ANTI shark cull campaigners plastered the Premier’s “palace” with dozens of images at a secret silent protest in West Perth last night.

Around a dozen photos and messages against the State Government’s new shark control policy were projected on to the walls of Colin Barnett’s office as well as Parliament House to promote a rally being held this weekend.

The pictures of the clandestine rendezvous were then posted on to Facebook as part of a guerilla marketing campaign by the organisers.

More than 5000 people are expected to attend the event at Cottesloe Beach this Saturday which is being held to protest against the State Government’s decision.

Under the catch and kill strategy, 72 baited drum lines will be deployed at eight locations in WA and professional fisherman will be employed to hunt and shoot any shark over three metres and deemed a threat that swims into designated kill zones.

One of the protest’s organisers Luke Dickenson told PerthNow the group wanted to do something a bit “different” as well as promote the event this weekend.

He also said since the photos were posted online, they had received quite a lot of positive feedback.

Meanwhile, WA’s first shark barrier, which has been officially operating for a week, has had no reports of animals being trapped so far. The 300m underwater fence is being trialled at Coogee Beach.
