The soldiers gather 3,000 banana strikers for a meeting in the town square. Marksmen are perched atop buildings, and when the Captain gives the order, they open fire with machine guns killing all. Their corpses were loaded into 200 boxcars and deposited into the sea along with rotten bananas. Aureliano’s mother claims she found him floating in a basket on the river. Yellow butterflies invade the town while scavengers hover above.
