Join Amnesty International and death penalty opponents all over the world in supporting the Global Day of Action for Troy Davis on May 19th.
Troy Davis has been on death row for 18 years in the state of Georgia. He may be guilty but he might not be. Troy Davis faces execution for the murder of Police Officer Mark MacPhail in Georgia in 1989, despite a strong claim of innocence. In the last few years 7 out of the 9 witnesses have recanted or contradicted their testimony. One of the remaining 2 witnesses is the alternative suspect. There is a strong stench of police coercion in a number of the testimonies. No murder weapon was ever found and no physical evidence links Davis to the crime. None.
Go to the US Amnesty International website for information and to find out what you can do to help. We need to make sure that Troy Davis is given a fair hearing in line with the bare minimum of international standards around capital punishment. The death penalty is not remedial if we get it wrong.
