The National Liberation Front of Corsica (Corsican: Fronte di Liberazione Naziunale Corsu, or FLNC) is a militant group that advocats an independent state on the island of Corsica, separate from France. They also wanted all currently imprisoned members of the FLNC in France to be put into Corsican prisons. The organisation's presence was primarily in Corsica and less so on the French mainland.


Typical militant acts by the FLNC were bombings, aggravated assault, armed bank robbery and extortion through "revolutionary taxes", and are mostly aimed at public buildings, banks, tourist infrastructure, military buildings and other symbols of French control. Usually the attacks were against buildings and infrastructure and not against people. (Wikipedia)
