Supporters of the Occupy Wall Street movement started staging protests in New Jersey where many banks also have offices.The thing is they’re not as big as the massive movement taking place in Manhattan’s Financial District.

So outside of Goldman Sachs’s Trenton offices yesterday, there appeared to be more police that demonstrators, Bloomberg News reported.

Maybe that’s a good idea! Some of the protesters apparently want Lloyd’s head on a stick.

From Bloomberg:

About 50 people gathered at a Goldman Sachs building surrounded by metal barricades in Jersey City, where 30 to 40 officers and guards were waiting. The investment bank’s employees watched from windows as the crowd chanted “We are the 99 per cent” before the breaking into discussion groups.

According to a report from Asbury Park Press, this what the New Jersey Occupy Wall Streeters were chanting: “Hey-hey, ho-ho, Goldman Sachs has got to go!”

It’s kind of catchy.
