Detroit Vigil For Troy Davis at Hart Plaza, 4-6pm

Dear Friends, sorry I forgot to include the location of the Troy Davis, anti-death penalty protest tomorrow, Tuesday.

It's Hart Plaza. Thanks for catching that, Bill.

Peace, Mike

May 19, Tues, 4-6pm, TROY DAVIS VIGIL in HART PLAZA

PROTEST DEATH, join the global day of action to oppose the execution of Troy Davis and stand against capital punishment. Mr. Davis was convicted of killing a Georgia police officer without any physical evidence.

Since his trial 7 of 9 witnesses have recanted their coerced testimony, one of the remaining witnesses has been implicated as the actual murderer. Claiming procedural rules and time limits courts have denied appeals. And his stay expires on May 15 when another execution date will be sent.

Sign a letter to Georgia Gov Sonny Perdue to commute Troy’s death sentence: Amnesty International website http://www.amnestyusa.org/troydavis
