1. Introduction

The "Party for Communism & Liberation" (abbr. "PCL") is an all Ireland communist organisation founded in 2022 with aims to build a Communist People's Union on the foundations of Marxist-Leninist-Maoism in Ireland. The party aims to bring socialism in our lifetime, we aim to achieve this by connecting communities and it's people under the banner of Communism and providing the people an alternative to the capitalist system.

2. Objectives
The main goals of the party are the following.
Objectives will change over time to adjust to the current political situation.
1. Fight for equality for all on the island, no matter the race, age or sexual orientation.
2. Build localised centre's of revolutionary resistance to combat the influence of capitalism and social liberalism and to help build a strong people's alternative to the current ruling system.
3. Highlight and Combat the housing crisis that the regime of Fíne Gael, Fíanna Fáil & Green Party has made much worse with the funding of landlords and privatisation tactics. We can combat the housing crisis by highlighting unused yet liveable buildings around the nation by certain means.
4. Highlight the imperialist grip that holds our nation on a triple lock. The United States, British Empire and European Union steal our national resources to fund their own personal gains, whether that's funding war crimes happening over sees or funding their own pockets.

3. Membership
Membership to the party is opened to all aged 16+ who subscribe to the constitution and views of the Party for Communism & Liberation.
People who wish to join the Party can do so by emailing "PCLIreland32@gmail.com" or by using the contact link on the website . An email response will include a form for those interested.

Membership to the party is worked out in 2 stages.
Members who join for the first 3 months will be under a probation period. This helps the member learn more about the party before being able to take important positions in the organisation such as branch chair or secretary. This does not stop members from producing ideas and bringing them to their local committees for discussion.


Upon completing the probationary period, members will be given the option to stay or leave. If the member chooses to stay, they will be gifted a membership card and the ability help shape the organisation at a national level by running for certain positions in which this helps them learn leadership and organisational skills.
