Also known as "Conchita", this firecracker and peace activist from Vigo, Spain has been holding her peace camps in Lafayette Square across from the White House for many years.  Concepción has been involved in politics from quite a young age beginning with the Spanish Consulate upon her immigration to the United States at the age of 18.  She is well-known for protesting nuclear weapons, as well as carrying out the longest act of political protest in the U.S. What a visionary!
