By Payday men’s network
In 2008, Payday joined the movement to stop the killing of Troy Davis, an innocent man on death row for the 1989 murder of a police officer in Georgia, USA. No physical evidence linked him to the crime and 7 out of 9 non-police witnesses later changed their testimony, some citing police intimidation. His sister Martina led a campaign that gathered 700k signatures and international support including from the European Union. Troy was executed in 2011, but became a cause célèbre against the death penalty. See our appeal with Women of Colour Global Women’s Strike.
