The NSW Counter Terrorism and Special Tactics command assessment obtained by 7.30 suggests there are as many as 300 sovereign citizens in the state, and that their numbers are growing.
It also suggests they have "the motivation and capability to act against government interests and should be considered a potential terrorist threat".
Police records show the number of Australian sovereign citizens in NSW doubled from 2009 to 2011 and nearly tripled from 2009 to 2012.
Interactions with police increased 50 per cent in 2011, with a "notable increase in threats of violence".
In the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies sovereign citizen extremists as domestic terrorists.

The story doesn't make it clear how racism is essential to the movement. Look up the history of the Posse Comitatus and the Christian Identity movement, it's chilling.
