On Monday, October 27, Troy Davis, an African American on death row in
Georgia, is scheduled to be legally lynched by the state of Georgia. Davis was
convicted in the 1989 killing of a police officer despite what Amnesty
International calls "overwhelming doubts about his guilt." No
physical forensic evidence was presented at Davis' trial, and 7 of the 9
witnesses have recanted their testimony, with at least two saying they were
pressured by police to finger Davis as the killer. Yet on October 14 the
Supreme Court refused to allow a new hearing in his case. TAKE ACTION NOW using
the link below to let the Georgia Parole Board, Governor, Legislature, and
congressional delegation as well as President Bush, Senators Obama and McCain,
U.N. Secretary-General Ban, Congressional leaders and members of the media know
you demand No Execution of Troy Davis!

On Monday, October 27, Troy Davis, an innocent man, is scheduled
to be executed unless you act to prevent it. He was convicted solely on witness
testimony, and 7 of the 9 witnesses have since recanted, many alleging that
police coerced them into making false statements.
I join with millions in the US and around the world in demanding
that you Stop the execution of Troy Davis. Innocence matters to me. Justice
matters to everyone.
I urge you to act now.
