It is a continuous issue since 2002, when Israel built the Wall. There were no real understanding of the Wall impact on the Palestinian society. Most media, other than the big ones, don't have corespondents in the country for financial reasons. The question was always how to deliver the massage? how to encourage media to cover issue directly from the mouth of the affected people on ground? how to give a global image and analysis to what is happening here?. At some point, activists around the world were proposing c\their personal contacts with their local media. Here the idea came: why not to create a platform for them? this platform can show how a hot topic is covered around the world. Will show how different regions cover the same topic & how people respond to it. Who, of the media, interested in what and where?. How joint global work can create a difference.
