Tragedy Unfolding: Destruction of our ancestral coconut grove

We were persuaded initially to knock down a few coconut trees so that the road could be built across the village.  The evildoers further persuaded us to knock down all the remaining trees in case typhoon leads to falling coconuts that could damage the rooftop of the ancestral house.  Now that the entire grove is gone, they lay claim to our entire garden!  So all you read about cheats and land grabs is true!
