What was the biggest environmental protest ever?

    Quoting from another answer I wrote: March 2, 2009 was the largest U.S. protest against climate change yet.  Approximately 12,000 people went to Washington, D.C. to demand that the government reduce national greenhouse gas emissions.  2,500 were at the gates of Capitol Power Plant, a coal-burning plant that is owned by Congress and provides heat and cool water to the Capitol building and other buildings in the complex.

    Now, as for the biggest protest ever, that’s hard to say if this was it.  350.org says that October 24, 2009 was “the most widespread day of political action in the planet’s history.”  According to the website, 5200 events were organized in 181 countries.  There aren’t numbers on how many people attended, but it probably was much larger than the March 2nd protest in D.C.  Still, it depends on whether you count that as one protest or not.
