7 Days

7 Days was launched in 1971, on the threshold of the decade. Its last issue, number twenty two, was published six months later, but in that period events symptomatic of the politics to come had occurred: the Derry massacre of Bloody Sunday; the occupations of the shipyards on the Clyde; the Mangrove trial; the IRA, UVF and Angry Brigade bombing campaigns, the latter used by the CID in an attempt to tarnish the reputation of women’s lib. The digitisation of 7 Days published here by the Amiel and Melburn Trust opens up a space for research and reflection on a still resonant moment in time and on the collective which came together to produce it and the spirit which animated it.
