Press release

On the occasion of May Day—International Workers’ Day—we publicity launch a united statement signed by fifteen communist parties from throughout the European Union as a common position against the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union and the revised Treaty on the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).

    All the parties call upon Workers throughout the European Union to mobilise and to resist these treaties and the anti-people policies of the European Union and their national allies.

    All signatories expressed their Solidarity with Irish Workers and supported the call for a No vote by the Irish people in the referendum on 31 May.

Eugene Mc Cartan
General Secretary

Joint statement issued by communist parties from across the European Union calling for maximum opposition to the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union and the revised Treaty on the European Stability Mechanism (ESM)

The European Union and the ruling classes of the member states are determined to make working people pay a very heavy price for the deepening crisis of the system.
We Communist and Workers' parties of the member states of the European Union call on Workers across the EU to resist and oppose the adoption of the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union and the revised Treaty on the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).
These two treaties would make “Eurozone” member states and practically all other countries signing these agreements into permanent regimes of economic austerity involving deeper and deeper cuts in public expenditure, rises in indirect taxes, reductions in wages, sustained liberalisation of markets and privatisation of public enterprises, services and vital national assets.
The strategy is to have low wages, low public spending, mass poverty and Workers having few rights. The treaties are designed to make these measures into a permanent feature of the EU that are impossible to reverse.
The impact of these treaties will not be confined to the member states of the Eurozone. They will provide the bench-mark for further attacks on Workers' rights and conditions across the whole of the EU. The ruling classes have declared open warfare on Workers in a generalised offensive.
These treaties are designed to neutralise the potential of national working class formations to influence or change national economic and social policy. They, along with previous treaties, are about blocking any avenues for the working class to defend itself or to promote policies of social progress and a socialist alternative.
They will make austerity permanent by continuous external interference of EU institutions in the affairs of member states in relation to economic and social policy, in the interests of monopoly capitalism.
In this they have the active collaboration of the ruling class and its political representatives in each country. These treaties will further negate and deeply undermine national and sovereign rights.
Any policies that the ruling classes across the European Union can deliver will inevitably make the people pay for this crisis of capitalism. Promoting the interests of the working class is only possible by confronting and breaking with this destructive system.
We, Communist and Workers' Parties value and salute the mass response from the Workers and other social strata affected by the measures and policies of big capital, in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy and call upon Workers and their trade unions, and people's mass organisations, to resist these renewed attacks and to mobilise and assert a working class response to the crisis of state monopoly capitalism.
In the immediate battles of today our parties will present the vision of Socialism as the answer to the crisis of the capitalist system.

D’eisigh páirtithe cumannacha an Aontais Eorpaigh an comh-ráiteas seo a leanas ina n-éilítear an cur is tréine arbh fhéidir in éadan an Chonradh um Sheasmhacht, Comhordú agus Rialachas san Aontas Eacnamaíoch agus Monatarach agus an leasú don Chonradh um Mheicníocht Eorpach Seasmhachta (MES)

Tá an tAontas Eorpach agus aicmí ceannais na mballstát meáite ar thabhairt ar oibrithe íocadh go daor as géarchéim fhástach an chórais.
Iarrann muide, páirtithe Cumannacha agus Oibrithe bhallstát an Aontais Eorpaigh, ar oibrithe an AE streachailt i gcoinne glacadh leis an gConradh um Sheasmhacht, Comhordú agus Rialachas san Aontas Eacnamaíoch agus Monatarach agus an leasú don Chonradh um Meicníocht Eorpach Seasmhachta (MES).
Bhunódh an dá chonradh seo buanchóras déine i mballstáit an “Eoraréigiúin” agus sna tíortha uilig, beagnach, a chloífeadh leis; ní bheadh de thoradh orthu ach cur le ciorruithe ar chaiteachas poiblí, arduithe ar chánacha indíreacha, laghdaithe ar thuarastail, liobrálú leanúnach ar mhargaí agus príobháidiú ar fhiontair phoiblí, ar sheirbhísí agus ar acmhainní riachtanacha náisiúnta.
Aidhm na straitéise seo: tuarastail ísle, caiteachas íseal poiblí, bochtanas forleathan, oibrithe ar bheagán cearta. Tá na conarthaí seo dréachtaithe le go mbeadh na céimeanna seo ina mbuanchuid den AE nach bhfeadfaí a chealú feasta.
Ní ballstáit an Eoraréigiúin amháin a bheadh thíos leis na conarthaí seo. Ba sprioc iad do ionsaithe breise ar chearta is ar choinníollacha oibrithe an AE uilig. Tá cogaíocht iomlán á fógairt ag na haicmí ceannais ar oibrithe leis an ollionsaí seo.
Cumadh na conarthaí seo le tionchar eagraíochtaí náisiúnta na haicme oibre ar pholasaithe eacnamaíocha agus sóisialta náisiúnta a neodrú. Maille le conarthaí atá i bhfeidhm cheana féin, féachann siad le cosc a chur ar chumas an lucht oibre é féin a chosaint nó polasaithe a chuirfeadh forás sóisialta nó an rogha sóisialach chun cinn.
Daingneoidh siad déine trí ladar an AE a chur go leanúnach i ngnaithe na mballstát bainteach le polasaithe eacnamaíocha agus sóisialta le leas an ghaimbíneachais mhonaplachta a dhéanamh.
Chuige seo, tá aicme ceannais chuile thír is a gcuid ionadaithe polaitiúla, ag obair le chéile. Cuirfidh na conarthaí seo le cealú agus le treascairt cearta atá bunaithe ar fhlaithiúnas náisiúnta.
Cuirimidne, Páirtithe na gCumannach is na nOibrithe, ard-luach ar, agus fáilte roimh, fhreagairt mhór na n-oibrithe is na sraitheanna sóisialta eile atá thíos le beartais agus polasaithe an ghaimbíneachais mhóir sa nGréig, in Éirinn, sa bPortaingéil, sa Spáinn agus san Iodáil. Iarrann muid ar oibrithe gona gceardchumainn is ar eagraíochtaí leathana na hionsaithe athnuaite seo a throid is slógadh a dhéanamh le freagairt aicme na n-oibrithe do ghéarchéim an ghaimbíneachais mhonaplachta a fhógairt.
I gcathanna reatha an lae inniu, beidh fís an tSóisialachais mar fhreagra ag na páirtithe seo againne ar ghéarchéim chóras an ghaimbíneachais.
