A question about monuments

So, a few weeks ago there was a women’s march in Mexico City, and the protestors vandalized the angel of independence.

Coincidentally, immediately after the march, the government placed a fence around the monument, claiming that maintenance work due to damage in an earthquake 2 years ago was due. Blocking view of the most striking graffiti.


I don’t mind what they did, and while some celebrate it and some lament it; now the question is.... should we leave the angel vandalized? If so until when?

Lets remember Avenida de la Reforma is famous for its Anti-monuments
