LOS ANGELES  — About 500 sympathizers of the Occupy Wall Street protest are marching in the downtown Los Angeles financial district.

The protesters, chiefly a coalition of labor unions, gathered Thursday morning between the Bank of America tower and Wells Fargo Plaza, chanting "Banks got bailed out, we got sold out."

The demonstrators plan to march several blocks to 4th and Figueroa streets, near the Chase and Union bank towers.

Good Jobs LA, a coalition that includes labor organizations, community groups and others, is organizing the protest. Many are wearing purple Service Employees International Union jackets and T-shirts.

Police are monitoring the protest.
