What happened next in the DOLE-case?

Filed under: News,The Facts — admin @ 3:56 pm

BANANAS!* follows a legal case between Dole and banana workers from Nicaragua. The very case in the film was called Tellez vs DOLE. This case has been ongoing for many years. First the banana workers won, but in the appeals process Dole managed to turn it over.

Here we publish a text from Golden Gate University Environmental Law Journal. A very exciting and scary journey that exposes the short comings of the US court system. Our film premiered in 2009, this text was published in June 2014. For the banana workers this doesn’t mean anything. Most of the workers who suffered from the use of DBCP in the plantations are now all gone. Very sad story, indeed.
