St. Petersburg League of Struggle for the Emancipation of the Working Class was a leftwing group in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was founded by Lenin in the autumn of 1895.[1]

The League was transporting its illegal literature through Finland and Stockholm in the end of the 1890s. Transportation was organised by Hjalmar Branting, a Swedish Social-Democrat, Carder, a Norwegian Social-Democrat, and A. Weidel, a Swedish worker who settled in Finland for that purpose. But Garder's arrest in 1900 disrupted the arrangement and the route via Finland. A route running from Stockholm to Åbo and across the Russian frontier was restarted in 1901.[2]

On December 8, 1895, a number of League members were arrested, Lenin among them. While in prison, Lenin continued to guide the work of the League.

In the autumn of 1900, the League merged with the St. Petersburg Workers' Organisation.[3]
