The protest was organized by several women’s groups despite the mall’s retraction of the prohibition.

Organizers say they expect some one thousand women to participate in the exercise of their right of freedom to breastfeed their babies in public.

The mall administration publiclu apologized following the publicity surrounding the woman who was told she had to breastfeed her baby in the secluded area of the mall.

The mall also received a scathing letter from presidenta Laura Chinchilla.

Breastfeeding in public in Costa Rica is commonplace. Just about anywhere, anytime women will pull out a breast to heed to the needs of a child. Some will cover up, while others have no problem exposing a breast in public.
