Video: The Fight, in Baltimore, to Save Troy Davis


By BillyClub - Posted on 22 September 2011

Human Rights activists, in Baltimore, MD, staged demonstrations on September 16th, 20th and 21st of September 2011, in support of Troy Davis. He was then on Death Row in a state of Georgia prison. Despite considerable doubt about his guilt, and the former head of the FBI, William S. Sessions, among others, urging a stay, Mr. Davis was executed by lethal ejection at 10:40 PM, on September 21st. An Eleventh-Hour request for a stay to the US Supreme Court was denied. To learn more, go to: AmnestyInternationalUSATroyDavis. To work to "Abolish the Death Penalty" in the U.S., see: NCADP.
