The Dispatch from U.S. Bogotá Embassy to the US Secretary of State, dated January 16, 1929, stated:

“I have the honor to report that the Bogotá representative of the United Fruit Company told me yesterday that the total number of striking banana workers killed by the Colombian military exceeded 1000.”

And the rich got richer.

Lorenzo Dow Baker of United Fruit.
