List of Troy Davis Vigils in U.S. Today (AI)

 Please keep checking the link at the bottom of this post for updates.




Today is a “Day of Vigil.” We encourage you to make it known that you will not passively accept Georgia’s planned killing of Troy Davis at 7pm. Wear a black armband and write “Not in my name!” on it. Tell people about Troy Davis and why we must abolish the death penalty.

If we have not managed to stop the execution by 6pm, gather with others in vigils at the following locations:
