Today, tens of thousands of spectators will cheer the competitors at Atlanta’s Olympic Stadium. Though, just 40 miles away from Olympic Stadium, more than 100 men sit on Death Row in a Georgia prison.

With the eyes of the world on Atlanta, a city promoting itself as the embodiment of Olympic ideas of human liberty and equality, next week Amnesty International will issue their newest report, entitled: The Death Penalty in Georgia: Racist, Arbitrary and Unfair.
