Girl Scout pictured standing up to demonstrator at neo-Nazi rally

Far-right Czech activists shout as they march in protest against the Roma minority in Plzen

"It was heated, the neo-Nazi was clearly angry with her, but she stood her ground".

The juxtaposition in the photo is startling: On the left, gesturing angrily, is a right-wing demonstrator sporting black clothes, sunglasses and a shaved head.

A teenage Girl Scout confronted a neo-Nazi at a rally in the Czech Republic - and the image has gone viral worldwide. On the right side of the image, staring right at him is a 16-year-old Girl Scout.

The photo has been widely shared and has called attention to the Girl Scout, Lucie Myslíková. The network says the girls is 16-year-old Lucie "Lala" Myslíková.

"There was some kind of far-right march, so a bunch of people went there as well to protest in a peaceful way - they were dancing and painting, later more people came to protest against neo-Nazis with drums and so on".

"I didn't hear all of their exchange but they were talking about the concept of nations and nation-states, immigration, refugees", he said.

Lucie was there attending a counter demonstration with a few other Scouts.

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.

According to local news site Romea, around 150 "ultra-right" demonstrators planned to march through the city to denounce multiculturalism and the country's membership in the European Union. "Creating a better world!"
