A couple of hundred Occupy Philly protesters marched from City Hall to the Market Street Bridge Thursday afternoon as part of the national "day of action" movement.
As of 5:45 p.m., about 30 protesters were sitting on the bridge over the Schuylkill River refusing to move. Police are giving them a series of three verbal warnings and then plan to start making arrests, said Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan.
"We'll make it a painless process for everyone," he said.
Organizers said they chose the bridge because it's on the state's list of structurally deficient bridges in need of repair. They want repairs done to the bridge that would create jobs.
