Not much difference with other demonstrations.
At best they're grasping for straws. I mean, really, those pictures with single plastic containers actually tell the exact opposite, namely that hardly anybody threw their waste on the street.

You should see what's left after the Streetparade!

The fundamental issue however remains:
Reducing our footprints means a severe reduction of standards of living. No longer a new iPhone every other year, new clothes with every other season, holiday trips across the globe, rooms heated to 22C, commuting 50-100km every day, one car or more per household, food transported across the globe, etc. Everybody agrees it would be a good thing, until it's their turn to action. NIMBY, effectively.
