As the war in Vietnam escalates, so does the resistance to it in North America and Western Europe; in the United States black Americans are mobilizing in ever larger numbers both against domestic segregation and repression and foreign wars in which blacks are disproportionately represented in the US conscript army. Malcolm X has been assassinated in New York. An assassin's bullet is being prepared for Martin Luther King. 1965 is a crucial build-up year to the explosions that lie ahead.Tariq Ali is a writer and filmmaker. He has written more than two dozen books on world history and politics, and seven novels (translated into over a dozen languages) as well as scripts for the stage and screen. He is an editor of New Left Review and lives in London.

The 2015 Grace MacInnis Visiting Scholar Lecture explored the connections and challenges of grassroots political activism and how that translated into a Parliamentary environment that is slow, bureaucratic, and resistant to change.LIBBY DAVIES: 40 YEARS OF PROUD PUBLIC SERVICEPrior to running federally, Libby Davies first ran for Vancouver City Council in 1976 at the age of 23. She ran again in 1978. She was elected to the Vancouver Parks Board in 1980 and, in 1982, Davies was elected to Vancouver City Council. She was reelected in 1984, 1986, 1988, and 1990.

She and her late partner, Bruce Eriksen, were key figures in the formation of the Downtown Eastside Residents' Association (DERA) in 1973. In 10 years of community organizing, Libby developed her strong grassroots approach to working with people and diverse communities. She became involved in every community issue; from protecting community services to developing affordable housing, fighting for parks and working for the elimination of poverty. Since being elected as a Member of Parliament, Libby has provided a strong voice for Vancouver East.She has consistently raised issues of concern to her constituents in Parliament, including: community safety; adequate childcare; and post-secondary education. Libby has also been a tireless advocate in Parliament for a national housing program, and has successfully forced federal governments to address this basic human right. Libby's community office has helped hundreds of residents with federal government matters such as immigration, student loans, employment insurance, taxation, pensions, and Aboriginal affairs.
