Do you care about internet freedom? On 14 August 2012, the Centre for Independent Journalism (CIJ) invites all netizens and online organisations to support Internet Blackout Day.

It’s the next big step for the Stop 114A campaign. Much like the U.S. Blackout to oppose the SOPA bill, this effort will focus on educating Malaysians about the negative impact of the new amendment.

We invite you to join us and upload a pop-up to your website on 14 August for 24 hours. Please refer to ourGet Involved page, where you can find all the campaign tools you’ll need to support and participate in the blackout.

We urge you to support internet freedom in our country. Please write to CIJ Malaysia at or call Masjaliza Hamzah at 03-4024 9840 for further assistance.

As of today, we have the following internet sites on board:

• Free Malaysia Today
• Malaysiakini
• Digital News Asia
• The Nut Graph
• Harakah Daily
• Keadilan Daily
• Nat Tan
• Niki Cheong
• myAsylum
• Kajian Politik untuk Perubahan (KPRU)
