Senator Bail Organa was the First Chairman and Viceroy of Alderaan, a hero of the Clone Wars, and the head of the Royal Family of Alderaan. An influential politician, he was a loyal Senator who commanded the ear of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine himself.
Though he grew to become a beloved leader on Alderaan, Bail Organa's ascent to that position was not without controversy. For a brief time before Organa inherited the Viceroy title, there was a dispute regarding the appropriate lineage of ascendancy.
Organa and his wife, Breha, Alderaan's Minister of Education, raised their adoptive daughter as if she were their biological child. Leia learned the nature of political life from her adoptive parents, as well as the codes and protocol of high court life from her aunts Rouge, Tia, and Celly. Bail's servants, such as Tarrik, took care not to spoil or pamper the Princess.
When Organa retired from the Senate, he returned to Alderaan. He reclaimed his title as Viceroy and First Chairman of Alderaan. There, he convinced his people to renounce the pacifism instated after the Clone Wars and quietly supported the rebellion during the early organization of Resistance movements into a unified Alliance to Restore the Republic. Preferring to stay on Alderaan, he sent a number of ministers, such as Hric Dahlney, to deal with Alliance contacts.
Breha was a member of the influential Alderaanian House of Antilles. She was considered Queen of Alderaan after her marriage to Prince Bail Organa.link

Well, he did yell "noooooooooo!!!!" and really what could he have done? Gotta know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run Doesn't make you a coward, just makes you smart Useless and foolish to lunge at clone troopers. A legislator like him fights with his voice. As they say, the pen is mightier than the sword!

As for the senate being disolved, in the timeline the senate had just been disolved by Palps so i see no reason for Senators to still be on Coruscant doing various things such as contemplating their next move or just packing up their things. :D
