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.

ICEd in the Biggest Immigration Raid Yet
Bill Chandler, Executive Dir., Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance (MIRA)

In the biggest workplace immigration crackdown yet, federal officials raided a
factory in Laurel Mississippi detaining almost 600 workers they claimed were
in the country illegally. Numerous agents from Immigration and Customs
Enforcement descended on a factory belonging to Howard Industries Inc.,
which manufactures electrical transformers, among other products. **********************************************************
Dr. Phillip Butler knew McCain as a fellow POW
byRobert Greenwald and the Brave New PAC team

John McCain has been exploiting his prisoner of war experience every
chance he gets. He has used this story to justify everything from not knowing
how many homes he has to his healthcare plan to his marital infidelities to his
taste in music. The McCain campaign is even using his POW story in paid ads.
But now a veteran who was a prisoner with McCain in Vietnam is explaining
loud and clear that being a POW does not qualify McCain to lead our country. **********************************************************
