Dear friends,

We are inviting you and your family, co-workers, cultural and community
members, and activists to enjoy the 2022 CompArte: The Emiliano Zapata
Community Festival.

The Chiapas Support Committee in partnership with the Peralta Hacienda
Historical Park is organizing CompArte [2]: The Emiliano Zapata
Community Festival at Peralta on Saturday, August 27, 2022, from
12:00-4:00 pm.

We invite you to enjoy an afternoon of music, poetry, art, tamales,
aguas frescas, good food, and community!

CompArte Festival & Solidarity

CompArte was started in 2016 [3] by the Zapatistas (EZLN, Ejército
Zapatista de Liberación Nacional, Zapatista Army of National
Liberation) in Mexico to bring together the best of our communities’ and
movements’ art, music, poetry, stories, dance, and other cultural work
for social justice, Indigenous autonomy and liberation and in solidarity
with the Zapatistas.

The Chiapas Support Committee took up the call and has held CompArte
every year since 2016 both in-person and online during the pandemic
sheltering-in-place. This year CompArte is back in the open air at
Peralta Hacienda Park in Oakland!

CompArte 2022 is a call and a festival:
Por la vida | For life:
Contra todas las guerras | Against all wars

CompArte 2022 will bring together artists, poets, musicians, painters,
cultural workers, and the community to express solidarity with the
Zapatistas and enjoy an afternoon filled with joy and community!

Our city, our region, our state, the U.S. and the world are on the cusp
of struggles that are rocking the foundations of the capitalist system.
Through CompArte and other spaces, you are invited to dream and walk
together, to weave the world where all worlds fit, and together raise
our voices and our songs to demand peace and justice across the U.S. and
the world.

Our CompArte 2022 is dedicated to the defense of all life and against
all capitalist wars and depravations. The gathering will begin with
Danzantes making a movement-offering to the four directions, recognizing
that we are on Ohlone land. We will have tamales & aguas frescas, son
jarocho, barrio and revolutionary poets, portable mural art, live
painting, and other activities.

Program: CompArte 2022 will include the son jarocho group AntiFaSon [4],
with anti-fascist _sones_, Oakland poets, music, a DJ, arts & crafts
vendors, tasty tamales, and other good food and deep community.

Join us to celebrate the movements and struggles for justice, peace &
solidarity with the Zapatistas and Indigenous people, everywhere with
words of resistance, tenderness and community in movements for
liberation and self-determination.
