In April, a photo of a young woman smiling at an English Defence League (EDL) protestor went viral. The benevolent smile on the face of the protagonist, Saffiyah Khan, became a symbol of defiance in the face of far-right extremism.

Less than a month on, another similar photo has emerged on Facebook, and has been shared thousands of times.

The image, shared by Vladimír Čičmanec, depicts a young girl in a scouts uniform confronting an aggravated participator in a neo-Nazi rally in Brno, Czech Republic.

The rally, held on May 1, was not blocked as it has been in previous years, as residents were told to combat the ultra-right movement with dance, music, and theatre performances instead of trying to stop the far-right group.
