On Thursday morning, U.S. Park Police removed the signs and shelter belonging to Concepcion Picciotto, who has been holding a continuous vigil across the street from the White House for 32 years. She needs no permit because the site is constantly attended, but someone holding the spot overnight Wednesday left, telling an officer their relief hadn't shown up, so the officer collected the unattended materials, Park Police said. But you don't sit within view of the White House for three decades without making some connections. Washington's congressional delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton helped Picciotto retrieve her stuff, and she was back protesting by 3 p.m.
