Hundreds march in Georgia to oppose Troy Davis execution
By David Beasley
(Reuters) – More than 2,000 activists chanting and toting banners joined a march and rally on Friday to oppose the execution of Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis, convicted of the 1989 murder of a Savannah police officer.
Georgia’s Board of Pardons and Paroles is slated to meet Monday to consider whether to stop Davis’ execution by lethal injection, which is scheduled for next Wednesday.
