Australia: Activists protest against PM 'missing in action' over NSW bushfires

Environmental activists marched in Sydney on Saturday, protesting against Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who they denounced for reportedly being on holidays while the state of New South Wales, where Sydney is located, is ravaged by bushfires. Footage shows the protesters marching on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, carrying banners and flags denouncing Morrison and calling for action against... Еще the bushfires and climate change. «We've got a prime minister who's missing in action and he is in denial when it comes to climate change. And since last week, we've seen additional drilling approved in the Great Australian Bight. This is a government owned by the fossil fuel industry and this crowd is saying they're sick of it,» said David Shoebridge, Greens MP. Morrison was pictured on holiday in Hawaii in recent days, as New South Wales has been ravaged by a catastrophic bushfire season, burning 3,700,000 hectares (9,142,899 acres) so far, destroying over 2,500 buildings and killing at least 12 people.
