Dear comrade, sister or brother,

The Communist Party is writing to you as one of the millions of people whose work keeps our society going in good times and bad.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the value of all those workers who have continued to provide the goods and services that we all need to survive.

Despite their efforts, the virus has claimed more than 32,000 lives in Britain so far. We have a death rate per head of population FIVE times higher than Germany, TWICE as high as the US, higher than every major European country except Belgium, Italy and Spain – and 150 TIMES higher than China.

That’s the price being paid for decades of under-investment and privatisation in the NHS and social care in England, Scotland and...

As nations grapple with ways to contain the Covid-19 pandemic whilst trying to start reopening our economies, schools and borders, many government have sought to use technology as a way beat the pandemic.

Worldwide there was victory over fascism, and in Britain Labour won the general...

Geoffrey Roberts is Emeritus Professor of History at UCC and a former member of the British Communist Party.

The guns fell silent three-quarters of a century ago and this year’s commemoration of the end of the Second World War in Europe has been overshadowed by the coronavirus crisis. But the sharp political struggle about the causes, course and consequences of the war continues unabated. On one...

75 years ago today, the European theater of the Second World War, in which millions of people were killed or wounded and which caused a huge devastation worldwide, ended. Unconditional surrender of the German armed forces sealed the defeat of Nazi fascism.

The Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, and rapidly moved the country, where militarist traditions were already strong, towards war...

Communist Party general secretary Robert Griffiths said today (May 8), “Today is a special day. A day to celebrate with joy the triumph of democracy, independence and liberation in Europe over the deadly force of fascism, on May 8 and 9,1945.


We remember the sacrifice and continued to be inspired by the wonderful generation of our parents and grandparents who endured such privations and...

comunistaThe victory over Nazism and fascism in the Second World War is a major event in history, the memory of which must be preserved and defended in the face of repeated attempts at historical falsification aimed at making the broad public forget the decisive role played by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), communists and anti-fascists from around the world.
