Troy Davis

Amnesty International Report 2003
Weight: 1.9 lbs
Method of Disposal: Donating or given away, though dated it is still contains a lot of relevant information

After Troy Davis has been on death row for 19 years, his fourth death warrant has been signed.  He could be executed as early as September 21st, despite the fact that 7 of 9 witnesses have recanted testimony against him and some have described being strongly encouraged by law officials to incriminate him.  There was never any physical evidence to link him to the murder of a police officer, and there is another possible suspect.  There are several large groups involved in the fight to save Troy Davis’ life, including Amnesty International and the NAACP.  His story has been reported for years and yet here we are, all these years later, and he is scheduled to be executed this month.  If you have not already signed petitions, told your family/friends, donated money to ad campaigns, attended rallies/protests, now is your chance.  It is not too late.  He has a clemency hearing on the 19th.  It is particularly important that the people of Georgia take a stand, as this is happening in their own state.  If anyone would care to join me, I will be attending the march and rally at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Friday, September 16th.  This is his last chance.
