Factual Mistake
Mamani recalls that the land the mine is located was Bolivian and was taken by Chile in 1881. He references the War of the Pacific (1879-1884), between Chile and an alliance between Peru and Bolivia. However, in common discussions about this subject, Chileans and Bolivians would reference the year 1879, when it began, instead of 1881.
