The Tourneser Fredom Front insurgency (French: Insurrection du front tournesolaire de la liberté), is an ongoing civil war between the Continental Republic of Tournesol led by Jeanne-Lucille Desmarais, along with foreign allies, and several domestic groups and foreign volunteers united under the banner of the Tourneser Freedom Front (French: Front tournesolaire de la liberté) led by Michel Moreau. It is currently the most active conflict on the North American continent.

The unrest in Tournesol grew out of discontent with the mismanagement of the Tourneser economy by the Continentalist Party of Labor (French: Parti continentaliste de labeur), the ruling party of Tournesol, leading to massive debt and an economy only held together by aid fro the United Commonwealth. This unrest escalated during the August 31st, 2019 protests against Desmarais and the CPL broke out in Topèque, Ouichite and Tours. After government troops attack the protesters in all three cities and manage to overpower them in all cities but Tours, the leader of the protests in Tours Octavien Thibaut and well-known Tourneser exile Michel Moreau give a speech declaring war on the Continentalist regime, founding the Tourneser Freedom Front, consisting of several groups, including the Organization of Amerindian Tournesers (French: Organisation des Amerindiens tournesolaires), the National Dirigist Movement (French: Mouvement dirigiste national) and the large Tourneser People’s Party (French: Parti populaire tournesolaire), which was the leader of Tournesers in exile.

The United Commonwealth, the Mesoamerican Security Organization and the Provisional Sierran Republican Army support the Continental Republic of Tournesol and the People's Continental Armed Forces militarily, with the UC planning to do military airstrikes against anti-Continental targets.
