What’s really going on?
We had this documentary called “Bananas”. It was about Nicaraguan workers putting a law-suit on Dole for being poisoned. They won the case. “Bananas” was about that.
But the director was about to face some problems. The Los Angeles film festival was put under pressure, according to this new documentary, and hardly dared to put “Bananas” on screen. The director not only got a law-suit from Dole, Swedish journalists were put under pressure too. It didn’t end with that. Swedish MPs, who were about to see the film, got letters. There were blog campaigns. A big machine started rolling.
This film is about that and it really is frightening viewing. The most interesting question is however if strong companies try to direct free speech. Is that were neo-liberal economics have lead us? We need to discuss it. Without somebody trying to prevent us.
Shows us how enslaved we have become!
This is a very important film. The point is not how it all (fortunately) ended but instead how afraid we are when big money attacks us. The law is obviously not on the side of the poor and free speech is not what we can count on as being the rule. Instead free speech has become the rare exception and a poor individual can just forget about getting his voice heard.
This film is about an exception, which was made possible because a giant corporation went too far too fast, so that even the dumbest amongst politicians understood that the line of the ridiculous had been crossed and, if they stuck together, there was no danger in fighting back against the corporation. However, usually they do not fight back – on the contrary, they are bought.
Even for the corporations this was an important test. Could they get away with it and if not, then why? They will be better prepared next time – be sure of it!
