At a political demonstration in Hanga Roa, marchers carry the red and white Rapa Nui flag. They were supporting a move for independence from Chile which annexed Easter Island in 1888.
Rapa Nui were granted Chilean citizenship and in 2007, the island gained the constitutional status of "special territory." marchers carry the red-and-white Rapanui flag.
