Tacneñas Women and the Flag procession,

The women of Tacna, Peru remember every year what they experienced during the War with Chile (1879-1883), the 50 years of captivity under the Chilean government after losing the Pacific War and which they recovered in the Plebiscite of 1929. The three Tacna women who appear in the video share with us the example of love for the country, courage and peaceful resistance, which their mothers and teachers transmitted to them and celebrate with the so-called Flag Procession.
