Hacktivists attack European Climate Exchange Website

On Friday, July 23 at 23:23 UTC, the public website of the European Climate Exchange (ECX), the leading marketplace for trading CO2 emissions in Europe, has been targetted by hacktivists of the autonomous tech collective *decocidio* (#?).

In a public act of digital direct action, the ECX website was taken offline and replaced with a message in an effort to try to raise awareness about carbon trading as a dangerous false solution to the climate crisis, in support of the grassroots activists aiming to oppose the power structures and companies profiteering from the dysfunctional Cap & Trade scheme.
