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.

Egypt's Second Revolution - 27:50  

"Street Action" is the Kernel of Revolution”
Egypt’s Second Revolution

Atef Said, Egyptian human rights lawyer and scholar, author of two books about torture in Egypt, currently working on his dissertation about the Egyptian revolution
Sherief Gaber, Mosireen Independent Media Collective in Cairo

What is the Egyptian revolution if not "street action", the ability to express yourself and be heard said Bassem Youssef a popular Egyptian satirist on his popular show “Al Bernameg,” of the growth of the grass-roots Tamarrod movement.  Just as with the 2011 revolution, this "second revolution" began with youth activists, and now has spread like wildfire through the population.  The Egyptian revolution is far from over and we’ll go on the ground live to Egypt to ferret out the forces that comprise the Tamarrod movement, 
examine the civil stratification in the wake of deposed present Morsi failure in leading Egypt on a democratic path, parse out the role historically and currently of the Egyptian military and determine the promise of a revolution that is far from over.
