At the Liberty or Death rally in downtown Seattle, on Saturday August 18, 2018 by the political group Washington Three Percent, this counter protesting woman carried a stick labelled "Anti-Fascist", which she held up closely in front of her face. The woman and her stick struck an interesting political chord. This young woman with the "Anti-Fascist" labelled stick kept tugging at the bandanna she was using to cover her face. The question repeatedly arose while photographing these masked people - why did she believe she needed to hide her face? What is the implication in the U.S., where people supposedly have a constitutional right to free speech, that some people who seem to want to say they are "anti-fascist" appear afraid to openly take that political stance, as they hide behind masks while publicly espousing it?
