Patrick Brinkmann (also spelled Patrik Brinkmann) is a 'Swedish-German millionaire businessman' who formerly (until 2011) led the anti-Islam Pro Berlin party and in 2011 was also international secretary of Pro Bürgerbewegung.
According to research carried out by British group Hope Not Hate in 2011, Brinkmann 'has sought to fund and establish an anti-Islamist party in Germany as part of a broader pan-European network of anti-Islamist, populist parties which would include ultra-nationalist elements in Israel'.
He founded a think tank called Continent Europe Foundation (KES) in 2004, with the reported aim 'to unify the European far-right'.
British group Hope Not Hate claims British counterjihad activist Ann Marchini connected Brinkmann with Canadian industrialist Bjorn Larsen, leading to the Geert Wilders rally in Berlin in Oct 2010.
Brinkmann reportedly donated 5 million Euros to Pro NRW in 2010.
