Troy Davis

So yesterday was one of the most depressing nights in a while. Yesterday millions were watching Georgia as they tortured an innocent man and his family for four hours. Troy Davis who was murdered yesterday even though all the evidence used in order to indict him has turned out to be very doubtful. I’m not going to write a long post about it, there are many people out there who have written and are writing much more eloquently about it. I just wanted to say that yesterday felt like 2006 and 2008 when we watched helplessly as israel was murdering innocent people in Lebanon and Gaza. I know that this is only one man while more than a million died in iraq hundreds of thousands died in Afghanistan and thousands died in Lebanon and Palestine. However, this just felt very much like a huge deal. Twitter was on fire. Democracy Now had one of the best coverages I’ve ever seen. Now all we have is to hope that this will do something. We have to hope that people organise and are able to do something to stop this terrible tragic practice. Anyway, I must go to work now. I am thinking of the family and friends of Troy Davis. Stay safe everyone. Love you bye.
