Newsline: California secessionist leader announces opening of ‘embassy’ in Russia

An American citizen spearheading the California secessionist movement said he’ll open an embassy in Moscow this weekend as his separatist campaign looks toward Russia for recognition. Louis Marinelli, the president of the Yes California Independence Campaign, plans to open the doors to the Golden State’s first ever “embassy” in none other than the Russian capital. Mr. Marinelli, 30, has been one of the most vocal proponents in recent years of the grassroots movement dedicated towards gaining California’s independence from the United States. He’s orchestrated that campaign from abroad since at least September, however, when he relocated from San Diego to Siberia to be with his Russian wife, KQED recently reported. Announcing his plans to open the first Embassy of the Independent Republic of California this week, Mr. Marinelli said the facility will serve as a hub for his secessionist movement to gain support from Russia, notwithstanding tensions between Moscow and Washington currently being at its worst in decades.
