English People's Liberation Army

The English People's Liberation Army was a paramilitary English nationalist organisation.

The organisation may have originated as a split from the Maoist Working People's Party of England. The Army's ideology called for the independence of England from "Judeo-fascist" forces.

According to the Dictionary of Terrorism, it was "extremely weak" but had "undertaken isolated bomb attacks". In 1983, it claimed responsibility for a parcel bomb sent to the headquarters of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

Barberis et al claim that the organisation may have had links to the Oliver Cromwell Republican Party, founded in 1977. This minor organisation, led by Paul Pawlowski, later renamed the Republican Party of England, is best known for its leader's demonstration against the wedding of Charles and Diana in 1981.
