The Georgia Board of Parsons and Parole announced this morning that it has denied the appeal for clemency for Troy Davis. He is scheduled to be executed Wednesday, September 21st, at 7pm eastern time (6pm central time).
But, even in light of this news, we must continue this fight to the end. One last chance lies with Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm, who originally petitioned the court for the death penalty, to petition the judge to withdraw the death warrant agains Troy Davis. Please Click Here to go to the NAACP page and sign the petition that will be delivered to D.A. Chisolm today, requesting that he withdraw the death warrant.
In addition, the Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression, along with other Troy Davis supporters, is planning a vigil/rally to save his life, Wednesday at 5pm, in the Daley Plaza in Chicago (Washington and Clark Streets). They also ask that you call Mr. Chisolm's office at 912-652-7308 or fax him at 912-652-7328, and to call the Board of Parsons and Parole offices at 404-656-5651, and continue to asks for clemency for Troy.
While his earthly hope lies with Mr. Chisolm, we also know that there is power in prayer. Please remain prayerful that justice will be done for Brother Davis, that his life will be spared now, and that eventually he will be given a new trial . . . a chance to once and for all prove his innocence.
Please keep up the fight!
