In the low countries (if it is my domain to say so), there are Dutch,
Frisians, Brzhona, Walloons, Platt-speakers and some Letzebuergers.
It also reminds me of the Spanish Civil War period. After 1945

I have yet to work that out in detail, but there are several factions of
freedom fighters similar to the IRA or the Basque ETA who operate in the
Netherlands and against Dutch interests elsewhere, since around the early
50's. One is extremely left, called, like it's German mother org, Red
Army Fraction, but they are the least Brzhona-independence oriented, and
could be considered to be cells of the German RAF. There is a moderate
left group (supported by the USSR until it's death) and an
ultra-Brzhona-nationalist group (it operates throughout the EU (if it
exists *there*), and overseas against EU interests, as well as against US
interests in Europe) who are both still active. The Brzhona RAF went down
though at the same time as the German RAF was broken. The moderate left
group could be called Eurocommunists; they are since the collapse of the
USSR less active than previously, and much less active than the
ultranationalists. The ultranationalist group does, however, occasionally
work/train together with Euskadi ta Askatasuna (ETA), with Kosovo
Liberation Army, Action Directe and Islamic Jihad (assuming, again, that
the rest of the world *there* is more or less as it is *here*).
Stay tuned for further details.
