Now is the time to abolish the death penalty in New Hampshire and the U.S.

Background: Troy Davis was convicted of murdering a Georgia police officer in 1991. Nearly two decades later, Davis remains on death row - even though the case against him has completely fallen apart.

On May 19, 2009, groups and individuals all around the world will be organizing demonstrations, vigils, teach-ins, or other public events to show the State of Georgia that the execution of Troy Davis would be an unacceptable travesty of justice.No physical evidence. No murder weapon. Another man implicated. No court willing to hear the new evidence.


The execution date of Troy Davis could be set at any time!
