TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

NATIONAL MEDIA COVERAGE OF THIS EVENT NEEDS TO INCLUDE A MASS TURNOUT OF ALL PEOPLE OF CONSCIENCE IN THE BAY AREA. TAKE THE DAY OFF, OR TAKE A LATE LUNCH HOUR, BUT BE THERE. If you're taking BART, get off at the EMBARCADERO STATION.

But RIGHT NOW, log in those last minute calls to Georgia Attorney General Larry Chisolm, info below, and SIGN THE PETITION:


Georgia's State Board of Pardons and Paroles has recently rejected Troy Davis' clemency petition. Davis continues to face execution on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 at 7 pm EDT.

We demand that the Board reconsider its decision and demand that Chatham County (Savannah) District Attorney Larry Chisolm seek a withdrawal of the death warrant and support clemency himself.

Troy Davis was convicted on the basis of witness testimony – seven of the nine original witnesses have since recanted or changed their testimony. He has survived three previous execution dates, because people like you kept the justice system in check! Let Georgia authorities know you oppose the death penalty for Troy Davis!

NOTE: Due to high volume of supporters, please keep trying to sign this petition,

if your initial attempt does not succeed. Or try contacting the Chatham County's District Attorney's office by phone/fax: Telephone: 912-652-7308 Fax: 912-652-7328.
