Protesters upset with how world leaders have handled global economic woes completed their rally near the World Bank and International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington. Dozens of demonstrators marched several blocks Sunday afternoon from Dupont Circle to a park across from the World Bank building. They held signs that read "Globalize Justice" and chanted, "Obama, don't lie to me. Banks don't bring democracy." Organizers say participants are outraged that leaders at the Group of 20 summit pledged earlier this month to boost IMF funding. Protests were also held Saturday.
