This is not something brand new for the word but it is the first time it is done in Athens: BASE Jump from Apollo tower in Riancour street. The video ignited multiple reactions and comments about the legitimacy of this action coming from a number of prudent citizens who demand that the jumper gets arrested and punished; claiming reasons of safety and security. WWT wants to comment that BASE jump, like any other urban sport, such as parkour, skate or bmx offers new readings of the urban landscape, breaks the borders of regular and organized urban behaviour and as such it bears risk (mainly for the doer) but also responsibility .Unfortunately prudent citizens assume that everybody except them is irresponsible or perhaps they are green with envy for not having the guts to jump themselves!
