Dear Friends and Fellow Partners in Change,
Namaste and welcome to the REXperience 2014-15. For the past one decade the founder volunteers of iCONGO, REX, Karmaveer have been driving change with simple ideas for action like The Joy of Giving, Individual Social Responsibility and Public Private PEOPLE Partnerships. These are ideas which have become huge movements today and were all popularized at your REX CONCLiVE. REX was formerly named the RIGHT every WRONG CONCLAVE and is the foremost wisdom and culturetainment forum that inspires and rekindles our moJOsh to be the change.
First launched in 2006, we are now into our 9th year and over the past few years we have created huge wisdom to address several social, human and societal issues. The ideas discussed at our REX forum have led to action for educational reforms, climate change, accessibility, humane capitalism, dignity for people living with HIV, etc. In 2008, we began the idea for action of electoral reforms for the betterment of our governance and political system with 2 former Chief Election Commissioners Mr. James Michael Lyngdoh and Mr. Krishnamurthy as our patrons. This journey of 4 years led to a policy document on electoral reforms created with electoral reforms experts from across the globe and several ideas from the document are now being implemented phase wise after we handed the document to CEC Mr. S. Y Quraishi in early 2012. In 2008, we are also proud that the entire fight against corruption was led by us in partnership with the UN, much before the India against Corruption campaign. The only difference being, we did our work silently and did not come out on the streets or create media hype, since we adhered to a ethical process of leading change slowly but surely and the struggle continues.
For years now we have popularized and encouraged simple ideas and celebrated 26/11 as the Citizen Action Day, worked with citizens, children and youth to clean the streets of India with brooms, to help them understand the need for every citizen to fulfill our fundamental duties in order to enjoy our fundamental rights. Today with several volunteers, Rex Karmaveer Global fellows and people from all sectors and walks of life, we triggered and inspired the Swachh Bharat Mission through our Keeda Hai Kya to clean India campaignwhich was seeded at the last REX CONCLiVE! Yes change is ONLY possible when citizens get together to clean up the mess. So let’s keep cleaning up the mess in our country.
We also promoted www.iDishoom.com the first citizen reporting and whistle blowing news & views portal and announced www.HallaBolo.com on the international anti-corruption Day at a UN organized program in 2011, to provide weaponry for citizens to fight corruption every day. In 2011 our founder volunteers were also involved as the main strategists for the Reclaim People Power Campaign in Goa to rid public office of thieves, thugs and criminals who were elected to the office. This successful campaign is now being adapted in several other states. We are also told by our mentors Dr. Rakesh Kumar and Mr. James Michael Lyngdoh, who have been involved with the Aam Aadmi party. They told us affectionately that “People follow AAP and AAP follows RIGHT every WRONG” based on their learning about how AAP has been adopting some of our ideas, right from launching the part on 26/11 2012 to using the broom as a symbol to emulating public grievances systems using principles of HallaBolo.
The RIGHT every WRONG Conclave, now called “REX CONCLiVE”, has inspired cutting edge ideas for action every year. In 2012 , the ONE BILLION RISING global campaign to address crimes against women was first announced at REX. REX has always maintained highest levels of austerity and simplicity. As we move into our 10th year, we have a vision of creating the biggest wisdom and culturetainment forum in the world on principles of austerity, simplicity and credibility by always keeping the forum free of any unethical funding. REX shall always be a forum where everyone can speak their mind and share genuine thoughts and truths without any censorship. We look forward to all your support as we move towards our Vision for REX-2016. It is a pleasure and honour having all of you as a part of our REX, Karmaveer and iCONGO family. Together as ONE we can RIGHT every WRONG.
Jai Hind and Warm regards
Jeroninio Almeida
