Occupy Seattle plans march to University Bridge

SEATTLE (AP) -- Occupy Seattle demonstrators expect to have 1,000 people march to the University Bridge Thursday afternoon as part of a national day of action demanding jobs, not cuts.

Police spokesman Mark Jamieson says police are aware of the planned march and the city has been working with organizers.

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.
