Innocence Matters - Save Troy Davis Solidarity Rally in Oakland, 9/16/11: photos & audio

Troy Davis has been on death row in Georgia for twenty years. He is set to executed by the state on Wednesday, September 21st, despite the fact that there was no physical evidence presented against him during his trial and since then seven out of the nine "witnesses" who testified against him have recanted, many claiming that they were pressured by police. One of the two who has not recanted is suspected of being the true killer of the Savannah police officer for whose death Troy was wrongfully convicted. As the courts are no longer an option to establish Troy Davis' innocence, his last hope is the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles. Just one week since his execution date was announced, the NAACP has collected and delivered to the parole board 660,000 signatures calling for clemency for Troy Davis. On September 16th, supporters rallied outside of the Federal Building in Oakland in solidarity with others across the nation who are calling for Troy Davis to be freed. [Full audio below]
