My name is Marina. I'm a 56-year old farmer. I own a 4-hectare land that has been the source of livelihood for my family. Dole company, the biggest banana producer in the world, wants to lease my land for 15 years at US$200 per hectare per year. I refused because I know the impact of their pesticides on our health and the environment. Dole is persistent. So am I. I will not give up my land even if I constantly get harassed and intimidated by Dole through the local government and the military.
