On April 16th Troy Davis, who was convicted of murdering a Georgia police officer in 1991, lost his latest appeal for a new trial and his stay of execution expires on May 15th, 2009. For a background on his case see here.

Amnesty International is calling for a Global Day of Action for Troy on May 19, 2009. In keeping with this theme, Sojourner’s Place is calling for a Global Blogging Day of Action for Troy Davis. This is a registered event at Amnesty International and you can also sign-up on her Facebook page.  

This is a worthwhile event concerning life and death, so I encourage you to take the time to participate on May 19th!
