Here is what the hunger games salute means:

“It is an old and rarely used gesture … occasionally seen at funerals. It means thanks, it means admiration, it means good-bye to someone you love.”

Since they do not love Marcos and Du30, so it means they are saying good-bye to themselves.

And the metaphor of the funeral really affirms their necro-political orientation.

And for those unfamiliar with the meaning of the salute, the political optics is not pretty as one can easily be reminded of fascist acts associated with Hitler and Pol Pot.

Whoever thought of this act deserves to be fired.
