The powerful moment a girl scout stood up to a neo-Nazi is going viral
A photo of a girl scout facing down with a neo-Nazi member is going viral for all the right reasons.
The image shows a young girl scout named Lucie as she tried to speak with a member of the far-right neo-Nazi movement at a protest in Czech Republic over the weekend.
The girl was reportedly holding a sign which read, “We will raise your children”, as she and others protested an extreme right rally that was being held in the Czech capital.

The post, which was posted on Reddit and has since been shared on social media, has already received over 61,000 clicks on Reddit alone, and has been shared by the World Organisation of Scout Movement (WOSM), who said:
“People from all walks of life, and scouts among them, came to the streets during an extreme right march yesterday to express their support for values of diversity, peace and understanding. Creating a better world.”
One Facebook user shed a little more light on what happened at the rally, saying:
“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.
“The whole point of the protest was to enjoy the first day of May, Which is also the traditional day to celebrate love and spring.
“The message was, ‘We are tired of your hate and pessimism’. I think we, members of the scout movement, can relate to that, no matter our political views.”
