An Interesting Look at the Banana Industry

Juan "Accidentes" Dominguez is on his biggest case ever. On behalf of twelve Nicaraguan banana workers he is tackling Dole Food in a ground-breaking legal battle for their use of a banned pesticide that was known by the company to cause sterility.

The film was criticized by Dole for containing "patent falsehoods". Following an attempted lawsuit and attempt to block the film, the lawsuit never went through and the film was shown -- even debuting at the Swedish parliament! Further, an investigation of misconduct against Dominguez found nothing. Vindicated? I think so.

While this is not the great documentary about South American workers trying to win judgments from American companies, it is important to see the pattern and the slow, steady rise of social justice. Between this and "The Coca Cola Case", it makes for a good double feature on what can be done.
