According to La Tercera, the photo happened after police began randomly arresting a group marching through the city. The photographer, Carlos Vera Mancilla, told the website that the girl then “reacted and stood before the policeman with a defiant look."

The photo was taken outside the General Cemetery of Recoleta, where relatives of those who went missing under Pinochet's rule had gathered.
