Troy Davis Video Project

October 9th is Troy Anthony Davis’ birthday and in celebration of this occasion we’re asking all of his supporters worldwide to send him a video birthday message and to post that message on YouTube.

The Troy video project is simple. Using a webcam, camera phone, camcorder or any other recording device, simply record a positive video of 60-seconds or less whishing Troy a ‘Happy Birthday’ while reaffirming to the state of Georgia that the global support network behind Troy believes innocence matters

As you know, serious doubts of Troy ’s guilt have been raised in recent months, and we want to take this occasion to let the world know that innocence indeed does matter!

With so many Troy supporters around the world, we want these messages to be lively and creative. Feel free to sing it, rap it, play it, draw it, dance it, paint it, shout it from the roof-tops. What you say or how you say it isn’t important. What’s important is that you just say it!

Please keep these messages positive and refrain from bad language and controversial statements that could be viewed as inflammatory. We don’t want to upset people - we just want to show the world that Troy has global support in his fight for justice.

After you’ve recorded this message – please post it on YouTube using this link: and email the video to:

Let’s not only give Troy a "Happy Birthday," let us also speak loud and clear in one voice that Innocence Matters!
