Sunday, March 21, 2010

The U.S. Supreme Court has ordered the federal district court in Savannah, GA, to hold a hearing on the evidence regarding Troy’s innocence, which is a significant victory for the ongoing grassroots campaign. This will be the first time a court has heard Troy's case for innocence, so this is HUGE!

Solidarity vigils are called for on the first day of Troy's hearing in federal court. Stay tuned and we will update people as soon as the date is announced. Please consider organizing a vigil in your community or at a federal building on this day!
