This just came in from GRUS:
Thank you so much for supporting the efforts to stop the execution of Troy Davis. Following the 4-5,000 person march last Friday, here is an outline of what advocates have planned for this week. Please lend your support as you are able and share with your contacts:
MONDAY: 7:30am vigil outside “Sloppy” Floyd Building, 2 MLK Dr (GSU Marta station, cross street is Piedmont) The Pardons & Parole Board hearing begins at 9am. It is closed to the public and press. The decision may come down from the board as early as the late afternoon, though it is also possible they would issue it later in the evening or on Tuesday. The vigil will end when the decision is issued on Monday or TBD if it gets late Monday and a decision doesn’t appear to be in sight.
TUESDAY: If Clemency is granted or the execution is temporarily stayed, there will be a gathering of gratitude at a church in Atlanta (TBD) at 7pm. If Clemency is denied then Tuesday will be a “Day of Protest”: wear a black arm band, with “not in my name!” written on it. There will be a protest rally at the State Capitol.
WEDNESDAY: If clemency is denied this will be a “Day of Vigil” (wear black arm band) with a vigil in Jackson across from the prison at Towaliga County Line Baptist Church;153 Short Rd, Jackson, GA 30233. A vigil in Atlanta on the Capitol steps.
