Sojourner's Place

update: global blogging day of action for troy davis  

Posted by SjP in ,

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! As many Sojourners are already aware, May 19 has been designated by Amnesty Intentional as a Global Day of Action for Troy Davis. Bloggers are encouraged to participate in this call to action by writing a post on the 19th to let the State of Georgia know that the whole world is now watching as Troy's stay of execution runs out on May 15th.

If you have not done so already, there is still time to join the growing list of bloggers planning to attend the
Global Blogging Day of Action for Troy Davis. This is an official event for the entire blogosphere which has been registered at Amnesty International. I hope you will decide to participate by leaving a comment on this blog. You can also sign-up on my Facebook page.

Characterized by Amnesty International as an "unacceptable travesty of justice" if in fact Troy's execution proceeds is mild when compared to the scathing dissent of the Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court, Leah Ward Sears:

If recantation testimony, either alone or supported by other evidence, shows convincingly that prior trial testimony was false, it simply defies logic and morality to hold that it must be disregarded categorically. A judge should consider the new evidence.
I hope you will add your blog or Facebook page for the May 19 Global Blogging Day of Action for Troy Davis. Every voice is needed to help stop the execution of a man who may very well be innocent.

The following bloggers and Facebookers have all answered the call:

African American Political Pundit – AAPP aka LN Rock
AfroSpear Think Tank - Asabagna Alatentou
Christina C. Marus - Facebook
Conversations with Marva - Ms. Marvalus
Eddie Griffin (BGSA) – Eddie Griffin
Electronic Village – Wayne Hicks
