Go Paint It On the Mountain

Then, go directly to jail :

CHAMONIX, France, June 6, 2007 (AFP) - French police on Tuesday arrested a Danish artist who planned to paint the peak of Mont Blanc red in a bid to raise awareness of environmental issues.

Marco Evaristti, 43, originally from Chile, was picked up by police after having used a
raspberry-based biodegradable dye based on the top of the famous Alpine peak.

Police spokesman Olivier Kim said the artist might be charged with damaging the environment on a listed site, namely Mont Blanc itself.
