On January 6, she was summoned to Tel Aviv's Magistrate Court. She learned about her indictment for the first time. On January 23, her initial hearing will be held. It's the day after general elections.

Summer 2011 and 2012 protests were peaceful. She's charged with participating in a riot, interfering with police, using force, and resisting arrest. Accusations are spurious.

Israeli authorities called social justice protests illegal. Police said demonstrators "disturbed the peace in a way that could intimidate the public."

Leef "led the angry demonstrators and encouraged their acts against inspectors and policemen," they claimed.

Accusations turned truth on its head. Leaf rejects them. "I've been fighting to make (Israel) a better place for a year and half now," she said.

"There's something crazy about receiving an indictment that has no basis in reality."

She and other organizers were targeted for doing the right thing. That's how police states operate. Leaf did nothing illegal. She's confident she'll prove it in court.

She didn't interfere with police, use force, or resist arrest. Police attacked, dragged and beat her. She was injured.
