The CalExit folks ("Yes California) want California to be a separate country

and are against splitting California into 3 states.


But the Yes California folks also want to transfer all California federal lands to form an Autonomous Native Nation with a seat at the UN. See map at link.


"Greenland is an autonomous Danish dependent territory with self-government and its own parliament. Denmark contributes two thirds of Greenland's budget revenue, the rest coming mainly from fishing.

But what does Greenland and Denmark have anything to do with Calexit?

"Today we are announcing the expansion of the Calexit plan to be even bigger and more ambitious than ever before," Louis J. Marinelli, a Calexit co-founder explained. "The new Calexit plan I am pleased to present today will not only bring about the first successful, peaceful, and legal secession of an American state from the United States but starting today the new Calexit plan now includes the establishment of the first-ever autonomous Native American nation in North America."

The plan is to retrocede virtually all federally-owned properties in California back to its original occupants, the California Native Americans, the organization said, adding that the federal government currently owns about 47 percent of the land in California.

"This new Calexit plan reaches higher and farther than any previous attempt in history to right the wrongs the American government has committed throughout its history against the Native Americans," Marinelli said."

Who is Yes California and how is it funded?

GovTrack.us is a useful site for tracking Congress and Legislation.


Note: I have nothing to do with GovTrack but found the site today looking for things about Ron Dellums (who was a great Congressman).
