World Keffiyeh Day

On this day wherever you are, wear your Keffiyeh - show your support for Palestine - Remember the Nakba day.


World Keffiyeh Day is a global movement initiated by Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR), a student-run organisation at Concordia University, located in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Montreal, Canada. 

World Keffiyeh Day (May 11th) is to be commemorated on an annual basis in conjunction with Nakba Day (15 May), in order to show solidarity with the Palestinian cause and struggle.

Why wear a Keffiyeh?

* To show solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and Palestinians’ right to self-determination, justice and dignity
* To raise awareness about the Palestinian cause and Palestinians’ right of return.

Be part of the global movement by:

* Spreading the word to raise awareness
* Wearing your Keffiyeh on the May 11th
