Join Amnesty International and demand that the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles reconsider its decision to deny Troy Davis clemency and demand that Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm [pictured right] seek a withdrawal of Davis’s death warrant and support clemency himself.”

Troy Davis’s execution is scheduled for tomorrow, so please demand action from Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles and Chatham County District Attorney Larry Chisolm now.

Details on today’s ruling from The New York Times:

Troy Davis, whose death row case ignited an international campaign to save his life, has lost what appeared to be his last attempt to avoid death by lethal injection on Wednesday.

Rejecting pleas by Mr. Davis’s lawyers that shaky witness testimony and a lack of physical evidence presented enough doubt about his guilt to spare him death, the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles ruled on Tuesday morning that Mr. Davis, 42, should die for killing Mark MacPhail, an off-duty police officer, in a Savannah parking lot in 1989…

Lawyers for Mr. Davis on Monday laid out a case of mistaken identity. Information was presented from several witnesses who said they had been pressured by the police and changed their testimony, although others stood by their original testimony.

Another witness implicated the man who first identified Mr. Davis as another gunman to the police.

    I am so sorry to the victim and the alleged perpetrators families. I’ve only just read things and am so sorry if 2 innocent men lost their lives and a guilty person still breathes.
