Slight Hope: Execution on Hold for Troy Davis

The joy after they heard
the good news

The anger @ 7pm in
downtown Amherst

 "The state of Georgia isn't proceeding with the execution until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on Davis' request for a stay. Davis' attorneys filed the request about an hour before Davis' scheduled 7 p.m. execution.

Davis' supporters, who had been chanting, are now letting out cheers as drivers pass and honk their horns. Otherwise, the mood is tense as they wait for a development, Lacey-Bordeaux reports."
In Amherst, MA, a large crowd of students, human rights activists rallied in downtown and forced traffic to slow and blocked the main road at 7pm, the time of the execution.

Ester and the tears of joy
