  Separatism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Separatist groups themselves often reject the term separatism: they may consider it pejorative, and prefer more neutral terms such as self-determination.
These include the Basque ETA in France and Spain, Sikh separatists in India during the 1980s, the IRA in Ireland since the 1910s, and the Front de Libération du Québec in the 1960s, culminating in the October Crisis in 1970.
Separatist movements often have a least a superficial basis in nationalism or in religious fervour.

In general, Separatist views were not as extreme as Puritanical beliefs regarding social customs, but were more extreme when it came to separating ties with the established Church of England.
Both Puritanism and the Pilgrims' separatist movement, as well as Presbyterianism, descend from John Calvin and the Calvinists of the mid-1500s.
The distinctions between Separatists and Puritans are covered in depth in Orthodoxy in Massachusetts, 1630-1650, by Perry Miller, and is briefly summarized in Plymouth Colony: Its History and Its People, 1620-1691, by Eugene Aubrey Stratton, and The Puritans, by Thomas H. Johnson.

 Quebec's Fiery Premier Shocks Nation by Quitting / Quebec's Premier Quits / Resignation leaves separatist movement in ...
Formerly a lawyer in Chicoutimi, a separatist hotbed, Bouchard entered politics as a Conservative Party member, serving as Canada's ambassador to France from 1985-88 under Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and winning a seat in federal Parliament in 1988.
In 1995, as a separatist referendum push appeared to be faltering, Bouchard stepped into provincial politics and almost single-handedly revived the campaign.
Bouchard was furious last month when hard-liners opposed his attempts to censure a leading separatist who had made anti-Jewish remarks, and he despaired that he might never overcome the ethnic nationalist impulses -- the notion that Quebec belongs only to those of French blood -- considered by many to be the dark side of separatism.

The All Party Hurriyat Conference - a coalition of 14 Kashmiri political separatist groups - will send a senior leader to meet the UN secretary-general when he arrives in the Indian capital on Thursday, on the final leg of his South Asian tour.
Annan began his week-long visit to the region in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad, where he said the key to resolving the five decade-old dispute between the nuclear capable South Asian nations lay in existing bilateral agreements, rather than in UN resolutions dating back to the year 1948.
The Hurriyat is also disappointed with the Indian government's refusal to accept the separatist grouping as a mediator in the India-Pakistan dispute.

Observers say Eluay's death could be a major setback to efforts by President Megawati Sukarnoputri's new government to calm separatist tensions in Indonesia's easternmost province.
Eluay, the head of the separatist Papuan Presidium Council, had been on bail awaiting trial for subversion, an offense that carries a maximum 20-year prison term.
The separatist movement is a loose coalition that had been making little headway toward self-rule, and Eluay's illness had loosened his grip on leadership.

It was only a generation ago, after all, that French-speakers could not order a cup of coffee on St. Catherine Street, Montreal's main shopping area, in their own language or be sure that they could converse with the admitting nurse at Royal Victoria Hospital.
Nowhere is the decline in support for separatism more evident than among young Quebecers, who have no memory of the slights and discrimination that still animate the aging leadership of the separatist movement.
There were similar warnings in the 1980s after a crushing defeat for the separatists in the 1980 referendum.

 Quebec sovereignty movement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This ambiguity is further enhanced since the majority of Quebec's media, both written (with the notable exceptions of the CHOI-FM libertarian Quebec City radio station and the La Presse and The Gazette newspapers), usually support the PQ's left to left-of-centre politics, if not the party itself.
The separatist movement draws however above the Left and Right spectrum, a sizeable minority of more conservative Quebeckers supporting the PQ's political agenda because of the sovereignty issue, despite reservations about its social democratic/socialist political agenda.
Although one cannot generalize, natural allies of sovereignty tend to be found within the Left: labour unions, the French-speaking arts community, students (non-working members of the younger generations, as compared to Generation-Xers), the media, the Catholic clergy, anti-globalization supporters and the academic political left.
