ACTIONS TODAY FOR TROY
Today is the International Day of Peace - as one organizer has said, it is intended to be a Day of Global Ceasefire and Nonviolence at ALL levels. Here in the U.S., there has long been a war on poor people and people of color carried out by those in power - from slavery, to lynching, to Jim Crow to today's prison industrial complex. Just as the title of the upcoming CEDP convention states "The Prison System is the New Jim Crow" - the death sentence is the simply the sharpest tool the INjustice system uses to oppress the poor and people of color.
The planned murder of Troy Davis in Georgia, Lawrence Brewer in Texas and all executions must be stopped! Here is what we know so far about actions for Troy today:
