URGENT Troy Davis Take Action NOW to stop execution

In the face of an overwhelming public outcry the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles shockingly refused to grant clemency to Troy Davis last Friday.

Troy Davis is still scheduled to be executed by the state of Georgia on September 23 at 7pm.

Mr. Davis' serious claims of innocence, which include the recantation of 7 out of 9 witnesses, have never been heard in court. Further, no murder weapon was found and no physical evidence linked Davis to the crime.

Urge the board to reconsider its decision:

Amnesty International and the NAACP held a rally on Thursday night in Atlanta calling for clemency. Earlier in the day, Amnesty International and others delivered over 20,000 petitions, just a small fraction of the over 200,000 collected from all over the world.

We are all shocked and saddened by this latest blow. But together we can continue to press for justice for Troy Davis.

He is probably Innocent.
