Sydney Opera House Protest

According the The Guardian, there were hundreds. According to the ABC, there were just over a thousand. According to Fairfax, there were thousands. And according to both News Corp and Alan Jones, there were probably just a “handful”.

I don’t know exactly how many people attended tonight’s protest rally at the Sydney Opera House, but there were quite a few, concerned at both the process and the decision to allow the Opera House to allow the projection onto the sails of an advertisement for a forthcoming horse race.

Opera House Protest

Whatever you think of the dabate, it was a lovely spring night in Sydney, a perfect night for heading down to Sydney’s Circular Quay.

  1. Stop in from High Riser. Well I town doesn’t have much for political unrest, but I can think a few issue we should take to the street.
    If you have time stop in for a cup of coffee

    What a revolting creature Alan Jones is! And our spineless politicians no better!
