  • Le Spiderman français avait escaladé deux fois ce même Cheung Kong Center dans le pass

Le fameux "Spiderman français " Alain Robert a escaladé dans la matinée du vendredi 16 août la tour Cheung Kong Center, à Hong Kong, pour y accrocher une banderole sur laquelle on peut voir les drapeaux hongkongais et chinois côte à côte au-dessus d'une poignée de main. Mais cela n'a pas empêché le grimpeur de 57 ans de gravir les 68 étages du Cheung Kong Center, un immeuble du quartier financier de Central.

Alain Robert est maintes fois venu à Hong Kong escalader ses immeubles, la ville comptant la concentration de gratte-ciel la plus élevée au monde.

Un appel à la paix spectaculaire, au milieu d'une semaine marquée par de nouveaux troubles et des affrontements toujours aussi violents entre les forces de l'ordre et des manifestants pro-démocratie, qui réclament la fin de l'ingérence du gouvernement chinois.

"Peut-être que ce que je fais peut baisser la température et peut-être faire sourire".

Le message n'a pas convaincu tout le monde. ", a tweeté le caricaturiste chinois Badiucao, dissident basé en Australie". La mobilisation, qui était née du rejet d'un projet de loi qui visait à autoriser les extraditions vers la Chine, a considérablement élargi ses revendications, demandant désormais notamment l'avènement du suffrage universel.

Ce mouvement constitue, pour les autorités hongkongaises et pour Pékin, le plus gros défi dans l'ex-colonie britannique depuis sa rétrocession en 1997.

Au cours de la montée, il a attaché une bannière représentant les drapeaux de Hong Kong et de la Chine, ainsi que deux mains tremblantes.

Alain Robert à Hong Kong. "C'est en tout cas ce que j'espère", a expliqué le Français, qui a déjà visité Hong Kong 15 fois, dans un communiqué publié avant l'escalade.
