Protesters, Everest light up Opera House

The Chaser project new ad onto Opera House as Jones apologises for Louise Herron interview

Barricades were installed in the forecourt, while water police patrolled the perimeter of the Opera House.

The draw for the race, being held at Royal Randwick this Saturday, was held in confidence by Racing NSW stewards and kept under wraps until the results were revealed as part of the light show. "Louise, who do you think you are?"

Protester Joshua Richardson, 19, said he had no problem with the Opera House being lit up in the "right context" but said this illumination was "horrible". "We have to fight to stop more of this appalling advertising".

"It's completely wrong to have one of our national landmarks is used as a billboard".

But the draw was conducted in private on Tuesday morning in order to avoid a security risk presented by the thousands of protesters who followed through with their promise to show up.

Two Israelis killed, third wounded, in West Bank shooting
Army spokesman Jonathan Conricus called it a "terrorist attack" but added that other unspecified factors were involved. A wave of Palestinian attacks against Israelis broke out in 2015, but they have since become sporadic.

The government sparked outrage by overturning the decision of Opera House management, which had rejected the promotion of the race on the grounds that it breached its guidelines.

Meantime, Jones still got his way, the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is still Jones' puppet and Louise Herron is now a role-model to all Australians for standing up to this politically motivated fuckwits. He cut her off immediately as she attempted to explain the heritage listing of the Opera House and then said he would be calling the Premier.

"It is the view of the Heritage Council that the use of the Opera House for the commercial advertising of this event is completely unsatisfactory and is an inappropriate use of this significant heritage place that is valued by many around the world", he said. Prime Minister Scott Morrison backed the decision, saying: "Why not put it on the biggest billboard Sydney has?"

The effect of the protesters' lights was varied.

Late last week, Jones, whose program in syndicated on 4BC in Brisbane, called up Herron live on air, telling her she should be "sacked", for her opposition to the promotion.
