    Most of the avocados are exported to Europe where they are sold overpriced. Neoliberalism in action.

    something as vital as water shouldn't be privatized

    Is that why the Spanish word for Avocado is aguacate where agua is Spanish for water

    Foods produced on the grave of innocent lives will never help anyone to prosper 😔

    Great, another food to worry about. If we worried about every scrap that we ate, we would be eating food made by a 3d printer out of stuff made in a laboratory.

    Because of this video I seen months ago, I refrain from purchasing avocados. I have once . Bought 3 for a get together ( non indigenous peoples). Wasn’t appreciated. Still have 1. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Find solutions not cry Or you'll be crying all your life ti'll the day you die. If you have the courage to do video share why not do it realistically. Just a thought.

    This sort of thing happens in more developed countries, like Australia, where we are allowing Adani to mine for coal , (a dirty fossil fuel!), which uses a vast amount of water in its production. Water here is a very precious commodity too
