The Liberte de Quebec is a Quebecois sovereignist organization based in Quebec. Hans Gruber demanded the leaders of the organization be released (as an excuse to get the FBI over to Nakatomi Plaza).


Hans Gruber made a fake demand to have the U.S. government released five imprisoned leaders of Liberte de Quebec, among others, to get the FBI over to Nakatomi Plaza.


The organization is likely based off the real life Front de libération du Québec (FLQ), a militant Quebec separatist group that kidnapped two government officials, accidentally killing one, in 1970. This event, known today as the October Crisis, saw Canada's only invocation of martial law in peacetime.
