“Spider-Man” climbs 179-meter-tall tower to deliver “message of peace” (Photos)


Sports adventurer Alain Robert, known as the “French Spider-Man”, climbed the “Copol Total Tower”, the headquarters of the “Total Energy” company in the La Défense neighborhood in western Paris. A “message of peace” a month after the start of war between Israel and Hamas.

Dressed in a yellow jacket, red pants and climbing shoes, Alain Robert ventured up the 179-meter Total Tower in front of passers-by in this financial district. Hauts-de-Seine prefecture said local authorities had arrested the man who had climbed down from the tower.
“He was taken into police custody on charges of endangering the lives of others, which was later dropped by the public prosecution,” the governorate said in the afternoon, explaining that police later released Alain Robert.
Through this ascension, Alain Robert explained that he wanted to send a “message of peace” so that “the top leaders of the whole world can sit down, come together and do something to resolve this conflict between Palestine and Israel.”
“When I was climbing, I was thinking about the people in Palestine and the people in Israel who are being bombed,” Alain Robert said shortly after descending from the majestic skyscraper. He described what is currently happening in the Gaza Strip as genocide.
Alain Robert, 61, regularly delivers political news during his building-climbing adventures. He has done about a hundred activities, including climbing the Burj Khalifa (828 meters) in Dubai or the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and his name is included in the Guinness Book of World Records.
