What is One Black Malaysia

One Black Malaysia or simply, 1BackMalaysia is a campaign slogan for the wear-black call as '1BlackMalaysia: Democracy first, elections now', a play (a parody) on Mr Najib's '1Malaysia: People first, performance now' tagline. It was introduced by activist Wong Chin Huat. The 1BlackMalaysia campaign was to be a peaceful, yet powerful message of 'civil disobedience'. Wong Chin Huat has since been arrested for wearing black under the Malaysia Sedition Act.

Wong however, did urged the public to 'paint every state, territory, town and village black with clothes, headbands, hats, turbans, veils, armbands, ribbons and stickers'. 'Let us be united in one black colour and let's show the world that the 1Malaysia under Najib is 1BlackMalaysia living in darkness,' he said.

Below was the SMS call for 1BlackMalaysia (received by most PR members in West Malaysia).

May 7. Wear black. Show Najib 1BLACKMALAYSIA. Say no to umno’s plot to occupy perak legislature after occupying perak state government. Let everyone WEAR black on May 7. 1BLACKMALAYSIA
