Spurred by disaffection with urban culture, federal control and the increased state regulation pressed by the Sacramento government seated to the south, a growing number of northern Californians are pushing for secession from their state.
At least two counties — Siskiyou and Modoc — have already reportedly voted for withdrawal; officials in another, Tehama County, recently voted to put a referendum for secession on the ballot in June of 2014; and seven other northern California counties now claim popular committees in support of the long-shot measure, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“We are staking our futures on our ability to live and thrive in this area,” Kayla Nicole Brown, a 23-year-old from Redding who is now a leader in Shasta County’s secession movement, told The Times. “And if we can’t, we have to leave.”
The Times reports majority votes in both the state Legislature and the U.S. Congress are required for secession to actually occur.
But The Times cites the growing prevalence of what is called the State of Jefferson Flag around the Golden State’s northern reaches.
