Crowds of mourners were seen gathered near the US Supreme Court building in Washington DC, mourning the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had served on the court since 1993, Saturday.
Elizabeth Warren, US Senator from Massachusetts was seen addressing the crowds and reminding about Ginsburg's last statement dictated to her granddaughter Clara Spera, which was: «My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.»
«I will fight» chanted Warren along with the crowds, calling for people to fight for this Ginsburg's wish to be fulfilled.
Justice Ginsburg was the first Jewish woman to hold the position, and her death coincided with the eve of Rosh Hashanah, a holiday that commemorates the Jewish New Year. Ginsburg died at her home in Washington DC of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer, at age 87, on September 18.
