Dear All, 

In a fantastic collaboration between AI and the indie rock group, State
Radio, we have produced an animated web video on the Troy Davis case that
can be viewed at: 


We'd be deeply grateful, if you could the following: 

1) Watch the video 

2) Disseminate it as WIDELY as possible to other groups, friends, and
family; link it to any social networking sites you may belong to; GET IT OUT

3) Take action and ask Governor Perdue to demonstrate leadership and prevent
this miscarriage of justice 

Attached, please also find a press release that accompanied the rollout of
this video. Currently, we are working out details for State Radio's possible
involvement in this year's Annual General Meeting, taking place March 27-29
in Boston. We will have more information on the AGM section of the website (
<http://www.aiusa.org/agm> www.aiusa.org/agm) as things get confirmed. 

We are anxiously awaiting the court's response to the latest round of
arguments in Troy's case that could be handed down at any moment.  So the
fate of Troy Davis is still very much in limbo. We need you to continue
rallying support by spreading this video of Troy's story any way that you

In solidarity,
