The Open the Cages international activist tour -- comprised of animal activism, film screenings, and music events -- will stop in Reno this Saturday and Sunday July 21-22, 2012.
The tour is focused on the plight of animals in laboratories. It will show the new documentary "Maximum Tolerated Dose," the first feature-length film by director Karol Orzechowski. He and members of the production team will introduce and field questions about the film.
There will also be a music performance by folk artist Mike XvX and noisy hip-hop artist Garbageface, as well as local bands. In addition, there will be a protest at Reno's Charles River Laboratories, which is reported to do drug testing on dogs and monkeys.
