The men are yelling propaganda, information biased to promote a particular belief, at the boys as they stab the banana trees. What are the rebels wanting the boys to visualize as they stab the banana trees?Chapter 12

The boys are instructed to practice stabbing their enemies on the banana tree.
We were taken to a nearby banana farm, where we practiced stabbing the banana trees with bayonets. “Visualize the banana tree as the enemy, the rebels who killed your parents, your family, and those who are responsible for everything that has happened to you,” the corporal screamed. “Is that how you stab someone who had killed your family?” he asked. “This is how I would do it.”
