Czech anti-fascist girl threatened by nazis

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Girl scout was eye to eye with neonazi and is now threatened

Today, 18:32

A black-haired man with a skinhead and sunglasses is eye-catching with a girl. She wears a scouting uniform and has a determined look. And that resulted in this image.

The above picture was taken on May 1 at a demonstration of right-wing extremists in the Czech city of Brno. 16-year-old Lucie Myslikova also took to the street and was one of 300 counter-demonstrators.

The World Scouting Organization (WOSM) shared the picture on Facebook last week. Since then, the photo has been shared more than 4000 times and been liked more than 9500 times. “I wasn’t afraid,” said Lucie about the picture.

But now, according to the Czech Ministry of Internal Affairs, she is threatened and has been provided with security.

“I went to the counter-demonstration as someone who was determined to change things. To me it makes sense to try and change the world around me,” says Lucie in an interview with the BBC.

The extreme rightist demonstrators took to the street to protest against … the arrival of migrants. Lucie spoke with the neonazi about their country and borders. In their confrontation, the neonazi told Lucie she would be raped by refugees.

“I told him that I think that countries have a duty to help those fleeing war and conflict, and that in such cases borders do not exist,” says Lucie. She also finds it important that young people make their voices heard. “I think young people should get involved in such things. They should be aware of what’s going on. You ask me if standing up to skinheads should be left to older people – well us, younger people, are going to be living here a lot longer than the older generation.”

And so she took to the street. …

“The main thing that struck me is that some people are now calling me an ‘extremist’, that being anti-fascist is somehow ‘extremist’,” she told the BBC.

“That seems to be me the height of absurdity.”

    NORTHERN TUC delegates backed Show Racism the Red Card’s (SRTRC) latest initiative to challenge race-hate yesterday.

    The group, launched in 1996 to metaphorically kick racism off the terraces, is planning a Wear Red Day on Friday October 20.

    It urges people to go to work or school wearing something red as a symbol of support for the campaign.

    SRTRC is also promoting fundraising and other activities on the day.

    Every year SRTRC runs educational workshops, training sessions, multimedia packages and other resources aimed at tackling racism in society.

    It has recruited leading footballers and teams, and takes its message into fan clubs and schools.
