The Movement for the Independence of Sicily (Movimento per l'Indipendenza della Sicilia, MIS) was a separatist political movement with the goal of obtaining the independence of Sicily from Italy. The party has its roots in the Sicilian Independence Movement, which was founded by Andrea Finocchiaro in April 1943, and was active until 1947. The organization's youth movement was founded in 1944.

MIS survived for a long time as a pressure group under the direction of Francesco Mazza Fasanaro. In 2006, the movement announced its return to politics.
