Mark Seddon is live with Ahmed Alnaouq, a Palestinian journalist from Gaza whose personal story was the inspiration behind the creation of We Are Not Numbers, a youth group devoted to amplifying Palestinian voices under occupation and training their next generation of writers.

Together they will be picking apart the Western media's coverage, or lack of it, on the realities Palestinians face on the ground under Israel's occupation.

Tune in as they shine a light on the journalistic double standards of major Western outlets seen in the reporting of recent events, such as the killing of the iconic Palestinian journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, by Israeli forces last month.
