Although, they'll probably be back by the end of the week.

Decades-Long White House Peace Vigil Ends

For decades, anti-nuclear protester Concepcion “Connie” Picciotto has led a nonstop peace vigil outside the White House. But Thursday morning, her camp was gone.

Ms. Picciotto had camped in a makeshift hut in Lafayette Park since the 1980s. Ms. Picciotto, originally from Spain, was known for advocating for peace to tourists who would listen, and she has been called the president’s closest neighbor. In recent years, she had been assisted by protesters tied to the Occupy movement, according to a recent Washington Post profile.
A spokesman for the U.S. Park Police wasn’t immediately available to comment. Officials are allowed to remove unmonitored encampments.
The patch of bricks where her structure once stood was visibly dusty on Thursday morning. Only a few cigarette butts, wrappers and broken binder clip remained.

The Washington Post profile of Ms. Picciotto earlier this year said that her shelter was a plastic sheet draped over a patio umbrella and held together with binder clips. The article, which published in May and said she was 77 years old, said that her health has suffered since she was hit by a taxi cab.

she was fucked up anyway from all those years sleeping in that makeshift hut, pretty much hunchbacked and had a ton of issues. She used to wear a bike helmet with a lot of tin foil underneath. she was batshit crazy.

The protest was fine how it was but once the one guy who was there Thomas died a few years back the protest slowly spiraled out of control. With Connies health declining they needed people to man the protest. When the Occupy fools came to DC, they ended up being recruited to man the protest and they started all kinds of crazy protests which ruined the main message of the original protest.

They were pretty much grandfathered to where they didn't need a permit to protest or any permits for the permanent structure they had. All they needed was someone there at all times to man it. If it was found to be uninhabited then it could be declared abandoned and then be removed. Many times it was found abandoned and they were given the opportunity to have someone come and man it. The Occupy people fucked that up. They had unreliable people who would sit there and when their relief wouldn't show up they would be like fuck it I'm out and then leave.

It'll probably be back up at the end of the week after their lawyers fight it.

And stop with the "protest" shit. She's not an activist, she's a fucking bum.

I remember seeing that filthy bum when I vacationed in DC.

They should've pulled her out from under that taxi cab and tossed her into a dumpster.

she's far from a bum. She is actually compensated quite well. They had a nice house in DC (even though now it is falling apart) and they are supported by many people in DC

the protest was "smoke and mirrors". They sat there for like 12 hour shifts (which eventually went to 8 hour shifts) and went to a cozy house. All they had to do was sit on their ass for a few hours and really do nothing. But when it was freezing or raining they were out there when most people would've been like "fuck it".

She's a bum. Lack of money, does not a bum make.

Trust me, I agree with you. As someone who patrolled that area for 9 1/2 years I am very familiar with them. All I'm saying is don't be fooled by the whole "we're dedicated to the cause" and "we're sacrificing" bullshit

I don't blame the useless filthy bum as much as I do the people who facilitate and finance her filthy bummery.

Do not feed the rats, people... it only encourages them to breed more vermin.
