Irish unity

The CPI advocates a united, socialist Ireland. The CPI has always been to the fore in applying Marxism-Leninism to the material conditions of a partitioned Ireland, seeking to fuse the national and social questions into a revolutionary strategy for the working class. Since its foundation the CPI has endeavoured to engage with republicans and to bring a clearer understanding of class and anti-imperialism to the republican movement.

Most recently, the CPI was instrumental in establishing the Peadar O’Donnell Socialist Republican Forum in 2013. The goal of the forum is to engage left-wing republicans of different political backgrounds, and to make the issues of class and anti-imperialism central to the demand for Irish unity. We participate in campaigns around national unity and in all-Ireland campaigns that focus on key issues such as health. These campaigns struggle to advance co-operation between working-class people across the country. Our party was instrumental in bringing about a united workers’ movement in the all-Ireland Irish Congress of Trade Unions.
