LYNCH LAW JUSTICE ALIVE AND WELL IN THE USA Send a free fax right now to the Chatham County District Attorney:

I just sent a letter to the Chatham County District Attorney in Georgia to demand that the execution of Troy Davis be halted. Davis is scheduled to be executed this Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7pm ET.

More than 1 million people have signed a petition in support of Troy Davis. Demonstrations have taken place around the country and the world. Even the former director of the FBI has said that this execution is an injustice and should not go forward. Seven out of nine witnesses recanted. The real killer was named by three people.

Absolutely no physical evidence has been found that implicates Davis in the killing. No murder weapon has ever been found, exposing yet another major gap in the prosecution's case. This is the fourth time the state of Georgia has set an execution date for Davis, who was wrongly convicted of killing a police officer in 1989.

Of the nine witnesses, seven have recanted or altered their version of events. Five have signed statements saying they were coerced by police to testify against Davis, a common element of many racist "legal lynchings" targeting Black people. Three witnesses said that another man confessed to them that he killed the police officer.

Time is running out. Please take a moment to send a letter demanding justice for Troy Davis. A sample letter is provided for you--it only takes a couple of minutes.
