The Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole refused to grant clemency to Troy, but we can’t give up — or Troy will be murdered on Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET! Right now, call the Board at (404) 656-5651 to ask that they reconsider, and sign three new petitions to District Attorney Larry Chisolm, who can withdraw his death warrant (links are at the top of the story) and call the DA at (912) 652-7308. Please do it now. The power of the people can save and free Troy Davis!
Angela Davis writes: “I urgently appeal to Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal and to the members of the Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole to spare the life of Troy Davis, a young African American citizen of your state. I hope everyone within sight or sound of my words or my voice will likewise urgently call and fax Gov. Neal and the members of the board.” Stand strong on the Global Day of Solidarity for Troy Davis this Friday, Sept. 16, 4-6 p.m., Federal Building, 1301 Clay St., near 12th Street BART, Oakland. Five hundred events will be held around the world.
“I just think my mother died of a broken heart, but she made sure we were strong enough to deal with this,” said Martina Correia, Troy Davis' sister. “It’s not just the inmate who is on Death Row. That whole family is on Death Row.”
I am writing to ask you to help fight for Troy’s life. Troy Davis is on death row for the 1989 murder of police officer Mark MacPhail in Savannah, Ga. Troy has always maintained his innocence, and there was never any physical evidence linking him to the crime.
