Spanish term or phrase: denuncias públicas o legales contra actuaciones
This is taken from an environmental publication which explains what action is taken when the environment is damaged or put at risk.
Sandra
English translation:(ti take) publiv and legal action against...
Explanation:
(to take) public or legal action in repect of the (environmentally damaging)behaviour/activity.

'denunciar' is most effectively described as above, whether public ir legal. 'to report (to the police)' is used nore on a personal level*. To 'condems' implied more 'making public' without necessaarily implying legal action.

Unlike the previous contributors, I interpret 'actuaciones' as the environmentally damaging actions/behaviour.

Depending on your context, you may simply use 'actions', environmentally damaging actions, etc.

Explanation:
My, it seems we have a mix of "incorrect" answers here. Sorry colleagues, I hope you don't find this offensive. It isn't meant to be taken that way.

Anyway, this is what I interpret:
the "actuaciones" are the events, acts etc. that are deemed illegal or running against the law.
"Denuncias" can be read as "reports, accusations" in the legal sense or "complaints, reports" in the public sense.

Therefore, this should read:
"Legal accusations or public complaints against the activities, events."

I hope this helps clarify things for you.
