Protesters chant outside U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York, June 30, 2009. General Motors filed for bankruptcy on last month, forcing the 100-year-old automaker once seen as a symbol of American economic might and dynamism into a new and uncertain era of government ownership. The protesters, retired workers from Ohio and Mississippi, were concerned that when GM emerges from bankruptcy, they would not be required to pay pensions and health care.
