Pink Hijab Day

Pink Hijab Day was founded in 2004 by Hend El Buri, a high school student at the time. It began small, in a high school in Columbia, MO. A group of girls decided to wear pink hijabs one day to encourage others to ask questions about their hijabs and about Islam. After more and more people began participating, the Susan G. Komen Foundation was contacted and Pink Hijab Day had its start. The girls felt that wearing pink might lessen the tension of how people view Muslim girls wearing the Hijab, or headscarf. The creators of this event hope that Pink Hijab Day will encourage people who are curious about women in Islam and hijab to ask questions to dispel misconceptions. They also promote taking preventative action against Breast Cancer and to donate to various Breast Cancer Foundations to find a cure.

The purpose of Pink Hijab Day is threefold:
Hijab – To encourage those who are curious about Muslim women and about hijab to ask Muslim women about what their hijab means
Society – To encourage Muslim women to participate in various community improvement projects because we are a valuable part of the fabric of the societies we live in. One of these projects is the effort to find a cure for breast cancer
Health – To raise funds for cancer research, and to encourage all people to maintain their health by getting regular screenings and to increase knowledge about preventative methods.

Pink Hijab Day was initiated in South Africa by 21yr old Humairah Jassat of Azaadville, 4 years ago. She had lost an aunt to cancer and after seeing a few women of her community also succumb to Cancer, she began researching breast cancer online. She then started Pink Hijab Day in South Africa. She got people across the country to don pink scarves and then donate to cancer survivors she regularly visits at government hospitals.
So help, Humairah Jassat by wearing a pink scarf in honour of Pink Hijab Day and then donate it to Jassat so she can give it to a cancer survivor.
Email her on humairahjassat@gmail.com for more information, and follow her on Twitter.

Walk for Freedom

Issued by the Palestine Solidarity Alliance – Durban
October 1 2012
Three Thousand Participate in Human Rights Fun Walk
About three thousand people expressed their solidarity with victims of human rights abuses around the world by participating in a fun walk held in Durban this weekend.
Organised by a diverse range of volunteers comprising community stalwarts, professionals, religious and cultural groupings, businessmen, academics and students working together under the banner of the Palestine Solidarity Alliance – Durban, the Palestine Walk for Freedom was officially started by eThekwini Mayor Mr James Nxumalo.
The main objective of the organisers was to highlight the situation in Palestine, said Aslam Mayat of the PSA – Durban.  “The objective of the walk was to create awareness about the injustices in South Africa, and around the world, but in Palestine in particular,” he explained.

Mayat said that “(We wanted) to get the ordinary SA folk out of their comfort zone and support other people and Palestinians in particular. I think this was achieved to a large degree. The collateral objective was to get the rainbow nation in all its diversity together to demonstrate our collective ubuntu. Organisations as diverse as Diakonia Churches, Gandhi Development Trust, Solidarity Group for Peace and Justice in Sri Lanka, South African Relief Agency, Right2Know, Hindu Maha Sabha and many others all actively participated or officially supported.”

Women, men and children from diverse backgrounds participated in the walk, most of them clad in t-shirts bearing Palestinian freedom slogans. 

“The atmosphere was great – there was a real sense of solidarity with everyone coming together,” said one woman, who walked with eleven members of her family.  “Our kids loved it, they were all dressed in support of Palestine.”
After the walk, several activists addressed the crowd in the stadium, encouraging them to give the Palestinian cause their full support. Included in the line-up were MEC for Health in KZN Dr Dhlomo, Maulana Rafik Sha of the Democratic Alliance, Muhammed Desai, coordinator of the Boycott Divestments and Sanctions Movement of South Africa (BDS-SA) and hip hop artiste Iain EWOK Robinson “I think it was a very large scale successful event that I believe went a very long way to ensuring that Durban is on the map as a space for true civil society action, where we can expect issues of human rights and solidarity to find a solid platform,” said Robinson.
Mayat said that most people who participated in the walk – which was part of a countrywide initiative with other walks taking place in 9 centres -  had suggested that it be an annual event. “I think all those who did come were immensely impressed and called for annual encores". This sentiment was endorsed by Ethekweni Speaker Mr Logie Naidoo, who said it ought to become a permanent fixture on the Durban calendar.
