The Natives are Getting Restless

In the wake of the far-from-bloodless separation of Novorossiya from Ukraine, all kinds of other groups, worried that they will feel the agony of defeat the way Scotland just did, are heating up their separatist and autonomist movements.

French Guiana is fed up!  The Great Wall of Texas group is starting another bucket drive!  Catalonia's mad as hell and not going to take it any more!  Stay tuned for news of the Bermuda Independence Commission!  The Vermont Independence Party is not going to take it lying down!  The Chiapas Mayans are making real strides towards self-rule as they struggle to throw off the Mexican yoke!  The Inuits are trying to secede from Denmark as I type this!  Montserrat wants liberation, now!

I could go on and on.  (In fact, I think I just did.)  There are more of these groups out there than you can shake a stick at, seriously.  One rather wonders where it's all headed.
