Most people don't see what's happening in Gaza because most Western media channels don't show the reality of what's happening, and have no access to events because Israeli has banned all international journalists from entering Gaza. Aljazeera is the only international media channel with journalists inside Gaza right now, showing images and coverage you won't see on any other channel.
Watch Aljazeera English live online and encourage all those you know to watch

7. WRITE TO THE MEDIA - VERY IMPORTANT
Place pressure on British media organisations to be even-handed in their reporting and call Israeli actions in Gaza for what it is – state terrorism.
Contact media outlets to either praise balanced coverage or to criticise biased coverage. Call in to radio talk shows and write letters to the editor to express your views.
Click here to find local and national media contact information.
Post comments on media websites and blogs that discuss the crisis. As part of Israel's propaganda campaign, they've unleashed a number of bloggers to influence web discussions of the situation and spread lies. Don't let them dominate the discussion - make sure you get the truth across, even if it's just a line or two.
