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

The movement was initiated by Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR), a student-run organization at Concordia University, located in the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Montreal, Canada.

According to the event’s Facebook page, anyone can be part of the movement by wearing the Palestinian Keffiyeh in order to show solidarity with the Palestinian struggle and Palestinians’ right to self-determination, justice and dignity, and right of return.
