Bananas!*


Bananas!* is a suspenseful court room drama that examines the intricacies and injustices of the global politics of food.

Focusing on a landmark and highly controversial legal case pitting a dozen Nicaraguan banana plantation workers against Dole Food Corporation, Bananas!* uncovers the alleged usage of a banned pesticide and its probable link to generations of sterilized workers.

Central to both the film and case is Juan “Accidentes” Dominguez, a Los Angeles-based personal injury attorney who, although iconic within the Latino community for his ubiquitous billboard ads, is unquestionably facing the biggest case and challenge of his career.

At stake in the classic David vs. Goliath story are the futures of generations of workers and their families, as well as the culture of global, multinational business. If successful, the case could rock the economic foundations of Dole, and would open the US courts to other global victims, representing a new day in international justice.

Hillel Rabin spent 56 days in #military #prison for refusing to serve in the #IDF. Now she opens up about her time behind bars, conversations with her fellow inmates, and talking to young Israelis about the #occupation.
Article: ‘Refusing to serve in the army is my small act of making change’




Excerpts:
I said that I was not willing to take part in any way in a system whose very essence is based on #fighting and #violent #oppression. I believe that this needs to change, and this is my way to make #change. This is my small act. I added that I have been vegetarian my entire life, buy second-hand clothing, and am against exploitation, capitalism, and sexism.

I oppose the #occupation because it is #violent, #oppressive, and #racist.

I didn’t fight with anyone in #jail. It was practice for my ego, for my ability to have a conversation, for my ability to be socially flexible. To be in a position in which people #disagree with me and in which I feel uncomfortable — almost threatened — but to be okay with that.
