An execution is NOT inevitable. This merely sets the clemency process in motion. Before Sept. 21, the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles will rule on whether Troy Davis’ sentence should be commuted, or whether the execution should be carried out as scheduled. Previously, the Board stated that it would not allow an execution unless there was “no doubt” as to guilt.
Amnesty International will call an International Day of Solidarity for Troy Davis once we know a little bit more about the plans of the Parole Board. Get started – organize for Troy now, and please check back here or at justicefortroy.org for further updates.
Troy Davis was convicted of murder in 1991. Nearly two decades later, Davis remains on death row — even though the case against him has fallen apart. Learn more about Troy’s case.
