Copies of the full declaration by former AUC Commander Carlos Tijeras will be available at the event. This affadavit provides definitive proof that Chiquita and Dole used the AUC, a designated terrorist organization, as a mercenary force that murdered thousands of innocent people in and around the banana plantations.
