This sangam which we began in 2007, became non-functional later due to various reasons. But we revived it in November 2013, during the padayatra from Trichy to Chennai, demanding rescue and rehabilitation of bonded labourers including the Puthirai vannars who are forced into compulsory caste based labour. Now about 45 men and women from 15 villages are members of the sangam. Five of its members have taken up the responsibility of collectively leading the sangam. Various issues of caste discrimination, land and other problems are being addressed.
Efforts are on to revive the sangam
