Pro-refugee and counter-protests scheduled in Dover for September 5; avoid demonstrations as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 9/3/2020, 12:00 AM until 9/6/2020, 9:00 AM (Europe/London). COUNTRY/REGION Dover

Event

A solidarity protest in support of refugees and asylum-seekers is scheduled to take place in Dover on Saturday, September 5, with reports stating that far-right activists are planning counter-protests on the same day at the Port of Dover. The pro-refugee demonstration is expected to begin at 11:00 (local time) in Market Square. No timings have yet been provided for the counter-protest, however, some reports suggest that the protesters may intend to block some roads located around the port.

A heightened police presence is likely at both of the above protests, and scuffles between the two groups of protesters cannot be ruled out.

Advice

Those in Dover are advised to monitor developments and anticipate localized disruptions from the event, particularly those transiting through the Port of Dover.
