Well, you are right. They should indeed prove their commitment by protesting in India and China.
Having said that, they do live in liberal democratic societies and they are entitled to protest. Typically this is done with marches and placards.
In my city, they have been gluing themselves to roads in peak hour, chaining themselves to railway tracks and dangling from bridges. Naturally people doing these things get arrested for being dorks. The activists themselves expect to be arrested. That gets media attention. It is part of their direct action tactics.
What would happen if they glued themselves to roads in an Indian city during rush hour? They would probably just get run over and the police would have to use spatulas to clean up the mess. But it would get media attention, I am sure.
