Those who reject global liberal hegemony and the values of Post-Modernity do have allies around the world, including organised movements, religions and even some states. So said Russian geo-political theorist and professor Alexander Dugin at a recent speaking engagement. We have an example in the news now of at least a partial state rejection of the death (literally so in this case) that Post-Modernity brings to us. Lama Hasan reports for ABC News:
A Dutch “abortion boat” bound for the Moroccan port of Smir has been blocked from entering the harbor. The campaign created by the Women on Waves group sails to countries where abortion is illegal and was due to arrive in the Moroccan port today to carry out abortions and provide advice to women, but the Moroccan authorities stopped them from docking, sealing the area and citing “military maneuvers” as the reason.
On Wednesday, Morocco’s health ministry told the AFP news agency that the ship would not be allowed to operate in the country and called on the authorities to apply the law against the group and the ship.
The group’s founder, Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, told the BBC they plan to launch “a surprise” in response but did not elaborate. She said the entire harbor was blocked and no one was being allowed to enter.
Dr. Gunilla Kleiverda, one of the gynecologists for Women on the Waves who is currently in Smir Harbor told ABC News, “of course, we always expect problems, that’s part of being involved with Women of the Waves,” adding that “the most important thing is to change the law and we make abortion legalized.”
