1.2 Largest group: Trudoviks (radicals) - Kadets - The Progressivists (liberal middle class business men).
1.3 All groups wanted further reform e.g. land/amnesty.
1.4 Dissolved only 72 days later by the Tsar. Only 2 resolutions passed: one against capital punishment + one in favour of famine relief.
2 The Vyborg Manifesto
