THURSDAY SEPT 22, 6PM
BRING SIGNS, BANNERS, AND BULLHORNS!
The whole world watched as the state of Georgia executed Troy Davis at 11:08pm on Wednesday despite an international protest movement. An innocent man has been lynched, and we must continue the fight.
This barbaric, sick racist, cruel system has been laid bare.
Please remember what Troy has said - the fight must continue until we tear down this rotten death penalty machine!
“The struggle for justice doesn’t end with me. This struggle is for all the Troy Davises who came before me and all the ones who will come after me. I’m in good spirits and I’m prayerful and at peace. But I will not stop fighting until I’ve taken my last breath. Georgia is prepared to snuff out the life of an innocent man.” - Troy Davis.
Troy fought until the end. His last words were to proclaim his innocence and to ask that God have mercy on the souls of those responsible for his execution.
The death penalty punishes the poor.
The death penalty condemns the innocent to die.
The death penalty is not a deterrent to violent crime.
The death penalty is "cruel and unusual punishment."
Fight Racism. End the Death Penalty. Join us in Copley on Thursday.
