California’s Independence Movement, which strives for the state's independence from the United States, would like to see the UN Security Council veto power abolished as it causes inequality among countries, the movement's chief told Sputnik.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — At the moment, five permanent members of the UN Security Council (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States) hold the veto power, which allows them to block any resolutions that other countries push forward.

"I think the veto power is probably one of the worst parts of the UN because it doesn’t allow for the equality of the nations… It should be the organization of the United Nations but not the group of five nations with veto power. All members should be equal," Marinelli said.

California secession movement has reached new level of popularity as the United Kingdom voted in June to leave the European Union. The organization is collecting signatures to start the process of leaving the United States.

On September 25, Moscow hosted an international conference dedicated to the right of nations to self-determination. Marinelli attended the event among other campaigners for independence.

Marinelli added that an independent California would join the United Nations. He also stressed that the new nation would support every people's right to self-determination as well as worldwide peacekeeping efforts.
