The Alaskan Independence Party is a political party in the U.S. state of Alaska. Its most well-known plank is its call for a vote on secession, which they claim should have been offered as an option in the plebiscite on statehood under international law. Ideologically libertarian, the party also calls for increased Alaskan control of Alaskan land, gun rights, privatization, and an end to environmental regulation.
