Roundtable Discussion on Transport Bill
Speaking on behalf of the Get Glasgow Moving campaign, Harrison makes the case for publicly-owned buses and for a properly regulated and integrated public transport network, at the Rural Economy & Connectivity Committee’s Roundtable Discussion on the Transport Bill at the Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh.
The Glasgow Effect
Harrison was invited by the Scottish Artists Union to speak via Skype to the Cross-Party Group on Culture at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh on 1 March 2016. She screened The Glasgow Effect by Wee D before discussing his arguments in relation to wider debates about arts funding, economic policy and social change.
Say No to Tesco
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.
