The photo was taken at a far-right rally on May 1, in Brno, Czech Republic, reports The Huffington Post, and was posted to Facebook by user Vladimír Cicmanec. The girl's pose and expression are calm and strong, unafraid of the neo-Nazi in her face. The image is certainly resonating with people across the internet, considering the original Facebook post has more than 5,000 reactions, 1,000 shares, and 46 comments.
It was also posted to the World Organization of the Scout Movement's (WOSM) Facebook page, where it has more than 4,000 reactions, 1,000 shares, and 74 comments. There, WOSM names the girl scout as Lucie and shares that scouts were protesting the far-right rally "to express their support for values of diversity, peace, and understanding." The photo has also found its way to Reddit and Imgur.
Perhaps this photo of Lucie and other protesters who continue to stand up for what they believe in might finally send the message to the far right: they won't go anywhere anytime soon and they aren't afraid.
