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.

Wall Street Protests - Bail Out the People  

Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
National Edition 27 minutes
The Bail Out Our Streets, Not Wall Street Protests. Thousands and thousands of protesters marched to and rallied on Wall Street on April 3rd and 4th. The actions were sponsored by the Bail Out the People Coalition and United for Peace and Justice, both coalitions fighting to make clear it’s the people, who are suffering in the current economic downturn, not the financial institutions who created the crisis, that must be bailed out. Looming large and stimulating the protest messages was the figure of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. whose efforts on behalf of striking Memphis sanitation workers when he was gunned down April 4 1968, echoed through the mass gatherings.
