The mostly Marxist/Socialist/Communist counter protesters at political rallies they oppose, utilize the assistance of what they call "legal observers" provided by an organization of attorneys called the "National Lawyer's Guild". In this photograph from December 1, 2018 at the "Liberty or Death 2" rally held by the Washington Three Percent, this "legal observer" was among the counter-protesters. With this stern express, this man, who may or may be an attorney, made himself physically part of the armed human barricade around the counter protesters who crowded the Cherry Street sidewalk at the southwest intersection with 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. The National Lawyer's Guild also provides the counter protesters with bail support if they get arrested. Some counter protesters have been arrested by the Seattle Police Department at these events, usually and mostly for assaulting attendees of the rallies the counter protesters oppose.
