Question by Starbuck: Is fraud consistent with environmental activism?
Dole sues “Bananas!” filmmaker, alleges defamation
LOS ANGELES – Dole Foods has filed a defamation lawsuit against a Swedish filmmaker for insisting on showing his documentary “Bananas!” at the Los Angeles Film Festival after learning it was based on a fraud.
How many of the above cases are needed to bring to light the problem with these environmental activists? I have known many, allar, DDT, acid rain, the list goes on.
What will it take to expose these people for what they are?
Wednesday’s lawsuit seeks a preliminary injunction barring Fredrik Gertten from showing the film in public again. It accuses him of “actual malice” for ignoring a court ruling that the case on which the film was based had been part of a massive extortion plot against Dole by attorney Juan J. Dominguez, the star of the film.
“Bananas!” documents the alleged plight of Nicaraguan workers who say they were made sterile by a pesticide used at Dole banana plantations in the 1970s. The documentary was completed before the fraud was uncovered showing that the men were recruited by Dominguez to lie.

It’s possible that Dole has a case but it has yet to win. And that has nothing to do with alar, DDT, or acid rain.
