Martinique: ‘The French state is complicit’ – Martinicans react to pesticide poisoning claims

Ruptly | October 8, 2018

Martinique resident Anicia Berton believes time spent working on Martinique’s sprawling banana plantations may have contributed to her grandmother’s death from generalised cancer, due to exposure to hazardous pesticides.

“She used these products for years without any form of protection. And when she came home, she brought pesticides with her into the house,” she said.

Berton, who survived breast cancer after being diagnosed six years ago, spoke about what many islanders and scientists see as a direct link between the use of the now-outlawed pesticide chlordecone and incidents of ill health among the Martinican population.
