The Banana Massacre

This is an excerpt from the movie Banana Land: Blood, Bullets and Poison. This animation explains that the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita) and the U.S. State Department supported the mass killing of innocent people trying to organize for better working conditions. The massacre occurred in Ciénaga, Colombia on December 6, 1928.
