Politics| | By Lauren Boudreau
Asplund jumped out in front of the neo-Nazis raising her fist in defiance. “I don’t think I even thought about it really, I just jumped out,” she told Swedish newspaper The Local. What followed was a stare-down between her and one of the neo-Nazis captured on film by photographer David Lagerlöf.
Twitter users are calling it the photo of the year and even comparing it to the iconic 1985 photo of an old lady using a bag as a weapon against neo-Nazi protesters.
