"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.
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!"
