacháin na Briogáide Idir­náisiúnta. Labhair John Pinkerton, cathaoirleach náisiúnta an CPI, agus Adam Murray, thar ceann Ógra Uí Chonaíle, faoin streachailt leanúnach in aghaidh an impiriúlachais agus ar son dlúth­pháirtíocht idirnáisiúnta.


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
D’eagraigh an Feachtas um Thithíocht Phoiblí léirsiú ag Taispeántas na dTithe den Scoth chun aird a dhíriú ar ghníomhartha Permanent TSB Bank, ceann de na hurraithe, atá ag díol morgáistí do chreach-chistí.
