“Fyffes’s nobodies”

The nobodies: nobody’s children, owners of nothing.
Who are not human being, but human resources.
Who do not have faces, but arms.
(Eduardo Galeano)

In abject poverty. Completely forsaken. This is how workers of the multinational corporation Fyffes/Sumitomo live in Honduras. Workers who have given the company years of their lives, yet are denied a dignified life.

The melons they harvest reach the United States spotless, with a myriad of seals that certify excellent conditions of production, environmental care, and full respect for human rights.

These images expose the organized crime that lies behind the fruit.
