Activist group Sleeping Giants targets Alan Jones advertisers

The barrier draw was today held in confidence by Racing NSW stewards and the results will be kept private until they are beamed onto the Opera House sails.

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.

Herron was appointed CEO of the Sydney Opera House in 2012, having previously been a lawyer and corporate adviser, and was chair of Sydney's Belvoir Street Theatre for 10 years.

Protesters have shone torch beams on the Sydney Opera House sails to try and obscure projections of The Everest horse race.

Protesters booed and chanted "turn it off" as the barrier draw results were revealed.

Insane Clown Posse Member Tries to Dropkick Fred Durst Onstage
It is rumored that Shaggy 2 Dope was arrested for the attempted assault, but not further details are available at this time. I guess Fred Durst was a mega superstar and egoed out on them hard like wouldn't look at them or anything while he talked.

The forecourt and surrounding areas of the Opera House were packed with onlookers and people looking to make a stand against the use of the building to promote race colours, barrier draw numbers and The Everest Trophy for the lucrative event.

This afternoon the Heritage Council of New South Wales delivered a damning letter directly to the Premier expressing its "extreme disappointment" with her decision to allow the advertising to go ahead.

Mr Quint said the legal exemptions allowing projection onto the sails made clear that they must be "non-commercial occasions of brief duration". 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. Jones' response to Herron arguing the Opera House is "not a billboard" was: "Who said? Call Alan" onto the famous building.

State and federal politicians have weighed in on the stoush, including Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who believed the promotion of the event was a "no-brainer".

Satirical group The Chaser posted a video of the prank on Tuesday morning where they can also be seen shining the message, which was accompanied by Alan Jones' purported mobile number, onto NSW Parliament House and the NSW Art Gallery.
