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.

The Central Park Five, Exonerated But Justice Still Denied! - 28'

A long-delayed $250 million NYC civil suit finally goes to trial this year —putting the reputations of some of the city’s most powerful on the line. After 22 years the then teens, Kharey Wise, Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam and Raymond Santana, are no longer convicted felons or registered sex offenders, but they’re still best known as the Central Park 5. Each served from 7 to 13 years in prison for a rape they didn’t commit, after Mayor Koch, the police, prosecutors and the media, along with mogul Donald Trump, who actively advocated for the death penalty for the youth, whipped the city into a racist lynch mob. Now, 22 years & counting, after five convictions, then one shocking confession that upended the lives of all involved the Central Park jogger case is about to break open again — pitting the city’s most powerful crime fighters against each other and the teens they wrongly jailed for the attack, who still await justice.

    One never knows when it will be necessary to protect rights. That is why I created a directory of good US lawyers who always can help. While reading your articles I came to conclusion that you are a legal professional and can recommend best attorneys to this directory. You can submit lawyers to the section of Florida civil attorneys or other appropriate sections. There is also a possibility for lawyers to publish legal news and articles as well as posting to Attorney Blog. I think, it can be useful to many of your friends who provide legal services.
