Below is an email from Ana Zamora from Death Penalty Focus, who created a petition at that is getting a lot of attention and may be of interest to you. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here.

Dear MoveOn member,

Troy Davis could be executed as soon as September 21, 2011, for a crime he did not commit. Davis is on death row in Georgia for the 1991 murder of police officer Mark MacPhail. However, since his conviction, seven of the nine witnesses who testified against him have recanted and no physical evidence links Davis to the crime.

No one should be executed when there are so many doubts about guilt. It is more important than ever that we continue to let Georgia authorities know that we oppose any effort to execute Troy Davis.

That’s why I created a petition to the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles on, which says:

We, the undersigned, call on Georgia authorities to take all steps necessary to ensure that Troy Anthony Davis is not executed. Seven of the nine witnesses have changed their story and no physical evidence links Davis to the crime. No one should be executed, especially when there are so many doubts about guilt.
