|They ripped the grass off as high as they could reach.|
|They broke the supports on this roof.|
|They tore the roof off and broke pieces off.|
They had begun opening the ground for their fields (hours of hoeing by hand) and they have been told if they use those fields they will come back and torch the plants. So they are quickly trying to open land in other places but now is the time for seeds already so germination will be late. If the dry season comes too early it could mean another year of poor harvest. It makes me want to weep just considering it.
