Protest at Easter Island Airport

Easter Islanders demonstrate in favor of independence, shutting down the island's airport.

Easter Island Airport Protest: While doing research on Easter Island, I drove past the airport to discover that protesters were standing on the runway. I later learned that they were demonstrating in favor of independence from Chile, and had shut down the airport, the only viable route on or off the island, for the whole day.
