Who exactly is seeking Jersey's independence?

Not long ago we blogged some potential moves in Jersey, which is frightened of European Union moves in the area of tax havenry, to move towards full independence from Britain. But who exactly is pushing this? This Tax Research blog about a conference discussing the idea says it all.

As it notes:

"One of the most striking features of last week’s sovereignty conference was the total lack of participation by politicians."

Jersey was, I have read, colonised by Calvinists after the Reformation. Presumably refugees from the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685.
