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.

Black, Latino, Asian American Unionists March for Occupy Wall Street 27:56  

Neither Rain Nor Snow Stop Black, Latino, Asian American
Unionists March for Occupy Wall Street

Despite the rain and snow of the season’s first big storm hundreds
in NYC braved the weather to hail Occupy Wall Street and vowed
to help protect the protesters from the increasingly inclement
weather as winter approaches and the increasing attacks by the
city governments nationwide. The rally at City Hall and march to
the Occupy site at Wall Street’s Freedom Square was organized by
the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, the Labor Council for Latin
American Advancement, the NAACP and the Asian, Pacific
American Labor Alliance all representing workers who have been
particularly hard hit by the recession. This Rally and March signaled
the increasing movement of people of color both in support and
joining the Occupy Wall Street movement.
