Congrats to everyone graduating this week!
For those who are around, there is an important rally in Union Square today at 6pm for Troy Davis, an innocent man on Georgia’s death row. Because of activism and the overwhelming evidence in his favor, this past fall Troy won a stay of execution – but is now facing another possible execution date. Join us for an international day of action!
RALLY FOR TROY DAVIS!
TUESDAY, MAY 19TH 6PM -8PM
UNION SQUARE, NYC (Middle of the Park)
(14th St btw. Broadway & Park Ave. South)
Troy Davis is on death row in Georgia even though the case against him has completely fallen apart. 7 out of 9 witnesses have recanted or contradicted their testimony, no murder weapon was found and no physical evidence links Davis to the crime.
Troy Davis’ stay of execution just expired and he could then be executed at any time. On May 19, people all around the world will be organizing events to show the state of Georgia that the execution of Troy Davis would be an unacceptable travesty of justice.
We need you to be as visible and as loud as possible to stop the execution! Join us on May 19th to raise awareness to stop the execution of an innocent man!
7 OUT OF 9 WITNESSES HAVE RECANTED THEIR TESTIMONIES. NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE. NO MURDER WEAPON. NO COURT WILLING TO HEAR THE NEW EVIDENCE. EXECUTION DATE COULD BE SET SOON!
