Over 20 pregnant ladies organized a protest rally in front of Almaty Labor and Social Protection Department over downsizing of maternity benefits.
Wearing t-shirts reading 'I want to give birth' the women dedicated to minister of labor and social protection a package of toys, diapers and pregnancy tests, citing they won't need these anymore, as maternity leave is no longer a cheap entertainment.
Still with a sense of humor, protesters decided to award the minister Serik Abdenov with a special 'diploma' and tagged his ministry 'the best contraceptive of the year.'
Benefit cuts will impact women with monthly salaries over T186,000 [$1,240]. From now they will receive a single payment of no more than T700,000.
The amendment outraged Kazakh female citizens.
After the rally, women marched to the post office to send the parcel to minister Abdenov.
