Venice votes to secede from Italy

March 24, 2014

The proposed flag of Padania used by the Lega Nord.

The Republic of Venice has been part of the Italian state since 1866 when it was acquired by the Kingdom of Italy. Before that, for a thousand years prior to the rise of Napoleon and the wars he unleashed across Europe, the maritime city-state had guarded its independence and built up a wealthy trading empire through the Mediterranean and beyond. Recently, the region of Veneto (of which Venice is the capital) held an online referendum (which is unrecognised by the Italian state) in which 2.1 million of the region’s eligible 3.7 million voters endorsed Veneto’s secession from Italy. Only a quarter million people voted against independence, making it an overwhelming 89% who expressed support for secession. Matt Ford writes about the issue for the Left-wing publication The Atlantic:

Luca Zaia, Veneto’s regional president and the referendum’s most prominent supporter, echoed the sentiments of separatist movements across Europe when he declared that international law allowed “the right to self-determination.” But whether Italian law allows it is a different matter. “The ‘digital plebiscite’ has no legal value and it cannot force anyone to do anything,” claimed Mario Bertolissi, an Italian constitutional scholar. “In short, it has no practical consequences.” But with Scotland voting on independence from the U.K. in September and Catalonia weighing an unauthorized November referendum to leave Spain, it’s worth watching how Veneto’s independence campaign plays out.

President Zaia is a member of the Right-wing Liga Venta, a Venetian nationalist party that is a founding member of the Lega Nord (Northern League). Zaia was elected with 60.2% of the vote (the highest ever for his office). In that election the Liga Venta also became the largest party in the region. The Lega Nord is formed from a union of various nationalist parties in the regions of northern and central Italy. It advocates Padanian nationalism, promotes the Celtic identity of the people of the region and opposes Third World immigration. In 2011 it was the only major party in Italy to oppose the new ‘technocratic’ banker regime in Rome. The Lega Nord also has connections to the League of the South, the largest and most active Southern nationalist organisation. The original name of the League of the South was the Southern League and it was founded in part upon inspiration of the Lega Nord.

    It certainly makes a actual binding referendum all but mandatory.

  • Logan Smith

    Man, that’s amazing. It sucks they want to join the EU and NATO, but hey, that’s what the people want. Hopefully they go through with it, and secession becomes even more legitimate. This is great, all in all, especially since the Lega Nord is an ally of Dixie. Every day, we gain more and more support from the world.

      Because we are rascist by their standards. Anyone who is not on the left is rascist is there opinion. People still think America can get out of this situation with Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, Amnesty and 16-17 Trillion dollars in debt and Red Chinese buying imperial debt. Also they don’t realize states rights have been destroyed and have created a consolidated federal goverment. On top of that most don’t realize at the least America has been an empire since the first Bush. Also they still think the Empire has the same world influence it did during the Cold War when Russia was communist. They still think Russia is communist even though Putin has created a better market economy than EPA and IRS regulated Imperial economy.

        The U.S. has been an empire since Manifest Destiny.

  • Virginian Secessionist

    My heart is with the Serene Republic. If she can reclaim her independence, it would re-establish Venice as one of the extremely rare independent countries in the world to have existed since antiquity…

  • Anti-Federalist

    It’s great to hear that indentitarian/nationalist movements are gaining steam throughout the globe. I wish the same could be said of the South. Too many Southerners have been indoctrinated into the American identity rather than Southern/local identity. Most cannot fathom the idea of actually seceding from the US.

    • Virginian Secessionist

      We just gotta keep working at it. 3 years ago, I thought Southern secession was a dead thing, never to return. Now look at us…

      • Logan Smith

        Same thing happened the first time, too. Rhett and other fire-eaters were considered a far right fringe group, then all of a sudden if you weren’t for secession you were crazy. The same thing is happening now. People consider us far right extremists, but soon everyone and their mother will join our ranks.

        • Jay

          That’s how these type of movements start. As we pick up steam the direction will shift more and more towards the middle. As long as we secure freedom our nation of people understood by all of us and backed by our devotion to god will survive for all time.

      • Anti-Federalist

        I hope you’re right. Some Southern US conservatives may sound a little hostile towards the Federal government but as soon as you put Federal flag, bald eagle, US soldier, or military hardware in front of them, they are in full salute pledging their undying loyalty to ‘Murica. That’s why I believe the powers that be will keep the US in persistent conflict. War, after all, is the health of the Federal government.

        We have a lot of deprogramming to do to our fellow Southerners.

        • Virginian Secessionist

          We definitely do. But I’m one of the most stubborn individuals on the planet. If I can go from shouting ‘MURICA!’ to being a Southern Nationalist, anyone can.

          • Logan Smith

            I use to be a die hard imperialistic patriot. If you and I can change, anyone can change. Although, I do have to wonder about the past generation. I feel like they’re too stuck in a 1950′s mindset, and just can’t wake up to the fact that the U.S. they know is dead.

            • Virginian Secessionist

              There are many of our generation who are the same. Though they will be easier to convince, because the US of the 50s is just a dream to them, something their parents and grandparents have told them about to fuel their patriotism. But they’ve never known this ‘Golden Age’ themselves. What has our generation known? Clinton, Bush, Obama. Not exactly the most inspirational 24 years of this empire’s history…

            • Logan Smith

              Agreed, which means we ought to focus on our generation, for ours is the future. I’m probably the only 20 (21 in a few days) year old who’s actually serious about secession, where I live. Our generation is fed up, but they don’t know what they’re fed up about or what to do about their frustrations. Indoctrination by the government has made them think it’s impossible to secede or that secession=racism and war. We need to fix this misconception. We need to make our generation realize that losing internet and what not does not mean it’s the end of the world.

              I’m going to raise my children tough. They will not be given everything they ask for, intentionally making them hardened to the world. I suggest everyone do this, so we won’t get pussies saying “but what about the roads/electricity/standard of living?” Our ancestors not but a generation back never worried about that crap, and neither should we.

              That’s my two cents.

            • Virginian Secessionist

              Blood and Soil, friend. That is what matters. You know it. I know it. We need to get our peers to understand it, and raise our children to understand it. That’s where my saying, ‘I would rather be the poorest beggar in Virginia than own all the world beside’ comes from. What does the rest matter if I can be in the land of my birth, the land of my ancestors?

            • Logan Smith

              You’re right. It’s MTV and the air conditioner’s fault, if you think about it. MTV (cable) brought outside influences in (accents, dress) and the air conditioner brought in the Yankee himself (peer pressure, being made fun of for being a Southron). TV and schools have brainwashed everyone into believing the whole country, all 50 States and the citizens there of, are the same people.

              Raise your children to respect our God, land, and heritage. Try and open the eyes of your friends. ‘Tis a hard task, but this we must do.

            • Jay

              Its a shame you all have had to live under such little freedom your whole lives. We used to be so free that you could mail order a rifle or go out and have fun at night without being hassled by the cops.

        • Logan Smith

          I believe that’s why they’re trying to renew the hatred toward Russia. Hopefully people will get out of their Cold War era mindset, and realize Russia isn’t a Godless Communist country anymore.

          • Anti-Federalist

            I agree. The conservative intelligentsia is promoting Cold War II. It takes a very sick mind for someone to become nostalgic about war.

          • Jay

            They need us to hate russia because it has crawled out from under the global oligarchy. Just like ww1 where the jews backed the central powers and by default through their control of the media most of the rest of the empire did because of the czar’s exhile and hatred of the jews (until the german zionist faction made a deal with britian to get palestine after the war and the commie plan in russia was well under way). Once those two things happened we found ourselves fighting in europe supporting britian and france and the allies were now seen as the rightious side.

      • Wōdanaz

        I agree.

        In Georgia, there are many people who have full-sized Confederate battle flags and Gadsden flags connected to their SUVs/trucks. This is in a middle class suburb mind you; great news!

        People are gradually awakening.
