Animal exporters are challenging Thanet Council's attempts to suspend the export of live animals in the courts next week, it's believed.
Campanies Onderwater, Lomas and Peter Z have called for an injunction to force Thanet Council to reopen the port for live exports until a full judicial review.
Kent Action Against Live Exports and other groups say they are urging campaigners and residents to express their anger - and support the council in their fight to permanently ban the trade.
