An Australian woman has taken the remains of her home to the country's parliament, calling for action on climate change.
The bushfire victim, Melinda Plesman, has placed the ruins of her home she had lived in for the last 30 years, outside the parliament building.
She lost her house after a bushfire ravaged the town of Grafton in New South Wales last month.
On one piece of corrugated metal, Melinda etched a message to Australian prime minister Scott Morrison: "Morrison, your climate crisis destroyed my home."
When asked about a link between the fires and climate change last month, Prime Minister Scott Morrison refused to be drawn on the subject, saying, "My only thoughts today are with those who have lost their lives, and their families."
Melinda, speaking to ABC News, said, "I lost my house, I lost my way of life. My whole community has. And while that was happening, the PM said that he didn't want us to talk about climate change, that this wasn't the time."
When Morrison said he was praying for the victims, she got really upset and angry because the people need a lot more than that, Melinda added.
She also criticised the opposition Labor Party and said there needed to be a bipartisan response to bushfires.
The bushfires are still continuing, reports BBC.
On Monday, Australia's capital Sydney was covered in a thick haze as strong winds carried smoke from the west into the centre of the city.
The Bureau of Meteorology said spring 2019 has been the fifth warmest spring on record. Two million hectares of land in New South Wales have been burnt since July.
Officials warn that the worst of Australia's bushfire season is still to come.
