Proposed move to a new title[edit]

I suggest changing the title of this article to "Sicilian Independence Movement". I think the current title is grammaticaly incorrect and represents a mistranslation of "Movimento Indipendentista Siciliano". Moreover, by looking at which term is actually used in books to describe the movement, googlebooks gives 31 hits[1] for "Sicilian Independence Movement" and only 1 hit[2] for "Sicilian Independentist Movement". Similarly, googlenews gives only 1 hit[3] for "Sicilian Independentist Movement" and 4 hits[4] for "Sicilian Independence Movement" This book[5] specifically identifies "Sicilian Independence Movement" as M.I.S. So the name "Sicilian Independence Movement" seems to be both the more commonly used and the more correct translation of "Movimento Indipendentista Siciliano".
