About Oct 26th event:
The Chiapas Support Committee organized 3 on-line sessions of CompArte on the 26th of August, September and October to express solidarity and celebrate the EZLN’s 26th anniversary of building indigenous rebellion, land justice & autonomy and to gather culture-makers to work together to generate ideas, art and movement to build our own community-based visions of autonomy with justice and solidarity with indigenous struggles and movements everywhere.
The third and final session will showcase art by CompArtistas who have been participating in the sessions and invited guest artists.
The Chiapas Support Committee is inviting you to the fifth annual “CompArte: The Emiliano Zapata Community Festival,” celebrating the Zapatistas’ 26th year of indigenous rebellion, land justice and self-determination with poetry, art, music and community.
Sheltering-in to stay healthy and safe from the novel coronavirus has not meant that our communities and their struggles and movements against racism and war and for deep justice and liberation have stopped.
We are transforming sheltering-in into a time and space for critical and liberatory reflections and to broadcast our demands for justice, as millions continue mobilizing to end racism and police violence against black and brown lives.
Sheltering-in-place is a space for self-gestation, to flourish in community-based visions of justice and liberation. We are raising our voices and our shared visions from where we live, work, study, worship and play with art for liberation, with solidarity with the Zapatistas and indigenous struggles and in resistance to the ravages of capitalism.
“CompArte 2020 for the 26th” will take place between your home and ours in three online gatherings: August 26, September 26 and, culminating in a big online CompArte with a program of music, art and poetry, on October 26!
