  • George Floyd murder Black protestor carries wounded white man to safety at London demonstration

London's first rally, among hundreds that have taken place across North America, was sparked by the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man from Minneapolis who died May 25 after white police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes, the death captured on a witness's cellphone video.

Then he saw the man who had uttered them - a black protester emerging from the melee carrying an injured white man in a "fireman's lift" over his shoulder.

A number of peaceful anti-racism protests took place in London and other cities across the United Kingdom on Saturday.

"I saw a skirmish and someone falling to the ground", Martinez recalled of the moment near Waterloo Bridge, in central London, as he covered anti-racism protests that have flared up in the city.

Personal trainer Patrick Hutchinson says he wasn't even meant to be there until his friends changed his mind.

But groups including some far-right activists also congregated in the capital, and more than 100 people were arrested after violence broke out and police were attacked.

However, Reuters was not able to identify the victim or his political leanings.

There were scuffles earlier in the day in the United Kingdom capital, where far-right groups had traveled, saying they wanted to "defend" statues and memorials. On his social media account, he wrote: "We saved a life today". The image of Hutchinson carrying him quickly spread around the world. Hutchinson did not reply to calls to his mobile phone.

"It's not black versus white, it's everyone versus the racists", Hutchinson said in a separate interview with Channel 4.

Mr Noah said: "You know what would have happened, people would say "black boys killed a white man" - it was just going to be worse".

He said people were still trying to hit the man as they were leaving the scene. His life was under threat.

"Amid all the ugliness, a handsome moment of humanity", wrote British journalist Piers Morgan in a Tweet accompanying the photograph.

Hutchinson attended the protests Saturday because "history was in the making", he said, and it was a "no brainer" to support the cause.

In Paris, riot police fired tear gas to disperse a largely peaceful but unauthorised protest against police brutality and racism.

"They took over the whole of the bridge", he said. "There was a traffic jam going from south to north, but the vibe was good - cars were honking and people were celebrating".

Authorities also fenced off other statues in Parliament Square, including memorials to Nelson Mandela and Abraham Lincoln.
