“Grassroots groups like Moja brought new hopeful, creative and inclusive ways of being Iraqi in a country traumatised by decades of authoritarianism, imperialist military occupation, sectarian war and the fragmentation of its territory.”Zahraa AliAuthor at OpenDemocracy
“"Café Moja is a small liberal island in the conservative Shiite pilgrimage town, in which almost everything else revolves around religion, in which there is hardly a woman who is not covered in black from head to toe."”Monika BolligerEditor at Republik
“"Moja carried out a project called: “From Najaf, a message to Mosel.” Over a three-day period, about 1,000 handwritten letters were gathered from ordinary people in Najaf,Cathy BreenAuthor at Countercurrents.org
they told the people not to lose hope"”
“Moja’s activities include “Christmas in Najaf,” a festival-like event in which Christmas trees are displayed in the main street of the city, a project Mekki said was initiated to make displaced Christian families from Mosul who settled in Najaf feel at home.”Doreen Abi RaadAuthor at Abouna.org
