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.

Building Bridges: UN Haiti Occupation Must End Say Trade Union Leaders From Latin America & Caribbean  

Building Bridges Special
for January 1st, Haiti’s 209th Independence Day

Trade Union Leaders From Latin America & Caribbean
Demand UN Haiti Occupation End!
. Julio Turra, National Exec. Dir. , United Trade Union Central

Workers (CATH);
. Jocelyn Lapitre, leader with Front Against Profit (LKP), Guadeloupe
. Alan Benjamin, Intl. Liaison Committee of Workers & Peoples (ILC)


January 1st marks the 209th anniversary of Haitian independence. And, in commemoration of Haiti, the 1st Black Republic in the world Building Bridges talks with world-renowned trade union representatives both about the issues of their working classes and about their demand that the foreign military occupation of Haiti known as the UN Mission to Stabilize Haiti or MINUSTAH,
deployed since 2004 immediately end, and that Haiti’s sovereignty and right to self-determination be respected.

The delegation was part of a broad continental campaign that came to the UN to tell its officials “if the United Nations genuinely wants to help the Haitian people, they should do like Cuba and Venezuela. These are the two countries that really helped Haiti after, and even before, the earthquake. There is not a single Cuban or Venezuelan soldier on Haiti’s territory. But there are Cuban doctors. There is Venezuelan oil. Venezuela and Cuba are building an international airport in Cap Haitien. This is the kind of help that Haiti needs.We have problems of roads, water, electricity, and food. Haiti does not need soldiers! Instead of giving us soldiers, give us technicians. We don’t need soldiers they don’t help us with any development. On the contrary, they killed thousands of Haitians by bringing cholera to Haiti, explained the Haitian
labor representative
