The large demonstrations expected across Germany against further democracy-destroying trade agreements will focus on CETA (aka TTIP through the back door).

On top of that CETA faces a constitutional challenge and has a number of hurdles to pass before it becomes ratified.

Whether we can shame the SPD into voting it out before it reaches the courts remains to be seen.
