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.

South and Occupy Charlotte

No, say it ain’t so – was it really so that the Democratic National Convention(DNC) had the chutzpa to convene, of all days, on Labor Day, in a nonunion convention hall, in a right to work state? Well, it’s true! So, there’s all the more reason to join and build bridges with the worker advocates that converged in Charlotte last week. We bring you on the ground coverage with southern worker coalitions organizing public and private sector workers for labor rights in their Southern Workers Assembly; and other activists from across the country who converged on Wall Street South (the second largest concentration of finance capital in the
U.S., after N.Y.C.).
Undocumented Immigrants’ Freedom Bus Ride!

Undocumented immigrants taking a page from the civil rights movement rode on a bus for justice from Arizona to Charlotte, N.C. to the Democratic National Convention. Across the states they challenged the champions of prejudice by their voices, and with actions against discrimination, harassment, and deportation. They are ready to move the country forward and they demanded that the Democratic Party match their courage by stopping the arrests and deportations and enacting comprehensive immigration reform.
