On 22 June 2020, management fired the editor-in-chief of Index, Szabolcs Dull. Two days later, precisely a year ago, the vast majority of Index's staff handed in their resignations after pleas to reinstate Dull fell on deaf ears. In this video, our current and former colleagues talk about those final days and the tremendous support from our readers that enabled us to keep doing our jobs at Telex and other news sites.
