This woman single-handedly stood up to 330 violent Neo-Nazis as they protested on the streets in Sweden.
Tess Asplund, a woman from Sweden, has been an activist for 26 years now and said that:
“I normally stand with a raised fist at demonstrations, this is not new to me.”
However, a photo of the brave photographer/activist raising her fist in protest went viral for one iconic reason: she was raising it all alone against 330 marching Neo-Nazis.
Last week, the Neo-Nazis, part of a group called the Nordic Resistance Movement, obtained a permit to demonstrate and did so in Borlange, Dalarna, in central Sweden. The group rallied and marched on the busy streets on International Workers’ Day and were protected by police.
Asplund was taking part in a counter demonstration against the Nazis with a group called Dalarna Against Racism when she saw the Nazis approaching and decided that she could not allow them to walk by without showing her disdain for their movement.
