The Evil Banana Conglomerate


If Joseph Conrad's novel, 'Heart of Darkness,' had been about a  banana corporation that company would be Chiquita. They've been accused of mistreating workers, violently putting down labour unrest, feeding corruption in Latin America, and using their ships to bring cocaine into the United States. In 2007 they were fined $25 million for their support of Colombian death squads. http://www.portfolio.com/news-markets/international-news/portfolio/2007/09/17/Chiquita-Death-Squads/

Now, as a move to appear 'ethical' to the American consumer, they've come out against Alberta's oil. They'll phase out shipping their banana's using our oil in favour of getting it from OPEC. Contact Chiquita via Facebook or Twitter to tell them you'll boycott them! http://twitter.com/#!/Chiquita and https://www.facebook.com/Chiquita Who needs their death bananas anyway?
