On Monday September 19, the German Social Democrats (SPD) are meeting in Wolfsburg for a party convention to discuss their position on CETA. The meeting is going to be decisive: If the 200 SPD delegates vote against CETA, Germany’s Vice-Chancellor Gabriel will have to stop CETA.
The party is deeply divided about the issue. Many party groupings and prominent party members have pleaded to vote against CETA. A twitterstorm on Monday will strengthen the resolve of sceptical delegates that are traveling to Wolfsburg and gathering in a closed-shop meeting in the afternoon (beginning 1pm CET).
