#Montenegro Women Protest Cuts in Mothers’ State Aid
Local Editor

Dozens of women braved cold weather to spend the night outside Montenegro’s government headquarters in protest of cuts in state aid for mothers of three or more children - part of the government’s austerity measures.


Financial help for some 21,500 women in Montenegro has been slashed by twenty-five percent amid efforts to tighten public spending. About half of the women on the list are jobless.

The protesters demanded Friday the government reverse its decision. They argued the state should save money elsewhere before reducing aid for mothers.
