A Banana Land Film Screening & Panel Discussion marking the 90th Anniversary of the Banana Massacre will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 4 p.m. in Kierstead Hall, 103.

For consumers, bananas are a delicious and nutritious start to to the day, a healthy snack and a fixture in our fruit bowls. For millions of residents in the banana lands, the production of bananas means social upheaval, violence and pesticide poisoning. Banana Land explores the origins of these disparate realities, and opens the conversation on how workers, producers and consumers can address this disconnect.

The film showing will be followed by a panel discussion, with treats.

Presented by the International Development Studies Student Association, STU and UNB faculty members and members of the Colombian community in Fredericton.
