Those committed to Mother Nature have been known to express their grievances with public happenings and large-scale art projects rather than anti-war style marches. We've compiled a slideshow with some of the best acts of civil disobedience committed in the name of the environment.

This Saturday over 4000 protests have been planed for the International Day of Climate Action. If you'll be attending one, send us your photos and video clips using the photo upload tool below and the video uploader at the bottom of the page.

Help us report on Saturday's day of climate action by uploading your photos. To add a picture, hit the participate button, provide a title and short description (when, where and who), upload the photo and press submit! The best submissions will be featured.

The mainstay of environmental activism, from Greenpeace to the Rainforest Action Network, has been the banner drop. A number of skilled climbers scale a building or monument and unfurl a message, sometimes larger than 100 feet in length.



In September of 2002, Greenpeace activists rappelled from the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro prior to the World Summit on Sustainable Development, or Rio 10, in Johannesburg. The banner reads: 'Rio 10 = Second Chance.'
