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 January issue:
A century of unfulfilled aspirations

Global debt is now becoming a major factor in the instability of the system of capitalism . . . Much has been written and will be written about the establishment of Dáil Éireann in January 1919 and its adoption of the Democratic Programme. That programme offered the people a vision of a better and more just Ireland, presented as a natural progression from the Proclamation of the Irish Republic read outside the GPO in 1916 by Patrick Pearse and signed by the revolutionary leaders of the 1916 Rising.  Continue | Ar aghaidh

The CPI has commemorated the centenary of the murder of Rosa Luxemburg, the pioneering German communist and feminist, with the publication of a supplement to Unity. The article “Es braucht mehr als Gewehre, eine Frau zu töten” (It takes more than guns to kill a woman) by Marion Baur is also avail­able in German.

Celebrating war shows the limits of Irish nationalism
Those forces within Irish nationalism that sided with the British state for their own material interests are still acting in those interests as they align themselves with the needs of imperialism, the CPI says in a statement.
