Police arrest protesters on Market Street Bridge

Police have started making arrests of Occupy Philly protesters on the Market Street Bridge.

A couple of hundred Occupy Philly protesters marched from City Hall to the bridge Thursday afternoon as part of the national "day of action" movement.

Police gave the protesterse a series of three verbal warnings and then started making arrests.

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.
