Authorities have issued warnings over the announced rival far-right and pro-migrant groups preparing to descend on the coastal town on Saturday, Sept 5, 2020. Heavy police forces including horseback police are deployed in coastal town over the fears of violence against the refugees announced by far-right groups who are expected to assemble to demonstrate over migrant crossings. Dover MP Natalie Elphicke has urged people to stay away from the protests given the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic. British media reports say that on Friday, an activist group projected pro-immigrant messages onto the White Cliffs of Dover ahead of the protests saying 'Rise above fear. Refugees welcome'
