Video evidence from Ecuador: Banana pesticide aircraft sprays toxic substances on lunch tables

While they are on the plantations, they are being sprayed with toxic pesticides. For one of the plantation workers this has been enough now: he secretly films the dangerous practice with his mobile phone. With the video he wants to call attention to the violation of his labour rights. The plantation operators have to allow the formation of labour associations on the plantations so that workers are able to claim their rights!
