The "Front de Libération du Québec" was a nationalist and Marxist revolutionary group, using propaganda and terrorism in Quebec, a province of Canada. It is responsible for a series of bombings and deaths during the 1960's and 1970's. The felquistes (the name given to its members) claimed an independent and socialist Quebec. Indeed, the FLQ wants the total independence of the Quebec from Canada making it as a free society. The FLQ also wants more recognition for the common working people from Quebec. Even though the group is in decline from the 1970's, its ideas was always present in Quebec region, in different forms. What is more, the Front de Libération du Québec has an important position in the Canadian history and has its place in the modern and popular culture. Indeed, many films, comics or books deal with this subject, fuelling the nostalgia among the people.
