Good Fucking Riddance! Although, they'll probably be back by the end of the week. http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2013/09/12/decades-long-white-house-peace-vigil-ends/ 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.
