ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Thousands of protesters in Sydney on Saturday (January 21) joined the first of hundreds of womens' marches organised around the world in a show of disapproval of U.S. President Donald Trump as he began his first day in office. In Sydney, Australia's biggest city, about 3,000 people - both men and women, gathered for a rally in Hyde Park before marching to the U.S. consulate downtown. Earlier about 2,000 people marched peacefully in four cities in New Zealand, Wellington's march organiser Bette Flagler told Reuters by phone. Some 673 "sister marches" are planned worldwide for Saturday, in addition to a protest in Washington D.C., according to the organisers' website which says more than two million marchers are expected.
