  El Salvador - Nationalist Republican Alliance   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The nature of the Nationalist Republican Alliance (Alianza Republicana Nacionalista--Arena) as a political force in El Salvador was the object of some debate as it moved toward becoming a ruling party with its 1988 electoral victory.
Some observers characterized Arena as the institutional representative of the "disloyal right," meaning those conservative forces that played the game of democracy while privately harboring preferences for authoritarian or even dictatorial rule and a restoration of the absolute political preeminence of the elite.
The party's legislative agenda was uncertain in mid-1988, but it seemed to entail some tinkering with land reform provisions, such as changing the titling procedure for cooperatives; easing the tax and regulatory burden on the private sector, especially the coffee industry; restoring private banking; and, perhaps, reprivatizing the foreign trade procedures.

 SPLCenter.org: The Year in Hate
Although the anti-immigration movement has endured several recent splits, it appears to be growing more radical overall, particularly since its supporters on the right wing of the Republican Party have grown increasingly isolated and weak as the GOP suffers from election losses and an unpopular war.
That radicalization was reflected in a recent comment from Chris Simcox, a co-founder of the Minuteman Project who had been a relatively moderate voice in the nativist movement.
The nadir came in June, when Alliance Chairman Shaun Walker was arrested in Utah and charged with federal civil rights violations in two attacks on non-white bar patrons in 2002 and 2003.

For Nationalists and Republicans it is argued that the right to national self-determination should be applied to the whole island of Ireland, thus increasing the chances of a vote in favour of a united Ireland.
This particular phrase is often used by Nationalist and Republican politicians in an attempt to explain the mindset of the Unionist / Loyalist community in Northern Ireland.
To the anger and resentment of the Nationalist community it was regarded as being mainly targeted at them and as a result the repeal of the Special Powers Act became one of the main demands of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

 Provisional Irish Republican Army (U.K., separatists) - Council on Foreign Relations   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The provisional Irish Republican Army [IRA] is an outgrowth of a group that fought for and won independence from Britain during the years 1916-1921, when Ireland was partitioned and the six northern counties reconstituted as the British province of Ulster or Northern Ireland.
The provisional IRA emerged during the late 1960s styling itself as the defenders of the Roman Catholic minority in the North whose efforts to win civil rights peacefully were met by force by the Protestant "unionist" majority.
Since then, many Catholic “republicans” (also known as “nationalists”) have complained of feeling like second-class citizens in Ulster and have backed the IRA’s quest for a united Ireland free of British rule.
