We can not let Dole stop BANANAS!
Jean-Christophe Juilliard, CEO / Directeur Général Europe de Dole
David DeLorenzo, President and CEO, Dole Food Company, Inc.
”The fruit company Dole has initiated a legal process against the Swedish journalist and film maker Fredrik Gertten and his company WG Film. The case is based on his documentary movie Bananas! where Gertten describes the legal process in a case where a group of workers accuse Dole for having used the toxic substance DBCP on its production areas in Nicaragua.
Dole wants to stop BANANAS!* from showing in cinemas and TV. They want to block the Gerttens website and give the director a life time muzzle talking about the movie and the fruit company.
We are worried by Dole´s behaviour which put in danger freedom of expression. A major company should respect the freedom of speech and the independence of journalists.”
