In 2013, Harrison led the Say No to Tesco campaign, which began as a protest against the proliferation of small supermarkets in Glasgow and concluded in the group presenting a petition to the Scottish Parliament in 2014. Some of the campaign’s concerns were considered in the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill later in 2014, and in 2016, as part of The Glasgow Effect, Harrison helped found Glasgow Pound Working Group to explore possibilities for using a community currency to actively support Glasgow’s small businesses and build a stronger local economy.
