Subject: Urgent Action Alert

 TROY DAVIS is scheduled to be executed by the state of Georgia on September
21, next Wednesday.
                                                                            
                                                                         The
re is a large body of evidence that casts sufficient doubt about his guilt
to have stirred many important organizations to advocate for clemency from
the Georgia Board of Pardons.  Seven of the original nine witnesses have
recanted their stories.  
 
IF YOU FEEL CALLED TO ADD YOUR VOICE TO THE GROWING CHORUS, NOW IS THE TIME
TO DO SO.  President Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Pope Benedict
XVI and many other notables have made a plea.  As of today, the state of
Georgia has declined to act on Troy's behalf.
 
The Georgia Parole Board will hear a clemency petition on September 19th. 
Actions we can take:
 
MAKE A TELEPHONE CALL (404.656.5651 <tel:%28404.656.5651> ),  OR email
(Webmaster at pap.state.ga.us <mailto:Webmaster at pap.state.ga.us> ), and fax
(404.651.8502 <tel:%28404.651.8502> ) the Board of Pardons and Paroles and
voice your support for Davis.
