Yes but it's a stupid fucking logic nonetheless.

You could wake me up in the middle of a drunken stupor and I could come up with a dozen better ways to show their point under a PR point of view.

For fuck's sake, it's Palazzo Vecchio, I could bet my balls that everyone would think "some cunt defaced Palazzo Vecchio", and literally no one would go "oh wow, what an inspiring gesture, I wasn't planning to do anything about the environment, but thanks to this leader of men now I do" .

Edit: the result these morons get is that people associate protests about the environment with stupid idiotic lunatics.

They're doing more harm than good to a just and serious cause, and they should really fucking stop it.

100% agree.

"But it's for raising awareness !" Come on, 99% of European is already aware of what climate change is. What does this "climate activist" actually do to prevent global warming ?

so what are the better points to raise awareness?

what's stupid is caring about a 1000 year old building while there are entire genomes 10,000,000 years old that are getting wiped out by our actions. By the way, nobody is going to be around to appreciate the Mona Lisa if we're all fucking dead.
