We will continue to pressure our legislative representatives to urge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to help fund the airlift. The US government says they cannot fund Brandon's airlift because he is not a public servant. But we all know that Brandon put his life on the line for serving the people.

Watch Brandon's Story on Democracy Now!Background
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 long term medical care and other expenses that may accrue. For updates in the Philippines please follow:

Thank you so much for your donation which is critical at this time for the airlift and also immediate and long term medical costs for Brandon.
