Retiring archbishop says demonstrations should not involve violence and criticises Donald Trump
The archbishop of York has said he would join protests over the death of George Floyd but violence should not be part of the action.
John Sentamu, the most senior black leader in the Church of England, who retires on Sunday, said he was shielding at present, but added: “I certainly would want to join [the protests]. But at the moment it turns to violence, I wouldn’t be there because I don’t believe violence is the same as going out and protesting.
