Archive of the Month: Haringey Solidarity Group (HSG)

Haringey Solidarity Group (HSG) started life as the Anti-Poll Tax group in Haringey. Once the Poll Tax was defeated most Anti-Poll Tax groups around the country split up. In Haringey they knew there were other issues just as important as the poll tax, so in 1991, they stayed together and changed our name to Haringey Solidarity Group (http://www.haringey.org.uk). HSG is a group of local people who feel things need changing and don’t have much faith in politicians and other “so called” leaders to do it for us. “Things will only get better for ordinary people when we decide what is best for us. It is not for some boss or so-called leader to decide what they think we need. We believe in doing things for ourselves wherever possible and we try to encourage others to do likewise. We also feel that when ordinary people fight back against the system (be that your boss, the local council or some multi-national company) they need to be supported”.
