Corsica Libera (English: Free Corsica) is a political party seeking independence for Corsica. It was founded in Corte in February 2009 by members of three nationalist parties, Corsica Nazione, Rinnovu and the Corsican Nationalist Alliance

Corsica Libera advocates full independence for Corsica and it does not condemn the violent actions by groups such as the National Liberation Front of Corsica. The party distinguished itself with its symbolic occupation of Christian Clavier's Corsican residence, The party has three seats in the Corsican Assembly and a number of local councillors, including the mayor of Granace.

The party's candidate in the 2010 territorial elections, Jean-Guy Talamoni, won 9.36% of the vote and qualified for the runoff.
