Concepcion Picciotto, a homeless anti-war protester has died at age 80, after occupying an area outside the white house for over 30 years. Ms. Picciotto is a Spanish immigrant, who is known by many as "Connie" or "Conchita."

She began the longest running political protest in US history out front of the White House in 1981. Since then she has literally lived at the spot, spending 24 hours per day and 7 days a week at the vigil that she created.

The vigil showed a variety of anti-war and anti-nuclear slogans and had coordinated with local anti-war activists to provide information to passers-by.
