Dear friends and community,
Our beloved friend, Brandon Lee was shot on August 6 at his home in Lagawe, Ifugao. He sustained multiple gunshot wounds. He has undergone operation and is in very critical condition.
Brandon is a staunch advocate for human rights and has been a volunteer paralegal with Cordillera Human Rights Alliance. Prior to moving to the Philippines, he was active with both the Filipino and Chinese community in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We are saddened, angry, outraged, and worried that Brandon has been targeted by what we believe are agents of the Philippine military to silence critics of the current Duterte Administration and people like Brandon who are raising awareness about the human rights abuses in the Philippines. Prior to the incident on August 6, he experienced intense harassment and surveillance.
Friends, please help Brandon and his family (wife and daughter) get through this difficult time. We ask that you please consider donating for medical costs and other expenses that may accrue.
If you prefer to donate via Venmo, please put #Justice4BrandonLee and send your monetary donation to one of the following people:
