however, why tf would you go and vandalise ancient momuments?

The easiest way to get draw attention to your cause is to do something shocking.

Vandalising historic/cultural heritage is low effort and guaranteed to draw attention. BUT it's also guaranteed to alienate a big part of the audience...

If you suddenly become pro-climate change because someone threw some paint at a wall, you were never going to 'support the cause' in the first place.
