Red Moors (Italian: Rosso Mori, RM) is a regionalist (separatist[2]) and social-democratic political party in Sardinia.

The party was founded in 2009 as a left-wing split from the Sardinian Action Party (Psd'Az), after the Psd'Az had signed an electoral pact with The People of Freedom, the main centre-right party in Italy.[3] In the 2009 regional election the RM won 2.5% of the vote, despite not being on the ballot in three provincial constituencies out of eight, and one regional councillor, Claudia Zuncheddu.[4] The list did better in the province of Sassari (4.2%) and the province of Nuoro (3.3%).[5]

In the 2010 provincial elections the Red Moors improved their share of vote and were particularly strong in Medio Campidano (7.1%), the province of Nuoro (4.2%) and the province of Cagliari (3.1%).[6]

In January 2011 Zuncheddu left the party in order to join Independence Republic of Sardinia.[7][8] This caused a major upheaval within the party, which was left without representation in the Regional Council.[9]

However the party pushed back and, in the 2014 regional election, it won 2.6% of the vote and two regional councillors.[10]

È a fianco dei sardi nella lotta per l’autodeterminazione e la sua liberazione, per costruire la Nazione Sarda, la sua Sovranità, la sua Indipendenza in una Europa di popoli e nazioni solidali e uguali. Siamo un movimento identitario, solidale, progressista, antifascista, popolare e di sinistra, quindi anticolonialista e figlio del miglior azioniamo, che crede nella democrazia partecipata e ne fa strumento della propria azione politica per la Liberazione, l’Autodeterminazione, la Sovranità e l’Indipendenza del popolo sardo.
