Outside of Dianne Feinstein’s office at 1 Post st. in San Francisco, "Indivisible SF" staged a funeral for "politics as usual." Members of the demonstration wore black, adorned funeral veils and brought flowers to lay into the casket. Accompanying the event was Saint Gabriel's Celestial Brass Band, a New Orleans style jazz band.
The procession began just after noon, pallbearers lifted the casket and staged while the band played on behind them. The demonstration marched around the perimeter of the McKesson Corporation building, then returning to McKesson Plaza for eulogies. The site of carrying a casket around the city definitely drew attention of crowds, something that is somewhat shocking to see even by San Francisco standards.
After arriving back at the plaza, the band played Taps and audience members took a moment of silence. Speakers voiced their frustration with the politics of Dianne Feinstein and urged her to take further action against president Donald Trump's actions, opening the mic up to anybody after the key speakers finished.
An invitation to pay respect to the "dead politics" was extended, signing the funeral guest book which would be delivered to Dianne Feinstein herself following the event and laying flowers into the casket. One gentleman comically sobbed and mourned as he neared the coffin and placed his flowers inside. This was surely a unique way to voice opinions that has more impact than the traditional sea of people waving around picket signs and screaming on bullhorns.
