DOVER

RALLY OF THE DAY: Watch The Highlights from the Saturday 5th September Protest in Dover, England

HUNDREDS of British protesters, demonstrating against the recent wave of small boat migration, clashed with police and blocked the A20 dual carriageway on Saturday in Dover. Several arrests were made.

The protesters were made up of a number of rival and mostly right-wing groups.

Protesters could be seen draped in Union Jacks, three lion imagery, and singing songs such as ‘Rule, Britannia ‘ while chanting “We want our country back.”

The protesters seemed to place a large amount of the blame on the police, who they accused of being traitors to those they should protect. “You, very seldom, investigate crimes, you’re more likely to solicit crimes. That’s what you are trying to do today, you are trying to, what they call, solicit a crime,” a protester with a megaphone shouted at the police.

The protests erupted after the words, “Rise above fear. Refugees welcome,” were beamed on the famous White Cliffs of Dover on Friday night.

The initiative was organised by the humanitarian charity known as Freedom From Torture. Protesters were bemoaning the fact that more than 1,450 migrants arrived in the UK, crossing the channel via small boats in August alone. This figure made it a national record for a single month.
