Meet-up in Union Square (south side), Monday October 27th, 6.30-7.30pm

Georgia Death Row prisoner Troy Davis has a new execution date: Monday, Oct. 27, at 7:00 pm.

Evidence of Troy’s innocence exists – and has sparked outrage across the country and across the world. The movement around his case has led it  to be covered in outlets from the New York Times to CBS News.

Twice before — last year and last month — public outcry and the outrageous nature of Troy’s case have led his execution to be halted just hours  before it was set to take place.

And yet Georgia authorities refuse to heed calls to stop the execution, and seem determined to kill Troy on Monday. Please join supporters of Troy  Davis and opponents of capital punishment to make a public statement that the execution of Troy Davis is barbaric and unjust!
