Jason M. Ferreira

Center for Political Education

In 2004 Jason Ferreira and Rayan Elamine were the speakers in a discussion entitled: "Battle of Algiers Post-Film Discussion." The aim of the discussion attempted to contextualize the film in the history of the 50’s and 60’s, highlighting the film’s relevance for activists and organizers today. The discussion was held at the San Francisco based Center for Political Education, an organization closely associated with the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.[1]

Letter to Obama

In March 2009 dozens of 'human rights groups' and activists in the United States, signed a statement urging President Barack Obama to rethink his decision to boycott the United Nations-sponsored anti-racism conference.

As you know, the Durban Review Conference is one of the most important international platforms for discussing the elimination of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerances. Given the brutal history of slavery and Jim Crow in the United States, your Administration has much to contribute to this discussion. A boycott would be inconsistent with your policy of engagement with the international community…

Individual signers of the statement included Jason Ferreira, Department of Race and Resistance Studies, College of Ethnic Studies, San Francisco State University.[2]
