Activists protesting against Mitsibishi for what they say is the corporation's destruction of tropical rain forests handcuffed themselves to Mitsubishi cars Monday at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Five protesters locked themselves to Mitsubishi cars while others unfurled a banner from the top of Mitsubishi's display tower at the Convention Center.The demonstrators demanded that the president of Mitsubishi, Minoru Makihara, meet with leaders of the Rainforest Action Network.

The network says Mitsubishi is destroying rain forests in Malaysia and forests in British Columbia to make chopsticks.

No arrests were made.
