SEATTLE (AP) -- About 150 Occupy Seattle demonstrators are marching toward the University Bridge in Seattle as part of a national day of action demanding jobs.

March organizers are hoping for up to 1,0000 people to rally later Thursday in the University District. Seattle police say to expect traffic delays.

Police clashed with Occupy Seattle demonstrators Tuesday and arrested six who blocked downtown traffic. Officers used pepper spray to disperse the crowd, which included an 84-year-old woman.

Mayor Mike McGinn apologized Wednesday and asked police to review their use of the spray.
