The 3rd update for the week comes in on a Sunday evening. It’s taking me some time to get back into the flow of things but hopefully the pages are worth the wait. I’m quite proud of them myself.
It’s well known that most banana multi-nationals are scumbags (to put it lightly) and it’s even more well known after the documentary Bananas!*, that Dole tried to stop.
It documents the trial of Dole vs some poor Nicaraugan plantantion workers that became sterile after being exposed to the already banned pesticide DBCP. I’m angered! And the trial only took up cases of sterility (because it’s much easier to prove), nevermind the deaths and cancer that DBCP has caused. The facts are sickening and Dole has aggressively tried to silence this film and sue it’s makers. So yeah. Please buy only Fair Trade bananas. Thank you.
