The Savannah and Georgia Chambers of Commerce should pay close attention since they have many sister cities in Europe and the entire European Union is watching the case of Troy Anthony Davis and also looking to the United Nations to address the issues surrounding this case. Here are links to some of the European plans:

Action in Heidelberg


This evening around 6pm more than 400 death penalty opponents of all walks of life gathered in the German city of Heidelberg to demonstrate their support for US death row inmate Troy Anthony Davis. Together they occupied the widely known "Old Bridge" in the historic centre of the town to shape a human chain, holding Troy Davis’ face in front of their own faces or above their head.
The call for action came from the German-American Institute, the locally well-known group „Freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal“ and the student branch of Amnesty International.

The opening speech criticized the death penalty in general and drew the connection to individual cases like the one of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Kenneth Foster, and others. The speaker expressed deep concern for the serious situation of Mumia Abu-Jamal, too. He might receive a reinstation of the death sentence very soon and is in gereat danger yet again.

The focus of this action, though, was clearly on Troy Davis’ outrageous ordeal, and he was the one whose incredible situation had drawn the attention of pupils from eight school in Heidelberg, of students from many faculties, from peace activists, artists and just ordinary interested people.

The local press covered the event and will report it with big photos in the paper. The organizers as well as the attendants were very happy with what they felt was a huge success. They send their greetings to all other rallies and actions on this worldwide day of action to save Troy Davis.

THOUSANDS TURN OUT FOR THE GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION FOR TROY DAVIS!

Thousands of people across the country and around the world turned out in support of Troy Anthony Davis on May 19. Around 1,200 demonstrated in Atlanta, 300 to 400 in New York City, 400 in Germany (see report below) and hundreds in France, just to highlight a few places!
 
Troy has been on Georgia's death row for the past 17 years, professing his innocence.
Since his trial, evidence has surfaced that could prove his innocence, but the courts have not allowed a jury to hear these facts. Troy has faced down three execution dates and could soon face another. Public outcry has stopped each execution date.
 
We must keep up the pressure to win justice for Troy and to show why the death penalty needs to be abolished once and for all. You can download a fact sheet and petition on Troy by going to our Website at http://www.nodeathpenalty.org
 
-- REPORT FROM ATLANTA
By Desirae Johnson,  CEDP Atlanta
 
The stage was beautifully set for the May 19 Global Day of Action for Troy Davis; the sun was shining and a light breeze fluttered above us. The air permeated with a sense of purpose, excitement and hope as a collection of people gathered on the Georgia State Capitol steps to hear all of the wonderful speakers who represent a wide array of social groups, politicians and activist organizations.
 
The crowd was composed of 1,200 members of diverse individuals, ranging from infants through all spans of adulthood, while representing men and women, as well as, people from many different ethnic backgrounds. Some listened, others networked, and many held signs in support of Troy Davis to the oncoming traffic. The Campaign to End the Death Penalty had a good number of people in attendance; the Atlanta Chapter members sold 40 copies of the New Abolitionist and 32 "Free Troy Davis" buttons.
 
Overall, it was a powerful evening, while speakers called for more action to be taken by questioning our elected officials and marching on the Georgia State Capitol in protest of the death penalty. As far as the Atlanta CEDP is concerned, the fight is not over in Georgia, but the May 19 Global Day of Action for Troy Davis was a success.

There is a quote at the end from Larry Chisolm, Chatham County DA, who says he won't seek an execution date until all appeals are exhausted (the attorney general of the state could still act independently, but Chisolm's statement makes it harder politically for him to do that...)
