Appropriately, here is Voice of Revolution from the Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist-Leninist) calling on workers to ‚’Celebrate May Day!‚’at a Rally at the GPO in Dublin.
May the First – the Day of the International Working Class – is a revolutionary holiday and festival for workers of all countries.
On this day workers workers all over the world march and demonstrate their total opposition to the capitalist system, class exploitation and oppression and reaction of all kinds, including national oppression by imperialism.
They demonstrate their confidence and determination to overthrow this rotten system of world imperialism and capitalism and replace it with the system which alone represents the true dignity of humanity – the socialist system – the first sage of communism in which class exploitation is abolished as well as all other products of class rule, such as fascism and racism, unemployment and crises (the fellow travellers of capitalism) and where the basis for the double oppression and exploitation of women is also eradicated.
Also in this eight page edition is a multipage report on the then recent funeral of Comrade Enver Hoxha of Albania as well as a long piece from his successo Ramiz Alia.
