Troy Davis Hearing – Follow the Amnesty blog

Troy Davis has spent nearly 19 years on death row in the US for a crime he maintains he did not commit. In that time, seven of the nine key witnesses on whose evidence he was convicted have recanted or changed their testimony. Troy finally has the chance to present this new evidence – which could prove his innocence – to a court in Savannah. Stand in solidarity with Troy during his hearing, and send a message to Georgia that the world is watching and justice must be served.
