why did the United Fruit company take power?- i say they took power by cheap labor, climaxes with a CIA-organized government coup,and their bananas.

How did the United Fruit company control the government?-- they began to acquire land in Latin America for banana plantations, they snatched up around 42 percent of farmland in Guatemala. They gave the exclusive right to transport mail, and clinched a stranglehold on all of transportation and communication systems

Why would Guatemalans hate United Fruit Company? -The workers didnt get paid enough money, provided minimal benefits, and labored grueling hours.
How does colonization affect Africans now?- THE colonization affects africans now by europeans came and took the money and made them poor.

How did the Europeans take over Africa and keep control? by taking all their gold and kept control by making the africans fight each other.

Do you think things will get better? Why or why not? No because till this day they still are fighting each other and there is no way of them getting to peace.
