Mourning the Presidency: A Mock Funeral for President's Day

Rise and Resist and Gays Against Guns NYC put together a protest this past weekend in the style of a New Orleans funeral, complete with jazz band and coffin symbolizing the death of the American presidency as we know it (and calling for its resurrection). Rousing speeches and hymns led by GAG Reflex kicked off our march to Union Square. It was a joy to participate alongside so many seasoned activists with such a compelling creative vision for resistance. Plus I got to take a selfie with Abe Lincoln! More photos and reporting here.
