Separatist, Independence, and Decentralization Movements

Sometimes people decide they cannot secure their rights within the framework of an existing polity, and must separate from it. Sometimes they live in an occupied country, and the occupying power has no intention of extending the full rights of citizenship to them, or of complying with constitutional principles. We generally favor enforcing constitutional compliance within an existing polity, but sometimes independence is the only way. We distinguish them from Freedom Movements and Republican Movements. The following are links to some movements of this kind. Inclusion does not indicate approval or support, only relevance.
