Australian cities witnessed mass rallies on Saturday, in protest against the central government’s handling of the forest fires that have been going on there since last September.

Voice of America Radio – in its English language publication – said that about 30,000 people participated in a march in the city of Sydney alone, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Scott Morrison, accusing him of not dealing seriously with the phenomenon of global warming and its impact on Australian forest fires.

In a related development, the Australian Prime Minister appealed to citizens on Saturday to postpone the proposed marches in Melbourne so as not to place additional burdens on the police forces involved in suppressing forest fires, but the march organizers ignored this call and took to the streets, despite the heavy rains, crossing their feelings of anger and frustration with the handling of fires.
