Far right and anti-fascist protesters clash in Dover
Dover is one of the places where far-right movements’ sympathizers and anti-fascist protesters happened to confront over last months. Last weekend, tensions grew as clashes caused several injuries when armed far-right protesters bypassed police lane to attack the anti-fascist demonstration.
According to the anti-racist organization Hope not Hate, Dover has been the scene of an ongoing standoff between the two groups, in a context where rightwing groups are led by a resurgent National Front.
Last sunday, the first confrontations started before the demonstrations when far-right and anti-racist protesters stopped at the same services, causing property damages on the anti-fascist group coaches.
Police reports mention that 20 weapons were seized during this day, including a lock-knife, knuckle duster, poles adapted to cause harm, pieces of wood, glass, hammers and bricks.
