Wednesday, April 17, Jost Foundation Room, UVM Davis Center, 7-9 pm. Join us for a free screening of Banana Land, a documentary exposing the truths of the banana industry in Latin America. Bananas have been promoted as wholesome and healthy, but behind the smiling Miss Chiquita propaganda lies a past and present system of terrorism, worker exploitation, biological disasters, and environmental damage. After learning about the oppressive banana industry, we will discuss new perspectives and action steps. Let’s question WHY the U.S. has an entire day dedicated to bananas on National Banana Day 2019. FREE.
