Rally at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) on Wednesday, October 9 from 6-7pm to demand that the Department of Homeland Security and Customs & Border Protection stop hiding the truth about what happened to Muslim Filipino human rights defender Jerome Aba, who has spoken out about the physical and psychological torture he endured while held by CBP at SFO from April 17-19, 2018.
For over one year, DHS and CBP have failed to answer our questions about their detention of Jerome. Instead, they have given concerned community members the run around, made conflicting statements to the media, and flouted our Freedom of Information requests.
On October 9, the National Lawyers Guild will file a federal lawsuit demanding that DHS and CBP turn over all records pertaining to Jerome. Join the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines-Northern Cal, National Lawyers Guild-San Francisco Bay Area Chapter, and BAYAN-USA at the airport to demand accountability and say to DHS and CPB: stop the cover up!
