The state of Georgia has set Troy Davis's execution date for midnight on September 21st, just eight days from today.

Troy Davis is on death row for the 1989 murder of a police officer in Savannah, GA. He has always maintained his innocence, and there was never any physical evidence linking him to the crime.

Seven out of the nine non-police witnesses have since recanted or changed their testimony, some citing police intimidation. A judge labeled his own ruling as "not ironclad" and the original prosecutor has voiced reservations about Davis's guilt. New witnesses have come forth identifying another suspect.

Despite this, the state of Georgia has signed his 4th death warrant.

Martina’s appeal for clemency

From Amnesty International:  The Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles will hold a clemency hearing for Troy Davis on Monday, September 19, two days before he is scheduled to be executed at 7 pm on September 21. They have denied him this request in previous hearings. During the days leading up to this hearing we should declare our Solidarity with Troy.  In Atlanta there will be a big September 16 march and rally at Ebeneezer Baptist Church.  Organize events in your own community for that day.

Troy Davis is scheduled to be executed on September 21st  


The day is now here - the state of Georgia has set Troy Davis' execution date for September 21st, just two weeks from today.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear his final appeal earlier this year. But the story remains the same - Troy Davis could very well be innocent.

However, in the state of Georgia, the Board of Pardons & Paroles holds the keys to Troy's fate. In the days before Davis' execution, this Board will hold a final clemency hearing - a final chance to prevent Troy Davis from being executed.

Davis was convicted on the basis of witness testimony - seven of the nine original witnesses have since recanted or changed their testimony.

One witness said in a CNN news interview "If I knew then, what I know now, Troy Davis would not be on death row."

I know it's difficult to believe that a system of justice could be so terribly flawed, but keep in mind that Troy has survived three previous execution dates, because people like you kept the justice system in check!

We've been bracing for this moment and the time for action is now! Here's what you can do to join the fight:
  1. Sign our petition to the Board of Pardons & Paroles urging them to grant clemency! We'll deliver your signatures next week.
  2. Organize locally for Troy: Take to the streets with us. Soon we'll be announcing the date for the official Troy Davis Day of Action. Sign up now to rally in the coming days to stop the execution of Troy Davis.
  3. Tell everyone you know! Spread the word about this injustice on Twitter by using the hashtag #TooMuchDoubt. Be sure to tell your Facebook friends Troy's story too!

Thank you for fighting for Troy,

Stop the execution

An execution date for Troy Davis has been set, but an execution is NOT inevitable.
