Global Day of Action for Troy Davis, May 19

On April 16, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Troy Davis’ application for permission to file a new petition in Federal Court.  This denial cannot be appealed, but Davis’ stay of execution was extended an extra 30 days to allow him to file an “original” habeas corpus petition with the US Supreme Court.

So, Troy Davis’ stay of execution expires on May 16.

On Tuesday, May 19, groups in Georgia, the United States, and around the world, will be organizing for the Global Day of Action for Troy Davis.  These worldwide protests will demonstrate how widespread is the feeling that, given the steadfast refusal of federal courts to grant Davis a hearing on evidence that he might be innocent, an execution must not go forward in this case.

Even those who support the death penalty should admit that it would be a fundamental miscarriage of justice to allow an execution when doubts about guilt have been raised to this level, and no evidentiary hearing has been held to resolve those doubts.

To help prevent this injustice, get more information and register your event today!
