Tell Gov. Perdue and the Georgia Pardons and Parole Board:

STOP THE EXECUTION! FREE TROY DAVIS!

Troy Davis is an African American on death row in Georgia. Davis was convicted in the 1989 killing of a police officer despite what Amnesty International calls „overwhelming doubts about his guilt.“ No physical forensic evidence was presented at Davis‘ trial, and 7 of the 9 witnesses have recanted their testimony, with at least two saying they were pressured by police to finger Davis as the killer. Yet on October 14, 2008 the Supreme Court refused to allow a new hearing in his case, and on April 16, 2009 the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to deny his appeal. TAKE ACTION NOW using the form below to let the Georgia Parole Board, Governor, Legislature, and congressional delegation as well as President Obama, U.N. Secretary-General Ban, Congressional leaders and members of the media know you demand No Execution of Troy Davis!

On May 19, from Alaska to West Virginia and from Argentina to Uganda, high school and college students, faith-based groups and progressive community organizations are organizing vigils, rallies and petition drives as well as the vital means of communication to bring worldwide pressure on Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue and the Pardons and Parole Board to stop the execution of Troy Anthony Davis.

Your messages will go to hundreds of public officials, including the Governor of Georgia, the entire Georgia legislature, each member of the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, the full Georgia Congressional delegation, as well as President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Congressional leaders, U.N. Secretary-General Ban, and national and local media representatives.

To fill in the online petition, go to:

The text of the message reads as follows (you will have the opportunity to edit it if you wish):

To: Governor Perdue, Georgia Pardons and Parole Board, Georgia Legislature, Georgia Congressional Delegation, President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Congressional Leaders, U.N. Secretary General Ban cc: members of the media

On April 16, 2009, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 to deny the appeal of Troy Davis, an innocent man on death row in Georgia. He was convicted solely on witness testimony, and 7 of the 9 witnesses have since recanted, many alleging that police coerced them into making false statements.

I join with millions in the US and around the world in demanding that you stop the execution of Troy Davis. Innocence matters to me. Justice matters to everyone.

I urge you to act now.

FBI fasst Terrorverdächtige in New York

…Nach Angaben der Staatsanwaltschaft hatte ein Informant des FBI die Gruppe bereits mit unbrauchbarem Sprengstoff versorgt und auch eine Raketenattrappe übergeben. Wie der New Yorker Kongressabgeordnete Peter King dem Fernsehsender CNN sagte, sollte der Anschlag am Mittwochabend stattfinden. Die Verdächtigen bezeichnete er als „hausgemachte Terroristen“ (…)
