Israeli activist Jonathan Pollak attends a hearing in the trial against him on September 28th. Pollak was arrested in January on charges of stone-throwing during a demonstration against a new Israeli settlement. After his arrest, the activist asked that his case be moved from a civilian court to a military court so that he would face the same treatment as Palestinians. However, the court denied Pollak’s request, leading him to reject the legitimacy of the court and refuse to cooperate with the proceedings.
