Action Alert: Stop Exectution of Troy Davis in Georgia

Villager at the AfroSpear’s Electronic Village blog urgently brings to our attention the case of Troy Davis, a Black man who is scheduled to be executed just twelve days from now in Georgia, “even though his serious claims of innocence have never been heard in court.

Amnesty International USA says, “The case against him consisted entirely of witness testimony which contained inconsistencies even during the trial,” and Amnesty urgest us to write automated letters online to the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles. They provide a sample letter. The European Parliament says, there is abundant proof of his innocence, material evidence against him has never been produced and seven witnesses for the prosecution have retracted their testimony.
