Protest targets Goldman's billions

Anger in Washington DC over $20bn in bonuses paid to Goldman Sachs executives.



    A crowd of protesters have gathered outside the Washington DC headquarters of banking giant Goldman Sachs.

    The protesters were angry at the more than $20bn in bonuses paid to Goldman Sachs executives.

    Now the company is spending millions more lobbying the US congress against legislation giving the government the authority to break up big financial institutions.
