Background: A hearse..mock `coffins'..and sombrely dressed mourners were filmed by VISNEWS in a `carnival mourning parade' through the streets of Huissen, Holland, Feb 1.
Flags flew at half mast as the 'mourners' passed in their not so glum procession.
The town council have withdrawn their usual annual subsidy for Huissen's Carnival Parade..thus causing its death..a week before the start of Holland's Carnival season.
