Sixty journalists from Hungary’s top independent news website have quit over the ousting of their editor-in-chief. Thousands of protesters marched to Viktor Orban’s residence at the subsequent press freedom rally.

The three leading editors of the Hungarian news website Index quit their jobs on Friday, along with more than 60 other editorial staff. 

Index is seen as one of the last major independent news websites in Hungary, and leading critic of PM Viktor Orban’s government. Later on Friday, thousands of protesters marched from the editorial office of Index to the official residence of Prime Minister Viktor Orban in Buda Castle, calling for more press freedom. Participants shouted “Democracy!” and “We have had enough!” at the Budapest rally.
