Peaceful vigil outside the Russian consulate

The Burgundy Lion pub is organizing Goal: Lion’s Cup Soccer Tournament, an annual fundraising event, for Aug. 18. All proceeds go to charity, so make sure you buy your raffle tickets early.

Attend a reading of Leah Esau’s script Waterfront: The Blessing with Jonathan Silver and David Sklar acting and Esau herself reading the stage directions. Résonance Café (5175A Parc), 7 p.m., free

See a screening of Maximum Tolerated Dose, a documentary about animal experimentation. And if you’re hungry before/after or during that, a meal is available—vegan, natch. (This is the first of two Open the Cages events.) 185 Van Horne, 8–11 p.m.

Around this time last year, there was a demo outside the Russian consulate in support of jailed activist punk band Pussy Riot. Well tonight, Fierté Montreal invites everyone to that site for a peaceful vigil in response to Russia’s outrageous anti-gay policies. 3655 du Musée, 8:30–9:30 p.m.
