- An organization called 40 Days of Life has been holding an anti-abortion vigil in Parc Lahaie (corner st. laurent and st. joseph), outside the Morgentaler Clinic, since March 8th. They will continue to be there every day until April 17th. In response, pro-choice citizens of Montreal have been maintaining a presence in the park to show their support for the doctors and nurses who work at the clinic, as well as the women who use it. We encourage everyone who values women’s reproductive autonomy to come to the park to show support and resist the intimidation tactics of this right-wing religious group. Come around noon, stay as long as you like. Or organize your own affinity group and go whenever you want – the pro-lifers are there from 7 AM to 7 PM every day. There is a facebook page called “prochoice support” if people want to be in touch.
- Celebrate the 50th anniversary of human space flight! Yuri’s Night is named in honour of Yuri Gagarin, the first human in space, who orbited Earth on April 12, 1961.
- For its 4th edition of Yuri’s Night we are turning a Montreal loft into a spaceport. Dance to space-inspired music, sip on space-inspired drinks, and ponder the possibility of travel to other planets.
- Space-inspired costumes are encouraged. We award two prizes for Best Costume during Yuri’s Night. If accessorizing is not your forte, check out our “Intergalactic Visa Application Booth” at the event, where you can don wigs and face paint to better assimilate with the local species of your destination planet. You can also have your photo taken there for your Intergalactic Travel Visa.
