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.

Solidnet—the inter­national solidarity network


 From the February issue:
Expressway to privatisation

It looks like the Government have their greedy sights on Bus Éireann and the rural public transport system. They have been doing a very good job in their media over the last couple of years, demonising Bus Éireann as a hopeless case and a huge financial burden on the taxpayer . . . They fail to point out that the financial problems are a direct result of policy decisions to starve Bus Éireann of the financial support needed to provide decent public transport to our citizens living in rural Ireland.  Continue | Ar aghaidh
