A group pushing for California to secede from the United States is turning to Iran for help.
YesCalifornia wants to open an outpost in Tehran to develop Iranian support for its “Calexit” campaign, similar to its previous effort in Moscow.
The group’s president, Marcus Ruiz Evans, published a video saying that a future California nation would depart from U.S. policies on Iranian enrichment of uranium, the development of nuclear power in Iran, and the status of Israel among other issues.
“If the people of Iran let it be known that California could gain international recognition upon declaring independence, that would set a fire in California like the world has never seen before,” Mr. Evans said in the video.
Mr. Evans‘ advocacy trended on Twitter Monday under the topic “Calexit” as many users appearing to be based in Iran posted messages of support for the campaign.
Despite his efforts, political analysts do not foresee California seceding as it would require the approval of the California State Legislature and Congress and ratification by other states.
Mr. Evans told The Washington Times that foreign attention helps his group achieve credibility, beyond the support it has attracted on the far-right and far-left. Mr. Evans said Russian recognition of YesCalifornia proved fruitful.
