Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

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

WHO WE ARE

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.

Sandy Survivors' Health Emergency - 27:40  

Health Care Workers Tell Bloomberg:
We’re Not Meeting Sandy Survivors’ Health Needs   


Members of the NYS Nurses Association, NY Physicians for a National Health Program, DC 37, Local 436 of the United Federation of Nurses and Epidemiologists, and other health care organizations, along with Occupy Wall Street demonstrated at City Hall protesting that thousands of New Yorkers who are homeless, or trapped in their homes without power, without elevator service, and heat and hot water are experiencing a health emergency. The healthcare responders recounted their experiences and articulated the medical services needed for the hurricane’s victims in Staten Island, the Rockaways, Coney Island, and Red Hook. They also emphasized the need to expedite reopening local clinics and Coney Island and Bellevue Hospitals to provide care for their

communities.
