Bashu nationalism (traditional Chinese: 巴蜀民族主義; simplified Chinese: 巴蜀民族主义; pinyin: Bāshǔ mínzú zhǔyì; Sichuanese Pinyin: Ba1su2 min2quo2 zu3nyi4) is an independence movement in Sichuan Province, China. Liu Zhongjing, who invented the term "Basuria" (巴蜀利亞; 巴蜀利亚; Bāshǔlìyǎ), calls for the rejection of Han Chinese culture and the de-Sinicization of Sichuan.[2] He has advocated for the secession of Basuria and other states from China.[2]


The term "Basuria" is a neologism coined by Liu Zhongjing, who wants an independent political entity for the Bashu people to separate from China and become a country of its own.[2] Basuria is an attempt to resurrect the Tribal Confederation of Ba and the Kingdom of Shu, both of which were conquered by the State of Qin in 316 BCE.[2]

In 2011, author and political critic Liao Yiwu expressed his wish for an independent Sichuan, stating that he will return to his homeland if Sichuan is separated.[3] In 2016, writer and activist Yu Jie also expressed his wish for an independent Sichuan.[4]

From 2007 onwards, Liu Zhongjing started publishing and posting under the name "数卷残编" and started to gain followers.[2] Liu believes that the best course for the Bashu people is to seek independence from China.[2] As of 2018, he seemingly relocated to the United States.[2] On July 21, 2021, Liu Zhongjing was interviewed by Radio Free Asia about Basurian independence, as the Acting President (臨時大總統) of the Republic of Basuria.[5]
