Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

Mexican Caravanistas Against the Drug Wars; Ending Mass Incarceration with Jazz Hayden - 27:17  

Mexican Caravanistas Cross Border & Journey Across US, Their Message, Peace, Justice & Dignity, No To The Increasing Militarization In The Fight Against Drug Abuse

Mexican activists in the first bi-national caravan of more than 115 mostly victims of the drug war arrived in New York on their month-long journey across the US. They called attention to organized crime, money laundering by HSCB, Citibank and other greedy financial institutions who they say are equally responsible for the bloodshed caused by the drug merchants and corrupt Mexican government officials serving them and supported as well by the US government. Memorializing the more than 60,000 who have died, which includes the son of poet Javier Sicilia, a caravan organizer, on both sides of the border, the message is to stop militarizing and treat drug abuse as a public health problem, not a war.
