I know that many of us on here are members of Amnesty and if you are you will have already received the news that this evening Troy Davis will be executed in Georgia. It really does sadden me that justice does not seem to apply to everyone. Parole has been denied as well as any delay on the time.

The only hope left for this man is to email to parole board directly. 
Below are the email addresses of the parole board and the clemency information board to try and grant him clemency. Also a copy of the email written by Amnesty - although you can personalise this if you wish.
If you have a few moments to spare - please copy and paste this email.
Thank you

Dear Clemency Board members

 

I call on the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles to take all steps necessary to ensure that Troy Anthony Davis is not executed. 

 

 

 

You have voted to deny him clemency despite the fact that significant doubts continue to plague his conviction. You must reconsider and reverse this decision immediately. 

 

 

 

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. 

 

 

 

This case has generated widespread attention because so many people in Georgia and throughout the world are disturbed by the thought of a man being executed when so much doubt about his guilt remains unresolved. 

 

 

 

Nothing can undermine public faith in a criminal justice system faster than an execution when there are still serious doubts about guilt. 

 

 

 

Georgia cannot afford to make such a mistake, and I urge you to do everything in your power to prevent this injustice from taking place.

 

Yours sincerely,

Thanks for posting this Zhivvy. I already sent a message through Amnesty and another place as well but it can't hurt to send this email as well. What a shitty situation.

I just can't believe that this is being allowed to happen. A sad sad day. He has less than 3 hours to live now after being on death row for over 20 years. There is no evidence pointing to his guilt. Apparently he offered to do a lie detector today and was refused.

He has turned down the right for a last meal to spend time with his family instead.

This is a sickening incident of stupid politics, where they won't overturn it because it will make them look bad. An absolute disgusting example of lack of human rights. How can they be so injustice!?!?!

7:06 local time in Georgia and still no news - only this from CNN

Updated at 7:06 p.m.] Inside the grounds of the prison where Davis is scheduled to be executed, about 100 people, including Davis' sister, have formed a tight circle and are praying and singing, CNN's Gustavo Valdes reports.

Troy Davis' execution was delayed tonight as the Supreme Court weighed arguments by Davis' legal team and the state of Georgia over whether he deserves a stay.

 

At 7:05 p.m. tonight, five minutes after his scheduled death, Davis' supporters erupted in cheers, hugs and tears outside the jail in Jackson, Ga., as supporters believed Davis had been saved from the death penalty. But the Supreme Court only granted a temporary reprieve as it considers the decision.

 

The Supreme Court could decide at any time tonight or in the next seven days whether to go through with his execution.

 

Davis was convicted of the 1989 murder of Savannah cop Mark MacPhail, and had his execution stayed four times over the course of his 22-year stay on death row, but multiple legal appeals during that time failed to prove his innocence.

 

Public support grew for Davis based on the recanted testimony of seven witnesses from his trial and the possible confession of another suspect, which his defense team claims cast too much doubt on Davis' guilt to follow through with an execution.
