Anova-Nationalist Brotherhood (Galician: ANOVA-Irmandade Nacionalista, Anova) is a political party of Galicia. Formed in 2012, under the guidance of historical leader Xosé Manuel Beiras, Anova was formed by Encontro Irmandiño (2012 split of the BNG), the FPG, Movemento pola Base (small 2009 split of the BNG), the Galician Workers Front (2012 split of the BNG) and independent militants. Anova defines itself as a Galician nationalist, socialist, feminist, Galician "independentist", ecologist and internationalist organization. Its internal organization is run by assemblies.

To contest the 2012 Galician parliamentary election, Anova decided to form a coalition with the United Left, Equo, and the Espazo Ecosocialista Galego. The coalition was called Galician Left Alternative; it won 9 seats (5 United Left, 4 Anova), becoming the third-largest party in the Galician Parliament, displacing the Galician Nationalist Bloc, and coming second in most of the major cities of Galicia.[4]

In 2014 a critical political organization within the party, called CERNA, was created. CERNA left the party after the results of the second National Assembly of Anova.[5][6]
