1988- Land to the First People & the Birth of AMS

Announcement Date: December 5, 1988

Once we began our work mobilising the community, the animators took to it like ducks to water and soon, “sangams “ started coming up in tribal villages all across Gudalur, often without any  intervention from us.

It was decided that we would stage a public demonstration, as a sign of our unity and strength and to present the government with a list of demands. Thus was held a massive demonstration on Dec 5th, 1988, in which 10, 000 Adivasis came together, at the end of which we launched Adivasi Munnetra Sangam (AMS).
