FETAD: Taking Back Our Land video by PAN AP.

This is our rice field
This is our story
Of lives that are planted
Rooted in these lands
In our rice fields
Each step of the terrace is a witness
To our plowing, tilling, planting and nurturing...

Sorwe-eh Cheerfully, let’s do the planting very quickly
Sorwe-eh ommeh-ommeh ommeom
Sorwe-eh So we can finish in time
Sorwe-eh ommeh-ommeh ommeom
Sorwe-eh Before the sun goes down
Sorwe-eh ommeh-ommeh ommeom
