On 13th June 2020, Patrick and his friends were compelled to intervene in an incident which would subsequently change the course of their lives and captivate and inspire huge numbers of people around the world.
During the peaceful Black Lives Matter protests of June 2020 that followed the murder of George Floyd, a group of far right counter-protesters came to London hurling hateful comments and aggression towards the Black Lives Matter protesters.
During the incident one far right counter-protester was left stranded and slumped over on the ground, his condition deteriorating very quickly.
Patrick intervened, picked him up and carried him to safety, an action that has been captured in an award-winning, instantly-recognisable image that has made impact around the world. This was an act of basic humanity that saved a life, which propelled Patrick to the national and international stage.
Today, Patrick is a published author with his book ‘Everyone Versus Racism - A letter to my children’ which was released in Nov 2020 and has become an Amazon best seller.
He also continues his work with young people as a founding member of UTCAI.
