Brief history

 – Last year Sergio Sosa was an emplolyee at the non-profit, La Raza Community Resource Center, and manager of their food distribution  (in the Mission District). He  along with several employees organized a picket in front of the center when their concerns about serious issues from the mis-management of programs, finances and treatment of staff by the Executive Director Gabriel Medina were not heard. The employees took their concerns to the board of directors of Centro Del Pueblo. Their concerns were once again not heard.

They formed a picket once a week outside of 474 Valencia St. during their lunch hour.

Sergio Sosa and an attorney with the organization were initially fired. Since then other employees have also been fired.

Sergio’s reputation has been falsely tarnished by Gabriel Medina

Some community members continued the picket Medina has harassed some of the people picketing.

As a last resort to call attention to the situation a hunger strike by Maria Cristina Guiterriez was started and continued for 15 days.

Gabriel Medina continues to mis-manage La Raza Community Resource Center. Many of the workers are immigrants whose livilhoods depend on their jobs at the center.

Please come out to support the Right of Workers to Organize!

3. Monday, 11:00am, Demand a meeting with Consulate General Neil Ferrer!

In person

San Francisco Philippine Consulate
447 Sutter St.


On Wednesday, February 1, 2023, Philippine human rights advocates and members of the Justice for Brandon Lee Campaign accompanied Brandon to demand a meeting with Consul General Neil Ferrer of the San Francisco Philippine Consulate. Brandon and the delegation wanted to meet with Con Gen Ferrer regarding the new Commission on Human Rights Report on Brandon’s case, as well as share concerns around the Anti-Terror Law, red-tagging, and surveillance in our community.

The delegation was once again denied a meeting with Con Gen Ferrer, and instead a consulate staff noted the concerns of the delegation and said that these concerns will be relayed to the Consul General. This marks the fourth time Brandon was denied a face-to-face meeting with Con Gen Ferrer and only the second sit-down meeting inside the Philippine Consulate. 

It has been over a year and half since Deputy Consul General Raquel Solano met with Brandon and said that the San Francisco Philippine Consulate would follow up on his case, but there have been no communications with Brandon since then.

After meeting with the consulate staff, Brandon shared, “I was able to assert more of my story. I looked at her and hoped she felt my humanity as I shared my experience.” While each member of the delegation was able to share their points and concerns with the consulate staff, we continue to push for an in-person meeting with Con Gen Ferrer himself to hear Brandon’s story and own the responsibility to help push Brandon’s case forward. We also aim to hold Con Gen Ferrer accountable for hosting members of the National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) on their speaking tour in the United States. The NTF-ELCAC regularly red-tags human rights defenders in the Philippines, just like Brandon.

The NTF-ELCAC in Northern Luzon targeted the province of Ifugao for neutralization resulting in the assassination attempt on Brandon’s life in his work in the Ifugao Peasant Movement and the Cordillera Peoples Alliance-Ifugao chapter. Prior to the attempted assassination, Brandon was red-tagged and faced ongoing harassment. The NTF-ELCAC is now operating in the United States openly targeting dissenters and critics of the U.S.-Duterte and now Marcos Regime.

Please join Brandon Lee on February 6, 2023 in demanding a meeting with Consulate General Neil Ferrer to investigate the attempted assassination, to expose the role of the Consul General in ushering in state surveillance on our people’s organizations here in the U.S., to improve services for Filipinos in the United States, to address the 2022 Philippine electoral fraud, to Free Jen Awingan, and to drop all charges against the 7 Northern Luzon activists.
