Canadians are boycotting them back!

The ad will play on radio stations across Canada next week:

Why not re-write the famous “I’m a Chiquita banana/ and I’m here to say…” jingle, in the comments over at EthicalOil.org or at your site?

The jokes and photoshops write themselves🙂

PS:

Ever wondered where the expression ‘banana republic’ came from?

It was inspired by Chiquita’s horrible labor and human rights abuses once upon a time.

These abuses actually helped the spread of communism throughout Latin America.

Now Chiquita’s trying to salvage its anti-left reputation by embracing… Saudi conflict oil!?

This entertaining, fact-filled video starring Ezra Levant tells the tale:

I know: boycotts can be a pain.

But this one might be fun!
